From the organizers: The ice-fishing derby still is and will be open for this weekend! We have NEVER cancelled it and never will UNLESS there is not enough ice on Schroon Lake of course. In an event if this were to ever happen, we would make sure to let everyone know. Otherwise, the derby is still open! Once again, there is still more than enough ice on Schroon Lake for fishing. See you all this weekend!
