Via Western Region Commodore Daniel Hearn:

DN Sailors:
Lake Pepin is being sailed today as a possible venue for the Western Region Championships to take place this weekend, Jan. 5-6. I will have a full ice report with video and pictures by late afternoon. At this point, no other good possibilities have been identified, though anything else served up will still be considered. Send any other reports ASAP. Recent snow events have taken out, for now, the lakes that were previously frozen. Many lakes in the southern portion of our region remain open, however, so more possibilities with the next cold weather/calm winds stretch. I hope to make a final call by end of day today. Stay tuned, and think ice!
