If you enjoy taking your boat out on some of our area lakes including Horseshoe, Turtle, Coal and Thunder, you can thank the Browerville Sportsman’s Club for the docks at those lakes.
You can also thank them for the fishing and swimming dock at Horseshoe Lake.
The Browerville Sportsman’s Club officially was formed on June 28, 1979.
According to current Club President Lee Martinek, the club became inactive for a few years, “Then, about 19 years ago in 1999, Jerry Kotula, Gene Tschida and Bruce Bentz revitalized it and brought it back to life.”
He has been the president for the last couple of years. His good friend, hunting and fishing partner Tschida was president for ten years prior to that.
When they revived the club, they decided to hold an annual banquet that would also serve as a fundraiser for not only the activities to keep their club going, but also to provide recreational opportunities in the area.
As an added bonus to the communities in the area, they also donate to the local ambulances, fire departments, post proms for Browerville School and Long Prairie-Grey Eagle School, a conservation camp trip for Christ the King students and the Browerville Trap Shooting team. . . .
