|The Alder announced their initial plans for the new season. See just below, dated March 5, 2009|
|Commander Kevin Wirth expects to break out from the Alder’s winter moorings at their dock on Park Point at 8:30 on the morning of March 10th. They will also scout the offshore ice to determine thickness and coverage. They should return the next day, probably using the Superior entry again.|
|They will likely return to their moorings sometime later on Tuesday, March 10th. The first commercial shipping activity for the Twin Ports is expected to be the departure of the James R. Barker on March 29th.|
Season to begin with the Alder on March 10th and the James R. Barker on the 18th.
