I was hoping to pull from about a 3 hour radius from Memphis, that's why I was trying to get a feel from everyone where they called there favorite spots or home or just what part of the midsouth they are in this way I could get an idea on a lake, of course the lake I pick plays into allot of what I can offer as far as giveaways and door prizes and such. But then again my main goal here is just to get these people together and then grow it from there. Thinks to the ones that have responded it shows some interest don't forget to go and sign up for Southern Wakes forum and give me some ideas and let me know your hot spots and get any news about this event or other events going on Upload

I'm in Jackson (along with B Webb), I don't know many places up in Memphis as I've never riden up there, But i have riden on Sardis before and when we went it was absolutely amazing. Its not far from Memphis at all. But i'm not sure how easy it would be to get more of the northern riders to come a little further south. Have you thought about the Tenn Tombigbee?

You been out any? I have ridden the rez 3-4 times in the last month.. and Eagle lake a few times in Feb.. Holla sometime. I have not been on the river yet. Is it back to a normal level? had to dodge a couple of logs Friday eve over by Pelahatchie bay... I am sure the river has a few in it!

I thought about the Tenn Tombigbee I just don't know allot about it. But hay that's why I am asking for input from the riders where are you saying on the tombigbee.

I can work on the date. I want to work with everyone the best I can. I know I am not going to please everyone but if I have to move it a weekend back or forward I can. I would just like to see a good turn out.

Hey B Webb, We've been out a few times. If this weather would stop going from 85 one day to 60 the next the water would be a lot better. I was actually over by Pelahatchie Bay Monday after easter for a few hours just to take my 2 year old son out for a little while. I was getting ready to pull my brother and these wallies in a yamaha powerturning every where ruined the water! made me miss the river!But to top it off, my brother left my rope and handle (red ronix seneca handle, brand new 80 ft white a-line) on the back of the boat, didn't realize it wasn't there til we put it back on the trailer! still not happy about that! I went out on the river Sunday for a while, it was perfect. No logs or anything, water level is good. I think we're goin out again thursday, Zack's going to come ride with us. If you've never seen him ride you need to!

Roger, i'll get a hold of zack and ask him, he's been riding up there several times. i know they ride at beans ferry. but he'll know where the best place is. Here's a vid of a few of em riding up there. 11
Hope they don't mind i put that on here.

I applaud your effort Roger. I have not been around the water as much over the past 2 years as I once was, but I still love when I do get out there.

I know that the Memphis Boat Center had something out at Pickwick before right where the Tombigbee starts. There used to be some "core" riders there, but not sure how many frequent Pickwick these days. If you had it there, I would try to make it. I got a baby due any day now, so it will all depend on her.

Either way...good luck.

Thank you for the applaud. Things get slowed up a little at first after having kids I have a 10 and 5 year old and they take any free time I have left and I would not trade it for anything in the world. My 10 year old got her first Hyperlite this year so can't wait to get her on it. I have been looking at Pickwick real hard that is wear allot of people are that can help out as far as sponsor's and such. So I will get it narrowed down. I have had a response from all over so I have been kind of surprised. I thought it would have been one group in one area but it backs up what I have said before I see wakeboarders every where I go so I know there out there. The first time I put a wakeboard under me I fell in love with the sport just wish I would have done it sooner in life. I am going to try and grow the sport in the midsouth. I have allot of ideas so keep the ideas and support coming and we will get it there. Also I do take volunteers to help out so don't be shy just ask.
