There WILL be online registration available.  Its not up yet, because I am trying to make sure I don't make any mistakes. Embarrassed  Contrary to popular belief, I am not a web-guy, and it takes me double or triple the time of a qualified individual to make things happen. 
I was hoping to have it up at the same time the next Runner Tracks is released.

Facebook is not the official notice board for the 2016 NA's.

This is Kent Bakers post:
Quote
The hotline page is the official notification center for the 2016 DN North American Championships.
Please bookmark https://ice.idniyra.org/hotline in your smart phone, tablet or computer.

Additionally, we will try when possible to give a BREIF summary update on the hotline (810)328-3660 or 810 FAT DN 60.
Lengthy specifics, such as hotel information will likely not be available on the hotline due to short recording periods.

Facebook is not the official medium for informing competitors, but may be used to inform or entertain the public.

Please bear in mind if travel takes us through Canada or remote locations, cellular or internet connections will be sparse.

The next notification will be on or before Wednesday evening 2/17/2016 @ 10:00 PM

2016 North American DN championship

We currently have a handful of potential sites throughout northern Michigan and Wisconsin under consideration.
Due to future weather considerations the Call for a location of our upcoming Regatta will be delayed until Thursday evening as conditions will be changing rapidly.

Reposted from The Hotline on ice.idniyra.org where you will find all official information.

https://ice.idniyra.org/hotline

To help with those attempting to get a head start (like those Nova Scotians), I wish to give an update that as of this time the following locations have NOT BEEN RULED OUT:

Mallets Bay, Lake Champlain
Grand Traverse Region of Michigan
Wisconsin
Thunder Bay, Canada

That is not to say that we won't get more new sites reported this evening, but this is a heads up. Please do not attempt to call hotels and reserve your rooms ahead of time. This makes it difficult for us to negotiate our group rates and drives the cost of the class expenses up too. So far it looks like potential venues have good vacancies now as well.

More around 10PM. If later, it's for a good reason - Trust us!

2106 North American Championships ON for Madison, Wisconsin
Configure
Submitted by kent.baker on February 18, 2016 - 21:15
The City of Madison, Wisconsin will be our host for the 2016 DN North American Championships. Green Lake, WI is a back-up site.
Due to a wrestling tournament in the city, the downtown hotel situation is less than Ideal. Please bear with us until Noon Friday so we can work out the best solution for our group.

Scouts will continue to check Lakes Mendota, Menona, and Kegonsa to determine the best ice and launch situation.

So sit tight, drive safe, and tune back in Noon Friday for the Hotel information. Launch information will hopefully be posted Friday night.

Location
Olin Park
1156 Olin-Turville Ct., Madison, WI
United States
43° 3' 15.3108" N, 89° 22' 37.9812" W
Click Here to See Google Map

PRIMARY LAUNCH SITE:

Olin Park, Madison, WI.

DO NOT DRIVE ON THE ICE. You can push trailers on the ice. There will be an ATV to help on Sunday. Another option is to carry on and leave your trailer attached to your car—if you do this you can legally park in the designated stalls for vehicles with trailers, which are closest to launch. YOU WILL BE TICKETED If you park in a stall designated for vehicles with trailers and you don't have a trailer attached.

DO NOT BLOCK THE RAMP. If there are ice fishermen waiting to drive on with an ATV, please be courteous and let them go first. The ice fishermen are held to the same standard as we are, but they tend to be quite vocal and we don't want to give them a reason to complain about us to the City of Madison.

A DAILY PERMIT IS REQUIRED AT THIS LANDING. Parking out on the road is free.

Options to pay:
1. There is a box to collect the fee at the landing. Check or cash accepted.
2. Pay online at this link:   Pay Online

OPTIONAL LAUNCH SITE:

Tonyawatha Trail Landing, Monona, WI (On the east end of the lake)
Link to Map


USE THIS LAUNCH SITE IF YOU MUST DRIVE ON.

Drive on at the landing, drop your trailer, immediately pull off the ice, and park on the street. YOU WILL GET A $350 TICKET IF YOU LEAVE YOUR CAR ON THE ICE. Dane County requires a Lake Access Permit at this landing which must be displayed on your dashboard. Contact exec.secretary@ice.idniyra.org for a copy of the Lake Access permit.

There is a box to collect the fee at this landing. Use above for online payment option.
