FYI:

World Championship Snowmobile Watercross

Grantsburg, Wisconsin

Friday, Saturday, Sunday- July 18, 19, 20, 2003

http://www.burnettcounty.com/h2ocross/

For those who would like to remember that 2-stroke smell, there will be Watercross racing this weekend, along with a streetdance/party and fireworks later at night:

I'll be there watching, and I'll get a few short video clips of it and post them for all you Fanatics.

we will be going to the fireworks, they always put on a huge show. its only fifteen minutes from home but we can never make it during the day to watch the skips,

riley raced there before, he has a lot of neat storys of how they started water cross in some areas, the first guy to pull a skier, maybe in a couple years he can help me build a water machine!!! it must be nice to be old, and see how far your sports have come. lol

Looks like fun.

This guy totally biffed it directly in front of us. The machine went one way, and the rider went another...LOL! It was the best wipeout of the day!

This rider narrowly escaped going under. Very lucky!

A modded REV Summit does awesome on water. Here he corners on a 4-lap oval race.

I've got some vids too that i might show.
Why do my pics have a white border? I need a better editor.

Enjoy.

What does the DNR think of the Watercross events? Do they need a special permit from them to be able to run it on a lake like that? Cool pics though.

that looks 2 me like a private lake such as used in slalom skiing competitions and wakeboard stuff......

It's held on Memory Lake, which to me looks more like a pond. I think it is privately owned, not sure though.
