I took pictures at 4 ski shows last weekend. I went to the Division 2 Nationals at Warsaw Ind. plus our team had their last show of the year.

I hope you have fun with these kind of random pictures. By the way I will be more organized with the pictures I take this weekend at Division One Nationals. I plan to post my favorites pics from Div. 1 in show order by team like I did last year.

Here we go......................
This is your luck day I was in "Hoosier Land" and I saw some strange and interesting things.

The Lake City "Maidens of Mud" came up out of the water after the Lake City team took 1st place.

Is that a Hoosier happening?

ummm...isn't it illegal to operate a boat with someone sitting on the gunnell? unless that guy is harnessed in somehow, i'm surprised he wasn't tossed right out of the boat considering that the other guy next to him appears to be on his knees with a deathgrip on the bumper strip.

FYI: For general boating practices many of the things done in a show ski environment would be illegal and ticketable. Most states make acceptions to some safe boating rules for the show ski world. In a show ski environment there is always trained safety people on hand, all drivers are required to go through a training and certification program and all skiers are trained and well practiced for the acts they perform. Many of these acts would be dangerous to try by untrained drivers and skiers. Please do not attempt many of the show ski acts on your own with out proper instruction.

Most of the outboards are the dyne formerly dynaskies by Tom Miller of Fibroglass products of St. Joe IN.
