You can join the Utah Water Ski Club this year!

Dear Utah Water Ski Club Wait List Members:

The #2 and #4 people on the wait list have now put their spot up for bid, one lives in Texas and the other does not have a boat. If you would like to bid on one or both of these positions send in your highest bid by 6 pm on April 25th to scotchipman@gmail.com and hank_cobb@yahoo.com. If you are the winner of the #2 position you will be the fourth and final new member of the club this year for a total of 60, the winner of the #4 position with be guaranteed membership in 2012. Don't bid on the #2 position unless you are ready to join the club this year! First year dues are $350 + $70 for a USA Water Ski Membership, renewing every year after that is currently set at $125 + $70 for a USA Water Ski membership. Remember you must bid at least $8.33 for every spot you move up the wait list which is given to the person you trade with, any extra goes to the club. The highest bid is based on how much you bid per spot you move up NOT on the total amount you bid. For example if the # 12 person on the wait list bids $150 on the # 2 position ($15 per spot) he/she would win over the # 32 person who bids $300 ($10 per spot) on the # 2 position. Also if you are the highest bid at say $15 per spot and the next highest bid in $10 you would win and only pay $11 per spot, not $15. If you have any questions e-mail scotchipman@gmail.com

In the future if you want to put your spot up for bid you MUST notify the VP of membership BEFORE APRIL 1st as stated on
http://utahwaterski.blogspot.com/p/guests.html Also if you put your spot up for bid you have no control of where you end up so the board would advise against it unless you have changed you mind and no longer wish to join the club and want to recoup some of the wait list money.
Thanks for your interest in the Utah Water Ski Club and happy skiing!

Discount on GOODE

Dear Utah Water Ski Club Member/Wait List Member,

Utah Water Ski Club members/wait list members have been offered a discount on GOODE skis depending on how many we buy, likely around 10%. The new skis now have a 5 year warranty and a 30 day money back guarantee.

Check out http://www.goode.com/ for their new 2011 skis which include the FIRE, 9960, and the NANO, you can get the FIRE and 9960 with inserts but have to use Dual Lock on the NANO. All three skis come in a regular, Mid, or Wide widths. Scot Chipman recommends the Mid which is what he is on.

If you would like to order a new ski send a e-mail to utahwaterskiclub@gmail.com with the model and size, you are not committing to buy just yet. If you have every wondered why a majority of people on the podium at regional's and nationals are on GOODE now is the time to find out with a money back guarantee, all you pay for is shipping if you don't like the ski. You don't even have to pay for shipping if you want to pick up your ski from the GOODE factory in Ogden.

Happy Skiing!
