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!
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!
The last Fun Tournament #4 of the series will be Saturday, August 17. The Big Dogs are behind the Squirrels by only 17 pts. That’s only 3 skiers! So it is important you come out to support your team.
