Annual Meeting/Activity

The annual Utah Water Ski Club meeting/activity will be held Thursday February 9th at 6pm in room 200C at the South Towne Expo Center in conjunction with the Utah Boat show. All members including family members are invited to attend and will be given free entrance into the boat show (12 and under are FREE), a light meal will be served starting at 6pm. If you would like to go into the boat show before the meeting go to the information desk/will call, they will have the club member list to verify your membership with a photo ID. If you have not done so email utahwaterskiclub@gmail.com and let the board know if you plan to attend or not, if you do plan to attend let the board know how many in your family will be eating so the board can plan the food. You can also RSVP on the club's Facebook page as long as you make note of how many will be eating.

To help the club save time and mailing costs please renew ($125) your membership before the annual meeting so that you can receive you club membership card (card good for discounts) and club sticker for you boat. All of the information on how to renew is posted at http://utahwaterski.blogspot.com/p/members.html The club strongly encourages everyone to renew with the Venmo app (preferred since there are ZERO fees) or PayPal (you don't need a PayPal account) and then just email a scanned copy or picture from your phone of the renew application agreement to utahwaterskiclub@gmail.com. If you have been in the club 20+ years AND are 60+ years old (verify first with VP of Membership) you can renew as a emeritous member for $25.

A reminder that Utah Water Ski Club members are required to be USA Water Ski supporting ($35) or active ($80) members. If you are going to ski in any USA Water Ski sanctioned tournaments in 2017 including the Utah State Championships August 19th at Calls Fort which is free for club members and family members you will need to be a active USA Water Ski member for insurance reasons. To renew your USA Water Ski membership go to www.usawaterski.org/members.

Great news, if the wet winter weather continues we will be back skiing course #3 this year!, In 2004 the lake levels were very close to the 2016 levels which hit -7.00 both years in the fall, by the summer of 2005 the lake level was -1.00. This years snow pack numbers are currently on track with the 2005 numbers, lets hope the wet weather continues.



The club is always looking for volunteers to serve on the clubs board, board members do not pay dues. The club board only meets four times a year, usually only twice in person with the others by email. If you would like to serve on the club board in 2017 email scotchipman@gmail.com who would like to step down in 2018.

happy Skiing!
