Attention AWSA W4/M4, W5/M5 Skiers

The American Water Ski Association plans to have the programming done very soon regarding the skiers who have moved back to Women 4/Men 4 from Women 5/Men 5. AWSA has been working on it since the 76th GOODE Water Ski National Championships and has run into a number of complications that should be ironed out very soon. AWSA wants to make sure all scores from Women 5/Men 5 transfer back to Women 4/Men 4 so your rankings are not affected. Right now if you posted any scores in Women 4/Men 4 since Aug. 11 you will show up in both Women 4/Men 4 and Women 5/Men 5 rankings, but your ranking average in Women 4/Men 4 is not 100 percent accurate just yet. The National cutoff averages also will be rerun once skiers are in the proper division.
