Lake Christina

I'm thinking of sailing Lake Christina Saturday. Launch from the public ramp on the south side of the lake. From HWY 78 take 82 East. Intersection of 82 and 100th ave.

We now have Harlan Balgaard, owner of the home next to the landing who had the photo of the old iceboat as an ice scout for us. His phone is 218-747-2929.
I also emailed him the link to this website.

JD's Scouting for Skeeters

Check with him about his schedule. He needs to find the biggest, best ice for the skeeters.

Still some very sailable ice

Still some very sailable ice up here in T.B.

Swede no good.

As of last Saturday early morning, Swede was 2-2.5 inches, with 1/2" of water on top, and ice was too soft to walk on without cracking. With the warm temps, and current 10 day forcast, I predict it will be sailable on weekend of 12/14, but certainly not good enough to call on a Skeeter regatta with people traveling.

I'm planning on attending Skeeter Challenge if possible (somebody has to place last), so let me know what I can do to help scout for ice. Should we try the skeeters on Pelican this coming weekend??
