Our youth gather here as well as all our volunteers who receive complimentary lunches from Craig. Craig Parker from Cedar Lake, Indiana, manages the grill. He donates all the extras and some of the mainstay protein served each day.  
Thanks to Lake Geneva Country Meats for its donation of hamburgers and brats. 
The Vorpagel Family has supported us for three years now by supplying the freshest of meats. The store is located on Hwy 50 east of Lake Geneva and is well worth a visit if you are in the area - meats, seafood and wine. What more could you want? Folks in the Geneva Lake area are familiar with the quality meat and visit often.

You may purchase these lunches alone for the week - Thursday through Sunday each day. Toothpicks is located in East Troy but serves the Southern Lakes area.

They serve in your home, have Wednesday evening take out meals and cater larger events. Look for them on Facebook.

Their family has generated commodores of the Cedar Lake YC, an ILYA measurer (through marriage), a National C scow treasurer and ILYA Women's and Girls Clinic Chairs. Thanks to the Eckerts, Ralph and Jack, who started it all and were awarded an ILYA Member of the Year Award at the beginning of that trophy's life.  
Saturday Night US Sailing Night of Champions Dinner
The ILYA has long treasured its membership and involvement with US Sailing, our governing body. We have served on its committees, piloted some of its programs and rules changes and still participate in many of its championships and programs. Simply said, they are a partner who leads each club, each sailor and each class. If you are not a member, JOIN NOW! You are supporting the folks who lead, protect, change the sport of US sailing. They work to teach our race committee, our coaches, our rule-abiding sailors and our youth through conferences, classes and committee work. This sport in the US does not exist without their operation. Of note to our fortunate organization, US Sailing supports and sustains Olympic sailing and the ILYA has been blessed to have our youthful sailors (and perhaps not so youthful) benefit from the Olympic support. US Sailing will have a presence on our grounds and on the water as the chair of the Rules Committee John Strassman will serve. He is a local resource with national recognition. We are fortunate to benefit from his knowledge and instruction. 
The night's dinner will be catered by Lake Geneva's Celebrations. Menu to follow in later editions. They serve fresh, locally-procured food. Music and partying await as you all return to the same revelry of the last two years. 
To order your social package, lunches or evening meals, visit here. Order from storefront or with your boat registration. You can edit or add new orders at any time. DEADLINE FOR FOOD ORDERS IS AUGUST 9th.Offerings may close at that time if quantities are limited. 
US Sailing - Saturday Night at the ILYA Championships  
Safety at Sea
Ever wonder what you would do if someone fell overboard from your boat? Do you have a plan to deal with heavy weather if you can't reach a safe harbor? Interested in selecting the right emergency communications equipment or storm sails, but you're not sure what to buy? US Sailing's Safety at Sea seminars are designed for sailors of all types and levels - cruisers and racers, novices and experts. Appropriate for a wide range of boats - small, big, monohulls, multihulls (and powerboats, too) - that are sailed anywhere - near shore and offshore. Curriculum is certified by US Sailing, with special attention to conditions and challenges of the host organization's sailing area. More than 1,000 sailors attend safety courses around North America every year and many bring their families and crews. Interested in attending? Interested in your club hosting? Find out more here: http://www.ussailing.org/education/safety-at-sea/
US Sailing is proud to support the ILYA and host this year's Saturday night Big Inland party. So break out your FAVORITE TROPICAL ATTIRE and get ready to #FINDTHEFUN Saturday night, August 19th at the Lake Geneva Yacht Club. In honor of this sponsorship, US Sailing will be offering current ILYA members a custom gift the night of the event if you join or renew with US Sailing anytime between now and the party.

Consider volunteering
There are no cars permitted on the property nor any launching of motorboats from the LGYC site during the event. It's a ballet getting all the boats in and out for two sailing sessions. But off-site parking is available at Jerry's Majestic Marine, N1599 Maple Ridge Rd, Lake Geneva, WI 53147. This is near Reek School which many of you remember as trailer parking from years ago. A shuttle runs regularly from that site. Volunteering is easy and gets you full access to the site. 

In particular we are in need of parking lot greeters (smiling faces), parking coordinators (people who can stay within the lines), shuttle bus drivers (just think of yourself as a tour guide), shuttle boat drivers to the mooring sites (good water skills) and tractor drivers (good skills in reverse but didn't you always want to drive one of those?). The volunteers are utilized Wednesday through Sunday. Use the volunteer sign up app in the upper left of Scowlines. Watch each day for needs. 

Pay --- a red shirt and a lunch. Competitive wages for a regatta! 
Special Seating  
There is limited, reserved seating in the restaurant area of the Lake Geneva Yacht Club. Due to the use of caterers for the event, the restaurant will not be open for regular table service for the Fri and Sat events. IF you want to make a donation to the event, (donation to the ILYA), need a guaranteed seat for your team or your special needs or special friends, visit the storefront for reserved seating. Signage will mark the table as yours for the event - other than Bilge Pullers. (and you can beg AJ for your seating there - he's the man in charge)
Thanks to Gill as our official and exclusive softgoods dealer 


Here is a sampling of goods on sale at the event. Look for other Gill and Line Honor products lakeside Wednesday through Sunday. 
Never Too late 
 If anyone is inclined to contribute to the festivities, sponsorship money will now be applied to the lighter after-race fare which might benefit the youth who often go offsite to eat and return for the later evening revelry or the race committee who volunteer for the four-day event. Your name will be included as a sponsor. ContactDavid Perrigo to offer your support.
