DNR reminder: ice is not safe right now

Ice is forming on some lakes, rivers and ponds around Minnesota, but DNR conservation officers warn it is too early to venture out. 

  

“The thin layers of ice forming on some Minnesota waters right now are not safe,” said Maj. Greg Salo, operations manager, DNR Enforcement Division. “A few days of cold temperatures don’t create ice strong enough to hold a person.”

According to Salo, three people died last winter after falling through the ice.

The DNR recommends anyone heading out on the ice should: carry a set of ice picks, check with a local bait shop or resort— ask about ice conditions— and measure the ice.

DNR clear ice thickness recommendations are:
4 inches for walking.
5 inches for a snowmobile or ATV.
8-12 inches for a car.
12-15 inches for a medium-sized truck.

Wayzata Youth Hockey issued the following statement over the weekend in response to the death of Eagan hockey player Patrick Schoonover during the Battle for the Blue Ox Bantam AA tournament game between Eastview and Wayzata:

 "The coaches, players and parents of Wayzata Youth Hockey Association and the Wayzata Bantam AA hockey team extend our deepest condolences and sympathies to the family of the Eastview player who passed away late yesterday during a game against Wayzata. Our Association community is heartbroken and devastated but this pales in comparison to the loss we know the family, coaches and players of Eastview must be feeling. We extend our prayers to the family and ask that whole Minnesota hockey community remember and celebrate this young man’s life.”

DNR: Minnesota’s snowmobile trails open Dec. 1

Despite the recent snowfall throughout much of Minnesota, snowmobile trails are not yet ready for riding, according to the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources.

Minnesota’s snowmobile trails officially open Dec. 1; however, several conditions must be met before trails open and are ready for travel:

  • Ground must be frozen allowing for crossings in wet areas.
  • Trails must have adequate snow cover – about 12 inches – on the ground to allow for trail packing and grooming. 
  • Landowner permits that allow trails on private land must be in place.
  • Trails must be cleared of dead fall, signs need to be in place and gates need to be opened.

The vast majority of the state’s 22,000 miles of groomed snowmobile trail system exists on private property with written permission from the landowner. The permission allows snowmobile use only from Dec. 1 through March 31.

When the trails open, the DNR urges early season riders to use caution. Early season trails may have fallen trees or other debris across the trails, unfrozen areas, rocks or ruts, or standing crops and closed gates.

In preparation for Dec. 1, the DNR reminds riders to verify their snowmobile registration is current. Information on registration as well as snowmobile trail maps and snowmobile safety course information is available at www.dnr.state.mn.us/snowmobiling/index.html or by contacting the DNR Information Center at info.dnr@state.mn.us or651-296-6157, 888-646-6367, between 8 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.

WAYZATA PUBLIC SCHOOLS: Fall musical Spamalot scheduled for November 13-15 & November 20-22


Wayzata High School and the Wayzata Players, under the direction of Mark Gitch, Adam Hegg, Melissa O’Neill, and Cathy Wind, are proud to present the fall musical, “Spamalot”.

If nothing else we must take silliness seriously. Monty Python’s “Spamalot” is an absurd romp through the middle ages. Our students will don swords and tabards and seek the Holy Grail through a Vegas-like Camelot, a Forest where dwell Knights who say “Ni” and killer rodents all while being not quite dead. This show takes absolutely nothing seriously and as such in addition to your ticket make sure to have your sense of humor firmly intact.
