Buoys, BBQ, and Beer is back...and this time you’re invited! It’s going down Sunday, December 10th at 1:00 PM and the rules are simple. Every skier gets 6 passes to impress our panel of judges. A champion is crowned in each of four fun categories: smoothest pass, hardest crash, scrappiest completed pass, and best performance! So grab your swerve stick and come on down to the most fun ski event you’ve never skied in. We are asking for a minimum $25 donation for entry to help support a good friend and great ambassador to the sport, Mark Boender. Mark has developed a Pancreatic disease and is in need of our help and support. All entries and money donated will go to Mark and the fight to cure his disease, so feel free to donate as much as you like. Your donation will get you a ski ride, sweet t-shirt, delicious BBQ, and cold beer provided by our friends at Big Storm Brewing. Email travis@theboardingschool.com to sign up. Stoked to see you there!

    Wow, and I always said I’d never ski in a tournament. Winner for scrappiest pass right here! I’ll be there.

    @Zman it starts at 1, should run till about 6 including dinner. But, if you want to hang out and drink beer for a while after, I'm sure that's an option.

    @Orlando76 good thing this isn't a tournament. It's a contest of sorts, like one you would do with your dumb friends. Not saying your friends are dumb, but all of mine are, so just making an assumption.

    Any truth to the rumor that the 50th Anniversary Prostar will make its debut here?

    @swc5150 I have no idea what you’re talking about. Is that a thing?

    All 2018 ProStars are 50th Anniversary Edition. I would give you a Panda but I don't have the energy.

    @Horton Lol, you won't give me a panda because there's a good chance I'm right. TBS has a "special" X Star there right now that they won't show...safe assumption it's a 50th anniversary edition?? Obviously all 18's have that little 50th badge, but if a special edition isn't on the way, it's a travesty. '88 Platinum PS, '98 flag graphics, '08 Anniversary PS, and 2018?? Come on man!

    @Horton Not exactly. Just as all 1993 boats had a "25th Anniversary" center cap on the steering wheel and often "25th Anniversary" stickers on the windshield all 2018 MasterCrafts (Prostars, NXTs, XTs, and X series) have a 50th Anniversary badge on the transom this does not make them 50th Anniversary Editions. Anniversary edditions were released in 1993 for the 25th, 1998 for the 30th, 2003 for the 35th, 2008 for the 40th. Often these boats were limited in production according to the anniversary - 25 made for the 25th, 35 made for the 35th etc.

    Ok whatever - enough off topic talk about the 50th anniversary MC.

    Back to the topic at hand. Buoys, BBQ and Beer

    Mark is a great guy, he always offers assistance and encouragement at every tournament and @Shell and I are really sorry to hear about his condition. We can't make the event but would love to contribute to help his cause. Is there a way to donate from remotely??
  • theboardingschooltheboardingschool Posts: 58 Water Ski Industry Professional
    @RAWSki if you would like to mail a check you can make it payable to Mark Boender and send it to:

    The Boarding School
    C/O Mark Boender
    19454 East Colonial Drive
    Orlando, Fl 32820

    If you want to use a card, I can send an invoice from Square, and you can put in any amount you like. I just need an email.

    Thanks so much!

    Same thing Chef23 said. Can't make it but want to help. If everyone can pitch in a little it can add up to a lot.

    Edit: Oh, and I will take a rain check on the Buoys, BBQ & Beer for next time I am near O-town.
  • theboardingschooltheboardingschool Posts: 58 Water Ski Industry Professional
    First off, I want to say thanks to all of those who have reached out to come ski, or just to donate to help out Mark. It's really cool to see. We are looking forward to have all of you out to our little slice of heaven.

    We are getting close to our limit on skiers for B, B, & B. So let me know if any of you would like to ski. We could definitely accommodate more for eating delicious BBQ, and drinking cold beer though. Anyone that would like to come, please let me know.

    Thanks,
    Travis

    Does this sound like a great time or what! I wish I could participate, but skiing has been put on hold until Spring for West Shore Waterski Club up here in West Michigan. Mark is a great ambassador of the sport, a good friend and an awesome guy to boot, we are sending our donation down. Thanks for putting this on @theboardingschool !

    @theboardingschool, I mailed my donation today. I can't be there in person, but Mark's good friend @Rook is scheduled to make the trip and ski. If you want to consider some of my donation for a couple extra passes to help him shake off the rust from the end of our season, that would be cool. I would say to use that money to cover his beer consumption, but I didn't send that much.

    Thanks for hosting such a great event.
