    Default Wisconsin Tournaments

    Today I took a day trip to Wisconsin.

    First stop was the site where the national show ski championships will be held in August. The site is located on the Rock River in the town of Janesville. As the picture shows, no action today and for good reason.

    Two hours north of Janesville on Wazeecha Lake, my second stop today, the state was holding its four-day ski show championship tournament. Twenty-seven teams are competing for the state title. First time seeing a show. Tons of talent: footing, jumping, entertaining, ballet, comedy, and costumes. Got to see performances by the Aquanuts and Water Bugs.

    Next stop...

    ...was the state’s three-event (slalom, trick, jump) championship meet, held on a private lake in the town of Oconomowoc. Nowhere near the crowd that I had just left at the ski show tournament. Hardly any spectators were at the three-event tournament. I was surprised given that it was a state meet. The “crowd” was pretty much limited to athletes, officials, and a few family members and friends.

    Lots of driving, but it was a fun day. Hoping to get back to Wisconsin in August to watch the national show ski championships.

    Stuart, awesome to see you were there. I was buried in that crowd and saw the same shows. I take in a few shows every year. Some clubs always take something to a new level. More people, bigger boats

    The only thing I don't like about these ski shows is they don't want to see a Moomba. It has to be a MC, Nautique or Response. I get a little mad at them down here. Don't even mention the word Moomba here. Bunch of crap if you ask me.

    Jack - I will give you a run down on the tow boats used for the national tournament. Bet you there will be more than one team using a Moomba. i say that because at the state championship meet Moomba was the tow boat of choice for at least one team. Maybe more, but I was there for only a couple of hours of the three-day event. - Stuart

    Stuart- I wont be at Nationals. I'll probably watch a little bit of it online. Its suppose to be on a webcast.

    When it comes to Moomba boats at the waterski show tournaments, they are coming around. Of course the boat will be the Outback. Although I did see a Outback V once. As the Moomba brand gains more of a following like Nautique, MC, or Malibu; you will see more of them. The big three have just been doing it longer.

    What brand teams get depends on their finances, local dealer support (and what brand that dealer carrys), and any manufacturer deals. Sometimes they are able to get seasonal leases or demo's. They certainaly are not picking a boat for its features such as stereos, towers, graphics, balllast.

    Every team has one of these though; http://www.dyna-ski.com/20club.html

    Actually the Aquanuts use a Moomba with 3 outboard 150's for their show on Twin Lakes, WI.
