Hello Clam Lake!
This week the word of the day is: ELK. I have heard reports of people seeing them alongside the roads, in the roads, bedded down near the roads. You get the picture! Time to be careful!They are making their way out to see if tasty morsels can be found on the melted banks. I had eight at my house last week feasting on plants that were surfacing. They then wandered out to the frozen lake and walked in unison till they reached the shore. I had a bit of a giggle watching them since they looked like an old fashioned wind-up toy moving slowly towards the bank.
REMINDER (from President Rick Guthman): The Elk Country ATV Club will be holding their monthly meeting at the Elkhorn, Saturday April 6th at one p.m. Anyone interested in joining should attend.
Get Well wishes go out to Jack Cook. He is home recuperating after a stint in the hospital following a Curling accident. I’m sure he would appreciate hearing from his Clam Lake friends. Here is his address: Jack Cook, N7640 State Road 44, Pardeeville, WI 53954 We hope he feels better soon.
Twice this week I was asked, “Where was Project ELF?” The first person thought possibly one could still see remnants of the communication system which, of course, you cannot. Fifty years ago Project ELF (also known as Project Sanguine and Seafarer) was being built. With this in mind it is fitting, that in the fall, a book will be released featuring a chapter on our controversial project. I will keep you updated…..
