The two round prelims will take place Friday at LymanLand, and the top 12 men and top eight women will move on to the semi-finals on Black Warrior Saturday morning. The top four men and women competitors will move on to the finals later
that afternoon.

“It’s going to be a part of the big Fourth of July celebration,” event director April Coble-Eller said. “We will be on the water all day doing our professional event, and also wakeboard exhibition and dueling trick 
ski show.”

The competition will be live on webcast and will feature 50 of the top men and women skiers from 25
different countries competing this weekend.

“We can ski all over the world,” Coble-Eller said. “We like to take our tournament to the crowd, we heard Tuscaloosa on July 4th has a great festival with a lot of people there, so we are 
bringing the best of
 both worlds.”
