Can you send it to me or get me a clean PDF. It is time to petition USA Water Ski to revert to a more sensible set of rules

    I have a 78/79 rulebook. A total of 36 pages. I'll scan it an email it to you.

    Well before the 70's, but here are a few:
    1956 & 1958

    The rulebook added 100 pages from 1956 to 2016... 15 pages to 115. Is that unreasonable?

    I don't think we want the 9"-12" turn buoys, though.

    @MISkier a few modern changes would need to be made.

    @MattP no changes! Old trick values, too, and only 2 flips. :-) ... and I want my 15% bonus for ski held over head.

    I like the one where if you are a AWSA member you cant ski in a televised tournament that is not sanctioned by AWSA. It doesnt say what they can do to you if you did.

    Good thing @jdarwin tournaments arent going to be on TV

    Bottom line is we need to go back to just junior boys and boys. I was robbed of my junior boys Hawaiian Alaskan trick record when we changed to boys one two three. I have been emotionally scarred ever since.

    Let us now analyze the sensitive youth, @horton and his desire to regress. Vat happened before you were robbed of that record? Think back...

    In the time period from the 50s or 60s, a lot of things were added, like several new
    divisions. Boat timing for SL and JU. Diagrams and tables. Centerline and gate SL
    video. 3 meter jumping; video jumping measuring. Course dimension tolerances.
    And, I'm 'responsible' for several things.

    Ahhhh, und now zee target of @horton's transference comes into focus.

    There are likely many old Rule Books stored at USAWS. But, the place is currently in a
    state of upheaval, with the Big Move to Lake Myrtle in Auburndale starting to happen.

    Well, farther back than requested, but how about the 1958 Rules? Or 1956?

    @Edbrazil I know you are able to shorten your own links. Please do so!

    @horton Thought I did that by following the "Link" icon. However, here are the links to
    the 1956 and 1958 Rulebooks presented in plain text:
