Any takers?

We are heading up north for vacation so I am a no-go for this week (and next).

When we get back in time, I'm sure we'll be going out at least once during the week...

where do you go usually?

Either the Fox in St. Charles...but it has gotten crowded there as compared to prior years.

Down south, some friends go to the Illinois River and also the River in Wilmington.

A few people from the board wanted to go out and ski earlier this summer but my schedule has not been too accomodating.

I'll have my boat down in Elgin next week if anyone is interested in skiing. Do you guys know who has the northern course in St. Charles?

It is located in front of Ford's house but it is open to the public since it's on a public waterway.

Most people I see skiing the course in SC are on the course in the middle section...right where we are footing :mad:

I would be interested in getting together to ski at times. I live up in Lake Zurich and have an XStar on the lower Fox down by the Broken Oar. The Xstar isn't that good to ski behind, but great to wakeboard. So let me know if your looking for others to connect with to do some skiing. Eric never takes me skiing, and I'm right next door.

Eric, You never bring a ski boat anymore, only wake machines. I think that your secretly changing sides.

Hi all! I am boatless, but, if anybody ever needs a spotter/driver/ski partner, let me know. I have skied with PaulW several times.

Paul even taught me to wakeboard last week. He is a great guy, and owner of a beautiful X-Star. I live in Cary and am five minutes from the Broken Oar on the upper Fox.

Hi Dave,
We are looking to get you out again to do some boarding. I hurt my shoulder the other day and just waiting to see how it feels for the next few days. I wanted to do an early set on Saturday or Sunday, and was going to call to see if your were open, I'll let you know.

Eric,
Is this a river law, only skiing below the Algonquin dam, and boarding above the dam?:D
