Please be patient.  I understand many are anxious for the call, but I won't have enough information to make a decision until sometime Friday morning.  Right now it's 47 degrees in Madison and we've got lots of water on top of ice on all the Madison area lakes.  Same on Green Lake, Winnebago, Delavan and Lake Geneva.  When the temps drop back below freezing this afternoon and get down to 9 degrees overnight, we could have either hockey rinks or runner swallowing shell ice and drain holes.  The radical temperature shift could also create cracks/heaves.  Unfortunately, I'm just not going to know until tomorrow.  A number of us will be on Middleton Bay on the west end of Lake Mendota early tomorrow morning.  It is our intention to inspect and sail, and call the event "ON" if at all possible.  Lake Mendota remains our most probable possibility, but the other lakes mentioned above are not out of consideration.  Others will be inspecting those tomorrow morning, as well.   

Stay tuned...
