2007 Western Regions Gull Lke

Minnesota has been blessed with its earliest ice in years. At least 10 DN's have sailed this weekend at both Lake Christina  and a small pond, Swede Lake. Both were sailable ice and thick enough. Lake Buffalo is frozen and now has an inch of blown crusty snow from last night. A few other lakes will freeze this week with cold weather predicted. Heavy winds are forecast across MN for next two days as well.
I have consulted with a number of DN racers about calling on the 2014 Western Regional for this next weekend, Nov 22-23.
The decision I have made based on many factors is to continue to hold for the Dec 13-14 dates. With the early winter setting in, many lakes in our region have reasonable potential to be venues for the Westerns. Continue to report ice conditions on the DN Forum, iceboating.net and iceboat.org.

The 2014 Westerns are still scheduled for Dec 13-14, 2014. I am waiting for todays little bands of snow and sleet to finish up before posting the primary site. Watch for posting here by Tuesday morning. Please call me at 612-868-2949 should you have ice conditions to report in the Western Region.
For the 87 some DN's that raced in Kegonsa for the Great Western Challenge, congratulations for taking advantage of some of the best regatta ice, temperatures and wind in years. 4Lakes did a wonderful job in all aspects of hosting the Minnesota boys event. Kegonsa is high on the list for this weekends Westerns..
