Thunder Bay Ice boating

Ross Owen,an artist who lives on Lake Superior has been generous enough to invite Ice boaters to use his property as access to the Lake.
Check out his Website,as he has some great shots and Video of sailing out in front of his place .Some shots are from yesterday and some from last year with my ice boating buddies Bruce Wegger and Kurt Martinson from MN.
While your on the site check out the Kayak Sailing boat Ross built.

Minnetonka Status

Anyone checking Lake Minnetonka? Too much snow?
What's the status for sailing Saturday or Sunday?
Thanks

SE Iowa

Sailed off Sandy Beach at the Coralville Rez last week on 8" ice. The crust is now gone and the winds are picking up.

UPDATE: ABC On-Site this Saturday, Sunday and Monday on Lake Minnetonka. (21, 22, 23)

Due to potential snow on Sunday the producer(film guy) will be coming in on Friday night and we will start the filming on Saturday. The correspondent, Ginger Zee, will be out on Monday.

Let's aim to start the first of the races at around noon on Saturday.

I will be organizing with the producer on Saturday morning. For the time being he and I will be meeting at Harry's.

Things should just happen naturally.

If Sunday looks nice we will also be filming.

ABC National News UPDATE: On the Minnetonka Ice Sunday and Monday (22nd and 23rd)

UPDATE:

I have just gotten off the phone with the producers at ABC News GMA Weekend Edition. They are looking at coming to Minnetonka on Sunday(22nd) and Monday(23rd). Sunday would be filming the racing and iceboats sailing around as well as few sound bites. Monday would be sailing with the correspondent which I will arrange on the side. If you are around and can sail on Monday, please feel free to come out.

Saturday we should get out on the ice as well. Let's do some races. I am volunteering my time to do whatever is necessary to ensure that the shoot tells are really great story.

A Beautiful Day to Sail

ABC National News and GMA to film on Lake Minnetonka

Greetings fellow Iceboaters,

A few weeks ago I got a call from ABC News regarding Iceboating on Minnetonka, and spot to be featured on Good Morning America's Weekend Edition. The details are still coming together and will be finalized mid-week. I have been organizing this with a few iceboaters to make sure we have some key pieces covered.
