COME SKI TOO: We need LOTS of water skiers to make this happen.  Will need pyramid climbers and bases, ballet skiers (boys and girls) and jumpers (preferably not brand new jumpers as the drivers need successful jumps).  Driver tested skills include pulling a 12 person ballet hot dock line (twin rig NSSA certification), 8 person hot dock line (inboard NSSA certification), 2 three-tier pyramids (twin rig), 1 three tier pyramid (inboard) and a jumper over the jump (twin and inboard).   Please come and practice your pyramid, hop dock (ballet line) and jump skills that morning.  Arrive at 8am ready to ski.
