    2014 Eiskahana?

    Anyone know if the Eiskahana on Georgetown lake is scheduled for this year? Found a spare set of fuchs and and mounted some skinnyish studded Nokians so I'm ready to hit the ice!

    Here are the details:

    Eiskhana: the slickest event of the year

    Location: Georgetown Lake
    Saturday, January 18

    8:00 AM Registration at the lake
    9:00 AM start lunch in Idaho Springs

    What? Drive on a lake? Are you crazy? Perhaps crazy like a fox advancing your driving skills on a frozen lake!

    Eiskhana, the slickest event of the year, is a fun way to enjoy the unique experience of driving on ice! This is a great opportunity to test your car, your tires, and your skills.
    The Jan. 18th event will be run like an autocross; ”cone chasing” will be required when you are not driving. Since January in Georgetown is cold and often windy, plan to dress in layers and wear warm boots, hats and gloves. Runs will be timed for purposes of bragging rights.

    Porsches are desired but not required—feel free to bring your winter driver with snow tires or studded tires. No pre-tech will be required and there will be no top-tech on site, but we highly recommend de-cluttering your car before you drive. Since speeds and g-forces are low, we will not be wearing helmets. Restroom facilities will be available, but there will be no concessions or refreshments provided. There is no preregistration; just show up that morning, register, pay with cash or a check, then drive your car and help out with the event.

    Hint from the school of (literal) hard knocks: The ice on Georgetown Lake is very slippery and hard. Walking can be hazardous. Wearing ice grippers on your feet will help you stay upright, and upright is good
