Musterfield Farm Ice Day- January 23, 2011

9 am ~ 'til the ice is in (2 pm)

Ice Day will be held Sunday, January 23 at Kezar Lake's Horse Beach in North Sutton. Cutting the 200-pound blocks of ice from the lake gets underway at 9 a.m. and continues until the Watters Ice House, just up the road at Muster Field Farm, is filled. The ice is packed in sawdust and will be put to use in August during Farm Days (less than 15% is lost in the intervening six months). Hot soups and snacks are served in the Ryder Schoolhouse, next to the ice house. Free admission (donations appreciated). Rain date: January 30.

Begin the day at the annual pancake breakfast, sponsored by the Sutton Historical Society in North Sutton's Free Will Baptist Church, from 7:00 to 10:00 a.m. All you can eat, plain or blueberry pancakes, local maple syrup, sausage,  orange juice, coffee, tea, and hot chocolate. $5.00 for adults, $2.50 for kids. A $1.00 discount if you come by snowmobile, x-c skis or snowshoes. Rain date: January 30.

In addition, the Sutton Ridgerunners will stage an Ice Day ride-in for all area snowmobilers, gathering at Horse Beach. And Pete Lauridsen and friends will display their antique cars converted to snowmobiles. Rain date: January 30.
