Good News! The Adrian Peterson/Starkey Foundation Ice Fishing Contest and fundraiser has scheduled a NEW date for the 2nd Annual Event on Lake Waconia! Mark your calendars for Sunday, February 19th!
"With the success of last year's event, and the demand and excitement we received for this year, we regret postponement of the event" said Brady Forseth. "However, we look forward to hosting a successful event next month to raise much-needed awareness and funds for the Starkey Hearing Foundation and All Day Foundation".
Sunday, Feb 19th will replace the original January event date due to warm weather temps, near the original date. Organizers recognized possible ice limitations, and felt it best to reschedule to present a full, safe day of fun in February!
