All club members who show up AND help out on the 18th will be given their choice of a club t-shirt from www.cafepress.com/utahwaterski Remember it is now required that each member attend at least one Adopt-a-Park service project every two years or go down on your own and ask what you can do.

Other Utah skiers included Jeff Milford, Mike Parsons, Dave Goode, Bryce Tolman, Laurie Liddell, Dave South, and Chris Millicum. Jeff is a former member of our club who is now a member/owner out at Sunten. Jeff won the Mens 3 division running 2 @ 39! Great skiing! And Bryce Tolman who skies at Calls Fort in Honeyville took 2nd place in the Mens 4 division. Dave Goode also took 2nd place in the Mens 5 division.
Our personal club coach (at least we like to think he is) Marcus Brown won the Open division running 1 @ 41 off.
Congratulations to all the skiers and everyone who took part. It was a weekend of great skiing and much fun.

Congratulations to the above skiers. They represented our club well. They set an example and standard for the rest of us to follow. We have about 60 members in our club. Yet only seven attended the tournament? More of us (and I'm talking to myself as well) need to get more involved and participate in these events. We have another tournament coming up on Saturday July 31st. This one is even paid for by the club (there goes the I-can't-afford-it excuse)! Lets see if more of us can show up for this tournament. We have 3 1/2 weeks to practice. Let's go skiing!

Utah Waterski Club was privileged to have Marcus Brown's Face To Face Tour roll into town this past June 17th and 18th for two chuck full days of clinics and skiing. Course One at Utah Lake was the site of Marcus's first tour stop in Utah. All I can say is "WOW!!" If you missed this clinic, you really missed out. Not only is Marcus Brown one of the best skiers in the world, he's also one of the best coaches in the world as well. Out of all the clinics that I have attended, this one stands head and shoulders above them all. Hopefully we can get Marcus back for another tour stop. Everybody who attended the clinic couldn't say enough about Marcus, Jenny, and the quality of his coaching. It was definitely money well spent.

For 2010, a trial year of this new program, we will have available one male and one female scholarship open to anyone 24 years of age or younger who is not a current member of the club. The application will be reviewed on the junior’s interest in skill development and commitment to water skiing and the Utah Water Ski Club. It is highly recommended that you are on the club wait list before you apply. If approved for the scholarship you would have full access to the clubs facilities and a full rotation like a regular member. If awarded the scholarship you would be required to compete in three sanctioned USA Water Ski tournaments in 2010 and complete 10 hours of UWSC service. Click here for the application that is due by May 31st 2010.
