TheSCOOP by Lee Tugas

Friday31 Music and Art HOOSICK FALLS The Armory in Hoosick Falls will offer a full evening of the arts on Friday, Jan. 31, as hosts an opening reception for paintings by Hoosick Falls artist A a r o n Buzzinski at 6 p.m., and a performance by a cappella group, Welcome Blend at 7 p.m.

Born in Pennsylvania but raised in Hoosick Falls, Buzzinski honed his artistic skills designing, building and painting sets for the Hoosick Falls High School Drama Club. Some of the materials he uses in his works include repurposed wood and barn board, acrylic paint, latex house paint, paper, actual lights and more. His work is influenced by the paintings of American artist Edward Hopper. The hills, fields and buildings found locally are a source of inspiration for Buzzinski. “I love the architecture, the roof lines, the front porches,

the shingle patterns and slate roofs, the shapes of the windows in the houses and buildings in Hoosick Falls,” he said. “There’s so much beauty hidden in plain sight.” Also on exhibit is a collection of the Hoosick Artist Guild titled “Luminous.” At 7 p.m., don’t miss a cappella sounds of Welcome Blend. This mixed quartet sings songs in a variety of styles including barbershop, gospel, jazz and contemporary. They will perform in the Owls Nest at the The Armory, 80 Church St., Hoosick Falls. Admission is free to this allages show. For more information, call 518-686-9050 or visit www.

Saturday1 Ice Fishing Tourney COSSAYUNA One of the area’s fastest-growing ice fishing tournaments returns on Saturday, Feb. 1, at the Sixth Annual Cossayuna Lake Ice Fishing Tournament and 50/50 Raffle. The event is presented by the Cossayuna L a k e Improvement Association. The tournament has grown from 80 contestants just a couple of years ago to 219 anglers in 2013. “It was a real surprise last year,” said organizer Nancy Hieber. “We couldn’t believe how many people turned up. Everyone had a good time.” The tourney organizers were prepared, however, and registration went very smoothly. “There were no long lines; it was a good flow,” Hieber said. Contestants come from both the local area and from surrounding states, including Connecticut and Massachusetts, she said. The tourney starts at 7 a.m. and runs through 3:30 p.m. Fishermen can register in advance by calling Hieber at 518-692-9206 or that morning starting at 5:30 a.m. until 8 a.m. at the Cossayuna Fire House on Bunker Hill Road. Registration cost is $10 per person. Bait can be purchased at the Lakeside General Store. One unique feature of the tournament is the ability for fishermen to check in by phone with their catch, rather than

take the time to head to the check-in location at Pratt’s Point. Throughout the day, fishermen can call 692-9206 to learn the measurement of the largest fish caught so far. Awards are given for largest pike or tiger muskie, largest perch, and largest crappie. Last year’s winners were Steve LeBlanc, who brought in a 37-inch northern pike, Peter Holcomb, who caught a 13 ¾-inch perch, and Jacob Foster, whose catch was a 14 ¾-inch crappie. The event also includes a 50/50 raffle, which is open to everyone, not just those participating in the tournament. Tickets will be available for sale at the event. The raffle proceeds will benefit the CLIA. For more information, visit or call Hieber at 518-692-9206.


Youth Breakfast ARGYLE The Argyle Youth Commission announces that an “all-you-can-eat” breakfast of pancakes, eggs, sausage and other treats will be offered Argyle Central School from 8 to 11 a.m. on Saturday, Feb. 1, with baseball and softball sign-ups taking place during the breakfast.
