Administrators Horton Posted June 25, 2008 Administrators Share Posted June 25, 2008 Hey guys, This weekend the Pro Tour event in Alabama is going to be web cast again by Tom Grey and his crew. Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â I don't know if any of you caught the web cast last weekend, but it was unreal!! Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â Seriously it was some of the best coverage I've seen in the last ten years, including the shows we used to have on ESPN. Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â I was at the site and chose to watch the tournament on the TV because of the instant replays and interviews! The coverage, as a whole, was 10 times more professional than I thought it could be and these guys are doing live editing with killer instant replays, interviews, camera angles, the whole bit. Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â This past weekend they tried an experiment... pay per view. Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â They did get some interest, but not enough people knew about the event being web cast to really show what we can do. Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â I know free is always better, but the reality is to get the tour off the ground and running we need this type of coverage and these guys have thousands upon thousands of dollars of gear that they are hauling to and from events in an effort to grow the sport. Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â If we can get more people to know the event is happening and more people to tune in on sunday we can keep this type of professionalism and have a chance at reaching and signing non-industry sponsors and really getting some momentum going for professional water skiing. When you tune into the pay per view webcast (on sunday only, saturday is free) you pay with a paypal account, which anyone who has done internet purchasing knows that paypal is the safest most secure way to do an online transaction. Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â I'm asking that all of you pass this information on to everyone you know that is interested in slalom, jump, water skiing, or even if they just owe you a favor!!! The cost to watch the web cast all day will be less than a couple of gallons of gas! Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â You won't be able to drive down the street and pay for parking cheaper than you can tune in and catch all the finals action on sunday. The link to the web cast is: http://www.webcast-tv.com/ Please pass this information on, and lets show the organizers, industry and athletes that professional water skiing can succeed in this new digital era.
