Hartwick Waterski Team Planning End-of-Season Community Celebration

huskysThe Hartwick Husky’s are making plans to hold a celebration event at the end of the summer this year. The local waterski team has made Manchester’s Schram Pond their home for the past several years, needing a new place to practice and perform after the Lake Delhi dam breached in 2010. The Hartwick Husky’s have not only held several shows each summer at Schram Pond, but they’ve also given back to the community by holding learn-to-ski programs for all ages. And they’ve been volunteering with improvements and maintenance at the pond. Club President Marty Pottebaum approached the Manchester City Council Monday night with a request to hold a celebration event after their final ski show of the upcoming season. The community event would have music, dancing and alcohol available for sale. Pottebaum says their crowds keep getting bigger, and he believes this would be a great way to entertain. He says the alcohol sales would also be a big fundraiser for the club – and with their insurance costs rising every year and travel expenses expected to increase this year as well, the fundraising would be a big help. The City Council supports the idea and a formal request will come to the council in the spring once the Hartwick Husky’s have all the necessary permits, licenses and insurance to hold such an event.
