FYI . . . to all. As long as there's ice on the lake, 180Go! will be there.

Also . . . here's a video from last year's festival. It was a bit cold and windy, but a good day for kite flying! I only slipped and fell on the ice once!

OK folks, only a couple days to go! Weather is looking like it won't be too cold either - and this week should have made the ice super thick!

I was thinking about attending... but then the cold numbed my brain. Hope to see a few photos from there. Have fun.

It was a little chilly! Good fun though.

Here's a picture of our performance field on the frozen lake, marked by the usual flags and another sign...

Thanks for the photos. Looks great.

One day, I too will be able to walk upside down. ;)

Walking upside down puts less pressure on the ice.

That's so odd... it's right-side up when I look at it on my phone!
