Black Rock Water Ski returns to river
It must be a new year if you spotted members of the Black Rock Boat Club on the waters of the Schuylkill River. The club’s annual New Year’s Water Ski was postponed this year from Jan. 1 to Sunday, Jan. 6, because of rain. Each year, the water skiers perform various tricks, such as skiing backwards, on their good-luck run to usher in the new year.
