TLA Events

All our social events are meant to promote camaraderie amongst lake property owners and their families in hopes that it will advocate donations for the good of our lake.  We urge you to participate in one or all events as they really are a great time. Mark your calendars early, you don’t want to miss these opportunities. Questions or suggestions for any of the events contact Event Committee Chair Person Margo Oppenheim at mmoppy@deerrunstone.com or 715-614-3722.

Sip & Bid Silent Auction

We are fortunate to once again have one of our lake neighbors offer to open their home for our annual Sip & Bid fundraising event. This year’s event will be held on Saturday, July 20 from 4-7 p.m. at John & Kim Griffin’s home at 8197 Blue Jay Road, Lake Tomahawk. What a fun evening this is! Come join us, meet new lake property owners and visit with old friends. There will be food and refreshments along with our famous silent auction. Cost of the event will once again be $50.00. This amount just covers the cost of food and refreshments and does not add anything to our fundraising efforts. Please help us raise money for our organization by participating in the silent auction. RSVP to Margo by July 10, 2020 mmoppy@deerrunstone.com or text 715-614-3722.


Family Fun Feed

The Family Fun Feed, our version of a neighborhood potluck, does not have a home for the 2020 season at this time.  We will continue our search for a host for this occasion.  If you are interested or want more info on what is involved in hosting please contact Margo at 715-614-3722 or mmoppy@deerrunstone.com.  It is really quite simple and you get a lot of help and direction from the Events Committee.  This will be held on  Saturday, August 8th this year.  MinocStock is August 1st!!  TLA and the Host Family will be providing the main meat dish, wine, beer, water, soda and paper products. We ask that each family brings a dish to pass, anything else you might want to drink and a chair to sit on. Come join in the family fun. 


Hermit Island Swim & Paddle

Swim, walk or paddle your way around Hermit Island (Olmstead Island) on July 4, 2020.  All ages are welcome!  There will be two racecourses set up – one for swimmers and one for paddlers around the island. As well as a short children’s course where they can either run in the water or swim. There will be three traveling trophies given out. Our traveling trophies get to visit your home on Tomahawk Lake for one year and your name will be added to the TLA HISP plaque. Two of the trophies will go to the first female and the first male in the Swim Elite Wave. Swimmers wanting to qualify for awards may wear a wetsuit but are not allowed to use other devices to aid in speed such as fins. Swimmers in the friendly non-competitive wave can use any and all devices available that they bring with them. The third traveling trophy will go to the first person or team in from the Paddle Wave. Medals will be given to each child age 10 and under that participate in the Hermit Wave.

Registration will be from 9:00 – 9:45 a.m. for all swimmers and paddlers. Even though there is no entrance fee for this event, you must register to participate as a liability waiver must be signed.  You MUST be registered by 9:45 a.m. to participate, so please get there early to sign the waiver.  Waivers can be downloaded off the tomahawklake.org website ahead of time and brought with you already signed to hand in at registration. This is suggested to save time at registration!

Donations are accepted for the buoy sponsorships, starting at $270/buoy or $100/paddle sponsors. Commemorative t-shirts, starting at $15/shirt are available ONLY at this event. TLA baseball hats, $15/adult, $12/child will also be for sale. Both items are available in youth and adult sizes. We have a few TLA fleeces left that sell for $35/fleece.  Bring a little bit of cash or a check written out to TLA to get your whole family matching Hermit outfits! All donations will be used to battle Aquatic Invasive Species and to ensure that the “Jewel of the North” stays beautiful and pristine for generations to come. 
For questions ahead of time, please contact Meg Daly at meg@coachmegdaly.com or 414-331-6891. Come ready to compete, laugh and share in the good fun! What better way to start off your 4th of July activities?!

The Hermit hopes to see you there!
