Jeff Blair, president of Skyview Lake Waterski Club, said the club is honored to host the event.
“My sons, Will and Wesley, and I have all represented the U.S. in previous Pan American Championships in South America and Mexico, so we know first-hand what an exciting experience this will be for all the skiers who have been chosen to represent their countries,” he said. “We appreciate the support from the local community helping us make this prestigious event possible.”
Cindy Charlton Sutton, executive director of the Statesville Convention & Visitors Bureau, said the SCVB is excited to support the championship event.

It’s a testament to the vibrant and welcoming spirit of Statesville, and we’re thrilled to be a part of this exhilarating journey.'”
