    This year we are gathering at Sand Hollow Reservoir in st. George, Utah on October 25 and 26, 2019. All are welcome. Last year we had about 15 riders of all skill levels, from those learning to taxi, to experienced inverters. Feel free to send me an email or PM and I will make sure we have enough boats. Tallredrider at Gmail. We ride in the morning, eat at the burger joint on the lake, then ride all afternoon. It has always been a good time.

    Water temp is typically 55-60 degrees, with air temps 70-80+.

    It looks like we are scheduled to have 15+ riders. Air temps are forecast to be 70-75 with calm winds. Looks like nothing but butter, especially on Friday before Wally comes out!

    If anyone else is interested, shoot me an email. Tallredrider at Gmail.

    We had a great time at Sand Hollow this year. The weather was beautiful as usual. Air temps were in the 70's at the peak, a little chilly in the morning at 45-50 degrees. Water temp about 60 degrees. We had 19 riders and 4 boats. One fellow broke a few ribs on a wake to wake to splat, but I am unaware on any other injuries. I think everyone had a great time! Already looking forward to next year! It wouldn't be right if I didn't promote myself to start with. Here's a pic of my baby gainer, laid out, and Look Ma, no hands!

    A couple of other shots here. Greg on a front in the sunset. A boat full of folks. The oldest rider was Santa Claus, at 72 years old.

    Here's a few of us lined up in front of a couple of the boats. This was a great time! Good folks and some great riding. I can't think of a better way to end the year. Next year we will make it even better!

    Most of us wear some sort of suit this time of year. In the peak of summer, our average air temp is 107 degrees or so, highest I have seen is 117. That gets our water up to almost 80.

    that's very interesting that it only gets up to 80, must be very deep water too. We have air temps regularly in the 90's all summer and our water gets up into the high 80's, depth where we play ranges from 10-30' though

    Atta boy! Way to play through the pain of that basketball injury buddy!

    That sunset pic would look great on the back of a t-shirt!
