Midwest Militia Announces 3 Events for 2005
Midwest Milita Press Release

Spring is finally here, and it’s been a long cold Winter here in the Midwest, but the Midwest Militia never loses the wakeboarding itch; we don’t stop thinking of ways to make the most of YOUR riding season. That’s why we’re proud to announce the most complete event series anywhere in the Midwest!

This isn’t your average competition series where you sit all day waiting for your 5 minutes of glory behind the boat. These are multiple day wakeboarding festivals designed to be non-stop fun in the sun for every riding level and every age (‘till the sun goes down anyway). Whether you like to free ride, compare your riding skills to the Midwest’s best, or just enjoy meeting other wakeboarders and boaters, you need to mark your calendars now! The Midwest Militia (along with the very best pro shops, dealers and manufacturers in the industry) is bringing three separate events to the Chicago land area in 2005!

EVENT #1 – Right around the Corner!
May 13th-15th, 2005
May Demo Days
The Busted Prop on the Illinois River (Ottawa, IL)
This is the 2nd annual May Demo Days, designed to get you on the water and try out the latest products. There will be 2005 boats, boards, skates and skis for you to test, ride and drive. The main event will be a 15 rider double up contest on Saturday, May 14. Contact the Militia at to get signed up. Hurry, the spots will fill up fast!

August 12th-14th
Midwest Militia’s 4th Annual Boot Camp Wakeboard Festival
The Busted Prop on the Illinois River (Ottawa, IL)
The 4th annual Boot Camp is back, and guaranteed to be one of the biggest and best wakeboarding festival ANYWHERE in the Midwest. If you were there last year, you saw pro riders Nick and Julz Heaney hang and ride all weekend, and this year you will no doubt see more pros in action. Wakeboarders travel from all over the area and beyond to ride, camp, compete and meet the best in the Midwest. Good times, new friends, and great riding is what Boot Camp is all about.

September 30-October 2
Fall Fallout ‘05
The Busted Prop on the Illinois River (Ottawa, IL)
Back by popular demand, Midwest Militia presents Fall Fallout ’05! This is the season finale that brings all the premier riders together for one last chance to gain respect as a top rider. 15 riders will have the opportunity to showcase their best tricks for the crowd and judges. There will be tons of free riding, lots of giveaways, cash prizes and enough memories to last through the winter.
