January 5, 2012

PLYMOUTH — It was difficult to find a dry eye in the packed gymnasium of the Plymouth National Guard Armory Wednesday afternoon, as local soldiers from Plymouth and New Albany prepared for their departure to Afghanistan.
The men and women stood with their loved ones, unified by a common goal but not quite willing to leave their families’ sides just yet.

That's because Culver and Lake Maxinkuckee will play host to a national-scale ice fishing tournament the weekend of Jan. 27 through 29, expected to bring more than 100 teams, and plenty of winter fun for those not interested in ice fishing as well, including a kids' snowman building contest and ice skating camp.
