2016 “Year in Review?”

I’ve posted a ‘year in review’.. or maybe an album of favorite photos.. though.. of the thousands of photos posted it’s hard to just really do a REAL set of favorites.. so I ended up posting 48 photos from the year on the Facebook page

I’m adding all 48 photos HERE to view also.  From Hockey Day MN at Bayfront Park, to all of the State tournaments, including boys and girls basketball, and the recent football state, and numerous section playoffs, to boxing at Black Bear Casino, and many weeks of covering Proctor Speedway this past year, to even a few youth hockey games.  The photos are in no order, and I could have posted at least as many MORE photos as the 48 posted here!

2017 starts up almost immediately, with HS girls basketball in Carlton on Monday night!
