Wisconsin newspaper notes the 20th anniversary of the ‘Great Northern Jerk-Off’

I’ve vacationed with family in Eagle River, Wisconsin – where the lakes and the minds are clean. (They also love their homemade jerky in Vilas County.) Vilas County News-Review editor Gary Ridderbusch tells me “I’ve never heard one comment” about the name. “People know it’s a fundraiser.” (He later admitted in our phone conversation that locals might “snicker” when they first hear about the event, but they don’t make a big deal out of it.)

People have asked about the T-shirts, which Club 45 was selling them for $10 $20 (they went up). Jen at the bar tells me that readers who want to order the shirt can email her at club45conover@yahoo.com. (FYI: The back of the shirt says, “If You Jerk It, They Will Come.”)
