JMLVMI, i see you are from NC......where did you run your course at??
We have a small "ski club" (it's been 2 or 3 of us) that meets at Harris Lake once a week, and there is a submerged course on the lake. The line is anchored and we have to install and remove all of the balls every time we want to run it since we can't leave it. We are all novice skiiers (nobody can run a full pass that I know of)...looking to grow the "team" if you're interested. PM me and I'll add you to our email list.

I am going to Coble on September 7th for a one-day lesson. They may be full for the season but I know they do their best to work people in.

I wish I was closer to Harris however don't count me out. I'll send you a PM. Coble emailed me back this morning and put me on a wait list in case something opens up. She said they were pretty booked but would try to work something out. Already planning for next year though so I can guarantee something.

It's soooo easy for someone to tell us slalom in training folks.. it just takes time. Hopefully I will have some video from tomorrow with Wade Cox.
yes, please post video. Can't wait to see your progress after some professional coaching

If nothing else drive east to Liquid Edge in Farmer City Illinois. It is worth the drive IMHO
I think there are some in Des Moines but haven't looked that much. It's a decent drive but I should look into it. I have heard Lake red Rock had one, but have only been once and didn't hear about the course until after.

I have had one lesson at the liquid edge. He asked if I wanted to go through the course or get better ...... I said get better. Plan to go back at least once this year.

I've always thought the college clubs should have more sets ups so that people could rent sets from them.

Then you'd have ames and iowa city.
