Well it has become a tradition for us. Every year the Carolina ski team based at Lake Wiley SC hosts a New Year's Day barefoot waterskiing tournament at Lake Norman Marina, the Bennington/Cobalt dealership. Participants from all over including Florida, Michigan, New Jersey, Ohio, SC and of course NC were there. Ages ranged from 8 to 77 yrs. old. The difference this year was the air temp was only 23 degrees and the water temp was 49 degrees. How those skiiers got into the water much less skiing was beyond me. They were phenomenal with all of the tricks and deep water starts. Sorry no pics or video. Didn't want to take my gloves off. Ha!
