    Trick Air Ski Plane fly-in at Jackson Seaplane Base McGregor, MN Saturday January 25th, 2020

    The 5th Annual is on the calendar. Come one come all and dress for the elements....

    We are hoping for better weather this year than last. The MSP area was IFR most of the day and we only made it to about 10 degrees.

    Little different set up this year. I am moving most everything to the lake and will have fire, food and beverages there. We will plow a runway again for our wheeled friends and drag a good ski plane surface. Door prizes as usual and we will cater Horseshoe Lake Inn for a lunch menu. (As always food is compliments of Trick Air Skis)

    If you are looking to come up on Friday and/or stay over on Saturday Big Sandy Lodge is the next lake over. There is a vintage snowmobile event in the area so call early.

    Here is a link to them:

    https://www.bigsandylodgeandresort.com/ their phone is 218-426-5040

    We will have snow and runway information as we get closer to the date. Not much ice yet, but we just got about 14 inches at the base and it should start making more ice with colder temps this week.

    Mogas is available on the lake at Horseshoe Lake Inn on the northeast corner of the lake.

    For advanced planning we are MN61 and we are about 8 miles NE of KHZX which has 100LL and tie downs.

    More news to come......

    Updates:

    We have a good chance of the lake setting up for operations by the 25th. I was there today (1/12) and we are close with a decent layer of ice over a thinning layer of slush. The long range forecast looks good with a typical high around 20 and a low of a few below in the area for the day. Dress warm as we are moving everything to the lake this year and will have some fires to warm the bones.

    It looks like it will be ice and patchy snow on the lake so please land and taxi with caution. We will sand the parking areas for the wheeled guys and possibly try to get some sand on the runway morning of. With the light snow cover on the lake we might not need to plow, so look for runway markings with the ski runway in its usual spot to the south of the main runway.

    Food is being ordered this week and we are getting the first of the door prizes in.
