You could leave it there but probably have a one bouy course on monday.I was lucky this year,only lost one bouy for the entire season,a record,and the course is always in the water.Education is the only way to go with others boats even if it's frustrating sometimes.I put a course for 5 years now and i find that more and more peoples stay out of it now,before they use to run the boatpath just for the fun of it,ripping bouys out or pulling a tube around turn bouys.Now they know what it's for and respect it more.(EXCEPT PWC).

My permit with the MWD is only for the course to be in Monday -Friday.Next week I hope to get that changed for the rest of this season.The lake I'm at is a zoo on the weekend.
But summer is over and it is getting to cold for the weekend warriors. So I hoping Monday will be that last setup day. :D

Good morning everyone.
This is going to be a good weekend. My brother came home for the weekend from the service (running from Ivan) and we plan on hooking up with some of my buddies and staying wet all weekend. :banana:
What is it with the water temp anyway? I have lived on the water all my life and I can’t ever remember taking it’s temperature. Down here we stick our toes in the water and say nutin-to-it! :eek:

Good morning All,
I knew I shouldn't open this post, I have abusy weekend ahead and won't be able to get to the cottage and ski. The weather has been absolutely beautiful and I know the season is about to end for us very soon. :cry:

I am glad to know some of you will be out there for us all.

Hey guys! Raining over here in Ohio, but the week-end forecast calls for sunny and 76 degrees. Mate's mother's birthday is tomorrow, and my little Mag ( my 15 year old daughter ) is coming here Sunday, so it looks like no boating this week-end :cry: But on the bright side ......all is well with the Mate :banana:

Mag thats good to hear.(about Mate)

It gets alittle cold here around Dec. and Jan. But it doesn't last to long.
If I owned a wet suit I could ski comfortable all year round. But deer season takes up most of my winter. And I don't know what the water temp. is here in the winter. Just cold

Hey Mag,
Sorry I screwed up your three word post yesterday.
I final figured it out.
But my jaw hurt and that's all I could think about. :D

That’s why we have weather people…. Hurricane coming…..pack and RUN
Although most of the time they don’t have a clue.

And yes, I think it’s official now we are a minority

It will never be 'official' because we would then qualify for beneficial treatment.

Was she real that mad? Or was it just a big joke? :o She was pretty mad at first......but towards the end she was having a little fun with you all ;) It's a pretty funny story (looking back now) how she found out I posted her picture.........let's just say I need the idiot of the year award. :uglyhamme

Morning Fellas. No skiing this weekend for me. :cry: However, I do plan to hit the Octoberfest. Losts of cold beer and bratwurst :friday: . Us southern boys can ski almost year round. I know you guys up north have to get in every run you can. Have a great weekend! :D

Looks like no ski for me this weekend. With all of the rain I was lucky to find a place that was not flooded last weekend. I had to drive 2 ˝ hrs to Tygart lake WV. Cool lake though

Sizzler, I have the same thoughts and the same problem -- green card is pretty well impossible.. (Canada should be pretty easy for you, though! Lots of empty space here... I'm told that the population in the South of the UK is greater than the entire population of Canada)

You can ski year round in Texas. But just because you can ...

March to November is plenty. Absence makes the heart grow fonder, etc., etc.

/saving money to hit the slopes next March. 'Til then, still hitting the water.

Pretty warm still in Indianapolis. Air mid 80's and water was 73-76 on PP. Starts dropping later this week. I'm in CA Oct 4th week and Thailand Oct 11th, I'm hoping still ski when I get back as kids have 4 day weekend Oct 23 wkend. I did find my old Tri-A full wet suits which take me down to around 60 water temp, if they didn't shrink too much....

It almost hit 100 degrees here this weekend (assuming it didn't). I was in Austin at the Austin City Limits Festival and it was miserable-hot. Could've used the lake. Good times nonetheless.

Today started off at 29 degrees F with a heavy frost:eek3: , but it did get into the 70's by midday... Unbelievably, it's time to winterize.:cry:

I think it got into the 70s Sunday, but I don’t know because I was done at the lake by 11:30A. I do know the air temp was 41 when we pulled into the lake. Brr..

Actually went skiing this morning water was 71, very nice and air around 80 this morning, warmed up to ~85 later. I think this is the last of the nice wx here. Skied 3 times and wakeboarded twice. Very sore now!

Well there ya go. It was so cold the other night I winterized the boat. So nice today went skiing this afternoon :) Now I have to do that winterizing thing all over. Crazy weather :rolleyes:
