The 2013 Barefoot Nationals Update

Friday, June 21st, 2013

The 2013 Barefoot Nationals are quickly approaching!  The tournament will be held at Mossdale Quarry Lakes . Here are some updates:

The tournament has been shortened by one day– the new dates are August 15-17.

Host hotel:   Comfort Suites in Oakley, California. Book your rooms early as you can– the room rate is $99.00 a night. The hotel is about 35 minutes from the site.

Airport info: San Jose, San Francisco, Oakland, and Sacramento, all within 75 minutes. I would check all four for flights, because sometimes there’s a big difference in price. Sacramento has the least amount of traffic, almost none. The other three just depend on the time of day. The traffic is heaviest between 2 PM – 8 PM.

Theresa Wallace will perform a 100-mph barefoot run on Saturday, August 17 after the jump event.  The company will be doing some filming during the tournament.

Wednesday 14 – Site familiarization 9 AM – 4 PM
Wednesday 14 ABC Board Meeting Jerry’s House 8 AM – 4 PM
Thursday 15 – 1st day of tournament

From the ABC:

2013 U.S. Barefoot Nationals Changes Lake

Due to unforeseen circumstances beyond the control of the American Barefoot Club and Local Organizing Committee (LOC), the venue for the 2013 Barefoot Water Ski National Championships has been forced to move from Diablo Shores, Brentwood, CA, to the Mossdale Quarry Lakes located at 96 W. Mossdale Rd. Lathrop, CA 95330.

The host hotel and arriving airports will remain the same. This venue is located about 35 minutes from the host hotel. Again the ABC and LOC sincerely apologize for any inconveniences this change will cause, but it is unavoidable. Unfortunately, changing the host hotel would be very costly due to the contract negotiated over a year ago and cause significant inconvenience to people who have already booked their rooms, thus the reason to keep the host hotel the same. In an effort to help competitors understand why the Nationals has undergone two substantial changes, please feel free to contact ABC President Joe Malenfant at with any of your questions.
