Support disabled skiing by riding this weekend in Tennessee
 
Support disabled skiing by riding this weekend in Tennessee
Come out and ski or ride a lap in the Tennessee River for charity.
Its called Eskimo Escapades or "Shut Up And Ski"!!
This Saturday January 28 2012 from 10 am till 3 pm, at Vol Landing, next door to Calhoun’s restaurant. (downtown Knoxville)
Come ski, wakeboard, tube, whatever you like, we can provide equipment. Or just come watch.
Some people dress in fun costumes.
Warm up in the hot tub after you ski.
Get a pull behind tournament boats like Mastercraft, Nautique, or Malibu.

All money raised goes to 3 charities. One charity we work with closely in the summer teaches persons with disabilities to waterski, and helps buy the adaptive water ski equipment needed.
Proceeds benefit the Dream Connection, the Patricia Neal Innovative Recreation Cooperative (PNIRC) and Adventure Amputee Camp.

Each participant needs to raise at least $30 to ski for the charities.

Thanks for your support
If you come out, ask for Joe R. (that's me) I will probably be driving a boat. I would like to meet and personally thank anyone who comes out to the event.
