I'm sorry Sue, my scanner here at home does not work. I will try to remember to take the mag to work with me Monday and scan it there. Congratulations on having your pictures in WaterSki!

I left something at the office I just couldn't do without. So I brought the mag and did some scanning...

Very Cool. Thanks so much. We just got our March issue last week. I knew this would be in April. I figured I has a few weeks to wait to see this. I was wondering what pictures they would end up using. By they way what did they call the article? Thanks again.

Gee whiz, thanks Rex and others. It just came out of the blue in January when they sent an email to Rick saying they picked Grand Rapids, MI for their top 10 list. They emailed to Rick because he is president of our water ski association/ show ski team. They asked him a few questions about Grand Rapids and said they wanted to publish some of my pictures. I found out what they were looking for and off it when from there. It's kind of fun.

By the way, my April magazine hasn't come yet. Its driving me crazy!

You know what's odd? I have had a subscription to the mag for years. My daughter recieved one as a gift this past Christmas. Her April issue showed up the day this thread was born. Her March issue came a few days later. I have still not recieved my April issue.:confused:

I was flipping through the mag last night and immediately recognized the pictures. Figured there'd be a thread already, did a quick search, voila. I take it the TriStar owner is your club as well?

Nice job Sue.

Nice job Sue.

The TriStar belongs to my brother-in-law. I took that picture one evening when both our families were out with our boats. My brother-in-law (driving the boat) and my son's friend Ryan (barefooting behind the TriStar) both do ski with the team however. The other two pictures have my son skiing in them. The New Years Day picture was a ski team event.

My dad and his friend were talking this over, "Grand River?? skiers paradise???!!" they think its in there because of money paid by Action or similar deal. Really Grand Rapids isn't the best place to ski, especially not poop river.

I would say the WaterSki Magazine is correct on the passion, ski shows, waterways scattered everywhere in the area, lack of boat traffic (except for places like Gun Lake that is crazy on the weekends) and there are good areas to ski that are sheltered from the wind. I would agree with the GR Press, West Michigan's inland waters aren't what I'd describe as crystal clear.
