Anybody headed to Calgary for this event? Recent waterski mag had some cool coverage of it.

Rumour has it they will have a ferris wheel over 3 ball, so you can ride it while people are skiing, talk about a sick angle to watch skiing.

Saturday August 1st (PRACTICE/SETUP) thru Sunday August 9th (FINALS)

Re: 2009 World Water Ski Championships and DRENCHED Music Festival

I live a couple of hours south of Calgary.  It is very wet and cold.  Not the type of weather to showcase your Province.  It is cold enough I think I will wait for the weather to change, which is supposed to be after Sunday, to head back onto the water.  Last week was 90 degrees, sunny, and no wind.  Temperature and weather extremes are a problem in the area, especially in August.  Hoping for a beautiful day on Saturday when I head up to the finals.  If I get some good pictures I'll try posting.  Being Candian the cold weather might be home field advantage for those that still train in the area.  I think most of our pro compatriots now live in Orlando area so they will probably have no advantage.  I am thinking cold weather could really change the feel of the water and am interested to see if this plays a role in results.  I notice a big difference between our cold water and my brothers water in Texas.  Maybe for once being from Canada or England will be an advantage in a competition with the weather extremes we grow up in.

Re: 2009 World Water Ski Championships and DRENCHED Music Festival

Just got back from Worlds.  I live in Alberta and this was my first real tournament.  I was amazed by how nice the site was at Predator Bay and how fun it was to watch the slalom final.  I watched the Women's Trick which was cool but other than our own Canadian Girl winning was a little slow.

The Slalom final was amazing to watch even though a lot of the guys did not ski up to their usual standards.  I was amazed at how they could make a mistake and still recover and make it to the next ball by either getting riduculous angle or slaming the next turn.  The speed they get and control is absolutely amazing. 

Congrats to the winners.  Asher is an animal and pulled out a few turns that were amazing.  T Gas was awsome to watch and his OTF was ridculous.  I was maybe 100 feet from 2 ball when he went down and he was flying.  I didn't think he was going to stop until he hit the stands.   

Rossi was looking amazing until he got in trouble and I thought he was going to make it with an amazing turn where he through himself around 6 (which was amazing live) but lost it a boat length from the exit gate(sorry Chris, didn't mean to remind you).  I thought he was going to nail a few into the next pass he was skiing so well.  Rossi was clearly a fan favorite in the stands.  Everyone was in awe with his style and was very disappointed when he went down.  I think his popularity is a testament to all the work and effort on this site and willingness to share knowledge with average Joes like me.   

In conclusion I loved Worlds, loved the low key atmosphere of being able to stop and visit with the pros who were hanging out with the general public, and announcing was great with Marcus and the gang.  Marcus was great hanging out after taking pics with everyone.  He is an athlete easy to recognize so I think he gets mobbed the most.

Re: 2009 World Water Ski Championships and DRENCHED Music Festival

Chris, Does your third place finish at Worlds count towads the team overall score? I still can't believe that the USA Water Ski team does not support slalom, trick, or jump specialists like the other countries do!

Re: 2009 World Water Ski Championships and DRENCHED Music Festival

We totally agree.  Chris is a champion...and great ambassador for the sport.  We had the fortune to talk with him at the worlds and continue to be in awe of his humbleness and his ability.

We were amoung the many cheering loudly when he skied
