2022 NESS to kick off this weekend with two tournaments

The biggest Northeast Slalom Series ever will kick off June 25 with two tournaments in one day at Avon and Wolfeboro.

The 2022 NESS season has expanded to seven states and 11 stops leading up to the Sept. 3 NESS finals at Pangaea, making it the largest schedule in the series’ history. The increased schedule will give more opportunities to more skiers, and create a larger cash-prize purse at the finals.

“The NESS has been a really great series, but it’s time to supercharge it,” said Dana Hinman, who has come on board this year as the series’ lead director. “This year’s cash-prize purse is definitely going to be an attention grabber.”

The registration fee is $25 for adults, while juniors are free.  To register, adults send $25 to the Old Farms Skiers (fiscal agent for NESS), via either PayPal (@oldfarmsskiers) or Venmo (@oldfarmsskiers). Juniors only need to email dana@hinmaninc.com. The adults will compete for a cash-prize, while juniors will compete for trophies.

The 2022 Northeast Slalom Series is sponsored by Hinman, Inc., h2oproshop, Avon Old Farm Skiers, and Cadillac Hill Carpentry, Radar Skis, and MacCallum’s Boathouse. More information at waterskitheeast.com.

Video Gates – An Easy Way to Review Slalom Gates – Almost Judge Proof!

Video Gates is a single-monitor Windows application that streamlines the slalom entrance gate review process. It is simpler to use and has better resolution than the common DVR. To provide the better resolution, Video Gates vertically crops 50% of each video stream and stacks them in the monitor display. Video Gates accepts two USB video capture devices (standard or high definition) or a multi-port SATA video capture device. Please read the manual that is included in the program.
