Skiers make a splash
Stanthorpe forms its very own waterskiing club
WATERSKIIERS in town have a new club to call their own.
The Stanthorpe Waterski Club has come together as a place for local skiiers to meet and learn from eachother.
Club president Tony Webb said the club was looking for anyone who was interesting in waterski sport or wanted to learn more about waterskiing to sign up.
He hoped by increasing membership they would be able to bring professional coaches to Storm King Dam.
“A few of the kids are pretty handy, and I think they just need some expert coaches which will help them out immensely,” Webb said.
“By getting numbers we can get better coaches up here to help the kids and the parents out.”
He said the club was open to anyone of any age group.
“The one good thing about waterskiing is when you go into a competition it’s probably one of the only sports where you don’t go in age groups, you go in division.
“So me ,being 43 years old, could be up against a 10-year-old.”
Webb said once the club was up and running they hoped to have their own competitions and fun day events.
They also planned to purchase a Slalom course for Storm King Dam.
The Stanthorpe Waterski club will be have a meeting at the RSL tonight at 7pm.
