It is that time of the year, time to start thinking ice party! North Bass residents are looking at holding an ice party off of North Bass Jan. 30th, starting at 12:30 p.m. with a wind/ snow date of Feb. 6th. They will have hotdogs, but ask that everyone bring either a can of Bean and Bacon soup or Chicken Noodle as well as whatever it is you intend to drink. How- ever if anyone would like to bring a side dish, appetizer or snacks it would be greatly appreciated. There will also be a contest for the best decorated helmet and vehicle, your choice of theme. Whoever wins will receive a prize of some sorts. There is also talk about holding a snowmobile or 4-wheeler race, put this is still in the planning stages so watch for updates as things unfold. And please do plan on bringing a few bucks because they intend to raffle off one of Kerry’s beautiful hand made drift wood baskets filled with goodies as a fund raiser for the North Bass Church. This is a family event and is open to all of our friends and neighbors across the lake. Can’t wait and hope to see you all there, after all a visit to North Bass is always a great way to while away the day.
