Due to unforeseen circumstances, the Bob VanOver Memorial Regatta has been canceled due to site conditions. From all the rain that the mid-west has received over the past couple weeks, the ground is too soft to try and risk getting trailers stuck down by the water. We have been closely monitoring the situation over the past couple of days and this has been a very difficult decision to make. The race committee had a meeting with the parks department early this morning and we do plan on coming back next year around the same time. Again, we apologize to anyone who was already packed up and ready to go but we wanted to give ourselves as much time as possible before we made this difficult decision. We look forward to seeing all the racers from other regions next year and we will see our IOA members at our annual awards banquet on November 10th. Thank you all for the understanding.
