Support our Troops Draw

We are getting geared up to head out to the All Canada Sport Show in Green Bay, Wisconsin, starting Thursday. Anxious to see so many of our good friends, guests and future guests there as always!

Rainbow Point Lodge is happy to be part of a wonderful promotion with Wildlife Artist Tony Padgett this year in support of the US Troops serving the USA. Here is the total information on the trip Rainbow Point Lodge will be donating to this worthwhile cause.

Wildlife Artist Anthony J. Padgett to Host Contest for Military Personnel with Fishing Trip to Canada During All Canada Show Event

Wildlife Artist Anthony J. Padgett supports U.S. Military with a contest to win a Canadian fishing trip for two during the 2010 All Canada Show tour. All presently serving or honorably discharged Active Military, Guard, Reserve or Retired are eligible to enter.
Anthony is a renowned wildlife artist with recent accomplishments that include the 2008 Ducks Unlimited International Artist of the Year Award and 2009 Louisiana State Waterfowl Stamp Award. Anthony’s love of the outdoors is depicted in many of his paintings. Being an avid fisherman and outdoorsman who enjoys fishing in Canada was the idea behind this contest as an opportunity to say thanks to US Military personnel.
Anthony’s love of the outdoors and wildlife came at an early age when even then the urge turn memories into drawings had begun. A self-taught artist, Anthony’s career as a wildlife artist has spanned almost twenty years. His work has taken him all across the United States and Canada. Whether its researching polar bears in the arctic or watching an eagle soar above, a realistic portrayal of wildlife in their natural environment are trademarks of his style.
The All Canada Show attracts over 300 Canadian fishing and hunting lodges. The angler and hunter can book their adventure directly with the lodge owner during the show. The All Canada Show will make stops in eleven cities starting January 9th in St. Louis, Missouri and continuing through February 21st in Dallas, Texas.
The contest will be held during the All Canada Show tour. Anthony has a booth at the All Canada Show and entry forms can be filled out and turned in at his booth. The winner and their guest will be able to choose a week in either July or August 2010 to fish with Anthony. Rainbow Point Lodge in Perrault Falls, Ontario, Canada is the destination for that week of fishing.
“As Americans we are fortunate to have so many brave men and women in our military keeping us out of harm’s way” says Anthony. “I want to share my love of the outdoors with a soldier and give them an opportunity to relax, have fun, and enjoy a week of fishing. This is my small way of saying thanks.”

Fishing & Hunting Licence Update

Hello Everyone:

Just a quick update on the Ontario Outdoors Card that was started last summer. If you visited last year for fishing or hunting, you were issued a Temporary Outdoors Card at the time you got your fishing or hunting licence. (Was a large pink piece of paper)

Most of you should have received a permanent Ontario Outdoors Card by now. It is the size of driver's licence, and you will need to bring that back up with you next summer to speed up your next fishing or hunting licence, and save you paying the Card fee again ($9.00).

If you got one of the temporary licences last year and didn't receive your Outdoors Card, you can follow up with the Ministry of Natural Resources at the Card Centre - 1-800-387-7011. Make sure you follow up with them at least 6 weeks before your next visit.

Worst case scenerio - you don't get your card before your trip - not that bad. You'll just need to purchase another one.

Another new thing for licences this coming season is a One Day Fishing Licence for non-residents. This licence provides for conservation limits, and is really only beneficial cost-wise if you are fishing for just 1 day total. Thought I'd pass that info on for you though, in case it may apply to any of you.

Keep warm everyone and THINK SPRING ..... THINK FISHING...... THINK GREAT TIMES AT RAINBOW POINT LODGE! Book your spring fishing trip now!
