Given the current weather conditions and forecast, at this time I do not intend to offer any groomed terrain for teams to practice on for Wednesday, February 17.  Freeze up is not going to occur until later Wednesday afternoon at the earliest. 
 
There will be groomed terrain Thursday morning for training, and I expect the race course will be available as such at the start of the day.
