July 3, 2011 - Updated Maps
As many of you are aware, the Country USA (CUSA) event was held last week on the same grounds that we use for volleyball, camping, and parking. Unfortunately, it rained for 3 days straight and the vast majority of the area turned into a mud pit. So, we will not be playing in the same area as last year, but have secured another great spot on the south end of the CUSA grounds. All traffic should come through the CUSA main gate (by the waterfall). Click on the images below to view the full maps.

June 21, 2011 - Road Construction Update
If you are traveling to Oshkosh from the West on US Highway 10, you're going to need to exit South on Highway 76 instead of Highway 45. There are detour signs up, but if you aren't paying attention, it's easy to miss. Here's a map with driving directions from Stevens Point, WI.
May 25, 2011 - Saturday Night's Band Selected
We are pleased to announce that Half Empty (2011 WAMI Cover Band of the year) will be playing underneath the main tent on Saturday night after the Men's Open final. Half Empty is a five-piece rock n roll cover band from the Fox Valley specializing in making sure every performance is a party people talk about all week in anticipation for the next one.
Public is welcome and admission is free.
May 16, 2011 - Camping Registration is Now Open
Camping registration for the 2011 Waupaca Boatide Volleyball Tournament is now open. Sites are awarded on a first-come, first-served basis, so the earlier you register, the better spots you are going to get. Register now!
One of the only problems we had with camping last year was that some people were loud all night, while others wanted to sleep.
Since we have such a large area to work with, we can easily resolve this issue by splitting the camping into two areas: the regular camping (including the RV section) and the family/quiet camping.
You will now need to choose if you want to be in the family/quiet camping area or the regular camping area when you register. The difference between the two is simply a respectable noise curfew of 10pm. Click here for all camping rules and details.
May 12, 2011 - Misty May Update
In February 2011 we signed a contract with Misty May to conduct her M2 volleyball camp at the Waupaca Boatride Volleyball Tournament. However, in March 2011 Misty and Kerri Walsh decided to qualify for the 2012 London Olympic Games.
We have had lengthy conversations with Misty and her management team about her decision, and we understand and fully support Misty and her dream of winning a 3rd Olympic gold medal. We also did not want to be known in the volleyball world as the event that prevented her from reaching her goal because of a signed contract. We are obligated to announce that Misty May will not be at the camps - as she will be in Europe for qualification events for the Olympics.
