We'll need to bring our skates, sticks and sun-tan lotion for Jeff's fire, but let's not forget a couple of snow shovels.
Unless Hawk and Sacco want to build a One-Wheeled Zamboni.

So far the following 10 people have posted on this thread:
Neil
Redhawk
Martin
Mountain Mama
Dick
Sacco
Mavs00
KWC
Fvrwld
Wilderness photo.
I'll be bringing at least 3 other skaters (and stick wielders). For an event such as this we can count on about half of those who are interested actually making it. So we should beef up the number of participants. How about I to post links on the other boards to this thread? I might PM the odd VFTTer whose location I know to be near Montreal.

Wow, I can't believe I've been skipping over this thread... shame on me!

I'm definitely in, and if anyone has size 12-13 skates I may even try my hand at skating. I'm horrible at roller blades/skates, but I know how to fall

How's the first or second weekend in November sound? Will it be cold enough by then? Otherwise, the weekend after Thanksgiving would work too... hell, I'm free for the remainder of the year now that I'm not chasing 46.

Put me down as a maybe.

I should be free after deer season (early Dec.)

How about January 1st or 2nd. They'll definately be enough ice by then. A lot of Saturdays are tough for me. I have RPI hockey season tickets and never miss a home game. Sundays I'm free. My brother sounded interested and will probably really want to go if there is a game involved. If he doesn't go Kevin you can probably borrow his skates...I believe they are size 12. I also have an extra pair of mens size 8 hockey skates(size 10wms) for anyone to borrow.

Neil,

You left out Joanne. We're a package deal! That makes 12, I think. Not to put a damper on things, but isn't that the limit for group camping? And don't we need a permit to do this?

I really doubt there would be any ice worth playing on in November. I'd wait until December or January.

I think you're right (now 12, but was 16), so we will probably need one. Once a firm date is set myself or someone else involved will obtain the permit needed .

We go to Middle Lake, 6 can camp at one site, 6 at another, not very far apart.

Jeff can build the fire halfway in between.

Would we be camping out or doing this as a day hike? Or do we need a permit and does the group size need to be kept down to the limit one way or the other? If we go in Jan. that'll mean mucho shovelling and maybe some pretty cold feet. I'll hold off on posting a link on the other boards especially as most of us will be bringing someone.

A day hike might attract more people who don't like camping in winter. But this could be an optional thing too, it might attract people that have a longer car ride.
I agree that November is probably too soon, we want to make sure the ice will be hard. If it's not below zere (celsius), the ice will be mushy.

funny that we mention Jeff every second post, talking about a fire in winter, when he's probably making a fire on a beach in the islands right now.

I vote for January ....

January sounds like a better time ... the weekend of Jan 1-2 might be a bit tough on a lot of people so how about the following weekend, like Jan 9th?

I'm for a day hike, then maybe those who want to stay overnight can camp or stay in LP (be nice to go out for a nice dinner or something in LP after the hockey "game"). I believe my wife would be up for the day hike/bonfire/skating extravaganza coupled with an overnight in LP ... she's not a winter camper.

From what I hear about the master fire builder, will we need a special DEC permit for a clear cut so we have enough wood for the fire, or maybe even a special permit since the fire might be distracting to transcontinental airflights, etc.??

I'll take care of the clear-cut permit, although I think we can keep it under 3 acres...I've got my 6lb. chopping axe. I stay warm swinging that! I'm not sure where to get the "transconteninental airflights permit, but I'll look into it!

If January it is, bring your shovels and strong backs! We'll need both scrapers and lifters. And with this fire I keep reading about we'll really need more than 6 inches of ice! If nobody camps do we still need a permit?
