Vintage Photos

Our club is fortunate to have a growing collection of photographs documenting the changes in Madison's ice yachting scene. Much of the credit goes to the club's archivist and historian, Greg Whitehorse. Greg will tell you that the credit should go to Lynn Langenfeld who first undertook efforts to actually organize the many photos, documents, and memorabilia related to our club. Following is a list of photos in chronological order. If you have photos to share, please email to the webmaster
