Tip Up Town

A few weeks ago I took my sister in law Debbie, niece Michelle and nephew Jimmy up to the cabin for Tip Up Town. They wanted to go see the polar bear dip. Temperature wise it was not to bad in the low 30's and no wind.

Here are the first two folks to go in. As you can see the fire department, paramedics and rescue divers are standing by.
There are some crazy people that take part in this event. The next picture is OH so wrong in so many ways. We were not sure why this guy dressed like this but it was both disturbing and funny all at the same time. Prepare yourself and scroll down.

What we wanted to know what the bet was and did he win or lose it.

Here is Michelle going down the ice slide.

Here we are in front of the Tip Up Town ice sculpture. It was the
the 60th anniversary of the event.

Back on Trout Lake a pic of my shanty as dusk falls.

Michelle all bundled up. This is the first time she has gone ice fishing.

Michelle' s first ice fishing fish. Go Michelle!!!

Here is were I was sitting, going after the crappies. Everything you need, a bucket to sit on, a rod and rod holder, a scooper, Coleman lantern and the most important thing a beer.

After a full day outside in the cold it is good to come inside and warm up by the fire.

Looks like it was a great weekend. I like the shot of your shanty at dusk.

Now wasn't that a fashion statement! I have never tried ice fishing. It looks cold but productive. With my fishing record, however, I might have to find ways to keep warm for a long time. - Margy
