THE SLALOM COURSE IS IN!! Thank you to John Crivello for swimming for two hours tying up slalom balls and boat guides. Thanks to Kevin Bishop for bringing his boat and assisting with tying up hooks and bungee cord while driving the boat to the next sub-float. The course is as straight as it ever was and drives the same as always. Kevin ran right up through 38 off and got 3 @ 39 in a stiff tail wind. Water depth is perfect and still not horribly cold. A reminder that there will be some floating debris for awhile. The good news is we cut a lot of weeds. The bad news is with a north wind those weeds wind up at the launch ramp. Bring a rake. Get your boats inspected and let’s get some water skiing in before snow skiing takes over.
Seems like a record turn out at the October Meeting! Welcome our guest Joan Alpen!

Had over 60 people for the clean-up, more than ever! Thanks to the Cub Scouts & Police Recruits. 8 tires, 16 bags of trash! Thank you to everyone who helped!
Out house has been delivered, docks & benches have been sealed! Pond will start filling 10/11 and SHOULD be completed by 10/15. Many people have helped get things in order, but special thanks goes to Jerry Heinrich! Jerry has worked non stop with the water district and WE ALL APPRECIATE IT!!! THANK YOU JERRY! Free rides for Jerry – for life! Please use common sense when you launch. Check the area for debris before you ski!
If you’re not currently inspected (Gordon need a picture of your green band) you are REQUIRED to turn in your key until you are inspected and Gordon Jensen has a pic of your green band. This is not optional. To lead by example, Daren Barry got his boat inspected Friday at Lexington. Speaking of Gordon… he has magic dock carpet for a limited time only!
We need a president. All positions are open to contest, please contact Jerry if you’d like to help the club!

Up & Running – Thank you Daren Barry!
Coyote Lake: Sunday is short (10) Saturday is 9 members + 5 family guests= 14 total skiers. Discussed the low turnout + money spent may not be the best of club funds. Other view points were that this was still for the good of the club and is being offered to everyone, it’s not exclusive. Club voted OKAY for Saturday Only.
