Volunteers Needed - LGYC members or Friends of LGYC  
It's an extravaganza - Join in the fun

We are a little over three weeks away from the start of the ILYA Championship Regatta and are still in need of many volunteers, equipment and housing.  To date, we have only filled 35% of the volunteer slots and 19% of our equipment and housing needs. This has been a monumental task for Lake Geneva to host over 650 of us each day. And you know sailors! So come down to watch the event while you volunteer - lots of you know how to work the waterfront at your own clubs. Drive a golf cart for a day, grill lunch for the hungry sailors.  
The success of this event is dependent on volunteers.  We need your help.  So if you haven't yet signed up, please do so as soon as possible.  It's a lot of fun and there's plenty of opportunities for family and friends.  Feel free to forward the links to anyone that might have an interest.  
Thank you to those members who have already signed up.  If possible, please take another look -- a few new slots have been added.  - The link is on the top left of Scowlines. It will be there with every edition until the conclusion of the regatta.

North Lake's Annual Pram Power Regatta is Thursday, August 3rd  
What is Pram Power?

  • A fun regatta geared toward beginner sailors that are new (or newish) to regattas.
  • Coaches from North Lake and other sailing schools cooperate to assist sailors as needed -- a great environment for learning!
  • The sailors will be divided into junior and senior fleets that will sail at different times, allowing sharing of boats.
  • How do we fill the down time?  With crafts!!!  Sailors and siblings are invited to do shrinky dinks, decorate t-shirts, etc.  (Included for registered sailors and available for purchase for siblings.)
  • Please bring a 100% cotton white t-shirt to decorate as one of your crafts.
  • We'll have a raffle for cool sailing gear and more!
  • Lunch will be homemade tacos, fruit, and cookies.  Delicious.
Don't miss out, August 3rd is less than 2 weeks away!  We are pleased to be offering on-line registration and payment this year.  Registration and regatta information can be found here:

Not professional - but some excellent shots
One of the advantages of race committee work on the signal boat is the proximity to the sailors. While the front of the boat is busy with finishes and recordings, often the boat driver has the opportunity and inclination to take photos. So while the camera belongs to the signal boat captain, the drivers should get the credit. So thanks to Herb Rasmussen for WI MC Champs, Bob Fiedler for WYA X, Dale Roble for MC Invite and Herb Rasmussen again for Quad Lakes --- or did someone else take WI MC Champs --- it's all a blur but hope the photos are not. Get ready to take some time. Turns out signal takes 400+ photos a day. While we try to get front to back of the fleet, RC work gets in the way - setting finish lines, covering for markset when a change in course is considered or implemented. Enjoy. ------- Candace Porter
