Just a quick shout out to a see if a couple of MasterCraft owners I have seen in the SW burbs were members here?

1.-Orange X-45 located in McKenna Woods in Plainfield

2.-Red 197 formerly located in McKenna Woods in Plainfield

3.-Blue ProStar 190 seen on Black Road in Joliet

4.-White Expedition seen with MasterCraft sticker in Plainfield

5.-Green Explorer seen with MasterCraft sticker in Plainfield

6.-Does anyone know who owns the house on the "pond" at I55 just north of Renwick (East Side of I55)? I think this would be a good pond for a slalom course of for wakeboarding off a jet ski

7.-White/Red ProStar 190 seen around Caton Farm and Drauden area

Drop me a line if any of you belong to the board. :toast:

I was over that way yesterday, it looks like there is a "MARINA" off the stevenson just south of 30. What waterway is near that? And is that a dealer of some sort?

I'll add to the Chicago MC contingent. 97 PS 205 in Naperville. Always looking for a close place to ski ...... most of the time we trailer to Shelbyville.

I think that is just a shop. Closest waterway probably is either a handful of private lakes and then the Illinois River just south a few miles.

Hey, we did finally meet my friend and it was a pleasure!
Just too bad it was such a crappy day.
Can you believe how dirty it was at that marina? I had to use wax to remove it. It's a good place for storage but I won't launch there anymore and it's getting too difficult to get in there for gas too.

I'm in Crest Hill and have a '96 prostar 205. 40 min. away in Seneca we run the Ill. river. We ski and barefoot early AM then beach or anchor to swim and party with friends. Its a great pool between locks in Morris to Marsales. Three resturants and bars. The small lake you have seen of I55 is privite and I have seen a Nautique in it, poor guy. Our boat has small teal and small black stripe if you see us stop and say HI !!

Next time you head down to Clinton, let me know. I've got a private lake in Farmer City with a pro shop on it. We're about to finish another turn island which will give us two different slalom courses. I've also got some friends that are supposed to be building sliders that they want to put in the lake. Stop by and check us out.

Boy, MasterCraft is just selling the begeezus out of the X-Stars pickleforks up here in the far Northwest suburbs of Chicago. Coming home from skiing this afternoon, I passed two X-Stars (white/red rear-end and black/silver flake sides), and then an X-45 that was dark gray with a silver rear-end all within a minute of each other. Their everywhere up here! Spotted them along Rawson Bridge Road in Cary along the Fox River.

Unless you want to come out to St. Charles to ski? That would be about 1 hour drive time for you from Elk Grove.

we most def all need to try to get together for a day out with some beer...aka alot of beers and some sets. Elgin fox has a slalom course but really no place to dock which may be a problem. If we tried for early may i have a friend right on the river we could dock 2 boats there and anchor the rest for a big boat party

Doug Meeker

Just to throw out an idea and a plug for our set up. If you wanted to head south to Farmer City. We could put together something for a Mastercraft TT outing. No need to bring your boat, unless you wanted to head down to Clinton Lake for an extra day. Bring your ski and/or board. Hit the water, hang out, whatever.

Give me a call or send an e-mail if you want to put something together.


We had a group from The Malibu Crew put together a mini-reunion and spend a day last fall. They came from Illinois, Missouri, Wisconsin, Colorado, and Ohio. They are starting to plan a couple trips this summer. Even though we are Mastercraft, they had a great time.

Our lake is 22 - 24 foot deep. Typically you can see your ski or board under water when you are in the middle of the lake. The shorelines get cloudy from the wakes.

If you make it to Clinton, give me a call. We should be back in the shop on April 1st.

If there is interest in having an event down here. Let's start putting the details together.

Clem,

I am about 2 minutes from your house, Drauden between Theodore and Caton Farm. :D

We have a black 2500HD with a Mastercraft and Barefoot stickers on it.

A friend of mine puts her boat in at Morris and says it is good. Not too shallow and if you get there early, there aren't too many people. I have not been there yet but wouldn't mind making the trip.

Sassy Dog is in Minooka and I foot with him from time to time.

Good times, windy on Sat calmed down later in the day for a nice ride.
Very loud on Sat night till the sun came up, man those guys like to party. These boats have nice stereos, but not so nice at 4 am

I took Curt out on my boat sun morning after two hrs of sleep, a lot of beer, and riding on 8 boats on sat. MAN that guy can throw down some tricks on a wakeboard, fun to see. I don't think anybody charges gas money to that guy.
Used my new prop on sat. I think Mark was throwing logs in the river to help in the prop department.:purplaugh :

My two boys (13 & 11) have taken lessons from Doug in the past few weeks and he is AWESOME! The boys can't wait to go back for their next wakeboarding runs.

Doug has a great private lake and his pro shop has some wonderful equipment...we just purchased 2 pairs of bindings for our wakeboards and are looking forward to using them.

If you're ever in the Central IL area, it is worth the drive to go to Farmer City and check out The Liquid Edge.
