Bear Lake 2017 - July 28 - Aug 5

5/24 Update:
We now have three rookies for a total of 16 fishermen. Ken Prodan from Arizona, Todd Patton from Indiana, and Dick Warnke from Georgia will be heading North with us to the cool clear waters of Canada. Ken will get some help from Rob and John. All the flyers will get some assistance with provision from Scott and myself. We are excited about enjoying the week with our ROOKIES!

Todd, Chad's cousin, will be coming from the Indianapolis area. He will probably meet us in Gaylord but we can work through the transportation logistics later. Dick is my neighbor at Lake Oconee and will fly into Flint. He will travel to Gaylord with Scott or myself.

I will be ordering tee shirts next week so send me your size. Also as mentioned in my last email, I will buy a case of your favorite beer for the flyers or for states that require a deposit. I am sure Chad will want an IPA!  Remember the $150 that you sent for a deposit will be used as a kitty to reimburse any group expenses.

Our next email will make cabin assignments and dinner assignments. As usual, each cabin will prepare a dinner and any food expense will be reimbursed from the kitty. Mike, with help, will be in charge of two breakfasts during the week.  

Send your shirt size and beer requests along with any questions or comments.

 Wishing all tight lines
