2015 Inland Championship — A Perfect Day
23 August 2015
As published by Scowlines - We should always be as proud as last night when David Perrigo of UBS magnificently honored our Legends and Heroes. With most thoughtful vignettes of each individual's contributions to the sport and the ILYA, David's love for these icons shown brilliantly.
We are blessed, indeed, to be surrounded by such quality individuals. UBS shown brightly last night as they set the tone for sponsors for our fortunate organization.
The view from inside - 700+ on the site and no one felt crowded. Imagine what the future holds for this facility named after our true legend, Buddy Melges.
ON TO THE SAILING:
Near perfection as all fleets hit the water. New race winners were awarded the day's trophies at the evening extravaganza.

THE E SCOWS
I 9 Peter Strothman
Chad Hillyer from Tom's River took the second race. Nice to have our New Jersey folks here. We miss you, Russ Lucas.
The A SCOWS
There's only one show in town - M21. It's the Pat Hughes boat with Chris Jewett at the helm. It is a mix of Minnetonka and Geneva - a Melges, a strong dose of Porters and the Jewett brothers.
Thanks to Kloe Kiekhafer and Sue Weston, along with our perennial top notch photographer Larry Kmiecik
