It was my great honor to present the USA Water Ski Award of Merit to
Bill Baker on Saturday night.
They saved the best for last. When Bill’s name was announced I lost
sight of him as he made his way to the stage. Bill received a standing
ovation from the crowd of over 250 USA-Water Ski members in attendance.
It was a special night. A special honor for a special man who has been a
source of pride for Pennsylvania and the Eastern Region for decades.
Thank you Bill for your leadership and countless contributions to the
Port Indian Ski Club, the Keystone Water Ski Federation, the Eastern
Region, AWSA, USA Water Ski, and skiers all over the world.
This is the highest honor USA Water Ski has, and it certainly went to a
Many thanks to Lynn Novakofski for the great photos.
