Boondoggle: Noun. Work or activity that is wasteful or pointless but gives the appearance of having value.
Maybe it was pointless, but dang was it fun! The winter 2016 Boondoggle was Jan. 23-24 on the Whitefish Chain at the Rollie Johnson Islands Recreational Area.
We had more than 20 people come out for the day Saturday, and four tents comprised our little tent city out on the island. Some drove out, some cross-country skied out, some walked and some kited to get to the island. We ate, we drank, we played kickball. There might have been some kiting in there too.
We hope to make these Boondoggles a regular thing, so keep an eye out for future gatherings! Huge thanks to Melissa Grover and Bryce Johnson for the great pics!
