Tomorrow on Saturday, June 26 the Mad-City Ski Team will compete in it’s first tournament of the 2010 ski season. The team skis second in the Mercury Marine Open Tournament and will take to the water sometime between 930a and 10a.
The tournament will be held on the Rock River at Traxler Park in Janesville, WI at the Rock Aqua Jays’ ski site (follow link for directions).
With several members having moved away or taking time off this season, the team on the water is young and eager to prove themselves on the water at their first tournament. For many members, it’ll be their first time competing in any tournament.
One thing that will provide a challenge to Mad-City, and all of the other teams competing, is the Rock River itself. With all of the rain in southern Wisconsin over the past several weeks, the Rock River is currently very high and with a reported very swift 6 MPH current. The current will be fast enough to move you nearly 100 feet in about 10 seconds.
