Waconia was chosen to host the 2012 Governor's Fishing Opener over Park Rapids but local representatives have been encouraged to keep applying.


Katie Magozzi, Park Rapids Area Chamber of Commerce Executive Director, who attended this year's event in Grand Rapids, said Waconia had applied four times before being chosen.

"We'll make sure we refresh our application and get it back on the governor's desk this fall," she said.
