The sport of competitive show skiing was born when the first Wisconsin State Water Ski Show Tournament was held in July of 1967. Wisconsin Rapids native Jack Lukes was instrumental in creating the tournament, helping write the tournament rules, and securing endorsement of the Wisconsin Water Ski Federation. Seven clubs from Wisconsin competed in the tournament, using those rules which contained elements used in today's scoring system. The Wisconsin State Water Ski Show Championships have grown into the largest tournament of its kind in the world, while Lake Wazeecha has become known as one of the top venues in the country for show skiing. Thanks to Jack Lukes' commitment to the sport he loved, thousands of skiers, fans and spectators come to Red Sands Beach every summer to enjoy the competition and entertainment on the water.
