GREAT FISHING GETAWAY – JULY 22-25
It’s an annual tradition (minus a COVID cancellation in 2020) of fishing, feasting (think Dutch Oven Pies and a Fish Fry), and forging friendships centered on our faith in Jesus, and it’s happening at Birch Lake State Forrest Campground (near Melrose, MN)!
- This trip is open to anyone 10-years-old through adults who like to fish or just want to give it a try!
- Any adults with resources we could use, please contact Larry Giebenhain at 763.222.5482 or Heath Nelson at 612.363.7746.
- Resources include gear (rods/reels, tents) that could be used by novice fisherpeople who don’t have their own, and boats/kayaks/canoes that could be used by campers (boats driven by you or another adult).
- Never fished before? No problem! In fact, that’s great! You’re the very person this trip was created for! We have a great group of people willing to teach you the ropes.
As we draw nearer to the date we’ll inform people of COVID guidelines we need to employ.
Cost: $45 (covers the group campsite and meals for the entire time) or $15 per day (for any portion of a day). You need to secure your license and bring $15 for a possible stop or two during the trip.
PLEASE REGISTER BY SUNDAY, JULY 11!
We’ll load up at 8 am on Thursday at the Church Office (11373 150th Avenue SE, Becker) and should return around 3 pm on Sunday.
If you’re unable to join us until Friday or need to leave a day early, let us know so we can coordinate rides.
