To clarify the location, the Eastern, Canada and Mountain States are the hosts-not just the Eastern Region.

Title: Re: 2015 IDNIYRA Avoid LATE FEES!
Post by: KB [us5219] on December 25, 2014, 04:17:00 PM
This is a friendly reminder that one week from today begins "late registration" for the 2015 Gold Cup and North American Championships.  Register now to save on late fees.
Go to www.ice.idniyra.org to register and pay with PayPal.  Or you may register by mail but remember the registration must be RECEIVED by Jan. 1st (not postmarked).

Anyone who has trouble getting signed into the website please remember the sign in name is as follows: <first ame.lastname> (all lower case with a period instead of a space between).  If you request a new password use your username and NOT your email address.  And if that doesnt work contact me @ kbidniyra@gmail.com and I will try and help.

The 2015 NAC had to be cancelled today due to snow overnight with enough wind to make some large hard drifts that made the site at Kingston un-sailable. There were no other sites within a reasonable distance that could be used as backup.  On behalf of Eastern Regional Rear Commodore Eben Whitcomb and PRO John Atkins (who are on their way home) it is my understanding that the Kingston Yacht Club, its members and staff truly outdid themselves to help our class put on a world class event, Thank You KYC! 
  Best, Chad Atkins
