2nd Annual Mississippi Ski Riders “Deer Island Takeover”
September 3 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm
Join us for the 2nd annual Mississippi Ski Riders “Deer Island Takeover”! This is not one of our typical group rides, but more of a jet-skier social event where riders create their own route, then come and go as they please. The peak gathering hours on the island are 11:00am-1:00pm, but there’s nothing wrong with coming a little early or staying a little late!
On the western tip of Deer Island we’ll have all of our festivities. LIVE MUSIC starts at 11:00am. Our musician/band isn’t confirmed yet, but we have asked Gram Rea to fit us in his busy schedule and join us for some island tunes 🎶. Raffles for jet-ski apparel and accessories will also take place. Raffle tickets will be sold starting at 11:00am. Drawings will take place at approximately 12:15pm. Winners have to be present at the time of the drawing to receive their prize.
*Remember, it’s also the beginning of Labor Day weekend so there will be plenty of other watercraft and people filling up the island and joining our party 🎉.
