A message from Greg Meloon, President of Nautique Boat Company:
The health, safety and well-being of everyone is our top priority at Nautique Boat Company. As you are all aware, the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak has become a matter of great concern around the world. Our hearts and prayers go out to those who have been impacted by this virus and especially those who have lost loved ones.
Nautique Boat Company cares deeply about your overall well-being. It is a priority for Nautique to stay informed with trustworthy, reliable information on this topic. Our information and best practices are coming from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the World Health Organization (WHO), and the Georgia Department of Public Health, as well as Harris County authorities.
As a result of this group effort and based upon information from these sources that are grounded in facts provided by official agencies, we have decided to take the necessary steps of postponing the 61st Masters Waterski & Wakeboard Tournament™.
We are currently working with Callaway Gardens, in addition to the sanctioning Federations and Associations, to finalize a date later in the year to host the most prestigious water ski and wakeboard tournament in the world.
For those who have already purchased tickets for the event, we will honor them for the new date.
This moment in our history transcends sport. This is a time for all of us to come together and take care of each other. Your unwavering support has always meant the world to us, but never more so than now.
I thank you and send you all best wishes during this difficult time, and I look forward to seeing you all at the 61st Masters this fall.
Nautique Boat Company, Inc.
**Due to the postponing of the 61st Nautique Masters, the 3rd annual Nautique Masters Wakeboard LCQ held in Orlando, Florida will also be pushed back to a later date. This date will be announced once the new dates for the Nautique Masters have been set.
