Pond/Creek Clean up Sept 21, 9am -Noon

National Coastal Cleanup Day is September 21, a day when thousands of volunteers cleanup all the trash that accumulates on our beaches and the waterways leading to the ocean. I did about a year and a half ago, I have registered myself as the Creek Cleanup Coordinator for the Pond.

As we all know, supporting the community with things like Learn to Ski and Creek Cleanups is our way of giving back to our community. Having the Water District/SCC Parks and Rec haul away hundreds of pounds of trash we harvest from Coyote Creek is very tangible proof of SCCWSC’s commitment to caring for the site!

But a lot of help is needed for a successful cleanup!! Please respond to me directly (Eringobraugh@mannas.net) if you can be there between 9 and noon on September 21 to collect a bag of trash – I’ll bring the bags! This cleanup should not impact what happens on the water, so bring your ski and/or boat and get in a set after performing this valuable community service.

Thanks in advance for your support! Earn Club Work hours also!

Fun Tournament #4 – The Weather cooperated and Fun was had by all

A one week delay turned out to be a great decision by the JHWSA commissioner – Jerry H himself. Mother nature gave us a wonderful day and some great skiing was had by SCCWSC Members and Non-members alike. A local group of photographers took over 3,000 photos of the skiers to work on their skills. The commissioner is still calculating the results of the winner in TEAM competition between the Squirrels and Big Dogs so that announcement (pending any protests for sandbaggers, whining, score adjustments, etc…) will need to wait. What can be said is our up and coming junior skiers did great and took Home some custom Trophies to prove it.

Thanks to all who supported and made this happen. See attached photos of action on the dock.

Next up is the County Open on Sept 15, Sign up NOW as lack of participation will cause it to be canceled.

Fun Tournament #4 – Delayed till Saturday Aug 24th!

Mother nature returns to normal with the heat wave passing and strong wins predicted for Saturday. Because of this and the safety of all our skiers the Tournament originally planed for the 17th is being moved to the 24th. Make a note on your calendar!

Rumor has it that all the HOT AIR this week was from BOTH Teams bragging on the Dock about how easy it was going to be to take down the other. Not sure about that,  but make good use of the extra week of Practice and get out and Ski!

The SCCWSC Fun Finals are here. Get out and Ski!

Saturday (8/17) will be our last Fun Tournament for 2019. Come out for a great ski ride while supporting your team. The Big Dogs are skiing better, but the Squirrels are showing up so points are very close. Big Dogs – 448.25, Squirrels – 465.75. We start at 8 and will not take entries after 11. $20 for 6 passes or 2 falls, whichever comes first. Jerry will hand out trophies to four amazing kids that skied in all conditions at our tournaments. News FLASH: We WILL have pizza, salad and water provided for lunch at 11:30. A local Photo Club asked if they could shoot some action photos at the tournament. We may have them in the boat or as close to the action as possible. Should be interesting to see what they come up with. Make sure you where your Sunday Best!
This will be Vintage Ski Memorabilia Day. Bring the ski you learned on, any old tournament ski t-shirts or ski bags. We will have a Head To Head slalom with Mish and Kevin, our team captains. They must pick any of the Vintage skis you bring . They can start at any speed or line length. I will give them 5 team points for every complete pass they make. Must increase speed or shorten line length after each complete pass. One mulligan.
I will send the score sheets to JHWSA to compile scores for each person and team score. Will present results and trophies at the Sept. 14 Club Dinner Meeting at Remi’s home. Bring $10 per person and a salad, side dish or dessert. Remi is providing the wine and meat. You must make reservations with Jerry to attend! Happy hour…5. Dinner…6. Club Meeting…7-7:10. Trophies till?
The Big SCCWSC County Open is Sept. 15. It takes at least 6 rated people counting judges, drivers, scoring, dock starters to run each division on at a USAWSA sanctioned tournament. There’s work needed to clean up judges towers, Look for email from SCCWSC Tournament Directors! So far Jerry is the only one signed up. The Colonel is suggesting we cancel this tournament (apparently he has a golf conflict) unless we get a boat load of skiers and workers sign up before the end of August. Let Scott A or Kevin B know you are in… $$/registration form show a great commitment.
Three practice days till Fun #4 showtime! Fun Time Full time at the Pond!
