We had a great event and a wonderful, better than expected turnout! (Sorry we ran out of chips!)

Over 140 people (and 1 spiderman) joined us in the cold on the ice.

The kids enjoyed watching the holes get drilled in the ice!

At least one fish was caught (and released).

Luckily we had hot cocoa and soup to warm us up!
