A big thank you to all those that officiated and helped out at The Pond in Avon, CT during the 2023 Pre-Regional Tournament this past weekend! Your help is always greatly appreciated!
Also appreciate the support as the tournament moved from 3 days into 2 days as a result of the volume of water we needed to contend with.
The event summaries have been posted to Waterskiresults.com. Just find and select the Pre-Regional tournament; then select “Publish Results” in the upper right hand corner.
Friday Stats: 32 Jump Pulls plus 34 Trick Pulls taking 8 hrs 29 mins.
Saturday Stats: 107 Slalom Pulls taking 9 hrs 26 mins.
Please give a couple of days before the scores are posted to the ranking list and official credits are recorded on your respective records.
You know who to call if you have any questions. 🙂

The testing procedure for driver upgrades to Regular or Senior Driver has been updated. The test now requires the use of Sure-Path for the practical on-water test, but the test can now be administered by two Senior Drivers instead of three. Testing forms have been revised to implement this change and in addition to the forms, the boat path report from Sure-Path must be submitted with the paperwork. Since this is a new procedure, anyone contemplating upgrade testing this season, should get in touch with our driver committee rep, Al Harris, for further information.
Running Orders and Official Assignment are now available. Please review where you are in the running order and if you are assigned to any work positions. Please contact David Allen email@example.com if you have questions or issues.
