Points Chase Heating up at TSR
With two weeks to go the points chase is heating up at Texas Ski Ranch in South Central Texas. The inaugural CableWakeboard.com National points chase has brought the Thursday Night showdown to a whole new level. Riders are training and competing harder than ever before to earn a spot in the Points Championship held here in New Braunfels, Texas October 8-10. Riders are currently competing all over the country for a spot to compete at the points championships not only as an individual but also to represent their home cable park in a team format that will take place simultaneously. While it may mean something more to Texas riders to defend their home lake advantage, teams from seven of the eight other cable parks will also be competing to take home the team championship.
In week three of five TSR was forced to deal with poor weather brought on by Hurricane Alex, but still saw a field of 46 riders for the Thursday night event. (Down from 61 the week before) The restaurant and bar onsite at TSR are helping to build the event by bringing in a DJ and hosting beer/water pong tournaments to keep the festivities hopping throughout the evening. The riders are not the only group excited about the nationwide event, local media such as the New Braunfels Herald Zeitung and writer Chris Hoffman have embraced the series and are helping to promote wakeboarding to South Central Texas.
