Furs, Fins & Feathers

12:00 pm to 08:00 pm
Paynetown State Recreation Area

Monroe Lake is celebrating National Hunting and Fishing Day with a special event at Paynetown State Recreation Area on Saturday, September 24, “Furs, Fins, and Feathers.”

The event is completely free, and, even better, admission to Paynetown SRA is also free on September 24.

Jill Vance, Monroe Lake’s interpretative naturalist and the event’s coordinator, says that “Furs, Fins, and Feathers” is targeted at people, particularly kids, who have an interest in hunting or fishing sports but aren’t sure where to start – or would like to try something different.

Event partners will present a slate of demonstrations and presentations throughout the afternoon, in addition to showcasing their sport or skill in the expo area. The expo runs from 1 to 4 p.m., and there are eight 20-minute demos scheduled between 12 p.m. and 4 p.m.

“The falconry and hunting dog demos were particularly popular last year. Both of those groups are back this year, and we’re excited to have quite a few new partners join us,” noted Vance.

There’s also a 1-hour seminar, “How to Train a Hunting Dog,” that is scheduled for 4 p.m. The Indiana Raptor Center will close out the event with a live birds of prey presentation at 7 p.m.

The full event schedule is available at http://bit.ly/fursfinsfeathers2016.

Questions should be directed to Vance at [email protected] or 812-837-9967.

Paynetown SRA is located at 4850 S. State Road 446 in Bloomington, Indiana.

The 56th Annual Lake Lemon Regatta hosted by the Bloomington Yacht Club (BYC) takes place at noon on Saturday, September 24th and at 9:30 am Sunday, September 25th, 2016 at the BYC.

A sailing regatta is a series of class races comprised of identical boats all racing around a set course on the lake. The course is set so that all boats must sail to all points of the compass, against the wind and with the wind. Strategy and tactics play a significant part in the outcome of the event.

Four fleets of boats of varying lengths and classes will have separate starts. These sailors will be coming from throughout the Midwest and will compete over two days for the top sailing awards.

The event is free and open to the public. Bring a picnic lunch and come join us for an afternoon of watching these boats compete on nearby Lake Lemon.

About the Bloomington Yacht Club:
