Just wondering who all is going and what the agenda is for the weekend. Some friends and I have booked a room at the holiday inn downtown which is suppose to be close to all the action. <BR> <BR>Also, where is the video premier (sponsored by Liquid Force) suppose to be held?

Is the site a river, and is there a current?

mobv 06-23-2009 7:39 AM

Peter, this is Phil Aslingers dad. The site is a river (very upper end of Fort Loudon Lake) current is very light typically less than 1mph. <BR>Past local wakeboarding tournaments have been between the 2 bridges. They could move this to the left. I marked both with a red line. <BR> <BR><img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/65919/709420.jpg" alt="Upload">

Thanks Chris for posting been having a lot of questions . If anyone else needs anything such as directions please feel free to email me at <a href="mailto:jbaggett@tnrmt.com">jbaggett@tnrmt.co m</a>

jasonba1 06-23-2009 11:29 AM

Hey Chad I have all of your stuff together and will have it at your hotel waiting on you

hoosairboy 06-23-2009 11:47 AM

Hows the bank? Beach or walls? Rollback?

mobv 06-23-2009 12:12 PM

the spectator side is a concrete wall, definately some roll back. At the local events I been to they have trouble controlling boat and PWC traffic. Maybe the tour can post more signs and patrol boats to help. This is a open river controlled by TVA and the Core of Engineers. They have to allow commercial traffic (barge)through. There is not much barge traffic that far up stream but some. Fort Louden is the most upstream lock on the Tennessee River. <BR> <BR>This site will not have the best water quality on the tour.

deltawake 06-23-2009 12:27 PM

thanks George

michaelspsp 06-23-2009 1:00 PM

ok, stupid question, do you need tickets for the Box of Fun premier or just show up?

jasonba1 06-23-2009 3:23 PM

No you dont need tickets for the movie premier as far as I have been told. I actually just got done having a meeting with the setup crew of PWT and the city of Knoxville. They want as many boats down there as possible. If you come by boat just make sure you raft off on the south side by the hospital. So come by land or boat we r looking forward to seeing everyone.

jasonba1 06-23-2009 3:28 PM

Also for those of you that maybe coming in on Thursday we have a weekly rail event at wild wing cafe that starts at 6, great food, drinks and riding. I also just got word the oakley lab will be at wildwings on Thursday night and at the PWT tour

michaelspsp 06-23-2009 7:31 PM

jason, i will see you thursday night!

jasonba1 06-24-2009 2:17 PM

Sounds good Michael ill probably be by the liquid force tent just ask for me. If you need anything else let me know. Do you already have tickets?

michaelspsp 06-24-2009 3:19 PM

no, i dont have tickets, you emailed me your cell. i am calling on my way down from NJ tmw (me and my GF). is wild wings easy to find? will be coming off of I-40. we are staying at the Four Points sheraton.

hoosairboy 06-24-2009 4:10 PM

Sounds a lot like Kelona- yuck. Random rollers does not make a good tournament.

hayes 06-24-2009 4:49 PM

Chad, <BR> <BR>Not planning on taking a boat. I also heard that Calhoun's might be a good place to watch. After that, we plan on hitting up the Cider House/Valarium for the after party. See you there.

michaelspsp 06-24-2009 5:20 PM

my buddy lives there. he rides there everyday, literally. he competed in the Pro tour a few years ago. he says normally its glass. i think the promoters are worried about rollers from the spectator boats. so i guess they do not want to take any chances and want a bunch tied off together to prevent any problems before they happen

jasonba1 06-24-2009 5:23 PM

Hey Michael I have your tickets sorry didnt pay attention to the name. I will see you at wild wings. Wild wing is very easy take I 40 to exit 373 which is campbell station rd. take a left and when you see cracker barrell turn right there on campbell lake rd it is behind cracker barrell and the baymount hotel. If you have any problems give me a call

michaelspsp 06-24-2009 6:04 PM

awesome! ty

jward10 06-25-2009 8:45 AM

can't wait. how is the weather looking for the weekend

bbenj10 06-25-2009 9:10 AM

weather looks hot and sunny for saturday and chance of storm on sunday. 90s all weekend. Look for the Virginia Tech Wakeboard Club there in the Epic 23V courtesy of Southern Ski Boats! <BR> <BR> <BR><img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/65919/710200.jpg" alt="Upload">

jasonba1 06-25-2009 11:43 AM

Nice cant wait to see you all. Weather sunny and hot sat. 20 percent chance of rain on sunday

headedoffshore 06-25-2009 12:56 PM

Can someone please post the location of the best ramp to use near Volunteer Landing?

jdreiser 06-25-2009 1:45 PM

Two locations - Marine naval center on ALCOA highway (129) just a bit west of Volunteer landing and then there is another east of Volunteer landing about 1/2 mile under a viaduct on Riverside.

dguille 06-26-2009 1:01 PM

Does anyone know if Knoxville is a dry city like Pigeon Forge or can you buy beer &amp; liquor there? Were on the way right now and didn't know if we needed to stop before we get there. Thanks!

hunterw 06-26-2009 1:08 PM

Dude no worries on Knoxville being DRY! it wasnt voted best party school for The Football Team I can tell you that! ROLL TIDE!!!!!!

seankey 06-26-2009 2:44 PM

Yeah, you guys better be ready to watch some wakeboarding and of course party! I will be on land Sat., and on boat Sun. Look for the black XStar with the Liquid Force Party Island. Feel free to stop and say hey.

jasonba1 06-26-2009 8:03 PM

just got back from the redbull team photo shoot with the red bull sea plane it was awesome. Wild wings thursday night was a crazy turnout cant wait to see whats in store for this weekemd.

dguille 06-28-2009 6:07 AM

Knoxville has been great so far! The water quality and drift wood were a bit of a issue yesterday but overall great spot. I will say I liked the beachy feel of Achworth but this venue has a good set up. Oh and if you get a chance to stay at the host hotel..... Do it! These guys are fun as hell to party with!

jpminter 06-29-2009 4:17 AM

Sean, <BR> <BR>Best looking boat I saw all weekend...
