    #10 Did you mean secede? If so I agree since a large number of them use the metric system and ski for foreign federations.

    @MS doesn''t drink beer anymore, or any less. Only IPA.
    Stir vigorously then leave!

    The only pure ski tug at the 2019 Seattle Boat Show will be in the Nautique display.

    @Rednucleaus there is a good chance you will get to see a new Prostar at the Seattle show.

    @lpskier Wow. I wasn't thinking that someone could win this thread so early on! Impressive combination of insight and humor.

    @JeffSurdej
    Is the new trick rule going in effect this year? Or after nationals. If that's the case Horton will not make the trek to south Florida for the love fest!

    @Jody_Seal good ?, I'll find out, IWWF actually passed the rule and they tend to make rules on calender years so I do believe IWWF will be allowing this now, I don't think the AWSA rules proposal had any stipluations of this beginning after nationals since it has no effect on division, ages, rankings qualification etc, so I'm pretty sure if this passes its a go now.

    @Horton: In the way back, ?early 1970s?, Wayne Grimditch was apparently working on a 2-ski Wake 720FF. Where he would wrap the rope around himself twice. Don't know if he ever tried it in a tournament. Now, according to the Rules, that kind of wrap is a no-no.

    In the 1970s, Peter Knapp had a 2-ski flip in his run, toward the end. Landing tended to end up in survival mode.

    @Jody_Seal IWWF rules take effect feb 21, 2019, 60 days after publication so if AWSA passes this for class C events as well I would assume it will take effect at the same time.

    @MS Absolutely unlikely with this knee, but thanks!

    @Jordan Appreciate making your list (twice!), but I strongly suggest taking the other side of that bet. It's possible to get a little better at slalom from understanding physics and math and figuring out to apply it. But there are no breakthroughs on the horizon. :(

    @Jordan
    It is "BallOfSpray" never "Ball of Spray". What do I have to do to protect my trademarks?
