    Thanks @markn . You and Jack get the credits for skiing. I was gifted with a friendlier handicap. 🙂. Dock party was a blast as usual. Fireworks, dancing, and various other silliness. Maybe next year you can take a nap and join us for midnight!

    Draged all day from late night. 4:30 p.m. enjoyed a hot cup of tea and hit the water with caffeine pushing me to go. It was a great way to end the day with my son giving me a pull. My boys are very good wakeboarders but one has taken up skin and skied his best set this past week. Sure he will chase me down at some point. Clermont Fl area spoiled for sure

    I worked my 15th straight New Year’s Day Bowl game but am retiring next week and will most definitely ski on January 1st next year. Happy New Year’s and great skiing to all!

    A little late to report but only "thumbs up" for Kevin Day of St. Louis. Keven organized his 36th annual Polar Bear Ski event at the Arch on the Mississippi River on New Years Day. The event strives to raise funds for the Missouri Disabled Water Skiers. Several skiers and wake boarders braved 30 degree water 35 degree air temperature and rain for the disabled water skiers!

    First time I’ve ever skied on New Years Day! 64 air, 50 water.
