Summerfest fun for 2017

Brandon Summerfest is about a month away -- and the Brandon Lions have lots of fun for you to join in on:

We'll be driving our float in the parade and running a burger/hot dog stand at the end of the route.  After that you can swing by Lions Park and play BINGO.  Drop in and play as much as you want -- it's $1/game/card with 50% cash payout. At the end of bingo we'll be dedicating the new flag pole at Lions park courtesy of the Brandon Legion group.  Then if you are hungry again (which you will be ;)) join us for our FISH FRY!  Lots of yummy fish cooked by the Alex Viking Sportsmen -- $11/adults, $5/12&under.

We'll see you at Brandon 2017 Summer Fest Celebration!!

Pond Hockey Tournament Held February 4th at Lions Park

The first ever Brandon Lions Pond Hockey tournament with held at the community ice rink on Saturday, February 4, 2017.
This was the third date that was set, but after the warm weather in December and January -- and the ice needing to be rebuilt three times -- it was finally time to play hockey!
There were 5 teams that registered and games started at 8am.  The teams battled it out, with the first and second teams playing for the trophy with a best of 3 match.
The weather was perfect for both the players and spectators.  Concessions were available.

The Lions would like to thank all the sponsors who helped make this possible and the countless hours put in by both Lions members and volunteers.
Plans are already being made for next year's tournament.  If you have any questions about the Lions or would like to become involved contact Lion Mike Ranweiler.

2nd Place Team:  Tony Bordeaux, Josh A Haugen, Vincent Kremer, Jacob Thorstad
