AWS Freerider’s Ball This Weekend at Koppert Lake


Posted on August 5th, 2008 by Bryan Myss | Posted in Events, General, Riders

Words by Zach Schneider (AWS Team Rider)

What’s up everyone? I wanted to fill you all in on Active Water Sports next big event for summer, The 10th Annual Freerider’s Ball on August 9th and 10th. It’s called the Freerider’s event because the judging is based primarily on not what you do, but how you do it. There’s divisions for all levels of riding including juniors, novice, intermediate, advanced, women’s, sliders, masters, wakeskate, and the open division. It’s a two day event with camping spots available and rv hook ups. The open level division rides on sunday so you can count on a good time saturday night. Last year Mike Ennen took home the first place prize of $1,000 and I hear this year there will be twice as many riders ranging from the California and Idaho regions. Mark your calendars for the event, tell your friends, pack your camping gear and head up for some grassroots northwest fun…. oh and say a little prayer to the big man upstairs that we get hot, sunny weather for the whole weekend ! ! ! !
