extinguishers assembled between December 2002 and February 2004 are
The company said that the oversized part may prevent the affected
fire extinguishers from discharging their contents at the proper
velocity, or at all, when the lever is activated.

USA Water Ski Welcomes Hydrofoiling As Newest Sport Discipline
POLK CITY, Fla. ó USA Water Ski has announced that the United
States Hydrofoil Association (USHA) has become the ninth sport
discipline of USA Water Ski.
The USA Water Ski board of directors approved USHA as a full
sport discipline at its annual 2005 mid-winter board meeting in Polk
City, Fla. "We're excited and honored to be a sport discipline of
such a great organization as USA Water Ski," said Brad Scott,
president of USHA. "We're looking forward to interacting with the
other eight sport disciplines to help grow water sports."
Before Hydrofoiling became an official sport discipline of USA
Water Ski, the USHA was an affiliate sport discipline of the
organization for two years. Since then, the USHA has grown from 112
members at the end of 2002 to 438 members by the end of 2004.
Hydrofoiling has steadily been on the rise since 1990, when the
first sit-down hydrofoil was sold. The sport's popularity grew more
rapidly in 1998 when advanced hydrofoils began production...

them, and especially when we spend time with them. They seem to

sense when we are not feeling well.
It is hard to imagine that they really donít know how to behave
in our world of circumstances... more
AZBWísAWA Rider Of The Month
Arizona Boating & Watersports looks forward to Christine
Cameronís interviews each issue with the AZBW AWA
Wakeboarder of the Month. Following is her question and answer
session with Trever Marquette.
"I plan on riding JR Menís Pro Tour this year. I like it
because it offers more publicity than the local competitions and has
a higher state of riding. I also ride the Canyon Lake
Wakeboard Club events out at Lake Ellsinore, Calif.; they are
similar to AWA events with a relaxed and fun atmosphere. I am
also planning on hitting the various slider contests this year."
