INT Arkansas: Heber Wake Fest on Greers Ferry Lake
Greers Ferry Lake, AR (Aug. 1-2, 2009) -Wake it up Greers Ferry Lake! The INT League is coming to town for the 3rd Annual Heber Wake Fest on Greers Ferry Lake, a wakeboard and wake skate event. The Wake Fest will be held at Sandy Beach. This event will be the 5th & 6th 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. The competition aims to provide a forum where riders can improve their riding ability level, learn new tricks and meet new friends. Riders will show off their tricks and style for bragging rights and a trophy! Pro and outlaw riders will show off their stuff to win $17,000 in prize money.
INT is using a slightly different format at this event. Amateur riders will be given two passes and the opportunity to post on score on Saturday. The top 3 riders in each division will proceed to a finals round on Sunday to determine who will be crowned the Heber Wake Fest winners.
Pro Participants will have four passes or four falls, whichever comes first, and will be scored on the INT point system. They will have the opportunity to post a score on Saturday and another score on Sunday morning. We will then take the best score of the two days to determine our top 10 finalists. The top 10 will then go on to a finals round on Sunday to see who will be the lucky rider awarded the BIG MONEY!
Competitors can register online at www.intleague.com/arkansas. Onsite registration and check-in will open at 7:00am Saturday for all Entro and Novice riders and 8:15 for all other divisions. The tournament will commence at 8:00am with the opening ceremonies. The running order will be announced onsite on Saturday morning. Spectators are welcome. Paid camping is available on Greers Ferry Lake. The park will charge a small entrance fee of $10, valid Saturday and Sunday.
