Happy Thanksgiving On This Chilly Day!

Wow girl, it might be Thanksgiving and the start of a nice cold snap but that ice is not safe.

Wishing everyone a Happy and Safe Thanksgiving. We all have lots to be thankful for but since this is the official NEIYA site I am thankful for this cold snap and the prospect of early ice. Enjoy friends and family and find some time to work on your equipment over the long weekend.

Next up: The Annual Tune Up Clinic. Generously hosted once again by the Arthur C. Lamb Company in Canton MA but most of us just know it as Steve Lamb’s shop.

Date: Saturday December 15th
Time: 10:00 am – 3:00 pm
Location: Arthur C. Lamb Company Refreshments: Served continuously throughout the day and lunch about noon

We have a big day planed


  • Dave Fortier: Runner Edge Prep with stoning demo
  • Eben Whitcomb & Greg Cornelius on Rules / Safety
  • Jeff Kent & James “T” Thieler on Shifting gears – how to set your boat up for different
    Wind/Ice conditions and how components work together.

This event is an excellent opportunity to get the information you need to get on the ice for the first time or go faster than last year. If you are interested we will help get you in your first boat. Remember there is plenty of room so bring iceboats or parts for sale.

Have something laying around your not using? Bring it for someone else to enjoy. Your old equipment could be someone’s first boat. The items on the NEIYA classifieds page might be available for drop off and pickup. Ask the seller(s) directly.


We welcome any newcomers trying to get into ice boating and onto the ice this season. Have a boat sitting in your garage, barn or cellar? Bring it down we have experts standing by to go over your craft and develop a plan to get you sailing this season. Don’t know how to rig your boat? We will show you. Not sure if all the pieces are there? We will go over it with you. We are here to help usher you safely onto the ice. No reservation needed but would appreciate you dropping me a note so we can be sure to reserve room.

See you all there and let me know if you have any questions.

Think Ice!

  1. Thanks for the warm welcome to the Tune Up clinic, John. Will you also be initiating an annual Turkey Award for the iceboater with the most dunkings?
