Northern Ill Dragboat Assoc
John Groth is heading this new group and looking for new boats to join the group for 2015 season. He will provide help for those asking with boat setup and getting started.

I want to reach out to everyone that we have all lost a great friend - Danny Jackson.

Danny touched the hearts of many in the boating community including many in other states and even in the Far East with business colleges. He was always there when you needed help and would do anything to help. His loss has touched many as the people that have reached out to Patti has been overwhelming.

Please keep Patti in your thoughts, this is very difficult time for her.

I lost a GREAT friend!

Safe Boating Is Our Goal

We encourage members to abide by recognized
boating traditions, etiquette and local regulations. 
A high amateur standard of skill in the handling and
navigation of powerboats is our goal. Proof of boat
insurance is mandatory for every NIOC on-water event.
