    I ski six day's per week, just about year round. As much as I think tournaments are a wonderful thing, they're just not why I ski right now.

    Not this year, but normally.

    I skied more tournaments than normal this year because regionals and nationals were within driving distance for me (17 long hours to San Marcos) so I attended both. Normally I ski about 4, but I think I am up to 8 this year, but several are 2 day, 2 separate tournaments at the same site. The downside is we have a beautiful lake, and I have spent more weekends on the road this summer than I have on my home lake. It's been fun though. Next year I'll probably keep it to 6 (depending on the outcome of my upcoming spinal fusion).

    ski as many days as I can during MN summer. Family and other commitments keep me off the tournament circuit -- would love to ski more of them.

    @Texas6, your comments are what I wanted in the "other than above" in the poll. I wanted to hear about other involvement. This, in my mind, further defines the other thread about "increasing participation."

    I only ski fun class tournaments. Does that count?

    We usually ski 4-6 but this summer was less than that and the next few years will probably be similar due to my son's lacrosse schedule during the summer.

    Ski quite a few tournaments a year, I end up being some kind of official. Wish my skiing was better, but really enjoy the company at the tournaments.

    Still ski 3-5 times per week, bu haven't skied a tournament in 3 years. We only have 1 non-collegiate tournament on our lake each year, and I don't want to waste my time & money traveling out of state to other tournaments. I can get a lot more skiing in by staying home and skiing on my own lake.

    My goal is to ski 3x a week and bike 40+ miles 2x a week. I ski in 2-3 tournaments a year at our member lake. I am an amateur rated judge and working on getting a scorer rating.

    Also, I only started skiing in tournaments in 2013. I have been skiing on private lakes for the last 18+ years. The change, I joined a lake that hosted tournaments.

    In season, I ski typically 3-4 times per week. Hope to start running some tournaments in the novice series next season and see where it takes me.

    I ski almost daily when I am not away for work. Not a member of AWSA as I'm new to the country and not really a tourny skier. Just an red ball chaser!
    Life's about working hard and then having fun on the water!
    I am - are you?

    14 tournaments this year. Lots of time at the lake pulling friends. Practice 5 days a week.
