Baie Des Ha!Ha! Closed.

Here is what I found:

To all the participants of the Québec cup or the 30th WISSA competition that will take place in Saguenay from the 26th of February to the 7th of March 2010.
On Friday February 19th, municipal and governmental authorities closed the Baie des Ha! Ha! for various considerations . All activity on the Baie des Ha !Ha ! has been prohibited including snowkite. Fortunately, the Saguenay-Lac-St-Jean offers many other excellent locations with amazing slidding conditions. All races will take place in different locations and all of the programmed activities will be maintained. For the moment to continue reserving your rooms at the hostels that were suggested. A bus service will be provided free of charge that will transport all competitors to the race sites. All activities will take place at the hostels as originally planned, and all information will circulate at these locations. We suggest that all competitors follow the evolution of the situation on our website and sign up to our newsletter. As of Tuesday new information will be posted on the website.

And here is the explanation:

Ice fishing is over on the Baie des Ha! Ha! this winter. Mild weather, the huge cracks in the ice and water on sites forced Fisheries and Oceans Canada to order the end of the season. The 1,400 cabins located in L'Anse-à-Benjamin and in the area of Great Bay had to be removed Monday. The operation began Saturday morning. The President of the Association of white peach of Great Bay, Richard Lavoie, had expressed doubts however about the possibility that all the cabins can be removed on Monday. He hoped that the ice bridges would take the blow. The municipal police of Saguenay has assigned additional officers this weekend in the Bay district. The fishing season was to end next March 12.

In the mean time start of a race in Russia (Zhigmore):
