An emotional moment happened right before the final pairing for the Big Dawg Title. A beautiful Nautique 200 towed through the course an empty ski rope in memory of Andy Mapple and what he achieved in and meant not only to the sport of water skiing but to all those skiers he touch throughout his 30+ year career. It was an extremely special moment in the competition and something we will never forget.
