Utah Water Ski Club annual meeting/activity

The annual Utah Water Ski Club meeting/activity will be held at 6:30pm February 10th at the South Town Expo Center ( 9575 S. State Street ). The meeting will be held in Room 200D in the lobby in conjunction with the boat show. The UWSC will pay for all club members entrance into the show and any immediate family members. If you would like to go into the boat show before the meeting go to the information desk before 6 pm to pick up your ticket.
The reason for the annual meeting is to elect a new board and socialize with other members, a light meal will be served starting at 6:30pm. The board would like to see everyone attend including family members. Please reply back to this email by February 8th and let us know if you plan on attending and how many are in your group so the board can plan the food and handouts. If we don't hear back from you by the 8th then the board will assume you did not get this e-mail and will have to take the time to call.

If you would like to be on the board in 2011 please contact Scot Chipman (801) 368-2981, the board only meets four times a year and does not pay dues. 

2011 membership cards and new boat stickers will be handed out at the meeting/activity if you bring a filled out application (click here to download application), a check for $125 payable to the Utah Water Ski Club, and proof of ACTIVE USA Water Ski membership.
