Our second annual fall get-together

. . .at Beaver’s Resort was a success last Saturday with 17 people in attendance (at least that’s what I counted) and lots of lively conversation and good feelings all around. It’s always sad to see another season end, but this is a great way to say farewell! I took a couple of pictures of the group but they were a little blurry and the light was bad, so, instead, enjoy this photo of some otters who visited the north end of the lake on a gorgeous morning last week. Before it started to snow!

Beaver’s Resort Musky Tournament 2019

What do you do on a cold rainy day? Why fish in a Musky tournament on beautiful Lake of the Falls of course!

Twelve boats braved the cold, wet., windy elements but only one boat had the winning fish.

The winner was Jason Burmesch with his 40 1/2 inch musky.

Here is a picture of the fish and Jason holding his first place trophy which was made by Joe Chivers.

Congratulations to Jason.

Our 2nd annual end-of-summer get together

Come out to Beaver’s for supper or just for drinks and enjoy the company of your neighbors as we say farewell to another great season on the lake! Saturday, October 12 starting at about 6:30. Hope to see a lot of you there!

Come to our annual picnic on Sunday, August 4!

The LOFA annual general membership meeting and picnic will be held on Sunday, August 4 at Beaver’s Resort on Lake of the Falls Road. The meeting will start at 11:00 am with the picnic immediately following.

We’ll vote for new officers (Vice President, Treasurer, and three at-large directors), talk about  our new Fish Count Forms, and anything else lake-related that you’d like to discuss. Questions? Concerns? This is a great time to bring them up!

Please feel free to bring family members and houseguests. Our menu will include brats, burgers, and beverages; if you would like to bring a dish to pass, please feel free to do so, and bring your lawn chairs if you have them. If you haven’t already paid your membership dues, you can pay them at the picnic, and if you would like to participate in the 50/50 raffle, don’t forget to bring some cash! And we’ll have our beautiful LOFA membership signs on sale for $25 each.

Tent set-up will be Saturday, July 28 at about 10:00 am. Volunteers are always needed, so please help out if you can.

Come on out! It’s a great way to meet your neighbors around the lake. Hope to see you there.

Turtle crossings and meeting minutes

Please remember to report your turtle sightings to the Wisconsin Turtle Conservation Program! Let’s help them make life better for our little hard-shelled buddies.  Here is the link to do so.  This page also links to information about natural history, species identification, how to protect turtle nests, and much more.

And, completely unrelated, here are the minutes from the LOFA Board’s May 26 meeting at Beaver’s.
