                                     Lake Wedowee Air Junkeys (LWAJ) 
                                     We are devoted to water fun on Lake Wedowee, AL.  
                                                                             (some might say obsessed)
                                                                     

  • Ski Fun Days are for boats with riders that want to show off tricks for other riders!
  • The day's schedule is below all the action pictures. 
  • Come check in with Wild Woman!  (The colorful 'Air Junkey' boat with the parrot on the sides) 

 
  

We had an informal ski meet in 2007, and the Lake Wedowee Air Junkeys were born. 
Since then we've grown into a group of friends who have hosted two USAW Grass Roots Ski
Tournaments and five Cardboard Boat Regatta Races. 
So join in the fun and let's get wet and wild !

This is our 12th year of meet ups and hanging out as a ski group.  We are a small group of active riders meeting to share riding tips and tricks by jumping on each other's boats, trading kids and equipment, etc.  Then we get to know each other better at our lazy cove for an afternoon float/lunch.  It's our lake family!! 
            
10:30am CST   We sorta gather in our fav spot,and ride as we wish.  We leave some members/boats swimming/anchored to hang out.
Others Show off, trade tips, catch a ride on a boat you admire, meet new friends with similar interests.
