EDIT RIAL Ski club ‘shows’ its worth

Yarrawonga Chronicle - - Front Page -

It was great news to here that the Mul­wala Wa­ter Ski Club is set to host some of the best show skiers in the world af­ter win­ning its bid to host the 2020 Ski Show World Cham­pi­onships.

But it’s not by fluke this has hap­pened. The ski club has for many years built on its rep­u­ta­tion as be­ing one of, if not the most suc­cess­ful and largest wa­ter ski club in the south­ern hemi­sphere.

Na­tion­ally and in­ter­na­tion­ally the club has put Yar­ra­wonga Mul­wala on the map, at­tract­ing world class ath­letes for train­ing and events.

Since the club was es­tab­lished in 1982 it has hosted many national and international ski­ing events in­clud­ing the Ju­nior World Cham­pi­onships and the World Dis­abled Cham­pi­onships.

The Max Kir­win Ski Park has played a big part in at­tract­ing these events and was also im­por­tant in the 2020 Ski Show World Cham­pi­onships bid.

But also cru­cial to the suc­cess of the ski club are its ski­ing mem­bers.

Re­mark­ably the Aus­tralian Ski Show team of 35 fea­tured 24 skiers from the Mul­wala Wa­ter Ski Club and were only beaten by the might of the US team.

The team was headed up by lo­cals Brant Ryan and Pete O’Neill, the team’s two show di­rec­tors that have put on lo­cal and national ski shows in Mul­wala.

The hard work and ded­i­ca­tion of these mem­bers is shown with their suc­cess and abil­ity to at­tract these events.

Now the club’s board will em­bark on a fur­ther up­grade of the park in readi­ness for the 2020 event, which will not only put the club on the national and international map again, but will as­sist in at­tract­ing fur­ther im­por­tant events to the com­mu­nity.
