The following is a message from Phil Mishler on the National Ski League. For more information please email Phil at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our girls and few others did this last year and it added some fun and competition during the mid-week of practice for us. It is well run with different teams competing against each other throughout the country with a handicap scoring. I also thought it might be a cheaper way for the college skiers to get some scores posted.
Thank you for your continued interest in the Midwest Waterski League. We have opened registration for the 2018 season for all of our returning teams and skiers. We have included a $5 per skier discount code ($15 per skier instead of the $20 regular price) (use the code “Inaugural”) for all of our skiers who skied with us in our inaugural season. The discount code is good for one week from today (through Tuesday, May 8, 2018). After that it will be the full $20 rate. Please start registering now. Each skier can individually register and pay with a credit card through the on-line check out process. We are hoping this makes registration go smoother all around, but if you should encounter issues please let us know ASAP. Any new skier who plans to join your team from last year is welcome to use the discount code as well.
You can register through our website (www.midwestskileague.com). The website has detailed information on the schedule, format, rules, scoring, handicaps, etc, so please take a few minutes to familiarize yourself with it. Competition will begin on June 8.
Please send questions to email@example.com. We will be opening up registration to new teams shortly. If you know of new teams that want to register right away just let us know. Thanks.

Four Indiana skiers dusted off their skis and snuck down to Florida and skied in an early spring tournament at Eden Lake outside Fort Meyers. Well actually several were already there. This is the lake that Prissy Edwards has been out this winter.
Kim Contos scored 4 buoys at 35 off, @34mph; Mike Patterson 3 buoys at 28 off, 34mph; Don Bucher ½ buoy at 28 off, 32mph; and Les Bender 6 buoys at 15 off, 30mph. Excellent skiing for early spring.
Hey Spring Breakers and Florida bound skiers. Eden Ski Lake near Ft. Myers is holding their very first tournament on March 31st, 2018. Our own Indiana Hall of Famer Prissy Edwards and hubby Elmer have been working all winter at Eden Ski Lake and want to welcome any and all to their first tournament. Coach Arthur Havas and Prissy have been preparing the site for both skiers and spectators to this event. They are hoping for some big names to appear as there will be an "R" section in addition to "C" class and grassroots. From what Prissy tells me, most of the officials will be from the Mid-West. Registration info for the event is on the USA Water Ski web site. If you can't make the tournament date, schedule a session at Eden Ski Lake and enjoy this premier water ski site. Questions....give Prissy a call @ 765-610-7552.
The Indianapolis Boat, Sport, and Travel Show is in progress and continues to February 25th. This show is the best of its kind in the Mid-West. Pinecrest Marine donated a spot to water skiers allowing us to pass out flyers in front of a beautiful blue Mastercraft Prostar. Stop by and thank Mike Gross and the Pinecrest Team.
