Repair Backwater Gamblers Water Ski Site
Flash flooding and an ice jam overnight caused flash flooding damage at the Backwater Gamblers Water Ski site. The ice and water damaged property, tore apart a section of bleachers, took down light poles, moved trailers, damaged a retaining wall, and caused a dock to be lost. The team now needs to assess the damage, figure out the cost, and start the clean up, but, this isn’t something the team budgets for.
Donations are being collected on GoFundMe.
