Outdoor recreation and tourism are a big part of Manistee’s economy. So, it’s no wonder why the county was represented at the 37th Annual Outdoorama in suburban Detroit this past weekend. Bob Guenthardt, of Renegade Charters, and Suzanne Riley, owner of Century 21 Boardwalk were the representatives passing out information and talking up the Manistee area this year. Guenthardt was signing up anglers for the Tight Lines for our Troops event on May 24 and 25 in Manistee. The charity fishing event for veterans is being organized by a group of charter boat captains in Manistee County, many of whom are veterans themselves. The Manistee booth had information on the event, and also on all the recreational opportunities available in the area. “We’re down here promoting the county,” Riley said. “We’re trying to get people up there.” There were maps, flyers and brochures on everything from fishing to golfing in Manistee County. According to Riley, many people in the heavy crowds that thronged the Rock Financial Showplace in Novi, where the Outdoorama was held, were interested in the information the booth offered. Plenty of inter-

Anglers got a chance to peek at the equipment for the upcoming spring and summer fishing season. ested people stopped by Thursday and Friday, Riley and Guenthardt said. By Saturday, they’d distributed a lot of information. “We’ve gone through three boxes of pamphlets so far,” Riley said. The U.S. Forest Service also had a booth at the show offering information about the Huron-Manistee National Forest. The show was a chance for outdoor enthusiasts all over the state to shake off the winter blues and get geared up for the upcoming warm weather. It brought together outdoor shops, outfitters and organizations from across the state to showcase their goods and services under one roof and gave fishermen, hunters and other outdoor lovers the chance to gawk at new boats, fishing rods and guns. More than 30 nonprofit clubs and organizations, many of which are affiliates of the Michigan United Conservations Clubs (MUCC), were on hand at the show, which also featured former Detroit Tigers pictcher Milt Wilcox and his “Ultimate Air Dogs” show of leaping Labrador retrievers and other athletic canines. Other featured events included a trout pond and a demonstration by members of the Willow Winds Traditional Wilderness Skills, who tanned deer hides the oldfashioned way.

chamber undertakes on behalf of our members. Student interns are much more than an extra

pair of hands at a busy office, plant or store. When a business or organization agrees to host an intern, it’s really a commitment to teach that student about the business — to translate the theory into practice. While she’s at the chamber, Delaney will try her hand at creating newsletters, flyers and newspaper columns.

208 Parkdale Ave. • Manistee • 1-800-968-4647

She’ll sit in on planning meetings for key chamber events like Business After Hours, the Business Expo and the Summer Blast Off Steak Fry in June. Why would a busy organization like the chamber — or your business — use scant free time to work with students? That’s easy, isn’t it? We share our workday with students like Delaney because these young people will soon be our employees, our colleagues, our co-workers and maybe even our employers and we want them to be ready! Our young people truly are the future of Manistee County and internships are a great way for the business community to help prepare students to lead our community. What can our students learn from you this week?

Other activities are planned for families of the tournament participants including canoeing, a classic car show, family fun walks along the boardwalk, historical tours of Manistee, arts and crafts for kids, hikes and crafts at the Lake Bluff Bird Sanctuary, and many other activities. “The generosity of these charter boat captains, many of them veterans themselves, and the support of many veterans organizations within the county, promises to provide the foundation for a very exciting inaugural event,” said Bob Guenthardt, event founder and captain of Renegade Charters based in Manistee. The Tight Lines for Troops participants will enjoy a pre-tournament dinner meeting at Manistee VFW Hall, served by the United Veterans Council of Manistee County. The tournament day begins with a shotgun start at the pier heads.

The awards banquet will be provided later that evening at Little River Casino Resort beginning at 5 p.m. “Donations will first cover the expenses of the tournament participants based on need, including transportation and lodging,
