FFRF convention attendeees are invited to take a boat cruise on Madison's Lake Monona or Lake Mendota on Friday, Sept. 15, prior to the start of the convention. The Monona Terrace Community & Convention Center, home to FFRF's convention, overlooks Lake Monona. Lake Mendota, on the other side of the isthmus, offers views of the UW-Madison Terrace and Maple Bluff. Both are beautiful!

For $50 per person, you'll be treated to a two-hour tour with a buffet, featuring clam chowder, chips and Cajun dip, vegetarian variety platter, seafood salad, chicken salad, pasta salad, fruit salad, sliced deli meats/cheeses, and assorted desserts. There is a cash bar for beverages. The tour begins at 10:45 a.m. and ends at 1 p.m. We'll have bus service to take you from Freethought Hall or the Hilton to the boat launch and back to the hotel, or you can walk the route. Maps will be available. Unfortunately, the yachts are not wheelchair accessible, as the walkways are tight and there are narrow stairs to the banquet area. There are three yachts. If you are coming as part of a group FFRF will make sure your group is aboard the same boat.
