It would be interesting to hear the viewpoint of current / former State Coordinators to determine what the upside is.  I was approached by Rick back in 1996.  I ran a pretty successful NSL tour in NW Louisiana and NE Texas.  The upfront costs of INT didn't make business sense to me at that time.  Under the NSL program, I was able to gather sponsors, enlist sites, obtain promo boats, direct mail skiers thru AWSA mailing lists (as well as boat dealer's lists), collect entry fees and the only upfront cost to me was the sanction fee ($20) and my time.

I was the coordinator for MI for several years.  If someone wants to know of my experience, I will tell them.  However, everyone has their own experience and mine is not typical. 

 The INT has a great mission and it suceeds in bringing in a lot of new people into the sport.  Here in MI, a good percentage of the newer blood in the AWSA tournaments are INT'ers that "graduated."  I still get a lot of requests to take it back again so younger kids and whole families have a better experience getting going.  The reason for this is:

Green buoys (13' inward of reds)
Wakeboarding (everyone can participate, even non-slalom)
Non-technical and understandable rules
Easy entry into judging and other support activities

My career path changed so I travel constantly, and the position requires a lot of time and effort.  AWSA tournaments require less up-front time and cost, but take more structure with officials.  I really enjoyed running INT tournaments, but cannot dedicate the time right now.

E-mail me for my phone number if anyone wants to talk.

The NSL tournaments I ran were very similar in nature to the fledgling INT League.  We had our own handicapped scoring system that allowed the skier to move up in levels without becoming uncompetitive.  The levels were well determined and easy to comprehend.  Mulligans were allowed for the lower levels as well as the "mini" course (green buoys).  Since the tournaments were sanctioned as Class "F", we weren't held to the same standards as other AWSA tournaments.  That said, we always tried to provide a "Class C" environment (tolerances/driving) for the skier so when he "graduated" to AWSA tournaments, it would shorten the learning curve. 

I applaud the efforts of the INT League in general and the State Coordinators in particular.  There is no doubt that the INT has provided growth opportunities beyond that of USAWS.
