The tournament was a great success this year. The beautiful site at the Lake St. Louis Country Club was very family friendly with a wonderful beach swim area, pool and Country Club restaraunt.
This year, 28 footers competed for a 1000 dollar first place prize! The weather was hot and humid and sunny and the water was warm and clear. The morning started a little breezy and the back corner of the course was proving to be difficult to foot through. The competition started off with the first set of footers hitting the water at about 9 am. James Weber went up against Rob Christinsen in the first run of the day that sent James to the losers bracket.
With the breezy conditions, the course was eating up footer after footer as no one could make more than 3/4 of an eight. As the day progressed, the footers became more dialed in and a few elite were able to pump out just over one Figure 8. Timmy Hydro and Chad Mietz had one of the longest runs of the day at just under two Figure 8's.(see photo below)
Chad Mietz versus Timmy Hydro
The competition went on without a hitch and not a single re-run was necessary as the footers skied very well throughout the tournament. Due to the choppy water conditions, there was no show-boating or hot-dogging from any footers. Mike Miller did his best to please the crowd as he threw up his patented wave at the beginning of each of his runs.
Mike Miller versus Mike Netzer. Mike Won!
After all the smoke cleared, the tournament was down to a few footers. Jacob Weber footed his way to 3rd place after sending JJ Link to the beach with a 4th place finish. Marc Donahue's only loss came against Greg Fatla that sent Marc to the losers bracket. But it wasn't for long. After defeating Jacob Weber, Marc was back over to the Winners bracket for a one on one showdown and an attempt at redemption against Fatla. Greg skied strong all day long without a single loss. Marc needed two wins against Fatla in order to claim the first place prize. After Marc took Greg down in the first run, the two went at it again with little to no break in between the runs. This may have been Greg's achilles heel as he succumbed to another loss to Marc and sent Donahue to the top of the podium as the Champ.
