Ice Fishing at Crooked Lake

The Yorkton and Melville Knights of Columbus held their second Annual Family Fun Day of free ice fishing, some hockey, barbeque and fraternity.
The event was held at Melville Beach, Crooked Lake. Thanks go out to Wayne and Terry Exner, who lined up the food. Terry also provided his fireplace, his expertise of filleting, drilling holes and being supportive to parents and children who needed help to bait for fishing and also catching some fish.
Andrew helped with barbeque, tent(warm up) and the auger to drill holes. Andrew also supported parents and children and had a 7, 8,3 lb Northern Pike to make up a fine day of a catch. Thank you goes out to Ted Osicki and his cousin Erbach, who drilled holes and provided a portable port-o-potty. The people mentioned above and myself set up the site for the event of the day.
Thanks also go out to Johannes and Ingrid Prost for supplying the cake dessert. Thank you to Rejean Houle, who supported the event on behalf of the Council #2031. Special guests, Fr. Louis and Fr. Andrew from Yorkton and Melville respectfully, came and added extra excitement to the event. Fr. Louis, as unique an individual as he is, has this warm, energetic presents, in that people love about him and want to be around him. This Fr. Louis lit up the ice surface with his Vietnam friends, nuns and/or sisters. I’m not sure, I haven’t spoken to him on this yet.
The morning started out at a temp of -24 degrees, in the afternoon it came up to -16 degrees. There were approximately 50-60 people(including children) coming and going. In total, five fish were caught: 3 Northern Pike, 1 Perch, 1 Tulibee(White Fish). Some were filleted, barbequed and eaten on site. Tasty and you know what? 12 baskets were left over or there abouts.
Pictures were taken throughout the day and they are posted on line.

The weather may have been a little cold---that may have affected some people from coming. All in all, this event The Family Fun Day was very much a success and can only continue to get better. For people who are contemplating in coming, there is always next year, which is held every February FAMLY DAY.

Thank you to the parishioners and friends for your support and involvement on this special day. Thank you once again. Thank you to Karalyn Exner for supplying the pictures.

Take Care Out There,
Br. Brian Exner
