The gang at Kalajoki, Finland, 2013
Hello WISSA Friends
At this time of year you are most likely hoping for reliable ice and good winds. It soon will happen. In fact, the WISSA-competition site for 2015 in Wisconsin, USA is already frozen.
William Tuthill and a few other WISSA-members (including myself) have been working with the organizing committee in Fond du Lac for almost a year. Back in February we even tested the competition site on Lake Winnebago and also made sure the required infrastructure and competence for running the races are in place. Over the past few months the organizers have done a truly impressive job preparing for the event. They deserve our praise and admiration. Between February 9-14, 2015 they also deserve success.
Lake Winnebago is located about 250 km north of Chicago. The Lake gets very thick ice as well as clean winds (the shore has wind generator installations). Equally important, we have been receiving solid support from the host community of Fond du Lac, Wisconsin from the very beginning. We are also blessed to have motivated and experienced people in place to conduct the races. In my judgment, WISSA-2015 has the potential to turn into one of the best world championships ever.
David, I am very much looking forward to seeing you and your team members at the start line next year. Also, please encouraging everyone you know to pre-register at wissa2015.com/registration.
Greetings and kind regards from Lake Ontario,
