Back for its second go around, if you will, is the Waterski Magazines Slalom Shootout.
It begins on Webcast TV on Wednesday Morning at 8:00 AM...and who in their right mind wants to watch waterskiing at 8 am?
But, anyways, the event is back this year on your computer screen with a few changes. There is a day one, but, nothing really fun goes on then. So we skip ahead to day two (Wednesday) and paste some info nabbed from Waterski Mags website.
"Day Two – Slalom Shootout Part I
*Open Men's Slalom Tournament: A one-round, men's slalom tournament for the chance to compete in two more non-traditional events.
*38 Off Spin it to Win It: The top 12 skiers from the open round run consecutive 38-off passes until they fall or quit. The skier with the highest ball count wins.
Day Three – Slalom Shootout Part II
*ProAm Tournament: Clinic participants will compete alongside three skiers from each boat team in a handicapped, Class F tournament for the chance to win gear and prizes.
*Cold 39 Contest: The top 12 skiers from the open round start the event at the 39.5 off pass and see how close they can get to the world record.
*Head-to-head Team Challenge: In each heat, one skier from each team skis behind his sponsor's boat. The best score wins the heat and a point for the team. At the end of five heats, the team with the most heats won (points) wins the challenge."
What would be more interesting would be instead of a cold 39, have a cold 30/30 competition.
Now granted, there may not be technically a 30 off pass, but, follow me on this one.
You are required to slam a 30 pack...beer bong available if need be...and then you must ski a 30 off pass.
Think about it, how awesome would that be? Just imagine!
Lets get it on!!
