Ice on Chickawaukee

5 days into Jan Thaw; ice further from shore so plank just reaches, water level up 6 inches in 2 days from 1 1/4 inch rain and snow melt. Drain holes bigger, no puddles or shell ice left, pancakes have deflated to depressed rough spots. Need 2 cold nights to heal holes to minimum 1 1/2 inch, better 3 nights to 2 inches, likely snow by then. What kind of “sport” is this?
