checking in. Again
« on: October 02, 2014, 09:32:37 AM »
Hey guys.  Just wanted to say hi.  Been a long time since I've been on here. 

For those of you who don't know me, I started the Facebook Group which eventually prompted the birth of this site.

Good to here from you again, when you started this thing you woke up a sleeping boat company. My "normal" Composite Design & repair business is slowly turning into an American Skier support center, now complete with an online parts store. I just got back from the industry trade show in Tampa & half of the things i was checking out were items that the forum guys may be interested in. Stay in touch....RonT

Damn Ron. Should have let me know. Might have been able to meet for dinner or something along those lines. I work in Tampa.

Kinda figured it was something like that.
 I certainly understand. I was trying to figure out a way to go to that show. Would've loved to see it but not open to the public.

Hey Chris.  Nice to hear from you.  The 02 Pro is awesome.  She helped me teach 11 people how to ski this year.  It is so fun to help people learn how to ski and share that great American Skier wake!

That kind of stuff is what keeps me working! I sat on the plane returning from IBEX in Tampa last week next to a college senior (she was cute too) & she asked me what brought me to Tampa, which led to her telling me that she was tired of wakeboarding & wanted to work on her slalom skills & learn barefooting just to show up the guys she hangs with! Needless to say that was a short conversation filled trip. Old school skiing still rocks!

Chris...   I've been off for quite a while myself.   Daughter going to college with my son right behind her so the boat, Porsche & Jeep were sold off...   Really, really, really miss my boat, but ya gotta do what ya gotta do!!!  Glad to see you guys are still on here and having fun!   Keep it that way  :)

Later,
