Established in 1949, Stockton Water Ski Club, is the 2nd oldest water ski club in the United States. Residing in the heart of the California Delta west of Stockton, CA the club is close enough for an easy day excursion or weekend camping trip.
We need headcount for the Sunday Potluck so please go to our Facebook page or email Linda Fisher @ firstname.lastname@example.org. The club is cooking tri-tip and each family needs to bring a dish to share.
Make room on the docks
When you arrive on the island on holiday weekends, remember we have a lot of boats to accommodate. When possible, stern in, or offer to let others side tie to you. If you are bringing guests, they should plan to side tie to you to leave dock space for members. Your cooperation is appreciated by all.
Our new SWSC Swag has arrived
We will have our new shirts available for sale this coming weekend. We have had a lot of you ask for new shirts, so come on out and get one!

5th Annual Father’s Day weekend Cook-off
On Saturday, June 18th there will be a BBQ cook-off/potluck for the cook entrants, family and 3 guests. While the chefs are cooking you can enjoy cornhole and horseshoes as well as water skiing, wake boarding, or even wake surfing. Here are the rules for those who want to compete:
Bring your own raw ribs
Cooking time for raw meat starts at 10AM following meat inspection
Come help kick off another summer of fun on our island. Your Board of Directors will provide dinner on Sunday afternoon at about 4:30 (island time of course). Please note that this is not a potluck as usual, so all you have to do is let us know you are coming . Please email Shawn Springer by Wed. May 26 and let him know how many are coming so we can purchase the right amount of food. BYOB and plan to play volleyball, horseshoes, corn hole, and of course water ski or wakeboard.

Island Facilities and Equipment
Thank you to the some 25 members who came out last month and helped with island clean-up. Due to poor weather we had to cancel the second weekend so there are still repairs that are needed. We will post a list of “Things to do” on the back clubhouse door. Please note that the use of the mowers and tractors is reserved for the Island Maintenance crew. We are asking all members to check with a Board Member if you are in need of one of these. We have also found the club house left in quite a mess a couple of times recently so be sure kids and adults leave it better than you found it.
We love having members bring out guests to our island. We are asking that on busy weekends and events that guests are side tied to the member boat so that our members have space to dock. Your cooperation will be appreciated by all members.
As you know, COVID has played havoc with our club’s ability to hold events at the island as well as put on our major fundraiser, the Crab Feed. We normally raise over $10,000 annually and use the funds to hold club-sponsored events as well as maintain and improve our island facilities. We are hopeful that we will be able to carry out the social calendar as planned, at least starting in May. In addition, your Board of Directors is pushing to complete the inside work at the clubhouse before the season opens!
With that in mind, we are asking each member (family) to consider making a donation to the club in lieu of the money you might have spent at events since last spring. For each donation, a special “Star Member” sticker will be awarded which can be proudly displayed on your boat!
Yes, I would like to make a tax deductible donation today and become a “Star Member”!

New Member Rules & Regs
The Rules and Regs were recently modified (10/15) to read the following: “A new member will be probationary for 12 months after date of joining and will not be eligible to sponsor a new member during this time.”
Sponsoring New Members
It is important for sponsors to help their new members by introducing them to other members, learning the Rules and Regs, as well as to being a model for and encouraging participation in club events as well as volunteering to help.
SWSC continues to welcome club members to bring guests to the island. Please be responsible for making sure that the Rules and Regs are followed. Guest may not use the island without the inviting member being present. Guest tents must be removed after each visit to leave room for paying members.
Someone dropped a women’s ring under the shade trees near the beach on Labor Day weekend. If you are that person, please contact Linda at email@example.com with your name and description of the ring.
