State Championship Information / Chuck Morrow Services Announcement
This weekend the 2017 Georgia Wake Series reaches its conclusion with the final cable and boat stops happening on Saturday, and Sunday at Terminus and Lake Acworth, respectively. With the Series coming down to the wire and multiple State Championships still up for grabs, an exciting weekend is quickly approaching. Unfortunately, the excitement of this weekend has been dampened as we are sad to report the sudden passing of Ambush/Buywake President and CEO, Chuck Morrow.
Chuck was a pioneer and ambassador for wakeboarding for over 20 years. He came on the scene just as wakeboarding was taking its first few steps and fulfilled a role that only he could. Chuck was a true visionary for our sport and dedicated tremendous time, energy, and money toward the success of wakeboarding, particularly grassroots wakeboarding in the state of Georgia. Just to show you the dedication that Chuck and Ambush/Buywake placed in the local wakeboarding scene, in the past two years they have donated nearly $20,000 dollars to the Georgia Wake Series in the form of prizes for our winners. To say that Chuck was an ambassador and believer in our sport is a tremendous understatement. He was quite honestly, the right man doing the right things at a most important time in the sport. He will truly be missed.
Chuck's services take place this Sunday at Winkenhofer Pine Ridge Funeral Home (2950 N Cobb Pkwy Kennesaw, GA 30152). Visitation hours are 1:00pm-4:00pm with the funeral service at 4:00pm. In order to allow attendance, the Acworth Stop will be pre-registration only. Check in begins at 7:00 with all riders required to be present before the riders meeting in order to complete the Acworth/COE updated waiver and check in. A copy of the update Acworth waiver here, and will be available at Stop 6. Riding for Stop 7 will begin promptly at 8:30am. This will allow us to complete the tournament and awards ceremony and permit those who wish to attend Chuck's service.
