OGDEN, UTAH – GOODE Skis has announced that it has become an “Official” sponsor of the O’Brien Big DAWG Series, presented by Ski Nautique. GOODE has been a sponsor of the Big DAWG Series since its inception 4 years ago.
“GOODE is excited to be officially back onboard with the Big DAWG Series.”, said Dave Goode, President/Founder of GOODE Ski Technologies. “It was a bit awkward at the beginning of this season.”, Goode continues. “O’Brien stepped up to be the title sponsor which left GOODE sitting in the unusual position of having to be a sponsor for a tournament with another ski company holding the title of the series. It took me some time, along with some persistence from Greg Davis, to realize that GOODE really needs to be involved with this great Series as an “Official” event sponsor. GOODE is very proud to be back in 2009!”, Goode concludes.
With the two Big DAWG qualifying events complete, the stage is set for the finals, to be held August 13-14, 2009, during the 67th GOODE Water Ski National Championships held at Okeeheelee Park, in West Palm Beach, FL.
More Big DAWG Finalists will be using GOODE Skis than any other brand of water skis. David Miller (CAN) had the highest score in the qualifying events with 4 buoys @ 41′ off and uses a GOODE 9900SL and PowerShell 5 Boots. In 2006, Mike Morgan won the first ever Big DAWG finals event using a GOODE 9800. In 2008, Ben Favret won the Big DAWG finals on his GOODE 9900SL.
GOODE has something very special planned for the Big DAWG Night Head-to-Head Finals. Stay tuned, more to follow….
