4824 and 4961 and me, 5214 went back up to Christina yesterday (Saturday, December 12th). Light wind let us get in some practice racing. The ice condition at first appeared better. The surface was all nice and clean. Once we got out there, there were a lot of drain holes and we had to carefully navigate those to get to west side of the lake. We setup some cones, marked the obvious drain hole, and had a nice day. I learned that the drain holes are the shiny black areas. Drain holes are hard to see, for me.
The Doctor had the speed. The ice was starting to get pretty well honey combed by the end of the day. One of us didn't make it through the shore/duck/mud hazard without putting a foot in. All in all a pretty good day.
