    Will be there with bells on! We'll have to catch up and put some beer away Mike. I think I'll round up a partner and get in the horseshoe tourney.

    Most of the guys who signed up for horseshoes played in the Cheboygan league. Experience did not make a difference while playing on ice. We realized very quickly we needed to change the point system to 10 vs 21. Some games still took 45 minutes. Stakes were 3/4” conduit so the shoe would bounce off sometimes by 6’.

    I play back yard shoes maybe once a year and still took 3rd which didn’t sit well with the league guys. It was a lot of fun. The best part of the day is that I had a DD.

    I’ll be looking for you to bring another monster in.

    Yes. It's clean and decent. It's been remodeled and is nice. Showers are tight. The heat in the room that we had wasn't working well but we survived. The parking can be tight depending on how many others have trailers. The price was great. This was two Shivarees ago.

    Only when I'm in BIG trouble at home...
    Don't drag your feet on booking a room. You have fisherman, snowmobilers, and every CO in the state looking for a place to bunk that weekend.

    I will be going this year as well. Looking forward to it. I just purchased a place about 4 miles from the lake. I am a little worried about parking. How does that work. I might just ride the ATV and pull the sled from my camp to the lake. Looks like a great time. I will be riding on a camo Polaris ATV with metal sled and wood box on top. If you see me say hello. I will have two passengers on the sled.

    Depends on where you're getting on the ice. If the ice is good, there's plenty of parking on the ice off zolner road. If not, you'd be better off to ride your quad from home

    Thanks for the info. Not sure I am comfortable parking my Truck on the ice. I will ride from home.

    If people are parking there, it's frozen to the bottom. Very shallow there

    Good to know!!! If I drive the atv I will enter the lake on the north west side. Does this lake have a current I should be aware of?
