I sure will keep everyone informed as we get closer to the event we still have not picked the location due to some odd ice this year but we should know on that by the end of next week.

If anyone needs a hotel we got a block of rooms under Grand Bay Kite at the Motel 6 in Traverse City. Rooms 41.39 Friday and Saturday 37.79 for Sunday 231 938-3002.

If you are going to come up please go to the event site www.kitederby.com and make sure to registure so we know how many people we need to plan on.

Thanks

Brian

We are getting snow and our favorite lake is now completely frozen across with 2+ inches of ice on it so we may end up there if we get some more ice build up in the next 5 days or so otherwise we will be on Lake Skegamog which has a good solid 6+ inches and with daytime temps not even hitting 30 we should have good ice conditions in alot of places up this way

I can't wait to have everyone up here

Dave Clark and I went out to check ice on Lake Leelanau for 3 hours today and we have 3 spots that will rock for the event with really good ice so we are getting ready to roll for this weekend so rally up your buddies and get up here and kite this weekend with us

Brian,

I am planning to come up this weekend but I am going to drive up Sat morning. Do I necessarily have to register if I won't compete? I haven't been kiteboarding for very long so I'd just come up to ride a bit becasue conditions in DTW suck.

Is there only ice or some snow (~ how much) on the lake you are palling to ride?

Thanks

Cornelius

Dave & Brian, is it offically on Lake Leelanau?

We can still get a house to rent right on this lake, so if it is here I want to book it.

Please let me know

John

the wind forcast for the weekend is a nice 15-20 all weekend but it has alot of west in it so i am going to check a different spot on the east side of the lake out tonight to make sure the ice is good there if so we will be good with anything but an east wind which is pretty uncommon for us this launch is about 2 miles south of our number one choice which doesnt have good ice but the southern and northen parts of the lake have been frozen for over a month and and bingum park the ice just filled in last week so there is only 2-3 inches there we are also checking out Glen Lake this afternoon.

So if the ice is solid at Lakeshore Road Access then we will probly still shoot for Lake Leelanau across the lake at Salon Park the ice was a good 9-10 inches so if it is solid across the entire south end like that we will be rocking out on Lake Leelanau.

also if you are going to show up and ride we would like to have you register even if you dont wanna race we are just trying to get a decent head count to give timberlee so they know about how many people to expect.

[/size]Also please make sure you bring a helmet up with you, NO HELMET = NO RIDING with us

[size=12]
Thanks

Brian

I just secured a huge rental house right by the event site on Lake Leelanau. I read the owner the directions from Dave at H2O and she said it will be almost right in front of our pad. What a BONUS, kite out the front door.

If anyone who knows me and/or Mark and needs a place for Friday and/or Saturday call me at 586-201-4603. I would like to get 1-2 more to keep the cost down for all of us. I will be with my wife and son & Mark will be with his pregnant wife. So low key here, the Turtle will be laying low. Most of the kiters I know from Detroit should not be around little children or women for that matter. Hopefully Mark knows of a couple people!

The Weather for the weekend looks SWEETTTTTTTTTTTTTT!

See everyone Friday.

John

We have the best snow of the season right now and wind to go with it so get up here and play in the 12 inches of powder smile.gif in 15-30 mph winds
