Questionable ice conditions did not stop the University of Okoboji Winter Games from hosting a fun-filled weekend Jan. 27-19 in the Iowa Great Lakes. A handful of events were cancelled and a few more were relocated because warm temperatures earlier this winter created unsafe ice conditions on Smith’s Bay – the usual location for most of the festivities. Most of the favored events still found their crowds of participants, including the Chili Cookoff, ArtsLIVE People Project, Chocolate Classic, flag football, broom ball and of course, the Polar Plunge.
