On the weekend of September 25th, KC Watersports is going where no other park would dare…..one billion riders in three days- give or take a few hundred million. That’s right, one billion riders (more or less), all converging at one time at the Midwest Mecca for wakeboarding. Accountants from Arthur Andersen will be on hand to make sure we get an accurate count.
This is your chance to be part of history. Ride, hang out, and compete with a billion wakeboarders and wakeskaters from all over the Midwest. In addition to riding, the event will serve as a fundraiser for the local chapter of Big Brothers and Big Sisters Foundation. There will be a raffle for some great items donated by our sponsors; all raffle proceeds go to the Foundation.
The cable opens Friday afternoon at 2 with open riding on the cable till dark. Saturday kicks off early- 9 a.m.- with open riding until 5. During the day, there will be a rail jam competition on each structure. Scion Box and Kustom Sandals Kicker will be judged from 9:15 – 10:00, Liquid Force Rail and the Monster Box from 10:15– 11:00, Alliance Flat Bar and Anarchy Rail 11:15– 12. Prizes will be awarded for the best trick on each structure during the judging period.
At 5, the cable shuts down for the rail competition. There will be beginner, intermediate, and advanced wakeboard divisions, along with an open wakeskate division. We’ll have drawings for awesome prizes and the lucky billionth rider will win a special Liquid Force prize pack that includes a Liquid Force Mod Wakeskate. (In the event we wind up a few million short, the winner will be determined by a random drawing.)
The fun continues Sunday with open riding from noon – 6. As an incentive to get you and your “bros” out, we’re offering a special discount. Come solo and pay $50 for the weekend pass that includes a comp entry for one division. You and one “bro” pay $45 each, bring 4 or more pay $40 each. Comp entry is $10 per division. So rally your troops and head to KC Watersports. Cheap camping minutes away at Miola Lake.
Come out, ride, and let’s show America a billion reasons why Midwest Wakeboarding is King!!
