Important Practice Announcement For GOODE Water Ski Nationals

Congratulations to qualified participants for the 76th GOODE Water Ski National Championships, to be held Aug. 7-11, 2018 at Mystic Lakes in Maize, Kansas. This year, the local organizing club will be hosting its sign-up for practice online as each participant registers for the tournament. It will be utilizing a Google Sheet that will serve as the official practice schedule and will be updated live by the Official Practice Coordinator.

The LOC asks that you please be patient with the practice coordinators and volunteers as this is a first time offering for online practice sign-ups. It is offering the online sign-up in an effort to offer a more organized fashion for running official practice.

The following are stipulations of the online practice module:

  • Sign-ups are offered to participants after they have already registered and paid for the 2018 GOODE Water Ski National Championships.
  • A link to the Google Sheet will be emailed to each skier after they complete registration.
  • Skiers will receive 4 passes in slalom, 2 passes in tricks, and 3 jumps and are limited to one practice pull per person in total.
  • Skiers shall pay $35/set to the online PayPal account 2018waterskipractice@gmail.com in order to be added to the practice sign-up.
  • The official scheduled practice day on all three lakes is Monday, Aug. 6.
  • Due to limited space and time on the lakes, practice will be offered only when events have been completed on each lake and on the scheduled practice day.
  • Each boat will have one assigned driver and one assigned rope handler. One pin person will be allowed during tricks only.
  • Every fifth time slot will be offered to an official.
  • Skiers will be limited to one practice ride; the practice coordinator reserves the right to give priority to skiers competing in the next day’s events, volunteer officials, and LOC volunteers.

All allotments will be designated live and spots will be filled as they are requested (per email time-stamp).
