Juha Mannermaa at Val Brilliant 2008

Juha Mannermaa at Val Brilliant ~ Lac Matapedia, Quebec WISSA 2008
 The organizers of WISSA 2015 have offered  one free  night of accommodation and breakfast to a few folks to register now on
 The offer was for "the next 10 registrants" but that was 3 days ago, and I know one who has already registered to get the savings.

 The Retlaw Plaza Hotel has offered VERY favorable rates to WISSA participants. Here is a link to their site

The team in Fond du Lac is really working hard to welcome WISSA racers.

One-hour Drive

It is a short drive from Milwaukee to Fond du Lac! [about an hour's drive]

For that matter it is only about another 1.5 hours drive to get to Fond du Lac from the great city of Chicago. There are direct flights from Helsinki to Chicago.

 The organizing team for WISSA 2015  has been hard at work preparing for our arrival this February 9-14 2015---MARK YOUR CALENDARS!!!

Get ready for big winds, and BIG ice!!!

There will be a king sized Short Track Slalom course along with the world's best race master for STS- Ri├žards Leipens of Riga, Latvia.

There will be  lots of Hiberna boards , Kitewings, and Kites of all kinds.

Kite sailors take notice! The Winnebago Area Kiters  [WAK] have been organizing and racing on Lake Winnebago for over 2 decades. They know how to run races! They also have set up a really cool course with jumps for freestyle. 

 Read the Notice of Race for specifics, but GET READY!!! Winter is coming, and WISSA 2015 will be the centerpiece to your winter!

 See you on the ice
 WISSA, The City of Fond du Lac, and all of the fine folks on the WISSA 2015 organizing committee
