SKI NAUTIQUE BIG DAWG SLALOM SERIES RETURNS FOR ITS THIRD STRAIGHT YEAR
ORLANDO, FLA (January 21, 2008) – Correct Craft, Inc. announced today that it will sponsor the Ski Nautique Big Dawg series for a third consecutive year. The Ski Nautique Big Dawg Slalom series consists of four 34-mile-per-hour slalom water skiing qualifying tournaments held regionally and a final competition in Orlando, Florida.
The four qualifying tournaments pit up to 50 skiers in heart-pounding, head-to-head competition, all vying for a cash prize and a chance to advance to the finals in Orlando on September 27-28. The cash and contingencies purse has been increased to over $24,000 and the top competitor will claim the Ski Nautique Big Dawg title.
“The Ski Nautique Big Dawg is intended for the true amateur athlete. It’s all about the enthusiasm and excitement of competing against the best in the world, which embodies the true spirit of competition,” said Greg Davis, founder of the Big Dawg concept. “Not only does it provide an exciting competition format for skiers, it is enjoyable for the spectators as well.”
The four qualifying tournaments are scheduled to be held in California, Michigan, Texas and Louisiana with the finals being held in Orlando, Florida. For registration information, log on to www.skinautique.com. All of the tournaments will be webcast with the finals being a live webcast.
The series is open to skiers 35 years of age or older, who have not placed in the top 10 in a pro slalom tournament in the past three years. Entries for each qualifying event will be limited to the first 50 qualified paid skiers.
