CF Patient News

Gavin became the Georgia State Champion for his wakeboard division (called Mini Outlaws- "Outlaws" are the highest division in amateur before going pro......, so the youngest group are called Mini Outlaws)! He had a great day and posted his best score ever in a tournament despite a run in with some choppy water!!! It was awesome! He was pretty mad when he finished his run, because he didn't have time to complete his last 2 tricks due to the rough conditions, but after asking "do you think that I can still take first place?" and my telling him that he had a very good chance of it - he calmed down a little bit.

So - he's officially been invited to compete for Georgia in the National Championships in California...........looks like we're headed out west in October!!
