Nokomis Ice Breaker and Picnic
The NLSC Ice Breaker will be held on Lake Nokomis on Sunday, May 21, 2017. Sailing/water activities will start at 10am and run until about 3PM. We’ll change boat crews every 30-45 minutes. Your hosts are John Schlagel and Marilynn Kaplan.
We will bring Suki Duki, our O’Day Javelin. Three sailboats would be ideal. Boat owners should meet at the launch at 9am to help each other set up and launch their boats. Be sure your boat, canoe, kayak, paddle board, etc. is completely clean in order to pass the DNR invasive species inspection.
There is lawn area for picnics next to the ramp. Bring a lawn chair, picnic lunch/snack, beverage, life vest (if you have one), and lawn games. There is also a quant concession stand and restrooms near the launch.
Parking on the street is mostly free, and there should be ample spaces available if you come early. The lot next to the launch has hourly parking meters. You may purchase a day parking sticker for the lot from Minneapolis Parks and Recreation.
For this event to take place, we need volunteers to trailer their small boats (under 23’) to Lake Nokomis. Gas motors must be lifted out of the water; electric motors and paddles are allowed in the water.
Please email Marilynn Kaplan if you can provide a boat for this fun event and/or you plan to attend.
