Sturgeon Stampede Wrap-up Report:
Friday: Best wind day, upper teens, gusting mid 20s.
About 15 kiters showed up and about half participated in the events.
We had 2 kiter-cross races and Bob Cook dominated and took 1st place in skier division (he also dominated all snowboarders to be 1st overall)
Dan Deuster took 1st place honors in the snowboard division.
Yours truly, finished a respectable 8th place out of 8 racers
Big Air contest was won by Jens (sorry don`t know your last name), with a jump of unknown height. looked 15-20ft from where I was.
Saturday: This was the weak wind day.
About 5 kiters rode for 30 minutes when the wind gusted up for a while
Other activities went on as usual, beer, food, music, games, bonfire, fireworks, and yes we did eat a few minnows.
Who would`t want to party with these girls?
Sunday: Another good wind day, low to mid teens all afternoon.
We had the long distance race, all the way to Sunset Shores and back, approx 10 miles round trip
Dalius (sorry don`t know your last name, or how to spell your first) took 1st place in ski division and also outdid all snowboarders.
Ed Schneider took 1st place in the snowboard division.
Congrats to all winners and participants.
As most of you know, this is a fund raiser for the WAK club, and every dollar made goes to making kiteboarding better in the Lake Winnebago area
Thanks again and see you next year.
Sturgeon Stampede is always the 2nd weekend in February.
