Talking Safety Tips For Waterskiing

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

Take note of that high tech equipment pictured

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...
