Yep, there's snow on the way, but it's forecast to stay south of Battle Lake, the site of this year's ISA Championship. JD sailed the lake just this morning and said it's smooth and slick. Tonka may be mushy, but it's another world north of Ashby.
Battle Lake hosted a Western Challenge a few years back, and drew nearly 90 boats. Hoping to muster up a bunch of Nites from the Twin Cities. Name the last time the ISA Regatta was this close to home. I think the answer is, "NEVER!!!!"
Details for launching and hotel stuff can be found at iceboat.org on the ISA page.
I'd like to drive up Thursday, but can't. Am planning on an early drive Friday morning (in the snow). Nites start fourth in the rotation, so there's extra time.
If you've been hemming and hawing about how little we've sailed this year, ..... then this is a no brainer. Got questions? Post them here.
