The Final Touch


Our Opening Pyramid during practice on Tuesday August, 7

It was one year ago this weekend that Mad-City capped an amazing year at the National Show Ski Tournament in Janesville, WI with a flawless show and a National Title.

As we head into this weekends National Tournament in Loves Park, IL, the goal remains the same, however, the outcome is far from set in stone.

We are putting the finishing touches on our show as we speak and getting ourselves ready for a huge weekend.

Last year, just like the Wisconsin State Tournament, the Rock-Aqua Jays came in second and you can bet that they are itching for a little payback.

However, two teams that are perennial powers, Wonder Lake from Wonder Lake, IL and the Little Crow Ski Team from New London, MN always bring their “A” game as well and are looking to knock both Janesville and Mad-City from the perch atop the show ski world that we held since 2001.

As for our show, expect bigger and better things for the national show, we have spent countless hours working on our acts and our stage work. Our man behind the sound, Eric Wedige, has been tweaking up our sound and our tag-team announcers, Adam Schaller and Matt Baumler, have taken their humor and skills to a whole new level!

This tournament represents the culmination of almost a years worth of work for every team involved.  Hours and hours are spent behind the scenes to put forth a top-flight show.  The daily aches and pains, the late nights and the tremendous amount of personal sacrifice that go into producing a show such as these 14 teams will put on the water this week-end is a testament to the dedication that every member of the show-ski community have for the sport.

We are all excited for the week-end and we invite everyone down to Loves Park to join us!
