WINTER WONDERLAND DOWN AT OUR CLUB

Our Magic Ramp is freeeezing !

Golden Falls Waterski Club is up there at fierce altitude¬† near Ballymore Eustace in County Kildare – nose bleeds are common when you finally get up there ! That’s why its covered in snow right now with a lot more on the way. Some estimate that its about 600 meters above sea level. Mount Everest is only a bit higher. Just a few days ago, Daryl Higgins, Dave Higgins and Lia Saurin somehow made it all the way to the Clubhouse – and we have photos to prove it. Just put on some warm cloths and check out our Photo Gallery here on site.

We found these photos by accident on FaceBook – thanks to Lia and her camera – and if you have any good Winter shots, do send them to us so that we can share them here on our Club Website.

Daryl Higgins succeeded in collecting his Skis as he heads to the Airport this weekend for two months training on the warmer waters of the famous McCormick’s Waterski School at Seffner near Tampa on Florida’s west coast. Good luck to Daryl and we look forward to his reports along the way. Daryl will be back with us in February as he has to attend a Coaching Ireland Tutors Course over the following months at the University of Limerick.
