It's that time of the season when we start to think of the up coming ice season. If your like me, you've spent a few moments sitting in the basement looking longingly at your ice gear, spending some time with a file getting the sharp bits ready, and thinking of snow and icicles.

Last night, over a few pints, talk of this years ice opener came up.
-What date will work for most of you????? December 9 came up as a possibility
-Weather permitting, Quick and Dirty as usually??

Let's try to get some discussion going on some of this so we can try and formalize some of the details and then get the word out.......

December 9.....The same weekend as the Canmore Ice Climbing festival. We already have paid for tickets for the festival, so we'll be up there for Saturday for sure. I'd love to come to the Ice opener again this year, so keep us posted if there's another day the weekend before or after that you guys decide on.

I will be back there that weekend. The 16th may be a good one. I can open the cabin for whoever wants to stay - assuming I get the hot water working!

The 9th would be better for me as I have to work on the 16th, but I do feel a bit of a cold coming on (cough cough) so if its on the 16th (cough) I may have to call in sick. (cough)

Either date works for me.....just hope it's cold enough. Of course if it warms up to much like last year we could always bring some beer over to Chris's and spend the weekend contemplating the hot water situation!!

Either date works for me too. If you need people to bring things for the BBQ or stuff like that, please let me know. Thanks.
