The Ranking list is now active for qualifications of skiers for the Western Regional Tournament. At the request of the LOC the ranking requirements for individual events has been revised with the approval of the Regional Council to Level 5 for all individual events and Level 4 overall. To see your age groups qualification requirement or to see your individual qualification go to USA Waterski, find the ranking list on the left side, add the filters to find your division, your event and set the qualification filter to 2017 Western Regional, then scroll to find your name in the list. Entries are still open and Wet Set is looking forward to welcoming all skiers to the site for a fabulous week of skiing.
The Wet Set Regional Record Warm Up Tournament still has available skier event rides. For additional information please see the Regional Guide page 54, the AWSA Event & Registration web page, or just contact our favorite Men 8 skier from Newberry Springs for all the information and registration information.

AWSA would like to invite you to reach out to your friends, former ski partners and anyone else you know who has dropped their membership in the last 5 years. Many of them are still skiing recreationally, still have a boat or still love the sport of waterskiing but have been drawn away by other interests, injury or just got busy with something else. The supporting member qualifies for the 15% discount with Masterline on the first product purchase. So if you were going to buy a rope or handle, the $35 membership is effectively reduced to $16 with the discount at Masterline. So invite all your friends and wait for the next announcement of membership benefits coming soon.
It is now the beginning of the ski season and time to start thinking about our West Region Award of Merit, formerly the Rich Slingerland Memorial Award. The nominations are due July 15th and the presentation of the award will be made at the General Membership Meeting at Wet Set during the Western Regionals on July 25th.
Every year since 1975 the Western Region has recognized a member or an official who epitomized friendship, dedication with integrity. The first award was presented at the US National tournament and is now one of the Western Regions’ most prestigious honors. This award was established and is maintained for a deserving person who might otherwise go unnoticed. All Western Region members are welcome and encouraged to submit nominations for this award to the local councilperson or to Richelle Muhlitner or Larry Laughlin before July 15th. Prior award recipients can be found in the Regional Guide.
