Chain Skimmers Kick Off 45th Season May 24th
By: Maggie Peplow
Sunday of Memorial Day Weekend is the start of the Chain Skimmers’ 45th season! The Chain Skimmers originated in 1970 at the Eagle River T-docks and quickly become one of the best amateur ski shows in Northern Wisconsin. In 1979, the team decided to purchase Lake Pleasant and the surrounding 107 acres. August 5, 1994 was a landmark day in the Chain Skimmers’ history, because we were able to make the final payment on the land. Since then, the Chain Skimmers are able to call the 107 acres surrounding Lake Pleasant, “home.”
Our success has not come easily, but it has been made possible due to teamwork, dedication, and continued support from our local communities, parents, and of course our audience! As a non-profit organization, our skiers donate their time, effort, and talents. All our proceeds go back into producing a quality show, which we perform throughout the summer, beginning with our first show on Sunday of Memorial Day Weekend (5pm) and our final show is Labor Day Weekend. Our regularly scheduled shows during the summer are every Tuesday, Thursday, and Sunday at 7pm starting June 11th. We are located 3 miles north of Conover, 12 miles north of Eagle River on US Hwy 45.
