Not sure if there is one, but you can put me down for a third if you need one. Got an 06 XStar so won't be doing much skiing. I guess my son and the boarding won out this year.

There is a course put-in, maintained and taken-out by four of us near Johnsburg in a shallow bay called Dutch Creek. It's very shallow so only in-boards and wave runners can get into the course area. Conditions are typically good in the morning and evening. In the middle of day on the weekend duking it out with the wave runners is typically not worth it. The numbers of skiers using and helping with the course has gone down over the years as people have moved and retired from the sport. We'd love to have more skiers out there. The skiers range in ability from 15 to 32 off. We've also got every type of boat out there MC (2), Bu and a SN. Family friendly crowd - there's always a bunch of kids. Subject to the weather we typically put-in mid to late April. E-mail me for more details.

I would love to join you guys, and help out. I ski/barefoot on Wonder Lake and the Chain all the time. Never have really had a good chance to ski bouys and have always wanted too. Let me know when and I will be there.

Thanks. This is great news.
We are at the Fox River Marina - how long a ride would it be early in the am?
We will be in the water second or third week of April and would love to be a part of the group that uses and maintains the course. I believe our in-board will do ok in the bay.

Give me a call once you get the course setup, if you arrange a date to have everyone out there I would love to give everyone the chance to to try out the new MC's in the course.
