PENTICTON, B.C. *- Watercross racing takes a tour north of the border Aug. 12 and 13 on Skaha Lake. A number of watercross classes will hit the cool, serene lake in one of the most beautiful venues in the Pacific Northwest. Competition classes are expected to include Pro/Am Women, Novice Women, Novice Limited, Novice Superstock, Expert Limited, Expert Superstock, Beginner, Pro/Am Superstock and Masters Ski Stock. There will be cash pay-outs in Expert and Pro/Am classes. Technical inspections will be conducted. More than 14 of Western Canada's top novice and expert riders are expected to compete, said event spokeswoman Annie Bailey of Nelson, B.C. "Skaha Lake is an awesome site," Bailey said. "You won't believe how great." The entry fee is $30 (Canadian) or about $27 U.S. Bailey said she's hoping a large contingent of Region 3 racers from Washington, Oregon and Idaho also turn out for the competition about an hour north of the U.S.-Canadian border. According to Bailey, U.S. competitors need government-issued identification and a birth certificate to enter Canada. Acceptible forms of identification include driver's licenses, passports, birth certificates, etc. Bailey said there are numerous hotels available, but rooms in the resort area fill up quickly during summer months. There will also be on-site camping. "Penticton is super busy during the summer," she said. "Book rooms well in advance."
