If you are looking for a way to beat the winter blues, look no further than right here in Marshall County! We hope that you will help us in welcoming the 2nd annual Culver Winter Festival and North American Ice Fishing Circuit (NAIFC) Tournament.
Sledding, ice skating, ice sculpture demonstrations, even an Ice Camp for kids are some of the activities that you will be able to participate in during the Winter Fest! The Ice Camp for kids will be help on February 14, 2015 from 1-3 p.m. at the Culver Fire Station. This is an opportunity to experience in-class and on-ice fishing tutorials delivered by experienced, DNR certified NAIFC Pro-Staff instructors. Although this Ice Camp is geared towards kids, all family members are encouraged to attend regardless of age!
For those of you who love the cold the Culver Beard Club is hosting its 2nd annual PolarPlunge on Lake Maxinkuckee! A Polar Plunge is a group of people or individuals that jump into freezing cold water…for fun! The Polar Plunge will take place immediately following the weigh-in of the NAIFC Ice Fishing Tournament, around 2 p.m. on February 15, 2015.
The NAIFC Culver Qualifying Tournament is open to the first 150 two-person teams that enter. NAIFC tournaments operate much like a Bassmaster or FLW event. Fishing boundaries are set: teams drill their own holes, portable fish shelters are allowed, and walking, ATVs, and snowmobiles are the modes of transportation. The tournament’s fishing hours are from 8:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. on Sunday February 15th and the fish species will be Bluegill and Perch.
This will be a fantastic, fun event over the Valentine’s Day weekend so for those couples out there, enjoy a fun Winter Fest and stop in and see what the local shops and restaurants are offering for Valentine’s Day! A little bit of fun added into your love day! We hope to see many of you out there! Have fun and be safe! Until next time…
