We were able to find the slalom course this weekend on the public lake that we use. It's actually in great shape, has a mini course and the regular course but I've got a question regarding course etiquette. When we found it, there was a red buoy right in the middle of where you would enter the boat lane on each end of the course. I'm assuming this is to keep the majority of folks out of the course who aren't skiing it. What's the etiquette here? Should I wait until people are actually skiing the course and ask them or is this common practice to block the boat lane when the course isn't in use? If common practice, what's the protocol for removing the buoys and skiing? The marina owner said one of the boat slip renters puts the course in every year for folks to use so I'd like to treat it with respect. What would be the best way to proceed?
