Come See Mary B  
Frozen Assets Festival at Edgewater - Februsry 5-7 
The Four Lakes Ice Yacht Club of Madison is bringing the famous Mary B ice yacht back to Madison. On Friday, February 5th through Sunday, February 7th, the public will be able to see the huge vintage ice yacht at Clean Lakes Alliance's annual Frozen Assets Festival. Hosted by the Edgewater, the festival will run from 10 am to 3 pm daily.
The Mary B ice yacht was built in Madison by builders Frank Tetzlaff and Carl Bernard and raced on area lakes since 1947. The Mary B has the most wins in its fleet of class A stern steerers, the largest ice yachts in the world. She is referred to as the Queen of the Ice. An all-wood boat over 40 feet long, 40 feet tall, and weighing over a ton, she is built of the best wood available and is beautiful to see standing still or moving along at high speeds.
The Four Lakes Iceboat Club plans to show AND race the Mary B. The club has incorporated the ice yacht as a nonprofit organization and will be seeking donations to help with annual regattas and showing the Mary B at winter events.
If you wish to donate, please contact the club at iceboat.org, or visit the Clean Lakes Alliance website at cleanlakesalliance.com. The club will also accept donations at the Frozen Assets Festival at the Edgewater in February.
US Sailing Judges Course --- It's for you!!   
Pewaukee in Two Weeks
One of the ILYA and US Sailing's goals is to have at least one qualified US Sailing Club Judge at each inland club.  While this is a tall order, we need to start by training willing candidates.  This course offers a hands on approach through class room, roleplaying, and study of actual hearings.  It is well worth the fee and the lunch the PYC will serve will make it all worth the trip and your time.
Who should attend this course? 
You! This is not a course to make you a rules guru. You do not need full understanding of the intricacies of the Racing Rules of Sailing. This is about learning the process of protests. Many folks of all levels of sailing proficiency took the course last year. They all came away with an appreciation for running a protest meeting. Remember, protest committees are usually comprised of three individuals. You all bring differing knowledge and understanding to the hearing. Now is the time to start to feel comfortable volunteering as a judge in that hearing. Bruce Martinson is expert but brings teaching down to all levels. He makes it seem straightforward. There were nothing but kudos from last years' courses east and west.
