P.O.W.E.R. Skills Camp teaches hockey players new skills Submitted: 11/20/2016

Play Video

EAGLE RIVER - For the kids that didn't participate in the gun deer hunt this weekend, they still got the chance to learn new skills in Eagle River.
 
The Eagle River Ice Arena hosted a P.O.W.E.R. Skating Hockey Weekend.

The "power" acronym stands for Performance Optimized With Edges and Reactions.

Marcie Kierpiec was the instructor and she has 31 years of coaching experience and she is also a level 4 coach with USA Hockey.

"When I come in on these weekends, it's a whole other element. They're learning things they don't usually learn during hockey practice. They're like little sponges, they're really eager to learn," said Kierpiec.

There were multiple different age groups over the weekend and they all learned new skills to take back to their hockey teams.

"Stepping over the stick when you transition, and then sideways and then out transitions, and it's a lot of fun," said 11-year-old Mike Maillette.

Some of the moves Kierpiec was teaching weren't necessarily designed for hockey, but they will still help the kids with control and balance.

Northwoods family celebrates the 75th anniversary of their deer camp Submitted: 11/20/2016

Play Video

LAND O' LAKES - With the first weekend of the gun deer hunt coming to an end, a Northwoods family was able to celebrate a big milestone in their deer camp's history.

"A lot of the deer camps over the years have disappeared, the old camps. So 75 years is quite a milestone,"said Tim Hirvela, who is part of the Kahlenberg family.

The 360 acre property in Land O' Lakes was bought in 1939 by Kurt Kahlenberg's grandfather.

"From that point, we've maintained the hunting camp originally from 1941 on," said Kahlenberg.

Those 75 years haven't always been easy.

"Because of the expense of the property and taxes, and ownership of property, it's hard to maintain a deer camp for a long long time," said Hirvela.

That has given the group of guys a long time to create many memories.

"The stories, every time a deer is taken, it's a different synopsis, it's not always easy," said Hirvela.

The stories and memories stay between the group of guys.

"It's our weekend, it's our week," said Kahlenberg.

The week has seen a lot of changes since they first started. Those changes make a big difference when the temperatures are low.

"We're fortunate enough to have a heater, years ago you sat on a stump and that was it," said Hirvela.

Even in the bitter cold mornings, those 360 acres mean a lot to the group.

"It's just a family tradition that my grandparents started and all us kids grew up and grew into it came to enjoy it, to love it, and keep it going forward," said Kahlenberg.

Going forward meant bringing even more people into the family.

"Even though the members that are in our camp and aren't immediate family, the camaraderie makes us all family," said Hirvela.
