    @Mark_Matis If I have to pay them with a credit card, the payment will be declined because the card was issued somewhere not in Australia.

    By the way, did you say they had footage electronically? Where? I went to the Moomba website, but they only had video from as far back as 2009. Nothing further back.

    Back in the 1980's, Melbourne channel HSV7 used to video the Moomba competition live,
    over several days. That must be archived somewhere. The video format there is PAL,
    and not NTSC. PAL is a little sharper, but nowhere near HD. Yes, I would start with the
    Victorian Water Ski Assn.

    I sent the Victorian Water Ski Assn. an email a week ago. No reply. I think it was because I used my iCloud email account to send the message. I will try again with my gmail account.

    Alright. I hope you guys won't be upset with my revival of this thread.

    As for Moomba '87, have made contact with the Victorian Water Ski Association, but they are still searching for footage of it. Fran Heynes tells me that the people who were on the commitee in '87 are no longer serving the association but they are the ones who have footage. They will check what they have. It worries me that they do not appear to keep their footage in an archive like the USA Foundation does.

    I think we have the TV recording of the 2000 Moomba masters. Also the Wade Cox instruction video which came with the CDX-1. Going to have to convert the vhs tapes then I will upload a link

    @monte99 So, how goes the conversion?

    I just watched the whole thing, it was just too much fun to stop. This is from Milan in 1977. https://goo.gl/X4vvqm.

    @Monte99 Have you finished up with the Moomba 2000/Wade Cox instruction video yet?

    He said he would upload it on Monday last week. I am getting very frustrated now.

    How can the Victorian Water Ski Association not keep tabs on their own old event footage? That really pisses me off! It's been two months and I still have not been helped!

    I don't know what to do anymore. I have tried everything. And nothing happened!!!
  • mbug90mbug90 Posts: 34 Baller
    Is there anyone else who has trick footage (preferably women's) from the 1980s to early 2000's that they can share with me immediately? I am getting really frustrated with the Victorian Waterski Association having not found Moomba 1987 yet.

    Also, Monte99 is having trouble converting the footage he promised. Somehow, his computer can detect copyrights on VHS casettes.

    Why does this have to be so difficult?!!

    @mbug90 you care but perhaps no one else cares. It seems like the readership here does not care.

    @mbug90 Try not being so brash, you will be more likely to get somewhere.

    The Victorian Water Ski Association is not responding to my follow up emails. :(

    But, I am not giving up.

    @mbug90 Keep nagging them, I'm sure it'll work eventually!
