Moosehead Lake is shaping up nicely for the weekend. Sunny with winds in the 20’s on Saturday, sun with winds in the teens Sunday. Reports from locals on the condition of the surface, along with web cam images, indicate it will be good enough. The rain falling today will hopefully drain out or evaporate before the temps plunge, reducing chances of shell ice forming.
The 100 mile race will start at 10:00 Sunday. Launch at The Birches, Rockwood, ME. The Birches has one cabin open for Friday, and a lodge room for both nights. Moose Mt. Inn has two rooms open for the weekend.
We will be on the ice Friday by noon and will post an update on conditions then.
