Can you believe that David Marbaugh, a first time tournament participant, was the winner of the Hoosier Buoy Tour #1! As soon as he learned how to count to 6, he improved with each set! Second place went to David Miller and 3rd place went to Aaron Hutton. 18 skiers enjoyed the hospitality and smooth water at Brewski Lake. Thanks to Mastercraft and Malibu for providing ski boats for the event. The lake stayed busy after the awards with barefooterw, trikers, and even a tuber made their appearances. Next Hoosier Buoy Tour event will be at Boondocks Lake (Morton Lake) on July 5th.
