The 2016 Western Region Championship Regatta is called on for Green Lake at Spicer, MN. This is a preliminary call!
2 ranked DN sailors will be scouting the lake Wednesday morning, Dec 30, 2015. The final call and hotel information will be posted by 8PM December 30, 2015. The conditions reported by 3 separate scouts show 3.5" of optically clear new ice as far as you can see from the shore in Spicer. Cold temps over the next 3 days promises more ice making. I have tried to attach two photos. If they do not show up, Geoff Sobering, Secretary of IDNIYRA will try to get them attached. If not, a similar posting with photos will be made to the Facebook Group IDNIYRA, Minnesota iceboaters and 4 lakes group. An alternate site is also available in Garrison, MN on Lake Mille Lacs.
 
Sharpen your runners!

Remember to bring a copy of your current proof of insurance. Registering online and payment on the IDNIYRA website saves time. You must be a current(2016) member of IDNIYRA(dues paid since May 1, 2015) You can also renew and pay on line prior to event.
