Ole and Lena Win a Cruise Dinner Theater:
Every year Lena listens to her friends at the Curler and talk about their vacations; but year after year, she is disappointed. Ole's idea of a vacation is going to the Muskrat Lodge's Annual Convention, usually a camping event held in Potsdam at a park only two miles from their farm! This year, Lena has decided that she and Ole are going on a romantic vacation, even if it kills him. Meanwhile, Ole won the grand prize raffle at the Muskrat Lodges annual "Don't get your tail caught in the trap" celebration. Ole and Sven didn't even remember that there had been a raffle, let alone what he might have won. Rumor has it that the grand prize might be a cruise to the Caribbean! Find out whether Ole will talk Lena into going camping? Or will Lena finally get the romantic vacation she has dreamed about?
