It appears that we're going to have to review our safety rules for the ski club...

East Tx Skier - you should play special attention to this as it could affect your club too

Can't wait to see you run the course at planing speed (26mph?), with a bright orange CGA vest, on a 75' rope with 3 people on board...one with a big red flag! Oh, and you must do the hand signals!

JD - I'm going to hook up two 15' off ropes end to end and have you try the course on a 120 ft rope...

I would be SHOCKED if there was anyone on this forum that could run the slalom course on that long arsed rope... Kyle only ran 2 buoys IIRC when I had him try it... I wish we had it on film, it was drink spewing funny... :D

I thought after you drank the beer you were supposed to set the perfectpass to 20 MPH and play dodgeball with kyle/mark skiing standing upright on a kneeboard...? :D
