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.

In Memory of Bill Sapp

Unsung Hero

Bill Sapp

There are many unsung heroes in our water ski community.  Without them our sport wouldn’t be what it is today.

Bill Sapp, a founding member of both Timberlake and also of Garlands Millpond before Timberlake, passed away on April 30th.  Bill had been battling Parkinson’s and was pretty much bed bound from that.  Recently he developed Covid-19.  Our prayers go out to Bill and his family.  Bill had 3 children, now adults.  Erin, his eldest daughter, Gayle his middle daughter,and Brett, his youngest, all skied at Timberlake. Brett did quite a bit of fishing there as well.   Janet Marks is Bill‘s sister and she has been by his side since Parkinson’s took over his life.

If Bill had not been with us to help plan, guide and especially execute his leadership role in Timberlake’s physical development, there simply would not be a Timberlake.

When you look around Timberlake you see Bill’s lagacy.  The workmanship in the Timberlake boat house is in great part due to his precision and hard work.

Billy was a pleasant guy and was that way to all.  I never
heard him say anything ugly or disparaging, he was a true gentleman, and
he always shared a great smile.  Billy contributed a lot to Timberlake
as an accomplished builder and hard worker.
