FALL RIVER: Youth from the Fall River and area community donned their wet suits and were ready to get wet during a recreation tournament on Lake Fletcher in Fall River on Aug. 26.

The competitors all gathered at the Lovett house on Lockview Road for the tournament, put on by Waterski Wakeboard Nova Scotia (WSWNS) on a beautiful sunny Saturday in late August.

Those signed up also did Trick Skis early in the afternoon, before things wrapped up with awards being handed out shortly before 2 p.m.

A BBQ with hot dogs and hamburgers, along with water kept the competitors fueled and hydrated during the day. With all the smiling faces, it was clear to see that all had fun getting out on the water.
