Inside scoop at Chicky 1/25

Lovely ice, grade 10 in Northern zone, 8 in Southern zone. Rare patches of dry thin shell, nice breeze this AM. You are welcome to leave boats for days, beach is strong enough to roll trailers on today. See website for details.

“Fred Musser and I will arrive mid-dayish and at least set-up, but hopefully sail. Buchholz will call Breck to tell him of our plans; they were intending to sail on Meguntacook – so possibly we will have 3 Nites and sail around some marks. My plan would be to leave my boat there through the week-end, and catch the good ice after Sunday’s rain.

Lloyd Roberts replies:
“I just got home after sunset. We will be doing an ice bike or skating survey Thurs AM to be sure the deeper puddles are navigable. Friday should be a sure thing, Saturday’s warm temps may make the lawn soft by afternoon. We will check out the Public beach in the AM, the ice was tight to the shore a couple of days ago but the ramp was open water. You are all welcome but don’t rush out onto the ice at day break. We should have a good survey by late AM.”

“Just for the record, I took a look at Dammy, and Chickie is obviously much better.
I plan to set up at Heron Beach tomorrow after lunch, if that is acceptable to the land owner.
