Learn/re-learn to ski or wakeboard

This is the opportunity for anyone who has not learned watersports to learn them, or anyone who has done them in the past to re-learn the skills. The water should be warm and everyone will have as much time as they want behind the boats. I have loaner skis and wakeboard and everyone is welcomed to use them, and I hope other boatowners will join in.

Due to limited parking please do not park at West Cove, instead park at the Village Plaza 106 Lake Ave across the street and walk over to the lake side at West Cove. Boatowners, contact me about getting day passes and launching.

This will be a semi-shore-based event.  There is a pool, hot tub and grill on site.  Bring your own food and drinks.

    Anya was supposed to go to Universal with friends, instead she volunteered to take the helm for her injured Dad and had a great time.

    Thanks to Jan for making the extra effort to bring his boat. Thanks to EVERYONE for helping set up, clean up, bring food and drink and general good cheer. Thanks to all who made contributions to help defray the costs--it is much appreciated. Thanks to Payam, Nadine, Gina, and Larry for working so hard on new skills! Each of you is destined to be skiing/wake boarding in no time! And special congrats to Jane, Deb, and John who are now bonafide skiers/wake boarders. Finally special welcome to the gang to Payam, Deb, Don and John!

    Awesome! Thank you all for being so welcoming, it was great to meet everyone! It was so nice to see everyone support each other learning to ski. Wakeboarding was so much fun and great exercise! It was a pleasant change not to be the responsible captain. It was really nice to meet several other female captains. I am looking forward to joining you all at future events.

    If you have your own PFD, please bring it. I am only bringing one as I have lost too many to keep track

  • Shannon

    Hi all,
    Just a heads up that the priority will be those who have not skied or wakeboarded previously, or those who have not done so in a long time. After they've successfully mastered/remastered the sport :), we will give a turn to those who are more experienced. Look forward to seeing all of you!

    April 23, 2014

    • Bruce

      Cheryl, If you have not skied, or it has been awhile, I encourage you to come! This is for YOU! There WILL be room!

      April 23, 2014

    • Shannon

      Yes, plenty of room for everyone at Shannon's Lakeside Resort. Y'all come!
