Lake Lida

Pelican Rapids, Minnesota

September 2000

Nine or ten guys came this year, however there weren't too many pictures for one reason or another.  Most everyone (except Rob) caught fish every time they left the dock.  Rob did win the big fish pot though - he went for quality rather than quantity.

The images are "thumbnails."  Click on the image to view the full size picture.

pr_2000morning.jpg Rob, Jeff and Jim (driving) heading out about 7:00 on an absolutely beautiful morning.  Well, at least they were trying to leave...
pr_2000bungee.jpg The infamous "bungee launch."  Jim will never live it down.  The motor was not strong enough to either break the bungee cord or pull out the piling.  It took a minute for Capt. Jim to realize they weren't going anywhere.
pr_2000fish.jpg Yes, Virginia, there are fish in Lake Lida.
pr_2000boat.jpg Rob and Lee (at the helm) headed out for the big ones
pr_2000shoes1.jpg Horseshoes.  Greg (pitching) and Gary.  Hey, you can't fish all the time!
pr_2000shoes2.jpg Ron (pitching) and Gary.  Jon Solinger didn't like us tearing up his grass, so we changed the venue to the beach.
pr_2000shoes3.jpg Another fast-paced action shot.  L-R: Jim, Lee, Rob, Jeff (pitching).
pr_2000game.jpg Left to right:  Jeff, Gary, Greg, Lee.  Discussing matters of state, i.e., Greg's full house does beat Gary's flush.
pr_2000sunset.jpg You always have to have a sunrise picture.  Like the commercial says: "Guys, it just doesn't get any better than this!"  This should be the OIG retirement poster.
