Vid Day Monday

I blew out my knee when I was about 19 or so and remember thinking how much it sucked to sit on the shore and watch everyone else skiing.  As I sat there I saw a guy in a wheel chair and felt sorry for him that he would never be able to enjoy the feeling of riding on top of the water.  Later that year at a 3 event tournament I saw a blind guy slaloming and then saw a guy with 1 leg jump.  How wrong I was about what the barriers to skiing really were.  In the years since then I have been involved in several adaptive ski events and have seen many more.  If you have never been a part of one of these events you need to strap on your big kid swim suit and go track one down.  They are very fun to be a part of.
