View Full Version : Waterski Special on Local Madison TV

02-24-2007, 08:24 PM
Did any of you fellow Wisconsinites see the Discover Wisconsin Waterski special on Channel 27 on Saturday night at 6:30? I just happened to be watching the news and it was on right afterward. It actually sounded a lot like a statewide recruitement program for the show ski clubs. They had some good skiing shots from Bartletts show and a good stretch of crash sequences. I was disapointed as I didn't see too many MCs. There were a ton of Malibus though. It was refreshing to see the sport of waterskiing get some local exposure on TV.

Missed it! About time someone runs some waterski programs, especially about Wisconsin. I remember back in the 90s ESPN had the pro tour on it was called Hot Summer Nights it was great. ESPN started running dog shows and baseball during that time slot I have never seen it since on ESPN.
