Re: I have the need to STAMPEDE / $1500 purse

The long distance dash for cash is officially switched to Sunday! Skippers meeting at noon! Icey so sharpen your edges! If we get enough wind today, we might organize some course racing. Lots of fun on the ice anyways!

Re: Sturgeon Stampede Kiteboarding Event

So the wind isn't going to be very friendly today. We will be doing most of our competitions on Sunday. If we happen to get enough wind and we have enough competitors today, maybe we can organize a race today. Just looks like better wind and warmer on Sunday. The WAK will be out on the lake today an...

Re: Sturgeon Stampede Kiteboarding Event

So the wind looks pretty lite the next couple of days. Believe me, the conditions are hard, icey and fast with not much snow. It is rideable, but it is especially chattery on the board. Skiis aren't nearly as bad. We are shooting for racing Saturday. Big air might be questionable. Anyways, we will b...

Re: World Ice and Snow Sailing Championships/Sturgeon Stampe

Um, I guess you could if you really wanted to. Many of the local hotels are offering deals for the riders. The Retlaw Hotel in downtown Fond du Lac has a $59/night deal with free breakfast each day.

Re: World Ice and Snow Sailing Championships/Sturgeon Stampe

We have one of the WAK shacks out on the lake at the event site. Nothing like having a heated shelter on the lake to change in and to have a few beers in after riding. New site this year to move it closer to Fond du Lac. Should help to get more spectators and it will be easy to shuttle the riders ba...

Re: 25th Annual Sturgeon Stampede, Feb. 7-9

Had some good riding again yesterday. Plenty of wind! We had a good amount of riders on kites and kitewings, so we organized a couple of races and even a big air. Wind forecast for today is not very good, but we will still be out at the event site messing around and partying. If we can get good wind...

Re: 25th Annual Sturgeon Stampede, Feb. 7-9

Hope everyone is enjoying this cold winter so far! Riding has been pretty good around here. WAK shack has been on the lake for about a month now. Nice to have that warm shack to escape to between sessions! We are already in early setup mode for the Stampede coming up next weekend! Everything is look...

Re: 2013 Kiteboarding Event, Fond du Lac,WI Feb. 8-10

Hey Stampeders! We got great snow last night with the storm that blew through yesterday. We probably have 4-6" everywhere. The road is plowed out to the stampede site. We got 14-16"of ice! There are two bridges you have to cross on your way out to the site, but they aren't a big deal. Looks like 10-...

Re: 2013 Kiteboarding Event, Fond du Lac,WI Feb. 8-10

Current update on conditions for the Stampede: We got the WAK shak out on the lake early last week. We had 14" of ice right at the site. We also built 3 ramps already. We rode several days last week. I rode Sunday and it was a little blown off in the middle of the lake with bands of snow here and t...

Re: 2012 Sturgeon Stampede, Winter Kiteboarding Event

Sorry for the delay, but I came down with a nasty flu and a sinus infection from the weekend out at the Stampede last weekend. Last weekend the conditions were challenging all weekend, but the fun wasn't. Thanks to all of you who attended and participated in the fun. Let's hope the wind and snow god...
