Black Rock Wa­ter Ski re­turns to river

The Phoenix - - FRONT PAGE -

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.
