Tri-City Riders will throw a wake boarding competition called Wake The Desert on July 21. People of all ages can compete and there’s a $1,000 purse for the “open” class. If you’re not that confident in your abilities, don’t worry!

The classes are as follows: grom for children 12 and under; beginners (no spins or inverts); intermediate for up to three spins or inverts; advanced for up to seven spins or inverts; the women’s division and finally advance & open, which are open to semi-pro and professional competitors.

Meet at the Mud Hole across from Sageport on Columbia Park Trail. Registration is from 8:30-9:30 a.m. and the competition begins at 10:00. For more information visit the Tri-City Rider’s website
