The Bemidji brewery's tavern is not without local music, and most weekends there is live music in several locations. Golfers can play in a beautiful north of the woods and the beautiful Lake Bimini State Park is 15 minutes from the city center. Right there in our front garden the water glistens, which is just as beautiful as at sunset on a pontoon ride. Less than an hour away is Bembina National Park, home to the Minnesota State Fair and Minnesota's largest golf course, the University of Minnesota.
The Bemidji Curling Club will host its 13th annual Winter Classic from February 21-25, and attention will be on the 14th event, which will return to the South for a few weeks before returning to our twin cities in 2017 when the event is held in Stillwater. From the Blue Ox Marathon in October to the Minnesota State Fair and the annual Bembina National Park Marathon, to a 5,000-mile trail run in the fall.
The Duluth-based US men's team will be skipped by John Shuster, and Bemidji-born Joe Polo will serve as a replacement. The Madison, Wis.-based United States Women's teams also feature a pair of Minnesota natives: Nina Roth, who will start for the team from Madison, Wisconsin, and Emily Petes, a native of St. Paul, Minnesota. The team, which includes two Minnesota residents and one from the Minnesota State Fair, will skip a team that includes three Minnesota native and four-time Olympic gold medalist Jennifer Jones, the 2016 Olympic champion and the 2014 Winter Olympics bronze medalist.
Other members of the Fenson family will compete in curling at the Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia this weekend. The Bemidji High School boys scored a goal in a 2-1 victory over the University of Minnesota - Duluth men's hockey team on Thursday night. The celebrations for the sport began unofficially on Thursday and continued on Friday night with the first men's college hockey game to be played this week and into the weekend, a 3-2 victory by Minnesota State University's St. Paul women's team.
After a perfect start, Bemidji's own Dillon Eichstadt scored the winning goal in the final seconds to defeat the home-state Beavers over the Michigan Tech Huskies. The pair gave fans a glimpse of what the national championship game in March could look like when they rang the opening bell for hockey day. In the end, the match between the two teams was decided in extra time and in all-round shooting. BEMIDDLE State and Minnesota State fought off another hard-fought and tight game in which the Mavericks prevailed.
The bronze medalist is no stranger to the broadcast booth, having also worked as a commentator for the USA men's and women's national basketball teams. Fenson enjoyed the opportunity to engage in the sport at the highest level, although broadcasting the Olympics is not the same as participating in them.
