    Three Lakes WI Shoot-Out Has Ended

    I am sad to report that Three Lakes is no longer hosting the Shoot-out and Fly-in. I believe it started out as an informal gathering of Hydrostream owners and somehow the Three Lakes Fire Dept. took it over. Wasn't it originally held at Pine Isle on Medicine Lake (part of the chain).

    It would be nice if the informal gathering could just re-get-together for a weekend of cruising the Chain and maybe some radar runs and beer? (each summer in June sometime)

    I'm not sure if this is technically the first one, but I think it was ... Nick Kaye had several of us over to do some boating. No drag racing or radar runs.

    The group was Mike Balz, Steve Anderson, T-Man, Jon & Dawn Graff, Randy Pierson, Dave Galligan, J. Ferrell, Nick Kaye of course, Pat Brown, myself, and several others that I can't remember. Great times - we even hit "Weasel's" and I have the polaroid to prove it

    The next year, it changed with the radar runs.

    Bummer.

    I would be in for some kind of weekend shenanigans. It is a great place to get on the water.
