If your looking for something to do on Saturday July 21st, 97 Rock says stop looking and start planning. The 3rd Annual Wake the Desert wake board contest is gonna be held in Kennewick down by Bateman's Island. Put on by the Tri City Riders group this event attracts riders from all over the northwest and this year thanks to their main sponsor Desert Valley Powersports there is a $1000 prize for the Open Class.

Prizes for all the other divisions will be awarded to the top 3 competitors. There is a beginners devision, women's division, intermediate, advanced and finally the open class.

Registration is that day starting at 8:30a so get there early and make sure you're ready to ride. Competition will start around 10am. Plenty of viewing areas for everyone but I would get there early to make sure you plot out the perfect spot catch all the high flying action.

Wake the Desert hosted by the Tri City Riders and is supported by many local businesses such as Desert Valley Powersports, Gamache Landscaping, Sundown Sport and Marine, Sporthaus Northwest, Traffic Jams and NW Riders.

They also have some great help from national sponsors Oakley, Rockstar Energy Drink, and Go-Pro who have donated prizes for all the classes.
