LPBA Summer 2023 Convention
Maddens on Gull Lake
Brainerd, MN


Our LPBA Summer Convention at Maddens Resort in Gull Lake, Minnesota is right around the corner, and things are looking great. Thanks to Gina Constant, our CLE agenda is set and attached for your review. Kris is working on co-pilot events which I know they will enjoy. We are also planning additional, optional events:

Seaplane Instruction/Flying – The plan is to have an aircraft and instructor available Thursday, Friday, and Saturday afternoon to conduct seaplane instruction for those interested. At this point it looks like a three-hour flight from approximately 1-4pm with three students/passengers, so each one will be able to have about an hour of seaplane instruction. Please let me know ASAP if this is something in which you would be interested. Although space is limited, I will try and accommodate everyone if we are able to make the logistics work. But I need to know who is interested ASAP so I can make arrangements. If you previously let us know of your interest, you are already on the list.

Madden’s offers a wide range of activities including tennis courts, croquet lawns, lawn bowling, pickleball courts, sand volleyball, horseshoes, badminton, and shuffleboard. Other available activities include an exercise facility, trapshooting, and axe throwing, to name a few.

For the water-lovers of the group, Madden’s also offers four swimming pools (two outdoor, two indoor) with whirlpools and saunas, a children’s wading pool, an outdoor hot tub overlooking Gull Lake, and an inflatable waterpark with 5 large inflatables. The resort also has a fully equipped marina offering all types of watercraft. So, an afternoon on the lake with great company and beverages is certainly an opti

on! The East Gull Lake Airport (9Y2) is a little over a half mile away from the resort with a 2600’ X 180’ well maintained grass runway. Tie down parking is available and if you make prior arrangements the resort will pick you

up. The Brainerd Lakes Regional Airport (KBRD) is approximately 12 miles away has two paved runways, one 6,500’ and the other 7100’ as well as a full service FBO. I am working on fuel and/or tie-down discounts for those who fly in to BRD.

Finally, we welcome sponsorships for this meeting. If you would like to join my firm and others in sponsoring the meeting and promoting your business, or if you know of anyone who you think might be interested in or willing to take advantage of this great opportunity, please contact Karen or me now.
