Gentlemen (And Ladies), Start Your Engines!

Registration for the inaugural Hard Water Summit is open. Target dates remain March 13 – 18, but in the event that Mother Nature serves up the Hollywood ice and perfect weather forecast early, we may shift to the week prior. Similarly, if she decides to dump some white stuff leading up to our target week, we may delay to the next week to allow the ice to clear.


March is high school athletic tournament time, so it would be a good idea to book your hotel reservation right away. Our guaranteed room block is limited, so if you miss out, you may be out of luck. Or sleeping in a tent on the ice, if you are hardy like Andy Gratton.


Make the journey getting there part of the fun by participating in the HWS Scavenger Hunt. You could win a framed photo of Ft. Peck Lake from Sean. Details here.


Stay tuned for news on our limited edition commemorative clothing item that you will have the option to purchase. It’s certain to be a collector’s item and it will make you look 10 years younger when you are wearing it at the bar.


Your HWS Management Team,
Daniel, Sean and Deb
