This is the first official press release for Mid West Wake Fest 2005. Our website (www.midwestwakefest.com) will be undergoing some updating for the 2005 season, but currently has the MWWF 2004 information if you want to stop by and check out last years pictures and details.
Tentative schedule for this years MWWF are:
Friday – July 15: 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 16: Social Day – The whole point behind MWWF is getting to meet other wakeboarders. The MWWF crew is hard at work on putting together the 2005 contests and clinics and we will keep you all informed when the details are worked out. Contests in the works will include the famous MWWF Twilight Double Up Contest brought to you by Krown Wakeboards and Nautiques.
Sunday – July 17:
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 Wake Fest. 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. Wake Fest 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 three 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 2005 event even better then last year.
Showing up early ? ? ? ? ?
While Mid West Wake Fest 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 Wake Fest 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.
