Another Great ! Webcast by the team at TWBC for the Mastercraft Slalom Pro Event, fantastic for the sponsors and the sport, it has come a long way from the early days but now the commentating and with the likes of Wade Cox and others interacting with the skiers is awsome, would be great if some sports bars could be persuaded to put it up on their screens.
Hats Off to Vince and the Team.

    This should be picked up by a network sports station and broadcast for all to see. Excellent quality and super commentary that I think the general public would enjoy.
    Superb job!!

    I completely agree the broadcasts continue to get better and better. Great views from the boat today. Now can we work on the audio levels just a bit?

    It is so very good! Great job to everyone at TWSB!

    Someone with clout really needs to write in to ESPN. I’m mean things like marble racing and Scandinavian death diving gets all kinds of air time now. That’s just ridiculous.

    It’s particularly cool to see your name on “national” tv as you have won a D3 ski of your choice! Thanks TWBC! Psyching!

    Great job again TWBC!

    TWBC is fantastic. I love Tony, Wade and the others with the job they do, from commentary to video quality. I would have a bit of a concern that moving to a network, while potentially providing a cash infusion, might distract and consequently lose some of the focus that Tony and crew have.
  • ALPJrALPJr Posts: 2,302 Mega Baller
    Could it be boiled down to a 60 minute show for a TV broadcast?
  • MinelickskierMinelickskier Posts: 36 Baller
    Yes they made it very enjoyable to watch...I stayed glued to it most of the week end! Thanks to all!

    Great Job TWBC! One small thing I would like to see added is the line length shown on the REPLAY flag. It is initially shown when the skier pulls out for the pass, but when the replay is shown it is not listed.

    I do wonder if a chain of sports bars took it onboard, and various people like of budweiser or others were shown footage they could use it in adverts or promote their beer etc, in the sports bars.
    TWBC could be the saviour of water skiing, we needed people with more personalties to move forward, personalties were starting to show through during the webcast, with everybody willing to contibute, exciting times, if the team can keep this thing going, I forsee great opportunities.

    If people are prepared to sit and watch 60+ laps of F1 racing, surely the sport of water skiing has a bit more to offer, entertainment wise.

    Awesome job, every time by TWBC.
    I would be ok with future broadcasts only noting rope length in meters versus feet and inches "missing", and having to explain.
    All metric, 2021!
  • HortonHorton Posts: 29,738 Administrator
    @Zman I get a lot of shit for talking feet off and not metric. If you ski L tournaments chances you are you know the metric but much of America still thinks in feet off. If you want to alienate potential fans do all know metric.

    Just an observation on line length, stateside both metric and feet off are confusing to non tournament (new) skiers or observers (fans, friends, family). A shame that actual length in feet is not the US standard (watch the Coors light Michigan clip) which makes the explanation of line length relative to buoy distance from center easy to grasp.

    TWBC does do a great job on the broadcast, keep up the excellent work.

    My wife watched most of the Swiss pro and all slalom rounds of the MC Pro. She is not a skier any more, her interest in skiing has faded and stoped skiing about 7 years ago.
    She watched with a genuine interest, commented on skiers and their style and she even asked me what “safety check” is 😊.
    I wasn’t expecting this, so TWBC must be doing something that does look interesting and not only to skiers.
