For the past seven years, the owners of Full Spectrum Solutions, Mike and Diane Nevins, have sponsored the 4th of July fireworks at Big Wolf Lake in support of the Jackson Community and the Boy Scouts of America Camp TeetonkahIt. All sponsorships go towards the Boy Scouts of America fireworks show.
Over 11,000 attendees watched in 2011 as Mike and Cal Nevins, founders of Wolf Lake Pyro, set off several hundred fireworks taking up the better part of their Monday evening. This July 4th, the Nevins’s are anticipating an even bigger show being ignited from the Camp Teetonkah site.
As this is the 8thannual show for Wolf Lake, the benefits of being able to use the land at Camp Teetonkah are two-fold. “Watching a fireworks show over the lake is an entirely different experience for the community than watching a show over land. The reflection of the fireworks on the water enhances the overall experience,” said Cal Nevins.
Safety is the second major benefit the campsite offers. “It’s important that we keep a minimum safety distance of 1,000 feet in the event of premature detonation of a shell,” stated Mike Nevins. “Using the camp is essential because we automatically have protection on three sides. The only people we have to worry about are the ones on the lake and we’re able to setup far back enough that it isn’t a problem.”
Businesses that have partnered with Full Spectrum Solutions, Inc. this year are Christoff & Sons, Comerica Bank, WestPoint Bar & Grill, Advanced Packaging, Kelly Services, Craft Agency, Hammond Propane, Borchardt Brothers, Aggies Sports Bar, Willbee Transit, Marco’s Pizza.
All sponsorships will help the Great Sauk Trail Council continue to hold outdoor programs such as leadership training, conservation classes, and conflict resolution for the Boy Scouts at Camp Teetonkah.
