Zehnder's Snow Fest and Ice Carving competition 2014

Lets shoot ice carving and snow sculpture competition in beautiful Frankenmuth.
This is world class snow sculptures with the national collegiate ice carving championships being held there as well.
We can arrive late morning / mid afternoon to capture activities and frozen art. Then finish up the day with a fireworks display and a world famous chicken dinner.

    Its going to be a cold party I'll be there by noon cant miss me have on yellow coat

  • Tom C.

    I'll be there tomorrow at noon. I have a lot of interest in the frieworks at 6:45 so I may leave and come back for that. Would love to connect with anyone from the group that makes the drive. our local forcast is that the temps start at 13* and move to 20* as long as the wind is down we should be okay. the snow moving through tonight might be an issue. I've been to 4 previous Ice festivals in Frankenmuth - my cell #[masked]

    Thomas, unfortunately, I won't be there. The lens I would have used most jammed and has to be repaired. (Are there any local places that repair Nikon lenses? The estimate I got is $200, which seems high to me. It's not even two years old, and I can't imagine what caused the problem.)

    • Sandy L.

      Thanks - I'll call them. And I might end up with a telephoto lens I can use for Saturday.

    Hi guys...
    A couple of things,remember to charge your batteries tonight the cold takes the life out of them real fast,bring an extra battery if you have one. Also bring a polarizer to reduce glare in the ice. A tripod will help but might get in the way of spectators.
    Dress warm and in layers and hand warmers are a big plus.
    my phone number is[masked]
    thanx

    I have attended it in years past and always a good time. With the cold weather, having ice should not be a problem.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
