BallOfSpray is proud to announce that NorCal MasterCraft has signed on as the title sponsor of the NorCal MasterCraft BallOfSpray Cash Prize. The event will be held September 22 - 23 at Bell Acqua Lake 3 in Rio Linda California.

Pro and amateur skiers alike will compete for $6,000 in prize money. The event is comprised of 2 rounds of prelims and a final. Every competitor will ski 3 times and every competitor has an opportunity to take home prize money. The top 16 skiers at each event will compete for $3,000 in a head-to-head final and the remaining skiers will compete for an additional $3,000 in a handicap final.

General Notes and Rules

  1. To be eligible for the handicap round, a skier must have scores from 3 or more different USAWS tournaments in the previous 12 months
  2. Handicaps will be calculated from each skier's USAWS 12 month 3 score average
  3. BallOfSpray reserves the right to tweak individual handicaps and entry qualifications as needed
  4. Non USAWS skiers who can provide documentation of scores from other federations will be admitted at the discretion of the event organizer

All scores will be entered into the Cash Prize Score Book without regard to boat speed. The values for 34 MPH scores will be used for 36 mph and 32 mph skiers.

  • Example: 4 @ 38 off = 100 buoys at 34mph and at 36 mph and at 32 mph

Seeding for the Head to Head will be as follows

  1. Skiers with the 8 highest scores from prelims will take seeds 1 through 8
  2. Skiers with the highest combined scores from rounds 1 and 2 (but not one of the 8 highest scores) will take seeds 9 through 16

All rules are subject to change

Entries are non-refundable unless the event fills. Entry fees will only be refunded when a skier from the waiting list replaces a canceled entry.

The entry fee is $200

    @MarkM it looks like you are in town for the week. Let me know if you need a place to ski or NorCal tour guide input.

    webcast?
  • HortonHorton Posts: 25,517 Administrator
    @APB
    There will be a semi experimental unofficial webcast. Basically somebody that's learning to do it has volunteered to give it a go. I'll pass out the URL when the time is close. It would be far better if you would just get on a plane and get your butt out here and ski the event

    By the way we have a couple spots left if anybody wants to ski the event. If I haven't said this enough times over the years you don't have to be a pro level skier to enjoy the event and possibly win money. The whole point is to have fun with a wide variety of skill levels.

    @MikeT
    Those are good questions. As for local hotels hopefully someone local will chime in. You do not want to stay too close to the site unless you are looking for hookers and meth.

    I will send out an official email about order of events and stuff sometime next week. Bottom line is we all ski twice Saturday and then drink beer. Everyone skis third round Sunday.

    There will be practice Friday. Noon-ish until dinner-ish. I will have to check with Mr. Coffee to find out exactly when we have to off the lake.

    @MikeT : For hotels, it depends what you're looking for. Downtown Sacramento is only about 10 or 15 minutes away from the site. There's plenty of nice hotels there including the Hyatt which is right across from the capitol and my personal favorite which is the new Kimpton Sawyer Hotel. Those places are pretty pricey, but they're nice. If you're looking for something cheaper and closer, I'd look in the Natomas area. There's a bunch of chain hotels there. As Horton said, stay away from Rio Linda and Del Paso Heights.
  • HallpassHallpass Posts: 118 Baller
    There are some pretty cool/hip hotels downtown Sac - a bunch of boutiques, as well as some of the traditional Hyatt, Hilton, etc. Natomas is probably closest to Bell Acqua and not in rough neighborhood. Natomas hotels will probably be listed as "Sacramento Airport" if you are a club member of any of the hotels and doing a search. In Natomas you have most the second tier of chains such as Hampton Inn(Hilton), Four Points (Sheraton), and Holiday Inn Express (IHG). Lincoln/Rocklin has a lot of the same types of second tier, big chain, hotels and is just a bit farther from the ski site, but further from Airport or downtown. The hotels near Old Town Sacramento are cool, but still get close to full rate on weekends. I'm a Hilton guy and stay at the Hampton in Natomas, or the Embassy Suites Old Town. I stayed at Hampton a few weeks back, and it was about a 10-15 min drive to Bell Acqua. FWIW

    The Crowne Plaza on Madison Ave is very close and nice & reasonably priced. If you want unique you can stay downtown on the Delta King boat. Natomas has some good options too. Wherever you stay, DO NOT leave your gear in the car! Unless you want to borrow a ski from Horton.
