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 firstname.lastname@example.org. 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.
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. We have a thriving Junior Development program with yearly camps and clinics. We welcome you to our little bit of ski paradise.
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.
Each skier is skiing against their own handicap, with the skier in each bracket that does the best against their handicap advancing. For example, if Becky Bartlett were to score 2@32 (+2 above her handicap), while Justin Campfield scored 5@35 (.25 below his handicap), Becky would advance.
Adults will be competing for a cash-prize purse of nearly $1,000, while juniors will be competing for trophies.
Only two stops remain to qualify for the Sept. 5th finals at Pangaea: the Dubes Ski Classic XXXII on Aug. 22, and the Tom Costello/Alan Rossi Vermont State Championships on Aug. 28.
At the conclusion of the series, the top eight adults and four juniors will qualify for the series championship’s head-to-head finals. Adults will be competing for a cash-prize purse of approximately $1,000, while juniors will be competing for trophies.
