The Kamloops Waterski Club (KWSC) has existed in one form or another since the early 1970s.
Located on Shumway Lake, the current incarnation of the club was formed in 1982 and has about 15 members.
“After being dormant in 2008 and 2009, we’re just starting to see the club grow again,” KWSC president Paul Dixon said.
“We have quite a few families interested, which is great because it’s important that we promote water-skiing at the grassroots level.”
The Kamloops club is hosting the Water Ski and Wakeboard B.C. wakeboarding and barefoot-skiing provincial championships on Aug. 10 and Aug. 11.
Organizers are also interested in holding the provincial water-skiing, ski-jumping and trick-skiing championships in 2014.
