Some of us ski in tournaments so lets hear about where they are, when are they scheduled and how you did.

There is a tournament for the Far West Water Ski Club at Lake Nacimiento, Ca on May 20 & 21. It is a fun club tournament and very family oriented. New comers are always welcome.

Have you ever been to Dave's Pond near Erie? They have several tournaments there throughout the summer:

No, I am not skiing this. We have a house out in Newberry Springs, so I just know about it. I do not know Shelly or Clare, but I do know Canfield (One of the old partners)...

I understand the lakes out there are beautiful and ski really nice. Horton's needs to be dredged. Too shallow for my liking. Maybe they have done it since but when I skied out there a few odd years back both lakes were very shallow.
