OKOBOJI READY FOR CHAMPS

'Boji greeted the E's, MC's and M-16s for a three-day regatta.Regatta chair Steve Avery was up a tree, literally, setting up games for tonight's party. Phil Petersen had the race committee organized to the 'nth degree providing housing and equipment for a three-course event.
 
The E's will feature 30 of the Midwest's best . PJ Friend arrived after a Madison accident. Fritz Ruf was "johnny on the spot" driving a replacement trailer to allow the team to continue on its way after being sideswiped. All are safe. We will miss Jack Strothman who cancelled due to illness.
 
The MC fleet will boast 41 boats with a strong home lake presence. Ten  juniors have taken advantage of the ILYA half-price registration.
 
The M-16s will register this morning.
 
The volunteers were plentiful. Lunches are a reasonable $6 and the after race parties are free. 
 
If you are considering the C fleet, I-20 or A Open, register today. Okoboji is ready and value-packed as always.The weather is perfect, Arnold's Park looks as inviting as ever.
