Catching up after a fun-filled summer, I’ve posted the records forwarded to me by Chip Shand.
Please note: The skier is responsible to apply for a record in a timely manner. There is currently no paper form; submit your Eastern Region records via online form, or contact Chip Shand directly. It may take some time for the page to be updated after verification. Again, region records (not state), will be included on this site.
Check the appropriate page of records before the end of the calendar year to make sure your record is properly recorded. Year-end is deadline to be included in following year’s guidebook.
Items of note:
- Jake Abelson broke his father’s 33 year-old record in B2 trick.
- AWSA rules states that a performance in a Masters division can count toward the skier’s age group record if the conditions were the same. As a result of the above, some historical records were updated. Occasionally, Chip will come across other records missed and will record them.

Hello Friends, with sadness passing along info about Randy Youngsma’s passing, http://www.bumafuneralhome.com/obituary/Randall-H.-Randy-Youngsma/Uxbridge-MA/1766547. Visiting hours and service are Saturday morning, Dec. 9 in Uxbridge, MA.
Randy was an avid water skier and driver for many years in the Mass. and NH areas, especially at Oakham while it was Lex Carroll’s home. We will have more history coming soon. Feel free to add your thoughts in the comments.
Great news video! A friendly reminder, consider mentioning safety to the news personnel. Webmaster has had inquiries from viewers re: life vests.
A survey was created to collect feedback about Regionals. Click here to complete the survey.
Additionally, feel free to elaborate on any topics below.
A vote was taken at the summer meeting and was roughly equal. Please share your thoughts here about the pros and cons of each.
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.
