The Australia New Zealand Water Ski Challenge are putting the word out there:

Canberra will host its first international water skiing event this weekend (8-10 February) when Australia lines up against New Zealand on the Molonglo River.

The Australian New Zealand Water Ski Challenge will feature the Australian pair, 2012 “International Water Skier of the Year” Tim Bradstreet and U21 world number one jump champion, Jacinta Carroll.

Four Canberrans have been selected to represent Australia, with Bianca Mullach and Archie Davis included in the under 17 team and Charlie and Mack Davis competing for the under 14 team.

Secretary of Water Ski ACT Paul Davis said the competition would be of the highest calibre.

That also struck me as odd, especially given the exemption/permission given to the ski club to use Lake Ginninderra for practice due to the poor water quality at Molonglo Reach. (Ski boats on Lake G is great idea IMO.)

So the river has been closed for 3 (pretty sure this is the 3rd) summers now due to low water levels, but it’s ok to be used for a competition.
