Anybody know what speed they will be skiing at?
Time spent on the water is time well spent.

    my guess is they go 36 because that is the pro speed, in order to see if Maple can still hang with or beat pro skiers I think you would have to do it at pro speed. Making the pros slow down doesn't make much sense. Besides that I've heard it is "easier" (by easier I mean slightly less impossible) to run 41 off at 36 because the ski carries speed out to the ball better rather than slowing down and drifting in narrow of the ball.

    "Slightly less impossible". I like that.

    I've heard that 35 is a nice blend for 41. But it makes sense that it would be 36.

    Do not underestimate THE MAN. Even though he is 50, my money is on Andy

    @horton. Can't you set up on-line gambling for this sort of thing? If not at least take a poll.

    If Andy places in the top 10 at this Acapulco Invitational Pro will he continue to be eligible for any more BIG DAWGS in the next 3 years. I think he is signed up for Moomba Big Dawg, and his schedule says he will be at others. AAWWW its getting interesting now. This Acapulco tournament isn't on the official list, so maybe its OK if he places, (all it takes is top 10) if he runs 39 @ 36 places in the top 10 will he still be eligible for BD. Maybe Greg will chime in on this. Or maybe the Acapulco Tournament isn't rated, even though there is money for the winners. Maybe its an exhibition???

    No, I do not think that this is a sanctioned event. Just a friendly tournament of some friends going out for a set or two to see who the best man is. No judges/officals.

    That is awesome! I wish you the best of luck!!! Take it to 'em I'm hoping at 56 I get the opportunity to ski against both you & Kris at a Big Dawg Stop, now that will be a treat!!!

    The BallOfScores feed is all set up and ready to go when the event starts. It looks like the event is moved up to Wednesday & Thursday. You can follow live scores in the BallOfScores iPhone app, on the front page of the website(click home), and it will be on the side of the forum where Instagram usually is.

    The great thing about having the Masters and the BOS ATL ProAm in your back yard is seeing these guys go at it mutiple times. I would live to be there tomorrow that's for sure, but I will settle for those two events this year. Hopefully next year I will make it down for this event.

    @thager you can change it again with another click but I gave you a Silly Panda badge anyway
