Minnesota Bound Crappie Contest

On May 3, 2014, almost 1,500 fishermen and women participated in the MN Bound Crappie Contest on Lake Minnetonka. This is the contest’s 46th year and it helped raise money for Fishing For Life, which is a charity that uses fishing and other outdoor programs to serve the community, families and kids.

All of the Kinetico dealers in the state of Minnesota, including Haferman Water Conditioning, joined forces to advertise together (in addition to their own individual advertising) at this fun, family-friendly event.

One of the main events is the Crappie Contest, where people try to catch the largest crappie. The first place winner in the adult division caught a crappie that was 1.61 pounds, and the first place winner in the junior division caught a crappie that was 1.22 pounds! And the grand prize winner, who caught a crappie closest to the surprise weight of 0.97 pounds, managed to net a crappie that was 0.96 pounds! He won a 2014 G3 boat, motor and trailer.

During the MN Bound Crappie Contest, there was a drawing for a Kinetico K5 Reverse Osmosis System. The lucky winner was Amber A! Because she lives in Haferman’s territory, we were the ones who had the privilege of installing the new Kinetico reverse osmosis system at her home!


A reverse osmosis system is a system that removes dissolved inorganic solids from drinking water. This is done by pushing tap water through a semi-permeable membrane. This membrane will only let the water pass through and the membrane will hold onto any impurities or contaminates that are in the water. The end result is clean and pure drinking water. You definitely taste a difference in your tap water after one of these systems is installed!
