The Southern Region is honoring Ed Finley who passed away last summer by hosting the 2019 Southern Regional Championships at Mills Pond, Fort Lauderdale, Florida July 20-21. Mills Pond is home of the Gold Coast Ski Club and Ed was a long-time member.
Tournament Director and Southern Regional Director Mike Caruso has wanted to have a barefoot tournament in South Florida for several years and was excited Mills Pond was open to having barefooters back in the hood. SIGN UP HERE
“It’s a great way to honor Ed and bring barefoot competitions back to Fort Lauderdale,” says Caruso. “Plus, the site is long, calm and you definitely won’t have to wear a heater shirt!”
The fun begins Saturday with Tricks and Slalom and a possible bonus round. Sunday Morning, two rounds of jump! Lunch will be available on site Saturday and Caruso is planning a Barefooter’s Dinner Saturday night. T-shirts will be sold!
The host hotel: Fort Lauderdale Marriott North for $109/night! BOOK BY JUNE 28
Then on December 7, the Southern Region will honor perennial world championship competitor Mike Salber who also passed away last summer in a boating accident. They will be hosting the Mike Salber Worlds Qualifier at Lake Grew in Polk City, Florida. SIGN UP HERE
