DN Western Challenge Update (Dec 6 & 7)



Several lakes of suitable size appear worthy of consideration at the present time, (frozen, nominal snow cover) Notably, Buffalo and the shallow lakes near Ashby, Christina & Pelican, both in Minnesota.

Based on what we now know, we're "pretty sure" the primary site will be Buffalo Lake, Buffalo Minnesota.

The MISA is seeking a nominally qualified race official to assist in starting/scoring this epic ice battle. Volunteers may contact Mark Kiefer or John Dennis.

For those travelling from out of state in particular, please note there are several Buffalo names in Minnesota, please make certain you are travelling to the right one!
