Kiters Winterfest at Green Lake is the weekend of January 24-25. And snow conditions look great! We will have all the extras of last year; fireworks, ice castles, wine tasting, waffle feeds, bon fires, etc. Yes, we have been invited to a festival as a guest of honor and all we have to do is show up. Kiters of all levels are invited. For those in the competitive frame of mind, we will have various competitions including a long distance enduro with a $500 purse. What, not only train for the Kite Crossing, but get paid for it? There will be a $20 registration fee for those with the competitive itch.
Once again, Melvin’s on the Lake is our host. With the popularity of the Festival, parking on land may be limited. You can access the lake by a ramp just north (left) of the Ice Castle, then drive around the snowfence to the right and park on the shoreline in front of Melvin’s. There is a Frozen 5K Run/Walk starting at 9:00 Saturday morning, so we will have an event meeting at 10:30 on the deck at Melvin’s.
We have procured a special kiter rate of $39.95 per room at the Super 8 in nearby Wilmar. The phone # is 320-235-4444. Easiest directions coming from the Cities are west on Hwy 12 to Kandiyohi and take a left on Co.Rd. 8. It will come to a ‘T’ at Green Lake and Melvin’s is less than a mile to the left. We have included a social agenda below. For more info, contact us at email@example.com.
