This Saturday the New Melones waterski club will have the 1st meeting in a long time due to the drought that has emptied the states 5th largest reservoir. Currently the lake is 82% (or so) full and rising with the massive snow pack starting to melt fast! There is a perfect spot for a course tucked away and protected on the south end, the big however, is the old course is destroyed and needs to be replaced.
The biggest bummer is there are very few people interested in the club left to participate in the expenses and labor it will take to get a course in the water. I will attend and pitch in as well as help in any way I can, however, in the past 4 years I have enjoyed the private lake experience and will continue to spend most of my time there with the goal of running -32 this year!
Yesterday a fellow skier brought up a used course or reaching out here for ideas to build a new one on a budget for the deep water floating type on Melones? Any tips, links or leads to what is needed is appreciated and will be passed on to those in charge of the club, thanks!
Lastly, anyone in the Bay to Sacramento area in need of a site I can put you in touch with the folks to get a membership.
