Sep 26 - Sep 28   Hackensack Chainsaw Event

The sound of chainsaws will reverberate throughout Hackensack, Minn., September 26-28 as the 10th annual Hackensack Chainsaw Event gets under way, featuring 12 carvers.

To mark the 10th anniversary of the event, three master carvers who participated in the first year’s of this event are returning to Hackensack. The master carvers are Bob King of Reedsport, Ore., Dayton Scoggins of Sandersville, Miss., and Jeff Mohr of Oxford, Wis.

King is an international champion sculptor and has represented the United States in chainsaw carving competitions around the world. In 2010 he was presented with a star on the Chainsaw Carvers’ Walk of Fame in Mulda, Germany, for winning more competitions than anyone in the world. He is part of the three-man Echo-USA Chainsaw Carving Team. King is known for his speed, attention to details and his record of winning first-place medals in carving competitions.

Scoggins has been carving for 13 years and was the winner in the first Chainsaw Event in Hackensack 10 years ago. After hurricanes damaged much of the Mississippi coast, Scoggins was hired to carve sculptures on the destroyed trees along the coastal highway. He has won various chainsaw competitions both in the United States and other countries.

Mohr has been carving full time for 24 years. He started carving after he saw someone carving while working for a tree service in Illinois. He says the inspiration for carving is the need to express himself.

Local carvers will also be represented including Chris Kuehn of Hackensack, owner of Detour North. Kuehn holds a carving contest called “Carve For Kids” every Labor Day with proceeds going to programs for children. Kuehn is an artist in other media as well, so his finishing touches add an extra dimension to his work. Also carving at the event is Molly Wiste, who is an art teacher in the Pequot Lakes School District.

Other familiar carvers include Joe Semler of Isanti, Minn.; Chad Danczyk of Mosinee, Wis.; Bronson Fisher of Grantsburg, Wis.; Jon Mykkanen and Marie Serafin of Republic, Mich.; Curtis Ingvoldstad of Nerstrand, Minn.; and Travis Kimball of Waterloo, Iowa.

There will be two quick carves – one Friday at 12:30 p.m. and the other Saturday at 1 p.m. During the quick carve, the carver has one and a half hours to complete a carving and finish it for auction. All of the carvings done during the three-day event will be put up for auction starting at noon Sunday.

In addition to the chainsaw carving, the event also features the All-American Lumberjack Show, with a special show Friday for area school children. There also will be food and craft vendors, and a variety of family games.

The action begins at 9 a.m. and ends at 5 p.m. on Friday and Saturday and opens at 11 a.m. on Sunday as preparation for the auction begins. Admission is $5, good for all three days; kids under age 12 are free. Free parking is available around Hackensack, and shuttle service is available to the event area.

The Hackensack Chainsaw Event is sponsored by the Hackensack Chamber of Commerce, the Hackensack Lions, the Hackensack American Legion Post 202 family, and the city of Hackensack. Proceeds go back into the event, with the remainder split between the four sponsors, who donated to the charities of their choice.

Nov 07   Theatre Latte Da: Steerage Song - Chalberg Theatre/CLC
Performed by Theater Latte Da of Minneapolis. Created by Artistic Director Peter Rothstein along with musician and writer Dan Chouinard, this musical docudrama tells a story of the journey immigrants took from Europe to America through Ellis Island. Rothstein and Chouinard spent over three years gathering immigrant songs from 30 different European countries then narrowed their selection to 40 songs. The production includes lyrics in 15 different languages, but the driving force is the universal language of music. Providing a context for the music are quotes taken from immigrant guidebooks, Ellis Island documents, immigration legislation, and articles about life in New York’s Lower East Side tenement district. www.theatrelatteda.com

Jan 09   Davina & The Vagabonds - Chalberg Theatre
Davina Sowers and the Vagabonds have created a stir on the national blues scene with their high-energy live shows, sharp-dressed professionalism, and Sowers’ commanding stage presence. With influences ranging from Fats Domino and the Preservation Hall Jazz Band to Aretha Franklin and Tom Waits, the band is converting audiences one show at a time, from Vancouver to Miami and across Europe. So much more than just a blues act, DATV’s shows are filled with New Orleans charm, Memphis soul swagger, dark theatrical moments that evoke Kurt Weill, and tender gospel passages. Davina’s voice and stage presence defy category in a different way. Davina has been compared to Etta James, Amy Winehouse, Janis Joplin, Billie Holiday and Betty Boop, but comparisons don’t suffice: Sowers is a true original. www.davinaandthevagabonds.com

Jan 24   2015 Brainerd Jaycees $150,000 Ice Fishing Extravaganza

Mark your calendars for the world’s greatest ice fishing contest – the Brainerd Jaycees $150,000 Ice Fishing Extravaganza on Gull Lake near Brainerd. Join the more than 10,000 anglers as they vie for fabulous prizes, including a truck, all-terrain vehicles, ice fishing equipment and so much more!

Since 1990, this signature event of the Brainerd Jaycees has raised more than $1 million for Brainerd Lakes Area charities, especially Confidence Learning Center, and rallied thousands of volunteers.

Contestants can expect the same great event as in years past with the opportunity to win large prizes at various places on the leader board – 1st place wins a GMC or Ford pick-up truck, 100th place goes home with an Ice Castle fish house, and Arctic Cat 4-wheelers are spread throughout the list.  The Lindy Big Fish Bounty is back again this year, where the 24th place winner can earn $3,000 in addition to the $2,400 on the prize list if they catch the winning fish on the special edition Emerald Shiner colored Lindy Rattlin’ Flyer Spoon available exclusively at Mills Fleet Farm stores.  Also returning this year after a one year hiatus is the Catch of the Day Extravaganza Give Away, and additional contest within the Extravaganza, giving participants the chance to win a prize package valued at $9,000 for an additional $5.  Stamps for this contest can be purchases online and at Mills Fleet Farm in Baxter.

The Fabulous Armadillos came out of their shell in 2006 and have since established a large and loyal following in Central Minnesota with their spot on recreations of songs from many genres of music from Country to Motown to Heavy Metal to 70's Soft Rock and do them just like you remember.

Apr 30 - May 02   Servant of Two Masters - Chalberg Theatre
Hilarity abounds in this madcap Italian comedy of lovers, lawyers, servants, and twenty-seven plates of meatballs. Betrothed couple Silvio and Clarice are devastated when a previous fiancé reappears, back-from-the-dead. In this wild farce things, and people, are not what they seem – disguises, traps, and tricks produce a whirlwind of mass confusion. At the center of this mirth is Truffaldino, the scheming – and perpetually hungry – servant who concocts a zany scheme to double his wages (and his meals) by serving two masters at once. This commedia dell’arte masterpiece promises laugh-out-loud mayhem that shouldn’t be missed!
