East Coast Skimboarding Championships coming to Dewey Aug. 16-17 One of the most prestigious events in skimboarding, the East Coast Skimboard- ing championships, now in its 27th year, returns to the shores of Dewey Beach at 9 am., Saturday and Sunda5 Aug. 16 and 17, at Dagsworthy Street beach. The East Coast Skimboarding Champi- ouship is sanctioned by Delaware-based Skim USA, a nonprofit, all-volunteer or- ganization that serves as the sPort of skimboarding's national governing body. The Dewey Beach event is the grand fi- nals of the Zap Pro-Am tour, a series of eight East Coast skimboarding events which began in Florida in February.

"The East Coast championship is now an international event, and competitors must be a member in good standing of Skim USA Associa- tion and among the top 16 of their age divi- sion. These athletes began the road to the. championship back in February with the Boardwalk Blow Out in Indiatlantic, Fla., followed by the Panama City Spring Break Skim Jam." Many local skimboarding enthusiasts qualified for the championships by partic- ipating in either the South Side Shoot Out held in Indian River Inlet or the Long Beach Island Skim Jam held in Barnegat Light, N.J. Area skimmers who did not get a chance to participate in any pro-am tour qualifying events may still be able to com- pete in the championships by applying to fill open slots. These slots are created by any top 16 competitors who are unable to attend the championships. The slots will be announced and award- ed on a first come, first served basis. The entry fee for the championship is $35 for amateurs and $100 for profession- als. Entry forms can be found at area surf and skim shops or by visiting www.skimusa.org. The event is free to the public and spec- tators are encouraged to attend. This event is sponsored by many area businesses, including Alley-Oop Skir 0 Shop, Dewey Beach Lions Club, Central Self Storage, the Starboard Restaurant, Dewey Beach Surf Shop, Fins Fish House, The Beachcomber, Gary's Dewey Beach GriU, Grotto Pizza, Sharky's Grill Wings to Go, Atlantic Oceanside Motel, Dynamic Mortgage, Vavala's Beach Things, Dewey Beach Market, Electric Banana and Min- uteman Press.
