Welcome Wannigan may be postponed, depending on ice

The Nisswa Chamber of Commerce is considering postponing its annual Welcome Wannigan, where volunteers deliver doughnuts and coffee to anglers on Gull Lake on the walleye and northern pike fishing opener, to Saturday, May 18.

Those involved fear the ice won’t be fully out on Gull Lake by this weekend’s fishing opener, Saturday, May 11.

A final decision was to be made Wednesday, May 8. For the latest announcement, visit
