Welcome to Fire On Ice 2017!
Fire on Ice is back! Thank you to all those that called or emailed your support for this unique contest. You kept the ‘fire’ going, and we are happy to announce that the world famous Fire on Ice Barbecue World Championship will be held at our NEW host resort, Izatys Resort, in Onamia, MN on March 3rd & 4th, 2017 on Mille Lakes Lake!
Fire on Ice continues to grow each year, and Izatys Resort will allow for expansion of our activities in the short and long-terms. The additional space and on-site accommodations allow for more concurrent activities during the contest. We will be able to offer land-based cooking sites for those that do not want to venture out on the ice and sites out on the lake for the Fire on Ice purists.
All the contest related information can be found in the Contest Details section of the website, from basic contest information to lodging and team applications.
We are looking forward to greatest contest on ice! The weather has turned cold and ice is being made, so all good things will come together on March 3rd! Hope to see you on the ice!
New Events for 2017!
We have a little bit of a late start getting going this year, but we have some fun things planned for Fire on Ice. There are quite a few new options available this year to pass time, including ice skating around the marina (or bbq team running relays??? hmmmm), cross country and snow mobile trails (assuming there will be good snow), shuttles to/from Grand Casino, an indoor pool and outdoor hot tub. We are planning outdoor gathering spots such as a warming tent and bar along with games and things to do! Stay tuned for current developments as we finalize our plans. The upstairs bar, restaurant and ballroom will provide ample indoor gathering space to keep warm and catch up with friends!
Thank You Appeldoorns!!
We would like to thank Appeldoorn’s Sunset Bay resort for hosting Fire on Ice in the previous years. You have helped to create a lot of great contest memories that will last a lifetime (and some that should stay out on the ice)! Thanks again!
