I know that kid!
Tom Reagan is the organizer of the Lake Washington, MN event and kindly sent us a copy of the June issue of Mankato Magazine. Tom practices in the Twin Cities area and told me that he could hold a contest up there, but the small city is starved for news and human interest stories. We were interviewed by the Press Democratic, I believe - the local paper and the local TV station covered the event the last two years. The larger metro areas have so much other fodder that they can't be bothered with the smaller contests.
Great to see wakesurfing making the front page of a local family friendly mainstream magazine.
