Great Pond was in nice condition today, with big plates of flawless ice punctuated by smaller plates of slightly rough stuff.

Dave Godine and Paul Miner didn’t make it in time for this line-up, but Denis Guertin, Jim Gagnon and Bill Bunting did:

The pits on Great Pond are a bit of a mess with shell ice at the approach and big patches of sand blown on. Making a downwind approach was demanding to say the least.
