Re: 2018 Sturgeon Stampede Winter Snowkiting

Out snowkiting today at the Stugeon Stampede event site in light winds. Snow conditions were good. Mostly 4-8 inches with some skinny 1-2 inch patches here and there. Wind forcast for the weekend not too good, but it always blows enough to ride out on the big lake. Hope to see some of you this weeke...

I'm interested in all the items you have. I can probably arrange pickup, instead of shipping, if that works for you.
Let me know when you can.
Thanks,

Re: Sturgeon Stampede Kiteboarding Event

16+ inches of ice at the event site.
Lake Geneva is a really deep lake and freezes much later than a shallow lake (Lake Winnebago).
WAK shacks are already on the ice.
Generally 12inches of ice to support a car.
Probably 4-6 inches of snow on the ice.
Just add wind and you won`t want to miss it.

Get your BROKITE snow board out and bring it to the Sturgeon Stampede next weekend. You`ll have a good time. Just got back from a BROKITE promotion t...

Re: Stampede this year?

I didn't know it was an annual thing, because I saw the World Ice and Snow Sailing Championship that was here last year is now in Estonia. I will have to come up and check it out! Ben, one of our WAK buddies in Fond du Lac left for Estonia today. He said the event was moved from a bay on the Baltic...

Yes, the Stampede is ON. The dates are correct. Go to WAKkiteboarding.com for more info. When I get back on Sat, I`ll post more details. Should be another minnow eating good time. Live music on the ice, fireworks, probably a beer or ten and plenty of kiting. Thanks for starting the ball rolling Dutc...

Re: Sturgeon Stampede hosts World Ice/Snow Sailing Champions

Just got back from helping set-up for the event. Both WAK shacks have been deployed. Ice bars have been built. And the big tent went up yesterday. So much going on: all disciplines of ice/snow racing and freestyle, fat tire race, adventure obstacle run, and so much more. Wind or no wind, things will...

I`m a Zion boy also.
I`ll be at the nature center launch about 9 or 10 am.

Re: KEEGS SUNDAY Jun-15

For anyone else that forgot to wear their flea and tick collar today a Waukegan, be sure to do a thorough tick check.
I found one at my hair line on the back of my neck when I got home.
Check your scalp, arm pits, and private parts.
That`s where they like to borough in..
Otherwise, great kiting.
