On January 17, 2004, the Tenth Annual Eskimo Escapades Shut Up & Ski! Winter water ski charity event will be held in downtown Knoxville, Tennessee at Volunteer Landing. Skiers can water ski, kneeboard, wakeboard, barefoot or tube around a half mile course towed by 2004 MasterCrafts, Malibu or Correct Craft competition tow boats driven by members of Skiers of Knoxville, Inc. or the University of Tennessee Water Ski Team. Skiers raise a minimum of $35 in donations to benefit two great causes – The Dream Connection which fulfills dreams of seriously ill children in East Tennessee and the Patricia Neal IRC, which provides recreational opportunities to individuals with disabilities. Each skier gets a free T-Shirt designed by ET Graphics, which features Mr. Eskimo sliding on his wakeskate (with Ms. Eskimo driving the boat). There will be special prizes for individuals who raise lots of money!
After the ride, each participant can warm up in a hot tub furnished by Aurora Pools & Spas. There will also be a limited number of wet suits provided by Ski/Scuba, Inc. as well as life jackets, skis and tubes for use furnished by the Patricia Neal IRC. Skiers and riders should feel free to bring their own equipment, and remember your life jacket! There will be barbecue, coffee and hot chocolate available for purchase furnished by L.B. Steele Catering. There will also be apparel for sale as well.
