Despite rainy and windy weather, the Chetek Hydroflites Water Ski Show Team took to the water for the first time, unveiling their 2019 themed show, titled “Skiloose,” with their first nightly show on Sunday, June 9. They also performed at the Aquafest celebration on Rice Lake the afternoon of June 9, following the parade. The Hydroflites will be providing family fun and entertainment in more than 20 ski shows this summer as they return dozens of ski team members from last year’s squad. Pictured above, the ballet line hangs on tightly as they are pulled off of the floating barge and head into the water for their routine. Skiers, from left to right, are Brooke Hanson, Anna Jaeger, Sabrina Hince, Kayla Stankowski, Rylee Buchman, Eric Schiebel, Samantha Garland, Kaitlyn Thielig, Emma Haselhuhn, Annika Moe and Hailey Hince. Once again this summer, both Thursday and Sunday themed shows will begin at 6 p.m., with preshow performances beginning around 5 p.m.
