DICK ROSE ON RULES AND FLEETS ON PROMOTION-- IT'S NOT TO BE MISSED--- FEBRUARY 6-8, 2009 

Dick RoseIt's time to review the new rule book. A three-boat length circle and a few changes in the "burden of proof" area. Who better than our good friend  Dick Rose to teach us. His methodical and easy style of presentation will make it all clear. And there is time to discuss also. Join us on Saturday, February 7 for your fleet meeting and then lunch. Dick Rose will begin his presentation at lunch and continue on for a double session in the afternoon.     
 
   The Winter Inland will be held February 6-8 at Olympia Resort and Spa, Oconomowoc, Wisconsin. Activities begin on Friday afternoon at 4:00 with an open meeting of the Promotion Committee. Everyone is invited, especially fleet committee members. This is followed by meetings of the junior fleets. Look for another discussion of the ever compressed junior regatta schedule. A cocktail reception follows.
     Saturday features adult fleet meetings, delegates meeting, awards luncheon, special presentations on the new racing rules by Dick Rose of Sailing World, and numerous informative roundtable discussions on a variety of topics. A cocktail reception follows!
    For those of your Board members who want other interest areas, we will repeat the lake issues forum and bar management.The ILYA Board of Directors and Rules Committee meet jointly on Sunday morning.
