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.
This event was so successful that we are planning at least 2 events in 2014. One of the events will be to support the wounded warriors in our area. Another event is planned for Holton again.
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.
