I am not sure how to take your last posting....I was just trying to say that I would like to see it and would be willing to pay a reasonable DVD, DV, or VHS retail value should someone happen to record it while he/she is there. I assume it won't be televised, but I have not researched the event website.

I was at the shootout and it was interesting. Open water skiing and less than ideal conditions. the slalom event they had an announcer for. the rest of the day no announcer. great air chair demo and the guy did two double flips and landed them but always let go of the rope. No idea who won the wakeboard competion as there was no announcer. Actually a pretty disorganized event

I went and was kind of disappointed at the slowness, and disorganization. went Sunday for the finals. The skiing was tough as it was open water. Jamie Beausche won. At least they had an announcer for the slalom but nothing else. There was a 15 minute skyski demo that was awesome. the guy ended with a double flip and landed but didn't use the rope to land. The wakeboard I couldn't tell ya who won as there was no announcer. What they needed was a stereo blastoff contest for entertainment as there was so much side music going on there would have been some kind of music rythem. when you have a couple of hundred boats and 15-20 playing loud different music it kind of sucks. Konocti should have had their own stereo setup
