Good morning everyone.

There are 2 snowkiting events happening in Madison this February.

1) FROZEN ASSETS: FEB, 4th and 5th - SEE INFO BELOW.
2) MADISON SNOWKITE RALLY: FEB 25TH AND 26TH - MORE INFO COMING SOON.

Kiteridersllc.com and Hoofers Snowkiting are participating in the FROZEN ASSETS event this weekend at the Edgewater Hotel on Lake Mendota.

We''ll be out on the lake on both Saturday and Sunday.

*Look for us set up on the outer perimeter of the event. Black tent.
*Snowkite racing for every ability level.
*Freestyle and Big Air.
*Demo kites.
*Conditions are excellent and it looks like wind both days.

Racing will start at noon.
Big Air/Freestyle will start at 2:00

Times are subject to change a little depending on the winds.

Come on out and join in on the fun. You don't need to race or compete in the big air and freestyle to attend. Come and join us for a fun weekend on the frozen lakes.

Even if there's little wind, come on out, we'll still have some fun things to do.

The Clean lakes Alliance is an organization we should all support and is the organization that is running the Frozen Assets event this weekend.
They do a fantastic job helping to be on the front end of cleaning up our Madison area lakes.
