Moses Lake, WA - Wake it up Moses Lake! The INT League is coming to town for the first Washington Wake Fest on Moses Lake, a wakeboard and wake skate event. The Wake Fest will be held at Connelly Park. This event will be the third stop on the INT 2009 tour.
The INT League offers divisions for wakeboarders and wake skaters from novice all the way up to pro. Each division is based on ability level, providing a non-intimidating environment for participants to compete against competitors of similar ability levels. INT offers divisions for both kids and adults. INT events are competitions to improve your riding ability level, learn new tricks and meet new friends. Riders can show off the tricks and style for bragging rights, big prizes, and a trophy!
INT is using a slightly different format for this event to give riders more time on the water; each rider will have two rounds to log their best score. Round one will go on Saturday and round two on Sunday. Each round will be 4 minutes long, with the potential to do 20-24 tricks per round (depending on the division). There will be no fall limits! Riders will be scored according to trick points (each trick is assigned a point value), and style: composition, amplitude and technicality.
The best score of the two rounds will determine which riders advance to the final round. The top 3 riders in each division will go onto the final round on Sunday. The final round will be two passes and 2 falls (standard INT format.)
Competitors can register online at www.intleague.com/Washington. Onsite registration and check-in will open at 7:30am Saturday. The tournament will commence at 8:30am with the National Anthem. The running order will be announced onsite on Saturday morning. Spectators are welcome. Paid camping is available at the state park. The park will charge a $3.00 park entrance fee. Ages 12 and under are free. Entry is charged daily.
