This past Saturday we held our annual Wilmington Ski Warriors Tournament at Wilmington Recreation Club in Illinois. Over 30 skiers competed. My son Timmy went uncontested in his divisions, having fun in slalom and trick. Max took 1st place in Boys II slalom against two other competitors. Additonally, Max won the coveted Ron Romanowski Achievement Award. Kara took first in Girls III scoring 2 buoys at 32mph 15off. I took 2nd among 4 with a score of 4 bouys at 34/15. My friend Ed took first place in Men's 34 slalom...getting into 32off followed by great tricking and a barefoot exposition.
We just beat out the storm which wiped out power in the club. Thankfully, gracious club members and a great DJ cranked up enough generators to power the dance and award ceremony. Great day, great people!
