    Jet Blast 2018 Sponsored by Jet-Lift - BJPs Return to the Dells

    Jet Blast 2018
    Thursday May 31st through Sunday June 3rd (yeah, many people will show up on Tuesday/Wednesday )
    As always, our primary Badgerland Jet Pilots annual riding event is held on the weekend following Memorial Day.


    Yeah, you read the title right, we are returning to the Wisconsin Dells. Same awesome upper Dells riding, beaches, cliffs, sand bars, tour boat wakes and scenery - however, we DO have a new and better location!!!

    Last year we held Jet Blast 2017 at Hattie Sherwood campground on Green Lake. Our trial run there, with about 40 of us, in August of 2016 was awesome, so we made the move. What we learned the following June is that Green Lake just doesn't have much boat traffic at all that time of year. The campground itself was awesome, and the folks who run it were the best to deal with of ANY campground people we've worked with since 2012 - and the town/bars/restaurants within walking distance - all awesome, but the riding left something to be desired, so I went back to work. Lots of work. Ask me at Jet Blast 2018, and I will tell you about all of it. Crazy long story of ups and downs. All worth it. But lots of driving back and forth, and emails, and meetings, and phone calls, and another trial run back in September with about 30 or 40 of us - AND - well, we landed the campground we originally wanted to be at way back in 2012 = Holiday Shores in the upper Dells. Holiday Shores is a 200+ acre campground owned by the same family for 43 years which started life as something like 15 acres??? (I can't recall the exact number, but the couple who still own it today, Frank and Alice Ward, have been continuously growing the campground for 4 decades, and they were the first inductees into the WI Campground Hall of Fame.)

    What does Holiday Shores have for us?
    Several types of rental units: Park Models and Deluxe Park Models (2 bedrooms each), Motel units (2 beds and a bathroom), and Guest Houses (2 beds and common bathroom adjacent).
    SANDY BEACH. Lots of beach. WAY more room for parking skis than we ever had before.
    Paved and private boat launch owned by the campground.
    2 swimming pools.
    Gorgeous wooded campsites, up high, so NO flooded out and muddy sites.
    Gorgeous riverside sites overlooking the Wisconsin River.
    A huge bouncy house play area for the kids, and some of our younger-feeling attendees .
    Large game room and billiards area.
    Club 21 = bar on site.
    A huge permanent pavilion that easily holds 350 people. This is where we will hold our "campfire poker run" (to win the sponsor-donated prizes), and will be our main hang out during the event.
    A huge bonfire pit next to the pavilion.
    A GREAT spot on the EAST side of the river, about a mile or so closer to the narrows than we were in the past, AND no huge bay to putt through to get out to the main river.
    GREAT access to restaurants on the road nearby and just 5 minutes from the historic downtown Dells area, with lots of cool bars and restaurants.
    Just 3 miles up the road from the CWCAC Food Pantry, and yes, Fred WILL be making an appearance again in 2018!!!!!

    HOW DO I REGISTER for Jet Blast 2018?

    Step 1: Purchase your Jet Blast admission through me directly. Similar to Green Lake, I'll need the names and cell numbers of everyone in your group. Payment will be via Paypal personal payment, cash or check. Cost will be $30/person. Kids 12 & under free.

    My paypal (and email to send names/numbers to) is psucharski@tds.net

    So please contact me through my e-mail and NOT the PM system here at pwctoday or on FB. My e-mail is how I keep all of this organized.

    Admission fee includes:
    A) One scorecard in the general game (per paid attendee) of the Campfire Poker Run (to win the sponsor donated prizes).
    B) Wristband that gives you access/permission to use the boat launch, permission to beach skis at the resort, permission to bring an atv/golf cart and use it in accordance with our event policy (more on that later), access to the pavilion, and access to your share of the free sponsor swag.
    C) Access to book a reservation within the block of campsites and rental units set aside for our event.

    Step 2: Once your admission is purchased you will receive the info needed to let the campground know you're attending Jet Blast 2018, and you then call the campground directly and book your reservation.

    The plan is to have the Campfire Poker Run, in/at the Pavilion and bar on Saturday night. More info for this will be posted and announced at the event, but it will be run much like it was at Jet Blast 2017. We have already worked on a plan to speed up the scoring process, so it will run very smooth. Ask anyone who was at Green Lake. The Campfire Poker Run was WAY more fun than standing around for 90 minutes hearing names called off in a raffle. Not dissing raffles, per se', but even I grew weary of them. The poker run was interactive. People got to walk around, socialize, enjoy jello shots at each stop , and it really ads a whole new level of strategy to awarding the prizes. Hint: If you don't build a strong hand first time around, you will have time to buy more scorecards and play more hands. You don't just load up on raffle tickets and hope.

    As you can see above, EVERY attendee is already entered into the Campfire Poker Run with their paid admission, but additional poker run scorecards will be available for purchase at the event.



    More posts with pictures coming. I'm splitting all this info up into multiple posts.

    Be sure to check out our website:
    http://badgerlandjetpilots.com/

    Sponsor info, so far

    Jet-Lift has been with us in HUGE ways since day 1 of the BJPs, and they have chosen to remain as our title sponsor. Awesome products and service, all made in the USA!!!!

    Rhaas Products has also been with us forever, and Robin went crazy for 2018 loading us up with stuff for the build of our 2018 fundraiser ski, the JS701 Sleepersaki (see the build thread in the BJP section here at pwctoday).

    Klotz, of course. Rick the Klotz man is THEE man. Buy your oil from him. Best products, best prices, best service.

    ROBO-TOW. Robodad is the badazz you WISH was your dad . If you don't already have a Robo-Tow, well, duh...

    Skat-Trak. As always. They KNOW how to support the sport, and their support of the BJP's efforts has been stellar.

    Z-Force Racing. Tim Z has been the man for decades now. If you don't have any z-force work done to your motor, you're missing out.

    Westside Powersports. Nick is the man for everything SeaDoo on the planet, period. Best prices, best selection, best knowledge, best reputation, best service.

    JetRenu. They jumped on with us as soon as they got rolling. Awesome products. Second to none.

    Liquid Militia. OMG, they truly put their money where their mouth is. They've always loaded us up with excellent goodies and swag.

    Blowsion. They've also supported us for years. Lots of cool goodies from them year after year after year.

    And, I just recently added a new sponsor, Handee Clamp, https://www.handeeclamp.com/. Funny story. My wife bought me a Handee Clamp for Christmas, and I thought, well, everyone who owns and works on jet skis needs this tool - so I sent them an e-mail, and BINGO - they're in for 2018.

    Going off of memory here, so I hope I'm not forgetting anyone, but I will add/correct later if I screwed up. I've actually been REALLY busy with personal/family issues since Memorial weekend of 2017. My in-laws, both in their mid-80s, have been in and out (but mostly in) the hospital or rehab since last spring. It's been a lot of stress, mostly on my beautiful wife, Michelle, but it's made planning things very tough. I'm glad to say they're both doing MUCH better now, and both are finally back home as of last week.
