1st Barefoot Clinic Stop in South Carolina

The trip started of with an interesting leg as Charlie (my toy poodle) came with me and it was his first flight.  Fortunately he is a great traveler and did not make a peep the whole way so we were clear sailing.

Ron Meeks, the clinic organizer, met me at the airport and took me to his place on the lake.  This is probably the most organized clinic I have ever been to as when I arrived Ron had a spread sheet there with the whole week planned out with who is coming, what we are having for lunch and dinner for the week and anything else you could imagine.

The first day started off with this water and pretty much continued throughout the week! …

There were a few days where we had some chilly weather which made it a little more difficult to get motivated to get in the water and learn something new.

Then there were also days where a lot of sun cream was needed 😉

One of the skiers, Shawn, has a plane not to far away so on one of the evenings we took a little trip to see the local area and to get an arial view of the set up we were using…  Cheers Shawn!!

I had a great week there and all the skiers learned so much including Ron Meeks doing some surface turns on his feet for the first time and sorting his back wakes, Becky learning her toe holds and getting better at backwards, Jim Miller learning backwards long line, Mark rocking turns out as well as some great slalom and much much more but it would take too long for me to mention.

Everyone skied a lot and resorted to taking small naps in-between sets :)

O, there were also these bugs that only came out ever 13 years, mated and then died within a couple of weeks (kinda cool) and we also came across a snake trying to eat birds under a bridge….

    Wow, with all the traveling you’ve done over the years, I can’t believe that this was Charlie’s first plane trip! Looks like a great clinic!
