Mid West Wake Fest Announces Its Tentative Schedule for 2004
Ottawa, IL - July 16th-18th on the Illinois River
Our website (www.midwestwakefest.com) has undergone some changes for the 2004 season, so make sure you stop by there and check out all the hard work X-tian has done for us.
Tentative schedule for this years MWWF are:
Friday – July 16: Demo Day– Many of our sponsors will have boards, bindings and all the other goodies on hand for you to put to the test. Pay WWA insurance for the weekend and we will get you out riding. We are also working on pulling various marinas from the area together to throw out some tows behind their towboats.
Saturday– July 17: Social Day – The whole point behind MWWF is getting to meet other wakeboarders. The MWWF crew is hard at work on putting together the 2004 contests and clinics and we will keep you all informed when the details are worked out. Contests in the works will include the famous WakeFest Twilight Double Up Contest brought to you by Fly High.
Sunday – July 18: – Get up, shake off Saturday night, and ride till your arms fall off. We’re working on some Sunday morning demos, so keep checking back. There will also be a “Ladies Only Boat” shoving off in the morning. Please contact Annie at HardCOREcheetah@aol.com to reserve your spot or just to gather more details about it.
Don’t let that be your reason not to join in the fun of WakeFest. We will have a dock in the water. If you are riding stag or just looking for a different group of people to ride with, head out to the dock. WakeFest history has shown that there are plenty of great people riding in the Midwest that are willing to share their good fortune of having great rides. Of course, we don’t need to remind anyone to be courteous and take care of those who take care of you. “Respect Gets Respect”
The “Great” MWWF giveaway
If you were at the last two events you know what we mean when we say “Great”. Forrest and the rest of the crew have been working hard to get sponsors in place to make the 2004 event even better then last year.
Showing up early ? ? ? ? ?
While WakeFest won’t officially get underway till Friday, some of the Illinois River’s best riding is to be had on the weekdays. Four Star always has camping available and the WakeFest hotels will welcome you with open arms as well. So if three huge days of riding aren’t enough for you, get The Man’s foot off your neck and pack it up for Ottawa a couple days early. You won’t have much company, and you won’t be sorry.
