Yo, get a trip-tik.

2) Waterskiing

OR.

"Hosted by the the Iowa State Univesity Water Ski Team and Dream Lake Estates, the event promises to set new standards for All-Stars and Team Trials.

Here's what the Iowa State Team has to say about their plans:

'The Iowa State ski team plans to make this an event to remember. Many ideas from the 2005 Nationals hosted by Purdue are already being used so that this is a tournament that makes the athlete feel like they deserve to be there. In addition to this, we want to give every All Star skier the chance to ski in front of a crowd like the pro skiers get the chance to do.'"
Oh..one more thing.

  1. Huxley is quaint, to put it mildly. Dream lake is a pretty sweet site. Waterskiing, etc might even make an appearance. I've gotta give y'all some mad props: your research dept is much better than mine. I've never had population stats for a tournament site.
