May 3 - McCabe Ikes Annual Banquet

Tickets are $30 for adults and $10 for kids who attend, and include the dinner, a short program, and a chance to win the grand prize drawing.

We have a terrific grand prize this year! The winner will get a 4-day, fully outfitted trip with guide for two people, to the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness, provided by Piragis Northwoods Company. The winner can choose to go on a winter dog-sled trip or a summer canoe trip. Adults do not need to be present to win the grand prize. Those who attend will also have the opportunity to enjoy a great meal, socialize with fellow outdoors folk, and partake in a number of other raffle and silent auction items at the event.

The Buffalo House is located at 2590 Guss Road, just off I-35 at the Hwy 61 intersection, a little south of Duluth. Look for the big buffalo statue. The banquet is in the Buffalo Junction Banquet building.

Purchase tickets from any Ike, or call Darrell Spencer 218-393-1837.

PolyMet Mine

Here is a link to an excellent article on MNPost by former Governor Arne Carlson and Janet Entzel that clearly explains the hypocrisy of the idea that we can have PolyMet, but not the Twin Metals mine. The Ikes are on record clearly opposing both mine plans. Check out the section on "what would Willard Munger do" that outlines a common sense plan for how the state should be proceeding on this issue.
