Frozen Fun

Lake becomes haven for winter sports

LAKE AREA- Buckeye Lake was a popular spot last weekend for winter sports enthusiasts from all over Ohio. ATV racers and ice sailors wove among ice anglers' tents as the crowded lake teemed with activity. With temperatures good and cold for many days, the ice was finally thick enough to support everyone and everything. The weekend prior, both an iceboat and an ATV broke through the surface. No injuries were reported. The iceboat was removed, but the ATV remains submerged somewhere in the frozen depths.
