Year in Review 2012


Bruce Anderson



BAPWA's primary purpose is to promote water safety and to give Jet Ski owners an opportunity to have family fun with coordinated and planned rides.

This year 2012 we had:

14 planned ride events.

Averaged 22 riders per event.

Traveled over 1,605 miles total on the planned rides. (22 riders X 1,605 miles = 35,310 miles)

20 Yamaha's, 19 SeaDoo's, 8 Honda's, 6 Kawaski's and 1 Polaris.

We also had several get togethers as a group in addition to the regular rides.

Well we ended up delaying the ride one week due to weather. We also changed up the ride by having lunch befor the 1 pm start of the ride. The weather was great and the ride was great with 19 riders. Many people liked the later start for a Sunday ride.

Colorado River

Wallisville Ride

June 9, 2012

We had a wonderful time on this ride. The ride and water were perfect.
The beach stops and the time we all spent swimming and socializing was so much fun! It was apparent that so many others felt the same way. We really enjoy how these rides differ from each other.
Thanks to all for another great day on the water with friends!

We had a great ride yesterday with 31 riders on 25 pwc ‘s. Though it was a short ride for most. 10 people went on out to Red Fish Island area after lunch and enjoyed another couple of hours before calling it quits.


Morgan City Weekend

July 21-22, 2012

Paul and I just wanted to tell you all what a fun time we had in Morgan City. It was a fun time with a really really great group! From the dinners together, social hours in the evening and was a great trip. When we started out Saturday morning, no one complained about launching in the rain. That's why the skies cleared up for us!
You were all so so very good natured when Mother Nature(Hydrilla) changed our route a few times! It was kind of exciting to see what the next corner was going to be like. We were still able to enjoy good smooth water, good food and most of all GREAT fun with friends.
