The Inter-Club Challenge

 

As a Region, the North West is aiming to encourage novice & new club members to start competing. The Inter-Club Challenge is based on the concept of the Cutting Edge Competition, with rules to suite but for beginners of all ages. It is also a chance for beginners and novices to meet, ski with and socialise with skiers/riders from other clubs and to visit sites other than their Home Club.

 

Next season we will roll this out and have a number of meets at different clubs around the North and the results will accumulate as the season progresses.

 

No need for licenses, just BWSW memberships…the aim was to keep the cost to a minimum.

 

We offered Boat Wakeboard, Boat Wakeskate, Barefoot on the Boom (or Seahorse), Kneeboard Trick & Slalom and Tournament Trick & Slalom and Disc Riding.  So Eight Different Events.

 

Entrants register for as many or as few events as they wished and as time allowed could ski as many times as they wanted in each event (only the best performance counting towards their final placing). Each Entrant was given an Overall Position by the accumulation of their Event Scores.

 

The top four team members scores form each event counted towards the team score.

 

Each event Consisted of 4 passes and was scored on a combination of technical difficulty, style, intensity, artistic impression and most importantly ability to “entertain the crowd”. The Entrant with the top score in each discipline was awarded 1,000 points. The rest of the field was given a proportion of 1,000 points equivalent to the merit of their performance.

 

The Event was very informal with the running order being made on a first come first served basis with Entrants putting their name on the List as they arrived. Then they were allowed to choose which event they wanted to partake in, just as on a normal ski day.

 

In the Inaugural competition, we had 10 Entrants From 3 Clubs, Ran 6 Events and did 36 sets. The Results have been posted on the Clubs Facebook Page https://www.facebook.com/TheWaterSkiBoardingAcademyWhitworth and below.
