    ICE RUNWAY Fly-In

    ICE RUNWAY IS OPEN TODAY Sunday 3/8/15

    Location: Alton Bay, Lake Winnepesauke, New Hampshire
    Free
    Anytime this winter... Due to crappy weather on February 21.
    See the latest arrangement.

    The report from New Hampshire AirBoss Ron Cribbie is that
    LAKE WINNEPESAUKE IS FROZEN but the recent blizzard has delayed snow plowing.

    Normally B18 is an official FAA seaplane runway but BAC arranges for it to freeze for our fly-in.
    Call the recorded phone number 603 875-3498 for a daily recording on conditions.

    The alternate is Emerson Aviation FBO at Laconia, New Hampshire KLCI about 6 miles north.

    Remember: "Musketeers Do Not Float!". Land carefully and taxi s-l-o-w-l-y!
    More info closer to date.

    Lunch is dutch treat at the restaurant near the ice runway.

    Persinger and I are thinking about flying in for this. We will probably overnight and head back out on Sunday. Where should we stay and how do we get there and get around while there? Is there a rental car or taxi service anywhere local?

    Also, what about hangar or pre-heating for the next day?

    Where is the nearest place for pond hockey ? This should be Wicked fun. Is there any special tire pressures to use ? Coach Bilichick has me concerned about the quick barometric changes that happen up there.

    Nearest friendly FBO is Emerson Aviation at KLCI, Laconia, New Hampshire.
    Laconia is the best near-the-ice place to Google for hotels and cars in the area.
    Emerson can likely answer your inquiries.

    Here is a video of what Dentist Alan White and Salesman John Persinger can expect on the ice: http://www.youtube.com/embed/cgnceHH...id=P9VMVUJKfvA

    Tom, this is another vehicle in New England that doesn't use a pressurized tire.

    I think he's saying he's cooking venison for us while we're there!

    The North East region will have the Weather Channel at the Ice Runway Fly in ? Pretty exciting in the Boston Area https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PdRWGMyeSYY .
