Current update on conditions for the Stampede:
We got the WAK shak out on the lake early last week. We had 14" of ice right at the site. We also built 3 ramps already. We rode several days last week. I rode Sunday and it was a little blown off in the middle of the lake with bands of snow here and there. Closer towards shore their was good snow and some excellent natural ramps from some of the ice shoves. You can easily drive right out to the event site which is about a quarter mile out from shore. We also started construction of an ice bar for the event. Forecast is looking good for snow. We got a couple of inches of snow overnight Sunday-Monday. Currently it is snowing again with at least another inch on the ground already. Forecast calls for a few more inches overnight Wednesday-Thursday and then again on Sunday. Temps are looking to be fairly comfortable in the low to mid 30's this weekend. Now let's just hope the wind also shows up. We will be out on the lake every day this week building ramps and getting the event site ready. Hope you guys can make it out as the conditions are looking pretty good for the weekend.
BTW, here is a link Dan posted on our forum to a video he took late last week. Check it out and you can see what the event site looked like mid-last week.

Hey Stampeders! We got great snow last night with the storm that blew through yesterday. We probably have 4-6" everywhere. The road is plowed out to the stampede site. We got 14-16"of ice! There are two bridges you have to cross on your way out to the site, but they aren't a big deal. Looks like 10-20 mph out of the South Saturday and 15-25 mph on Sunday. The rider meeting Saturday is at 11am, so get there early to set up and register. Racing to start at noon! Whether you plan on competing or just cruising, show up to share the laughs and good times at one of the best Kiteboarding events throughout the Midwest!
