Minnesota BHA Friends,
The second annual Minnesota Backcountry Hunters & Anglers Rendezvous is scheduled for August 15–17, 2014. We’ll be setting up camp at a Group campsite in Whitewater State Park west of Rochester. See the maps/links below for additional information: www.dnr.state.mn.us/state_parks/whitewater
[Directions: The park is located 3 miles south of Elba on State Highway 74]
Whitewater State Park is adjacent to 21,050-acre Whitewater Wildlife Management Area.
We’ll be in group campsite GC2, and the event will begin as folks drift in Friday afternoon and evening, with an extended social hour and, weather permitting, a group campfire. If anyone is willing/able to haul in a load of community firewood, the contribution will be greatly appreciated.
Overall, this will be another relaxed, mostly unstructured “get acquainted” weekend, with a Saturday afternoon get-together and general membership meeting (starting at 4:00 p.m.) where we can exchange ideas, congrats, frustrations, etc.
Our meeting will be followed by a group wild game cookout, with BHA supplying the sides, chips/dip, etc. Let MN BHA co-chair Erik Jensen know if you can bring/contribute some wild game. We’ll also pick up plates/utensils, but feel free to bring/supply your own.
Please e-mail or call if you think you will probably come so we know how many to plan for, or if you have any questions. We look forward to seeing you in camp!
