Is there a waterski slalom course setup anywhere on the lake? I've seen reference to one in other places on the net, but haven't seen where.

Ron, There used to be one many years ago in a slough over by Goat Island somewhere. Someone else who lives over on that side of the lake may either know where it is or at least remember it.

Used to be one up in Pigeon Roost Creek by Big Bridge. Been years since I have been up that way.

So that is right upstream from Big Bridge, to the left going upstream? I don't make it up that way much, but if there is a course I may try it this year. Does anyone use it?

coming from the dam, go under the bridge and bear left (right takes you past the castle).

Put 34.056963,-87.066866 into google maps...

Zoom in all the way and you'll see the lane of buoys.

I found the course. More buoys than i was expecting, and someone was there (not running the course) so I couldn't take the time to try to figure it out. Wasn't as spread out as I expected either.
