    Smile Predator Bay Waterskiing World Championships Calgary Alberta Canada

    Well its just about here. Next weekend,at predator bay just a few miles south of Calgary the world waterskiing championships are finally coming.
    Pics in one of the local papers today shows some of the Canadian team practicing.Its should be awesome and reviews on the location that i have come across have a few of the pros saying its one of the best ski locations in the world if not The best going.
    A local promotor has this turning into a bit of a circus side show though in my mind as its chocked full of Bands and beer gardens, kids jumpers etc kinda putting the waterskiing to the back burner ,so to speak.
    Don't get me wrong i can and will enjoy the music, although the bands seem to be carryover bands from the recent Calgary Stampede. Just not my kinda music i guess. My teenage kids are looking forward too it.
    I'm hopeing in my travels to see, possibly meet some of the Big guns of the ski world. Chris Parrish , Jaret Lewellyn Freddie Krueger,the list goes on.
    Hopefully the weather holds out and all goes well, as i've had my tickets for months and can hardly wait,just haven't decided how much time off from work is gonna be required.

    Anyways just thought i'd put the word out and if interested check out the website on PREDATOR BAY it very well put together and has lots of side notes etc that are quite interesting.

    Mikey - In my lifetime, made it to only one major tournament. But it was well worth the six hour drive. So much to learn just by watching the best up close. They are so good. I hope you and the family can get there. If so, take a few pics. Would be great to see something. - Deerfield

    If skis weren't so big i'd just shove one down my pants. then if someone said anything about the bulge in my pants i could just say i'm so happy to see you. HA

    Actually you just need to be wearing your vest, and get a copy of a competitor # bib and walk around like your supposed to. In fact you may even attract some lovely young ladies looking to meet a famous skier
