The Carolina Show Ski team based in Tega Cay has been entertaining us with ski shows in Tega Cay for many years. The water ski team is now asking for your help and support at the Oct 17 Tega Cay City Council meeting. The team is seeking approval for the construction of a ski ramp and performance platform near Windjammer Park.
Please read CSST President Russ Frase letter below asking for your suopport and attendance on Oct 17th.
Carolina Show Ski Team and Supporters,
We need your attendance and support this Monday evening, October 17th, 7:00 pm at the Glennon Center (beside the Club House/Water Tower). A discussion about the Performance Platforms and Jump Ramp are on the agenda. After 2 ½ years, we are in the final stage of our permit process with the Army Corp of Engineers, Duke then to FERC for final approval. This process may be completed by mid December. Currently, the performance platform/jump ramp is moored at the Commodore Club on the Rock Hill side of the main channel. These essential pieces of equipment have been towed across the main channel over 200 times.
This discussion at the City Council meeting will allow the CSST to review our 15 years in a very positive manner and review our liability insurance provided by USA Water Ski. You will have the opportunity to sign up to speak for 3 minutes. If during this discussion a motion is made/seconded and the vote indicates that the City will not allow us the opportunity to move forward with the performance platforms/jump ramp our Friday Night Ski Shows, Learn to Ski Days and our July 4th participation will end.
These capital improvements will be funded by CSST and built professionally. The performance platforms will be carpet with tie off cleats for the jump ramp only.
We have entertained thousands and taught hundreds to ski. We need all of your support Monday Evening.
Thank you,Russell Frase President Carolina Show Ski Team.
P.S. If you are unable to attend please e-mail the Tega Cay City Council and ask that they give us their continued support and allow us to move forward with the new performance docks/jump ramp.
