Hey Wake Team Captains, coaches, presidents, advisors, riders, and sponsors!
The 2008 Western Collegiate Wakeboard Regionals will again be held at Villa Lagos, but this time presented by the Chico State Wake Team. Chico is only 30 minutes from this great lake. I realize that this isn't much info at this point but we will have more coming at you very soon. This is more of a heads up so we can all start planning flights/travel arrangements and stuff like that. We're still working on things like a host hotel, venue for meet and greet which will be hosted by redbull, and travel arrangements to and from the lake. But I can tell you that we are going to have quite an event in store for everyone and I hope you and your teams will make the trip. God willing we will again have great weather this year. But do pack your suits! It is Norcal in late October.
Teams expected to attend include Chico State, Sacramento State, UCSB, and CSU Long Beach from California; ASU and U of A from Arizona; Western and Central Washington Universities; University of Portland and University of Oregon; and many others. I still don't have any information regarding wake teams from Colleges and Universities in Nevada, Colorado, Utah, Hawaii, Montana, Idaho, or Wyoming. If you are a rider from a school in one of these states with a wake team that would like to compete please contact me asap.
