As posted earlier, the SFWA held it’s first membership meeting at the SkiRixen Cable Park on June 30, 2007. Unfortunately, mother nature would not cooperate as the rain poured down. However, we weren’t denied and for those who made it out, the day finished on a positive note with food, conversation and, most importantly, riding.

In total about 15 members (and their spouses who cheered them on while they rode) showed up and braved the rains for almost two hours. The weather cleared and we were able to hold a small membership meeting followed by an hour and a half of riding. If you have never been to a cable park it is an awesome experience. Of the 10 plus people who rode several were first time riders and everyone left wanting more. The riding was A++ again. I am always impressed with the riders in our organization. Even those riding for the first time at a cable park were able to pull some smooth moves. Except for SFWA Rudy L. shutting the park down for five minutes because he could not say within the bouys (stay in between the bouys Rudy!!!!) the riding went of without a hitch.

This event gave us a great opportunity to meet and talk about our upcoming events (September and November) and a chance to bond as a club. The SFWA is dedicated to advancing the wakeboarding lifestyle but more importantly we want to create an organization of friends that ride together.

If you missed the event, don’t worry, more are on their way. I look forward to personnally meeting everyone. Until then,

Shred the South!!!
