April News

Course #4b is up thanks to Tim Peterson and Dan Johnson who have been skiing for the last month, water temperature has been in the 50's. The water level is going up fast and we should have enough water to set up and ski course #3 by sometime in May, just need to get to -3.00 or higher. For the current Utah lake level click HERE, past and forecasted lake levels click HERE. Reminder that when you ski the club course you need to fix any missing buoys BEFORE you ski and make sure everything is up when you leave. Course supplies are in the dock box, if you need a key email Garn at garnski@yahoo.com and if you see or have problems with the course email Tim Peterson at waterskinude@yahoo.com.

The number 2 and 4 spots on the wait list are now up for bid and they have all been emailed. You are guaranteed to get into the club if you are in one of the top three spots on the wait list since the club lets in three new members each year, with people passing every year at the top of the wait list the #4 spot will very likely get in as well.
