There are classes for everyone, from beginners to professionals and from junior to masters, anyone can join the race, it just requires a membership to IJSBA.

During a break in the racing action on both days, there will be demonstrations by Active Water Sports, Jetovator and Flyboard of Bend.  Active Water sports will be demonstrating wave surfing, Jetovator will be demonstrating a watersports accessory that when attached to a personal watercraft uses the water thrust system to take “pilots” high into the air and Flyboard will be flying on jet water powered wake board.   All three will be giving lessons for a fee to any one that wants to learn.

Several of last year’s racers went on to race at nationals in Lake Havasu in Arizona. See the video for highlights of last year’s nationals.

Coffee on the Point

October 27, 2013, 10:00 to Noon

coffee_cup-999pxSummer has passed and fall is upon us.  Life on the lake has left most of us feeling a little Green. With that in mind, we thought that we would invite you to another, “Coffee on the Point”.  Join us for a mingle with neighbors and engaging conversations.

Nothing fancy just stop by on Sunday October 27th between 10:00am and noon for a cup of coffee and a sweet treat and say hello to a few of your neighbors.  We have had so much fun with Potluck on the Point and such frustrations with the condition of the lake, it seems that a little get together wouldn’t be such a bad idea.  The coffee will be at Mitch and Dana Moore’s; the A-frame at 2929 NE Loop Drive on Sand Point. Come on by!

Devils Lake Dash Coming Soon

The fastest Jet Ski racers in the Pacific Northwest will hit Devils Lake for the first-ever Devils Lake Dash presented by Chinook Winds Casino and Resort.

“Chinook Winds is proud to be a partner in this inaugural event in Lincoln City,” Marketing Director Eric Smileuske said. “This is a fun-filled, community-based event and is a tremendous opportunity to introduce visitors to what Lincoln City has to offer.”

Even though the event about three months away ~ it’s scheduled for May 18-19 — dozens of the best personal watercraft racers and freestyle riders in the Pacific Northwest have already indicated they’ll be kicking off their seasons in Lincoln City.

“Several World Finals competitors have already committed to racing,” promoter Rogel’ Harnack of Riverside, Wash., said. “Look for pro rider Aaron Newport from the Tri-Cities to clean up in his class. And Oregon’s own Alisha Goering should be a stand-out in the women’s division.” Both have finished in the Top 5 in the world at different points in their careers. Both are also familiar with the Oregon Coast, having also raced in the pounding surf at Pacific City. Continue reading

Help Count Devils Lake Birds

2013 Great Backyard Bird Count
Participate February 15th to 18th

Did you ever wonder what birds are on or near Devils Lake?  Perhaps you have seen Bill Henderson’s bird photographs on our Facebook page?  Did you know an annual count of bird species has been done on the lake since 2006?  The 2012 count for the Otis location identified 36 species and 1,064 during the Great Backyard Bird Count.

The Great Backyard Bird Count (GBBC) is an annual four-day event that engages bird watchers of all ages in counting birds to create a real-time snapshot of winter bird populations. Participants are asked to count birds for as little as 15 minutes (or as long as they wish) on one or more days of the event and report their sightings online at Anyone can take part in the Great Backyard Bird Count, from beginning bird watchers, to experts, and you can now participate from anywhere in the world! It is very easy to participate just follow these simple instructions.  Let’s expand the data available on Devils Lake birds and have fun doing it!  To get started you can download this 2012 GBBC Checklist for Otis which you can use to participate in the count and enter your result later in the weekend.

The 16th annual GBBC will be held Friday, February 15, through Monday, February 18, 2013. Please visit the official website at for more information and be sure to check out the latest educational and promotional resources.

It’s free, fun, and easy. Each checklist submitted during the GBBC helps researchers at the Cornell Lab of Ornithology and the National Audubon Society learn more about how birds are doing, and how to protect them and the environment we share. Last year, participants turned in more than 104,000 online checklists, creating the continent’s largest instantaneous snapshot of bird populations ever recorded.
