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.

Father’s Day Cook Off – Saturday June 17

Chair: Theresa Springer

Each cook entrant will need to bring his or her own raw meat, which will be either ribs or tri-tip.  There will be a potluck dinner only for the cook entrants and their families plus 3 guests. The following rules were adopted:

  1. Bring your own raw meat.
  2. Cooking time for raw meat starts at 10:00 am, following inspection of the meat.
  3. Cooking time is a 6 hour limit, ending at 4:00 pm.
  4. All preparation and cooking will be done at the island.
  5. There are two choices for meat, either ribs or tri-tip.
  6. The potluck dinner will begin at 4:10 pm, so the meat can rest and be cut for serving.

A prize for first place and for second place will be awarded.

Island Clean-Up

In spite of rain, wind and high tides, we really got a lot done at Island Clean-Up.  Trees were cut, grass cut, weeds sprayed, tables and benches pressure washed and sealed, more trees planted, upgrades to the restrooms made, sheds inventoried, and best of all, lots of fun was had by us all.  Many thanks to Shawn and Teresa Springer for organizing the crews and to Stephanie and Teresa for feeding us all lunches.  Here are the people who volunteered:

Shawn & Teresa Springer • Jason & Jennifer Kerby • Jim & Olga Derby • Pete & Kristen Disch • Roger & Linda Fisher • Jim and Lori Balch • Thom Folks • Jacob & Sara Wiebe • Marcie Lopez • Mike Minnema • Manuel Gamez • Sim Risso • Sim Risso, Jr. • Tracy Trantham  • Pat Garcia • Dennis Johnson • Jason Davidson • Chris Kelly • Donnie & Tomo Villarin • Stephanie Chastain • Lori Burkart • Jeff & Nicole Greenberg • Bob Dowling • Brad Hellwig • Dale Balcao • Larry Reynolds • Kirk Greene • Larry Reynolds • Ben Weisner • Matt Hall • Monet Fisher

A New Generator at Last!

Out with the old, in with the new!  This is what it takes to get it done – A barge, a crane, a tractor and lots of muscle!  One step closer to getting back to normal.

A HUGE thanks to Brad Hellwig, Jim Balch, Jim Derby, Jason Kerby, and Chris Kelly for taking the time to get this done!



Event Chairs Needed

Event chairs still needed for the Luau (8/5) and Labor Day (9/2-9/4)

Please email Linda Fisher if you will volunteer @


Guest Camping

We want to remind our members that we always welcome their guests to camp with them on the island but, they are guests, and should not be leaving their tents up when they leave.  Our first priority is to provide camping space, tables, and barbecues for our members.  Thank you for helping with this.
