2015 will bring changes to the yearly structure of events at Great Lakes Watercross. The focus will be on open events that incompass all aspects of the Personal Watercraft life style. The racing will continue, but not as the sole activity of weekend events.
Working with area City's and Personal Watercraft businesses, we will continue producing events that will include Surf Rides on Lake Michigan, more Freestyle type events that will include, but not limited to Watercraft Closed Course Racing. The cost to conduct these type of events will be less, thus the cost to participant will be less also. A place to hang with other Jet Skiers with minimal event structure, but with water and land permits so nobody receives a ticket.
The Personal Watercraft Racing Series will no longer be main focus of our summer, having said that I will encourage all core racers to join together in running and supporting club style racing events. The owner of the Lure on Lake Petenwell has set aside weekends for all Closed Course Racers to continue to enjoy that wonderful Jet Ski racing site.
Thank you to all of the racers who have supported PWC racing here in the mid-west for the past 12 years, yes that's how long we have been racing. Great Lakes Watercross in the oldest and longest running Personal Watercraft Racing Series in the United States of America.
Thank you to all the people who helped staff and build the racing events, from Kenosha,WI up to Sheboygan, over to Waconia MN through LaCrosse and back down to Prairie DuChien. Over the past few years without your help, none of this would have ever come to fruition.
Please feel free to e-mail me if you would like to be a part of club racing in the coming summer.
Sincerely, Scott Hyke.
