There has been a bit going on in the last week an a half. We welcomed this ball of energy to the resort. Oogie Boogie, Oogie for short arrived and not much sleep was had for a week. Lots of time on the grass convincing him to pee outside. So far so good. The little bugger is doing well. Mack has decided he is not the worst thing in the world as long as he respects Mack’s space

On to other things. Internet in the Northwoods is a pain. The last 2 weeks have been tough to even work on the blog. Internet and phone towers in the Northwoods get over taxed during high times. Between the 4th of July and Hodag in Rhinelander we have had a lot of people in the woods. I met with Wisconsin Governor Evers this week to talk about how rural internet service hurts our business. He was up announcing a huge investment going in for broadband in Oneida and Vilas County. 80 percent of people in our county, including us, do not have broadband. It still will not be perfect but a step in the right direction. Slowly over the years it has gotten better. I was happy the Governor took the time to listen.

Due to a puppy arrival I missed our horseshoe tournament this year. So I have borrowed a few pics from the folks there. Sorry for the delay in posting. The tournament in Roy Tungett’s honor carried on with new and old faces

One of our photographers Linda Tungett Hoadley showing her moves to get the shoe in the pit

Rich Snodgrass aka GOAT of our tournament showing why he has won it many times

We even had an over seas contingent represented by Irish Kate straight from the Green Isle

Many just happy to get their shoes in the pit let alone capture a ringer like Grace above

The awards we all covet!

It was not Rich’s year to win. He became a refreee, and pit raker

This year 2nd place went to Chris Moran and Kim Flower. Chris’s big smile comes from finally getting in the the top 2 teams and getting his name removed from the pony plaque a goal of his for as long as I can remember

First place went to Eric Peterson and Brigid Hixson. Congrats to both!

Another great year of pole dancing

After all the festivities Tom Hixson led us out in the hanging of the plaque ceremony in the office and a moment to remember those who are no longer with us this year who have played but are not forgotten

Buck Cass played many many years and his laugh made us all smile. We were sad to add his name to those we miss

A glass was raised and toasted to Roy Tungett who started everything off

Til we all meet again in 2023
