INT Inland Northwest Championships

Are you one of those people who derives joy from holding onto a rope and letting a boat pull you at high speed across the surface of the water? Yeah? You any good? If you’re a wakeboarder, water skiier, wake surfer or kneeboarder (which apparently still exist) test your skills this weekend at Long Lake. The two-day event features competition in all the abovementioned disciplines and is both family- and spectator friendly. If you want to compete, don’t let yourself get intimidated — organizers say that everyone from novices to pros are welcome.

Sat, Aug. 22, at 9 am at Lake Spokane Campground; Sun, Aug. 23 at 7:30 am at Nine Mile Campground • $35/registration, $100/family of 3 or more, free for spectators • Register at
