Wild on the Water Bass Fishing Tournament 7-14 to 7-15

Greetings MLAT Members, I have been asked to contact members regarding the WILD on the Water Bass Fishing tournament being held at Izatys Resort on July 14-15, 2017.  This is a 24 boat tournament with player/coach in each boat The Minnesota WILD just made the final commitment to bring their tournament to Mille Lacs Lake this year and they would love to see it become something on the lines of Arctic Blast.

Izatys would love to make it a bigger and better event and include everyone in the area. Some of the ideas include a pig roast, live bands, food/vendor booths, fun & games, etc. Izatys is  looking to see if you would be interested in helping grow this event by brining in your food/business booth, volunteering, helping plan, etc. Please contact Kevin Mullarky at Izatys at 320-532-4574 or email kmullarky@izatys.com.

Time is of the essence so don’t delay expressing your interest or maybe you have a neighbor, friend or family member who would enjoy working with the MN Wild. Spread the Word! Thanks and we look forward to hearing from you. #dothelake

American Cancer Society Relay for Life 7/28/17


The Wahkon City Council unanimously approved a $1000 donation from the Charitable Gambling (C.G.) Fund to the American Cancer Society 1st Annual Northern Mille Lacs County Relay for Life. This is the first year it will be held in Isle. The C.G. Fund receives 10% of gambling profit from organizations within the city which can be used for park improvements, donations to 501c3 organizations, etc.

The theme is “Getting to know the Relay!” providing a wonderful opportunity to fight cancer and help save more lives. Teams made up of family members, friends, and/or co-workers will camp out at the Isle High School grounds on Fri. 7/28 from 5 p.m. – 1 a.m., taking turns walking a route when the sun goes down with beautiful luminaria lining the track, in honor or memory of those touched by cancer.

Please consider participating in this worthwhile event! Next meeting is Wed. 4/12 at 6:30 pm at Cedarwood Family Restaurant in Onamia. Committee members are needed for advertising, food, luminaria, grounds keepers, silent auction, etc., along with relay teams. Please consider participating and/or helping with this worthwhile event as it can’t be done without dedicated community volunteers!
