The Canyon Lake Wakeboard Club is hosting it’s final tournament of the year Saturday at the Lake Elsinore Channel. Riders of all ages and abilities will be competing for points and prizes as they finish up a great season of riding.
The Wakeboard Club has been supporting the sport in our community for years and their volunteers work tirelessly because of a love for the sport. A lot of great wakeboarders call Canyon Lake home and have developed their skills over the years riding in the club tournaments… guys like Jacob and Eddie Valdez who grew up on the backwaters of Canyon Lake. Great riders and instructors like Brent Baum and Noah Petrich help support the club activities and events throughout the year.
The Lake Elsinore channel is a great location for contests because of ample parking, easy access, and a panoramic view of the action. If you want to check out the tourney this weekend, head down to the channel next to Storm Stadium after 9:00 am. If you want to get in on the action and get a few pulls behind the boat, get there at 8:00 am for registration.
Check out the Wakeboard Club’s website for more information about this weekend and their other events.
If you’re hungry after riding or watching the action in the channel, head next door to Storm Stadium for their annual Oktoberfest celebration from 11:00 am to 6:00 pm Saturday… or come back Sunday from 11:00 am to 4:00 pm. Showcase breweries include Hangar 24, Bootleggers Brewery, Karl Strauss, New Belgium, and Sam Adams.
You can expect great German food, an Oompa band and lots of great activities for all ages in typical Storm Stadium fashion. There will also be a wide variety of local artisans, crafters, and businesses with their own booths.
The Rotary Club of Lake Elsinore has sponsored this great event for three years running and it never disappoints. You can purchase tickets on site. Admission is only $5.00 – beers and food are separate. Or you can purchase one of the taster packages. Bring your lederhosen and please drink responsibly.
