There were plenty of people enjoying the cold at Maple Lake Saturday.  Thousands of people gathered on the lake for time with friends, food, warm fires and every now and then, a big catch.

There were delicious buckets of chicken, beef jerky, steak, and brats.

Romee was keeping up with making the food while buddy Dewey was taste testing.  Fishing took a backseat for these two who were just there for the mingling.

The contest provided lots of prizes for those partaking in the festivities, and it was just fun being there, making new friends and enjoying the cold.  Those that were staying for the long haul had entertainment for the evening under the tent.  I heard there was live music from a group called "The Naked Cowboys."  Now.... I can't say that wouldn't have been interesting to see, but this girl was ready for a warm up after the contest.  I had to run back to the ice house to warm up...My cheeks are numb!

Dewey, Romee, and Todd (far right) looked to me like they were enjoying the food and beverage.  Oh yea.....fishing?   Today......We're letting everyone else compete.  Lets enjoy the great company!
