We are thrilled to bring Barefoot Nationals back to the Blue Moo! We have an extremely dedicated and experienced team of organizers who are committed to providing a world-class experience to all skiers and spectators.
Dates of the Event
The 2019 Barefoot Nationals will take place August 22 – 25, 2019.
The Blue Moo was built in 2008 for the sole purpose of hosting Barefoot Waterski events. The lake is only 30 meters wide and designed with 4-8 meter high banks that run parallel to the lake’s 860 meter length to keep wind exposure at a very low level. Wind penetration over the banks is nearly non-existent. The high banks also provide a perfect environment for spectators. Elevated by the banks, the bleacher seating giving spectators an unencumbered view of any run from start to finish. The Blue Moo was also designed to enhance the officials’ experience. Officials are only a few steps from the boat landing with covered boat barn, announcer’s tower, bleachers, jump ramp, food service, parking and restrooms.
The Blue Moo is located in Alma Center, Wisconsin. Black River Falls, just 15 minutes away, makes for a great host city as it is large enough to offer nice lodging and food but small enough to provide all participants that special “hometown” feel. The city of Black River Falls has 12 restaurants in the city limits. Within fifteen minutes of the hotel are seven more upscale supper clubs with great food and nightlife. Black River Falls has a city Brewery that provides weekly tours as well. Within twenty minutes of the site are several vacation home rentals that are available for large groups and families to rent. The host hotel, restaurants, casino, and other evening activities are just 15 minutes from the Blue Moo.
