Event at Gill’s Landing on Wolf River
The Tri-County Powerboat Alliance will host its 18th annual Wolf River brat fry fundraiser from noon to 4 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 1, at Gill’s Landing in Weyaweuga.
People may arrive by water or land for music, food and raffles on the shore of the Wolf River.
The “free” brat fry will feature Hillshire Sara Lee brats.
Gill’s Landing is located five miles upstream from Fremont or 3 1/2 miles east of Weyauwega on County Trunk F.
The alliance will also have a Designated Navigator/Driver Program with free non-alcoholic beer or soda.
There will also be a free boat shuttle service for boats that anchor out in the river.
The Tri-County Powerboat Alliance is a nonprofit organization dedicated to ensuring the waterways from New London to Lake Winnebago remain available for fair and equitable use by all recreational users.
Emphasizing courtesy and safe fun for all, the TCPA works to build consensus with all the various users and philosophies of this water system.
With these fundraising efforts, the TCPA is able to hire barges to remove partially or fully submerged large trees, logs and deadheads from the main river channel and also remove steel drums, various buckets, metal and garbage hazards from the Wolf River and its shores, all which are a danger to boaters.
The 100-plus member alliance regularly conducts safe boater education classes, provides signs and other navigational aids, sponsors informational meetings, provides funds for dredging, shoreline riprap projects, building fish and wildlife protection zones and works with state and local government officials to protect the waterway and its natural resources.
The funds raised at the Aug. 1 event will help with all those efforts.
