East Coast Pond Skimming Championships

2014 East Coast Pond Skimming Championships

Saturday, April 19, 2014

Location: The Landing (In front of Base Lodge)

Cost: Free!

With the title of King of Spring, Sugarloaf couldn't end the season without a goggle-tanning, skin burning spring event right in front of the Beach! Get your snorkels, jump skis, costumes and floaties ready for the East Coast Pond Skimming Championships at Sugarloaf on Saturday, April 19. Who could go wrong with flamingos, open water, prize tosses, Red Bull, trophies and people skimming across a pond? Nobody....that's who.

Only one Grand Champion will be crowned, so be sure to give it your all. Although, there are prizes for some other categories and prize tosses as well, so most will leave with some swag. Good luck!
