I learned to water ski just north of Columbus, GA at Lake Harding when I was 8 years old.  I remember going up to Callaway Gardens for the Masters Water Ski tournament when I was a teenager.  The events at that time were slalom, trick and jump.   Now 40 years later, the 58th Masters was just completed last weekend, and wakeboarding and wakeskating events have been added.  After blowing out her knee last year, Meagan Ethell returned to wakeboard competition and dominated the field.  Check here for the other winners.
