Hello Hobie 20 racers!
The 2010 Hobie 20 North American Championship is just under 30 days away! I am getting very excited to have some great racing happen in Storm Lake. There is a good list of competitors coming, and the winds in September are always very favorable.
If anyone has been on the fence about coming or not, I really urge you to make the decision to show up. Kings Pointe Resort, who is the host hotel for the event, has made us a great offer. If you call in to reserve a room, and tell them you are with the Hobie group, you will get a room rate of $75 per night. This is a steal, to stay at one of the newest, and nicest resorts in Iowa. The resort has a great restaurant inside it, exquisite rooms, and is literally less than a 2 minute walk to the regatta site.
If you have non-racing family members coming, there is an indoor waterpark that will be open during the event. There is also bicycle rentals right across the street, so they could ride the trails around the lake. These is playground equipment right on sight, as well as docks to fish or swim off of.
Camping is also available for those who wish to do so. The campgrounds are maybe a 5 minute walk to the regatta site. Make sure you call in and reserve a spot for the week, to make sure you have one!
If you have already booked a room at the resort prior to this deal, call in and let them know, and they will put you in the block of rooms with the others at the discount rate.
If anyone has any questions/comments/concerns, please feel free to e-mail or call myself or Andy Larson at any time. We want to make this a memorable event for everyone, and will do our best to answer your questions and help you out in any way we can (all contact information listed below).
Thank you, and we hope to see you in September!
