What is a Boundary Waters Night?

By on December 28, 2016

In the coming weeks, you will see our invitation asking you to join us for a Boundary Waters Night in your area.  You say to yourself, “What is a Boundary Waters Night anyway?”  Cause, heck you don’t want to go and get some kind of sales pitch.  Well here is the scoop:

Boundary Waters Nights were invented 24 years ago as a way to accomplish several things.  First, we want to create an excuse for Boundary Waters enthusiasts to get out of the house on a winter’s night and mingle with others in your area that have a similar love and passion for the outdoors.   While, we will admit to having a lot of fun in the process, we also want to provide some learning opportunity for our guests.

So as a part of every Boundary Waters Night we have two presentations.  First, is a great slide show that serves as an introduction to the Boundary Waters.  If you have never been there, this is for you.  Even if you have been there a hundred times, it is fun to see the slides of the area and get revved up for the next season.   The second part is a 20 to 30-minute seminar that covers some aspect of a Boundary Waters trip.  Last year we talked about the joy of travelling lighter.  Some years we talk about fishing, and maybe wildlife photography.  These are designed to be useful for everyone; experienced and neophyte alike.

Then there are the door prizes.  Your chance to win a $100.00 Bending Branches paddle is worth attending just in and of its self.  Finally, refreshments are served and a chance to mingle with others.  All in all, it’s a great night.  Please join us if you can.  It is a great chance to figure out how to get a trip off the ground if it’s your first time, and a great time to recharge your batteries if you are an old timer.
