Reservations DUE 

The deadline is nearing for reservation for dorm stays for the late June regatta. Please contact us now for a lakeshore room.Thanks to the UW-Madison Hoofers, the '08 ILYA Youth Champs will truly be a collegiate experience. The Lakeshore Dorm system will house our pre-registered sailors for the value price of $15. The immediate caveat is a required 20 reservations registered with the University by May 15th. There will be a female and male chaperone in the dorm. The event falls on one of many warm, inviting Madison weekends on the lake near the Union. Boats and cars will be stored at the Hoofers site and near the dorm. A short five-minute walk down the Lakeshore will bring the competitors to the homebase Hoofers site near Memorial Union.
 
The Hoofers are excited about this opportunity as it provides a practice run for the 2010 Collegiate Nationals at UW-Madison where the nation's best will meet. This is our first recent use of the University's dorm system for housing.
