    Northern MN Ski/Wheel Fly-in near KORB 12-18-21

    Short notice but I hope to see you there. We are having a ski fly-in on Moose Lake, near Orr, MN (KORB). The lake is located 5NM northwest of KORB and just east of Pelican Lake. Please note that the landing area will be on the ice and will be subject to Mother Nature. I will attach a flyer that has the physical address for those of you that would like to drive in and the coordinates for those of you that would like to fly. (I'm new to the forum so any help attaching this as a photo would be greatly appreciated.) We will have a bucket of chili and hotdogs / polishes and a fire plus a warming cabin. I hope to see as many of you there as we can!Fly-in.pdf

    Iíll do my best to show up one way or the other. As a side note Moose Lake is right next to where the old Bell Lake Fly in was held.

    Well the snow didnít hold off but at least itís not the wet heavy stuff. With 8 inches of ice things could work out nicely. Iíve currently got about seven inches of fluffy snow on Vermilion.

    There's about 9 inches of good ice as of today! Everything's looking good! There's 4-5 inches of snow on the lake with warm weather coming this week. Look forward to seeing everyone!

    UPDATE! Ice conditions are perfect! We have 12+ inches of good ice with very minimal snow on the lake. Wheel airplanes will be welcome along with skis! There's no slush and the ice surface has frozen with a texture. For those of you joining us, please use KORB radio frequencies and a left hand pattern over the lake! See you there!
