    Brian, Thank you for putting on this event. I can’t even
    imagine all the time and effort that is going into it.
    I’m comming up to watch. I’ll introduce myself – – thanks again.

    Jim Richards

    P.S. I hope this event will give waveskiing a much needed
    shot in the arm. We’re getting pushed-out by the SUP’ers.
