-I'm very happy to announce that Mystic lakes has put together over $40k in cash prize money to bring back a 6 event pro event at the GOODE US Nationals. The tradition of the US Open at nationals was always great and we are hoping to brand this new event called the America's Cup Invitational into just that and maybe eventually bring back the US Open, but after 2 successful night jump events, this year we are adding slalom and trick. All Level 9 and 10 US only skiers will be invited to ski. The open divisions of GOODE Nationals will be the prelims with finals taking place Friday night from 6-10 pm for all 6 events. All 3 boat companies stepped up huge to support the event as well as many other sponsors. More info to come at usawaterski.org

    Meaning no overall, correct. Specifically meaning no cash prize or awards for overall. Just individual events right @JeffSurdej

    This is a big deal in a lot of ways. Thanks to all who were involved in getting this done and to the sponsors who financially supported it.

    @JeffSurdej so, asking for a friend: b3-m10,G3-w10, if they have a level 9 or higher?
  • JeffSurdejJeffSurdej Posts: 337 USAWS Official
    @Drago yes, as long as you have an open rating, i.e eligible for L9 you can enter the America's Cup.

    Very cool @JeffSurdej Fun for those that get to ski in it and great spectators as well. If evolving our nationals format is that big of a hurdle, why not build around it. Keep it up.

    @JeffSurdej This is amazing, thank you for helping put this together!

    For us wannabe pro skiers - how many people make it to the finals? Do we need to enter as a separate tournament? If so do we pay two entry fees for the same nationals round?
  • JeffSurdejJeffSurdej Posts: 337 USAWS Official
    @bishop8950 @AdamCord thanks for the positive remarks, we are pumped, just like the good ole US Open days, this is just as much for the nationals skiers as it is for the pro's. Anyways we should have the finals breakdown ASAP, leaning towards 4, maybe a bit more in MS and MJ.

    Very Cool .It's a great step .I just wish the overall dollars were higher. At least equal to the individual payouts to make it rewarding for those that will compete in more than their best event.
