One Week Away – Till The Off-Ice Tune-Up – Sat 11/20
The Tune-Up Event is one week away! Come on down for help in getting your boat on the ice. Come to pick up parts or transfer them to those that need them. Come for the food, there is a rumor about a big pot of venison chili and of course all the rest presented by Linda.
If you have any interest in iceboating this is the place to be on the 20th. You may have seen us on some frozen lake in New England and always wanted to try it. Maybe you are tired of frostbiting and looking for drier winter sailing? Maybe read about it on Scuttlebutt Sailing News and promised yourself that this is the year you get into iceboating. Drag that iceoat out of the rafters and bring it down for a survey and help in getting it ice-worthy. The iceboating welcome mat is out. Come on down.
Whatever your interest level Show up and let’s get you started.
We have a full schedule of events but want to focus on the new iceboaters. Especially those that are struggling to figure it all out and get themselves and their boats on the ice for the first time. Calling all Newbies here is your chance to have even the questions you didn’t know to ask answered. Bring your boats down to be surveyed by a collective of maybe 1000 years of iceboating experience. I have spoken to several of you personally at the swap meet and anyone else
