GG's Responsible Gambling Guide offers information on responsible gambling, problem gambling, relapse prevention and help for families of problem gamblers. By the time you have bet the farm, it’s probably too late to simply quit; regardless of whether you win or lose that wager. But simply being aware of a bad feeling at the end of a session, or even moving your threshold, or floor, or cut-off point in a session a little lower than you planned is not enough to determine a problem. Even when we only play with what we can afford to lose; and let’s be honest, we have no business doing anything else; we might still regret losing our bankroll for that session.

I've sailed on ice for years in CO, mostly with my old DN and bought this book on a whim.

If you are even curious about iceboats, this is a modest investment and a fabulous piece of work. The author writes a good story about how infectious this sport is but also did a LOT of work researching the history of iceboating and decribing the evolution of comtemporary iceboats.

She also has a lot of technical information involving racing right-of-way and rules that I am not interested in because my boat is a beat up old cruiser but it's a great reference piece. Entertaining reading at the very least.

If you ever see sails on ice, drive down there and talk to the sailors. They're generally friendly people who might well let you take their boat out providing you understand that it is actually a very fast and potentially dangerous activity. Depending on the wind of course. She'll explain that to you in this book.

There is a dearth of books on iceboating. I found books from 1922, 1938, 1962, and 1974, with Levy's Iceboating the 1974 work. It is a great introduction to the sport, covering all aspects from history to all of the bits that compose a boat to safety on the ice. I like Levy's writing style and the book has a nice layout. It's an expensive used book, but I thought it was money well spent. Note that there is a contemporary book called Think Ice! Millenium Edition, The DN Iceboating Book by Lloyd Roberts and Warner St. Clair published by the International DN Ice Yacht Racing Association (IDNIYRA). It is very good book for anyone interested in iceboating (not just DN sailors) and it is spiral-bound with glossy pages and runs about 100 pages in length. See IDNIYRA on the web. Think ice!

This is an old out of print book which has been on my find if I can list so it was great to add to my collection on this subject

Gave me info. I needed. Old book was fine for the circa. 70's boat I purchased.
