MERC is back again with our 3nd annual ice fishing charity event! Please join us for another highly anticipated day of education, ice fishing, games, and networking.
First up we will engage in a highly conversational education session “Looking Back and Launching Forward”, while enjoying hearty warm lunch in a Minnesotan winter. Come sit fireside with a few of our corporate mobility friends (to be announced) where we will dive into what went well in 2023, what may not have gone as planned, what was accomplished and what 2023 initiatives ultimately went on the backburner. We will then launch into the future regarding the group’s mobility program goals and initiatives are for 2024. It is sure to be an insightful and interactive conversation in our favorite Minnesota rustic-chic Pike’s Place and Paddle Club room!
After the education session, we will be hosting an ice fishing extravaganza to support The Foundation for Workforce Mobility, whose charities of choice this year are Family Promise, Move for Hunger, Eleven +, and the Scholarship Fund. There will be a variety of raffles, including the opportunity to win Minnesota made gift baskets and cold, hard cash! All proceeds will go to support these great organizations.
If you plan to fish, we have you covered! Simply ensure you have a warm jacket, hat (the first 60 registrants will receive a complimentary, highly sought after MERC trapper hat), gloves, and our friends at Set the Hook Guide Services will provide the rest. Participants will need to purchase a one-day fishing license. There will even be prizes for the participant who catches the biggest fish and the most fish by the end of the day (in addition to bragging rights)! Space is limited, so register today to save your seat in one of the luxury ice castles!
Don’t fish but want to enjoy some comradery with your industry peers? Join us on the lake for a beverage, snacks, and no doubt a laugh or two as many of our out-of-town guests experience being on ice for the first (or second or third!) time. It is sure to be a hit yet again - we hope to see you there!
Attire: Warm Casual (Jeans, sweaters, hat, fleece, flannel, mittens, boots….it’s a Minnesota winter!)
