Seeking new header images

It’s been several years since any new images have been added to the website. If anyone has any they’d like to have highlighted, please email to webmaster. They must be at least 1200 pixels wide and should be croppable to the shape of the header images, three times as wide as tall, losing the top and bottom. It would be nice to get some of Timberlake and Avon Regionals and our new young stars.

In case you are not aware, although pictures are mostly randomly displayed, they can also be assigned to a page, so I will choose the best ones submitted for the header of each of the records pages that I just updated.

Please don’t overwhelm me. Send me your best.

Make your plans now to visit Virginia this summer and compete or support our water skiers at the RADAR SKIS Eastern Regionals, hosted by Timberlake Water Ski Club. The club is hard at work to make your experience a great one. Our lake has been host to three-event tournaments regularly since the mid 1990s including one previous Regional championships and numerous Virginia State championships.

This event is made even better thanks to the support of our Gold sponsors: RADAR SKIS, Drainfield Solutions, Peace Love & WaterSkiing, Lohr’s Lake Water Skiers, pillar2post Digital Media and Concierge Pet Medicine. Contact TG Powell if you’d like to add your name to the list.

There’s plenty to do in the area around Timberlake. Washington DC with the Smithsonian Museums and an abundance of history and culture is less than a 2 hour drive to the north. Head south and within an hour you’ll reach Kings Dominion Theme park and the state capitol, Richmond. Continue on for another 45 minutes and you’ll reach Colonial Williamsburg, where you can experience a living history of colonial days.
If you just can’t get enough skiing, then make your way to Peace, Love & Water Skiing, just over an hour’s drive to the west of Timberlake. Plan ahead as I’m sure Corey will be busy that entire month.
Visit skitimberlake.com for all the information. We’ll be updating the site regularly.
