The First Day at the Lodge

The day dawned clear bright and beautiful with a steady breeze to help offset the heat. We knew it was a good idea to go exploring early before the temperatures soared into the 90s.

The 2013 MNRC Judges enjoy a little "down time" at the Sporting Clays.

We wanted to inform people that the nearest gas station is approximately twenty miles from the lodge. We drove to get fuel this morning so we would be set for the start of the event. On our return, we were pleasantly surprised with cold sandwiches and salads in the lobby of the Lodge and fresh grilled burgers by the the main tent.

Some of the friendly, helpful staff of the Flint Oak Lodge.

We would like to take a quick opportunity to note that we have not passed an employee of Flint Oak whether on foot or in our cars where they never failed to smile, wave or acknowledge their gratitude. We appreciate them, too!
