Father/Son Fishing Trip begins

Get outdoors… and turn off your iPod, smartphone, laptop, iPad, and “disconnect” for a couple of days in the woods! Take this opportunity to “Get Away From It All” and to focus on your relationship with your son, grandson, or friend! Enjoy six days of canoeing, fishing, camping, and fun with your son (or grandson or nephew or friend) as a gathering of First Church men and boys head for the UP and the beautiful Sylvania Wilderness Area near the Wisconsin border. Over the last eighteen years, fathers/sons/grandfathers/friends/uncles/nephews have all enjoyed this great trip together. We will leave early on Saturday, June 27 and return on the evening of Thursday, July 2, in time for family activities over the 4th of July. We will be traveling on the church bus. Cost for everything, except 4 travel meals, will be only $200 per person! That great price is for everything! And consider some wonderful meals… grilled steaks, barbequed chicken, brats, Zick Sticks, bacon, and sausage and much more… thanks to Gary Zick! This year we are reserving 3 rustic camping sites on an “inner” lake for 2 nights. We will have a base camp at Katherine Lake like usual, and over three days and two nights, for those who want more “adventure”… we will travel by canoe from Clark into Loon Lake for two nights. That will allow us to fish Loon or other adjoining lakes, for even more over-night…FUN!!! Sign-up by putting half of the total ($100/person) in the “Registrations” mailbox at First Church or mail it to the church office (Attn: Father/Son Camping trip) no later than Sunday, May 3. Make checks payable to “First Church of God” Registrations are limited to the first 24 persons who sign-up. Final payment can be made any time before June 7, to make the full $200 per person. You do not have to have a son/nephew – consider adopting one for the trip or invite another man to join you. However, boys must be at least 10 years of age, be able to handle a canoe and be accompanied with a responsible parent or man. Reservations are limited, so sign-up early! Sign up
