The City of Columbus has been kind enough to let us take over part of a public water way for Wakeboarding, Hydrofoiling, Wakeskating, and Wakesurfing over the last three years. This year they granted a permit for the second annual National Wakesurfing Championship. <BR> <BR>Last year I asked Scioto Wakefest competitors to sign two picture frames. I filled the picture frame with event photographs and presented the picture frame to the Scioto Boat Club and City of Columbus Recreation and Parks department. <BR> <BR>This year I wanted to repeat the gesture but I wanted to step it up a bit. Iíve started glassing a board to give to the city, hence the City Board. I used an HP ink jet printer to print event photos and logos on rice paper. Then I put the art under the first layer of glass. <BR> <BR>I think this will be an unusual thank you and item for the city to display. <BR> <BR>Here are a few picturesÖ <BR><img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/559019/628350.jpg" alt="Upload"> <BR><img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/559019/628351.jpg" alt="Upload"> <BR><img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/559019/628352.jpg" alt="Upload"> <BR><img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/559019/628353.jpg" alt="Upload"> <BR><img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/559019/628354.jpg" alt="Upload"> <BR><img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/559019/628355.jpg" alt="Upload">

Basically took the idea from last year and from when Jeff gave Skier's Choice a custom made board for the Moomba Jamboree. Jeff was recognizing the fact that Rick Tinker at SC decision to remove a wakesurfing advisory from SC web sites. <BR> <BR>The city doesnít have to give me an event permit, itís a privilege. Anything you can do to recognize assistance or special consideration is a good thing.

I'm sure they will love it. It looks great and will remind them how much we appreciate their cooperation in helping our sport. Plus the pics are cool, everytime they see the board they will know what a great time all the participants had!
