image006Straight from the “where did the time go department,”  IJSBA releases this updated to prepare the PWC Racing Community for what is shaping up to be one of the biggest World Finals in history.  We just crossed fifty days before the gates open and would like to share with you the following news and information.  Please pass it on to your friends and colleagues- especially the procrastinators who will otherwise be asking this information at the last minute.

  1. Participation in the 2015 quakysense World Finals requires that a competitor previously participated in two IJSBA sanctioned events in 2015.  If you have not already done this you really need to get to one of the remaining events this year.  United States and Canadian competitors will have their event participation verified with the race results submitted to IJSBA International Competitors will have their eligibility verified by the IJSBA Affiliate office.  We strongly urge competitors to ensure that you are compliant with the criteria before entering World Finals.
  2. California State Championships are August 22, 2015 in Tracy California.  They are held at the Mossdale Quarry Park.  Although it is a one day event, there is a separate night competition, that evening, which will count, separately, towards eligibility.  For more information, please visit:  http://www.ijsba.com/2015/08/14/organizers-of-the-california-state-championships-and-night-race-august-22-send-reminders/

  3. US National Championships are a qualifying event for World Finals eligibility.  The US National Championships are going to be quite spectacular this year as they are being produced by the P1 Aqua X group which as been taking the North American racing scene by storm with their amazing production qualities.  The US National Championship and accompanying P1 Aqua X race will count towards World Finals eligibility.  If a World Finals competitor is racing in a closed course category, and is using a P1 competition as a qualifying event, then the other event must be a closed course race.  The US National Championships will be held in Cocoa Beach, Florida, on September 18-21.  For more information, please visit http://www.p1grandprix.com/.
  4. The very popular Hydrodrags will hit Polk City, Florida, on September  5-6 at the Waterski Hall Of Fame.  The Hydrodrag National Championship  will count towards World Finals eligibility.  If a World Finals competitor is racing in a closed course category, and is using they Hydrodrag competition as a qualifying event, then the other event must be a closed course race.  For more information, please visit facebook.com/HydroDrags or email mpyoungjr@aol.com.
