Give me a call if you can't get any riders. We are going to be busy getting ready for our open house next weekend, but I might be able to head out to the lake for a couple of hours on Sunday. The warm water side opened up April 1st so the temps should be good.

Consider me your last chance.

Regardless, if you come down, stop by the shop.

Too-Tall - Yesterday was blowin all day. Clinton would have been pretty rough. We ended up surfing a little last night on our lake. Water was right at 50. Clinton would have to be in the mid 60's based on that.

Had a couple stop by the shop tonight that just came off of Clinton. They didn't have the temp, but they both wakeboarded without wetsuits or heater tops. Air temp was only around 62, so the water must be pretty warm. They said they just stayed around the power plant outlet.

This weekend they are calling for highs around 70. You better make the trip down.

Hey Doug,
What are your shop's hours? I'd like to stop by on my way home from Clinton.
I need directions..coming from the lake 54 East.

I don't know what is considered the lower river and where it ends. St. Charles is at your own risk.

Too-Tall - Glad you found directions and showed up on Saturday. It was a pretty intense day for a while. We introduced a lot of new people to Mastercraft and our set up. Next time we'll get you on the water for a flying exibition.

Stop by anytime.

Thanks for the kind words. We're working hard trying to make this place a riders and skiers destination.

Waterski Mag just interviewed me for an article in a couple of months. Hopefully it gets approved and printed.

Let me know if you need anything.
