February 10th from 12 - 3 on Lake Le Homme Dieu is the date and time for the 2007 Ice Fishing Challenge. You can register at www.icefishingchallenge.org or by visiting Christopherson's Bait in Alexandria. And, don't forget your radios. All on ice information will be broadcast on FM radio this year so be sure to bring your radios to keep up to date at the Ice Fishing Challenge.
Last year, the RE/MAX Balloon lifted off just north of the event and weather permitting, it will again this year. The Alexandria Rotary Club is a supporter of this event and helps by selling raffle tickets prior to the even and on the ice during the event. I am a member of Rotary and was out selling tickets and then hopped into the RE/MAX Balloon and took a couple photos (click to enlarge).
