'Hunting Widows' comedy show Nov. 7 in Ottertail

"Is it Deer or Dear...A Hunting Widows Weekend Comedy Show" is planned at Thumper Pond in Ottertail on Saturday, Nov. 7.

The comedy showcase, which is a part of the second annual hunting widows weekend, will feature Jodie Maruska, Susie Saccoman, and Rox Tarrant. In addition to being one of the comedians, Tarrant, who hails from Minneapolis, is the show's producer. The comedy showcase begins at 8 p.m.

Tickets are $15 if purchased before Nov. 5. Those who pre-purchase tickets or reserve their hotel rooms before Nov. 5 are invited to a wine reception from 6:30 until 7:30 p.m.

Just the second year into the comedy showcase event, the unique performance is already gaining lots of support.

"We certainly hope to do it every year," says Nicole Lalum, Thumper Pond Sales Manager. "We had a lot of ladies come from the region last year."

She estimates that last year's show brought in about 170 women from throughout the state. Many of the women enjoy the opportunity to attend a comedy show while their husbands are out hunting.

Prior to the show, a business showcase is planned in the Thumper Pond Clubhouse from 1 to 6 p.m. Admission is free and the showcase is open to the public. Booths will feature businesses such as Young Living Essential Oils, Avon, Tupperware, Silpada Jewelry, Mary Kay, PartyLite and more.

Thumper Pond is located at 300 Thumper Lodge Road, in Ottertail. Call 218-367-2000 for reservations or visit www.thumperpo for more information.

Hotel specials are available. One Hunting Widow "Mystery Winner" will be granted a free stay.
