Regarding latest 4 notifications

Hi All,

You will have received 4 notifications of new pages. There is nothing to be alarmed about. My email did not get hacked. It is simply an unanticipated and frustrating conflict with another useful plugin that notifies people of new posts. But when I installed a new plugin that creates a few standard checkout pages, you were all notified without me having the choice or ability to prevent that. Apologies. Ignore.

Heads up, this could actually happen again if I decide to install a different eCommerce plugin. I will attempt to not have you notified, but I’m not sure if I can deactivate the other conflicting plugin without losing all the associated data.

Darlene, Webmaster

Epstein, Carpenter lead NESS with two stops remaining

Northeast Slalom Series stops John’s Lake 115 (results) and the Eastern Regional Championships (results) are now in the books, leaving only two stops to decide the qualifiers for the Sept. 2nd head-to-head finals at Pangaea.

On the Men’s side, Bruce Epstein used strong showings at both John’s Lake and Regionals to pull ahead of Dan Warner, with Michael Tilton and Dennis Jenks close behind. With a field of 30 Men’s skiers, the top-50 percent cut-off for the finals is 15th place, which is currently held down by Fotis Dulos. The Vermont contingent of Ben Musty and Justin Campfield are a mere ten points ahead of him, while Skip Hommel is only 10 points behind.

On the Women’s side Zoe Carpenter has pretty much sewn up the No. 1 seed in the finals with 130 series point to date. Her nearest competitor is Donna Jenks with 80. Kathy Callan, Shannah Pochini, Julie Hommel and defending champion Skylar Hathorn are all battling it out for what will likely be only two additional spots in the finals.

Only two NESS stops remain until the finals field is determined – Aug. 19th at Dubes and Aug. 26th at Wrightsville.

Pre-Regionals Junior Development Update

We have a great evening of fun planned for our juniors on Thursday evening from 6pm – 8pm at The Castle Fun Center – take a look at the website at http://thecastlefuncenter.com/.

All juniors competing at Regionals and their siblings are invited for fun, activities, pizza and ice cream. Parents are welcome to join in for the pizza and ice cream. However, we need to get a head count ahead of time. Please RSVP for the party by July 23 by emailing to TG Powell.

Parents who want to purchase activity passes for themselves can do so for a discounted price of $17.99 as long as you reserve your spot by the July 23rd deadline (payment can be made onsite at Regionals at the Junior Development Tent).

Stop by the Junior Development Tent at Regionals on Wednesday afternoon during registration, and all day Thursday. The tent will be between the two lakes, and close to both start docks. Juniors can check in to pick up their t-shirt and get their picture taken for the guidebook. Special thanks go out to Kaleidoscope Imprints for providing the T shirts! Parents and others can check out the FUNdraising activities including a raffle, equipment exchange, and a selection of water ski and East is Beast themed merchandise – all to benefit Junior Development.

HOW CAN YOU HELP?

Do you have t-shirts left over from your tournaments or events? Donate them to the Junior Development t-shirt sale. Event t-shirts are always some of our most popular items.

Donate you old water ski gear to the Junior Development Equipment Exchange Bin. Here is how it works: Bring your old wetsuits, bindings, gloves, handles, skis … drop it off at the used equipment exchange bin – look for the big blue bucket … and let’s do an equipment sale! You donate the equipment, others snag the equipment and put $$ in the jar. – all proceeds go to Jr Dev!!!!

Any questions or to volunteer to help out, contact TG Powell by email or at 703 395 7499, or stop by the juniors tent at Regionals.

REVISED Event Order East Regionals

Webmaster note: This has NOT been updated. Still correct. Just made the mistake of sending a duplicate notification.

An updated PDF is available, this will be considered the final event order and boat assignments with the exception for those divisions that are expecting to have a Master Craft.

Again, please note that we DO NOT have confirmation from Master Craft regarding boats at the regional championships.  So those divisions/events currently show TBD for the boat type.  This has been escalated and is being addressed.
