Think TankAttend to learn. Attend to give back. Attend to catch up with old friends. Attend because it's in a great location with more hotel room options and a waterpark. Chula Vista is ideally suited for hosting our event, offering sufficient meeting and expo space along with great restaurants and an atmosphere that allows for fostering camaraderie.

Attending Think Tank is a show of support for water skiing in general and, specifically, water skiing in Wisconsin.

Yes, you may register on-site ("at-the-door"). However, you will pay more. On-site registration for clinics only is $40. A limited number of recognition dinner meal tickets can be purchased on-site for $35. So, the total package "at-the-door" is $75.
