We have a great sit ski clinic planned for Saturday August 12th at Crown Lake just east of Lawrence KS on K-10. Many of you know this as the ski lake where the KU team practices, formerly called MoKan. We will start the day with a short ski show at 10:00 am. We will have the Gardner Edgerton Wrestlers serving lunch during the noon hour. We will ski all afternoon until dinner is served at 5:00 p.m. We are excited to have some members of the MoKan group join us as side skiers. It’s going to be a fabulous day! If you know a disabled person who you think would like to try skiing, please fill out our registration form attached and return to Andria Weber. For more information contact Andria Weber @ 785-979-9004 or email AndiW32@gmail.com

In 2013, the Pomona Lake Ski Club was able to acquire 2 sit skis thanks to generous donations from our sponsors and friends. These skis allow us to work with individuals who have disabilities that would otherwise prevent them from participating in this wonderful summer sport. With the assistance of 2 strong skiers, an attentive boat crew and other people to help with the take off and return of the skier, these participants get to feel what it’s like to have water splashed in their face as they skim along the water.
Our first ever event was held in Holton, KS. We had a beautiful sunny hot day in August, where the water temperature was comfortable and the wind was calm. Attendance was amazing! The participants enjoyed their day skiing and at the end, the Rough Water Warriors put on a charming ski show to entertain the large crowd that had gathered.
We have now completed 5 sit ski clinic and skied hundreds of rides in our 3 sit skis. Look for us at several area lakes this summer.
Be sure to watch our events page so you know when our next event takes place. We are always looking for donations to help support this worthy cause. We try to supply refreshments and a dinner at the end of the day, in addition to kids games, t-shirts and prizes. We appreciate any amount of donation.
