We are sending out a warning shot with our intentions of running the Eastern's this weekend off of Shelbourne town beach just south of Burlington, VT on the broad lake of Champlain.  We have a rain event moving through the region on wednesday night and thursday that will dictate our decision to be made on friday around noon after it has been sailed. Be ready to roll!

Eben, T and Chad,

With a view to maximizing attendance the Canadian Region will not plan on running the Canadians this weekend.  It also appears from early reports that Champlain ice is likely to be better than Kingston - both sites are getting rain so I guess the odds of drain holes are even. 

Those of us planning on attending who are travelling from Nova Scotia are looking at 13 hours of driving to Shelburne VT per Google (plus gas and nature stops), so please get the final confirmation out on Friday as early as possible.   Smiley
