Little Crow

(Willmar MN-) After two weeks without a show, The Little Crow Water Ski Team will be putting on a show this Friday at Robbins Island Park in Willmar. The team has been crippled by high water levels that caused the Kandiyohi County Sheriff's Department to declare a no-wake restriction the The Crow River and several lakes. Little Crow's Stu Giere says "Due to “No-Wake” restrictions, the team’s home site in New London has been shut down until further notice....the team will be bringing all of its talents to the waters of Foot Lake, including giant human pyramids, ski jumping, bare footing, and more." Giere says the show, at Robbins Island Beach, starts at 7:30 p.m. Bring your own chair or blanket. He says it is open to all, and free will donations will be accepted...

...Giere says in terms of revenue, they lost whatever gate they would have received from last Friday's show, but the first show of the year, on the 31st, was going to be free. He says it looked they they might have been able to lift the no-wake restriction before last Friday's show, but rain earlier in the week prevented that from happening...

...Giere says they've been able to rehearse their comedy acts on shore and some of the skiing elements on other area lakes, but it's not the same...

...Giere says if the no-wake restriction is lifted next week, they willl likely do a show at Neer Park on the 21st, and then the Willmar Fest show on the 22nd, but doesn't think they would do back to back shows at Robbins Island if the restriction on The Crow River remains in place. This is the 40-year anniversary season for the Little Crow Water Ski Team.
