Midwest Militia's May Demo Days 2008
May 16-18
The Busted Prop
948 East Main St
Ottawa, IL - On the Illinois River

The official kick off of the wakeboarding season in the Midwest is just around the corner! The lakes are thawing; the rivers are begging to be shredded and it's time for you to try out some new gear for 2008!

Midwest Militia, along with a slammed list of sponsors, is once again teaming up to give you the opportunity to ride before you buy your latest set up or wake boat. As in years past, the Busted Prop in Ottawa, Illinois will play host to Midwest Militia's May Demo on May 17th and 18th. The site sits on a back channel of the Illinois River and there are miles and miles of flat water riding in either direction from the site.

Local pro shops, including Liquid Sports Online, will be offering the latest gear from Ronix, Gator, Liquid Force, Slingshot and more to demo. They will also have a full line of gear and accessories from all the top brands like O'neill, Helium, Rip Curl, Oakley, CIRE Boardshorts, Central Clothing Company and others for you to check out.

No Boat? No problem! Local dealers and top manufacturers will have the latest models on hand for you to demo. Check out the new Supra 21V courtesy of Ultimate Wake Watersports at Chicago Sea Ray, the latest X-Star from Chicago Mastercraft, the newest Nautiques from Dockside Marine and recently added, the new MB Sports Tomcat, courtesy of MB Boats and

Once you are tired of demo-ing boats and gear stop by the Midwest Militia Booth For so Sobe No Fear Energy Drink, because we will have plenty on hand for the participants!

There is no event anywhere in the Midwest that will allow you to check out all that's new in wake in one spot, for one weekend. But that's not all! You can't go to a Midwest Militia event and not get excited about a Midwest Militia Style Party at the Busted! Get ready for a gear raffle, DJ, dancing and the usual slew of random contests and games that tend to get organized as the evening progresses.

On site boat/RV parking and tent camping (fees apply) are available. There are also hotels within a few miles of the site for families or those that might be looking for a more mellow evening. Camping charges also cover your use of the onsite boat launch. Public launches are also available close by.

Stay tuned to for continued updates as the event draws closer. If you need further information or would like to contact us, please do so at
