    Congrats on your first tournament! While I will not be there personally, I know you will be in good hands. Alan Rossi would have been the first to greet you to the waterski community with a smile and hand shake. That tradition continues to this day. Have fun and don’t hesitate to ask anyone for answers to any questions you have. They will be happy to help.

    @Chris Rossi maybe we could do a Radar demo next year at the tournament?

    @jaypro do you know if there is anywhere nearby to get a practice ride on Friday?

    @ALPJr The course used for the tournament is in a protected no-wake zone that we can only use for one day a year (Saturday), but there is a public course in another portion of the same lake that anyone can ski with their own boat.

    Great tournament with GREAT people. The layout is "interesting" with a walk through the woods to get to the starting dock, but I think you'll really enjoy the entire experience!

    (Technically I haven't been there in several years, so I don't know for sure the layout is still as I described.)

    @Than_Bogan don't make fun of the Vermont Triathlon. 2 mile hike, 1 set of slalom and 1 mile swim!!

    One of my favorite tournaments - Site, location and the people are great.

    @Pat M - I figured it was your favorite because you return with a full cooler of VT IPA’s! Ski well everyone. Very fond memories of Al’s pep talk at that site after I’d blown my opener in the first two rounds.

    @Bdecker Ah Brian you know me to well. The site is dangerously close to getting some Heady Topper

    @Keith Menard and @Pat M , as a Waterbury resident and IPA lover, try the Frost beers...Lush and Plush are amazing!!
