Dear Fellow Iceboaters!


It is just to remind you that next weekend (8-10 January 2016) is the date for the MITROPA TROPHY, which is organized by the Hungarian DN Class. The weather forecast is promising and we have already several spots here in Hungary for the event. Valence Lake has today 4-5 cm of smooth ice and according to the forecast next week it will be suitable and safe to organize the event. Wednesday I will travel to the Tisza Lake to check the conditions there. According to the information received for the local people they have 6-8 cm of black ice and there will be below -10 degC temperatures during the nights. I will keep you informed about the ice situation here in Hungary. The final decision about the site will be according the organization rules, i.e. on late Thursday.

Please make your entry on the official MITROPA site:


Keep your runners sharp and take you directions towards Hungary!

Think Ice!!
