I just have to share this story as it brought a huge smile to my face and that of my crew. There is a nice cove at Norris lake where some folks like to hang out and it also has a slalom course. I am a mediocre wake boarder and not much better at slalom, but I do enjoy the challenge of skiing the course. On many occasions we have had to ask folks to move their boat to open up the course and have all been helpful and friendly. However, sometimes you get the feeling that boats in the cove get a little irritated when someone is skiing the course as the one end requires a high speed, high performance turn (it is pretty narrow). I feel bad disrupting their piece, so we only make a few passes then take a long break. Well, on Saturday I made a few passes and let go of the rope fairly close to a MasterCraft wake boat that was no doubt unconvinced by our turns and wake (sorry guys). Well, when I stop I hear them all cheer and start blasting "Woopm, There It Is" on their system! It was pretty cool to see the camaraderie between water-sports. I love cheering for other boats when I see someone land a nice invert or even just look "sharp" and as if they have mastery of their sport and it was really cool to receive the same.
Anyway, I just wanted to share and let you all know that it sure was a bright spot in our day.
