Two events for youth will be held this weekend


? The Wakeboard Club will host a Learn to Ride Day on Saturday, April 6, in the back part of the the North Ski Area. Signups begin at 8 a.m. at the Ski Pavilion. All ages are invited to learn how to wakeboard or to improve their skills. The cost is $10. Gear is available at no charge if needed.

The club also will host a barbecue; new members who sign up for the Wakeboard Club that day will receive a free Wakeboard Club T-shirt. For more information, contact Lauren Lake Petrich at 965-7029, canyonlakewakeboardclub@yahoo.com or visit wakeboardclub.com.

? The Canyon Lake Bassmasters will hold their annual Junior Bassmasters Tournament on Sunday, April 7, open to all kids 11 to 18 years of age, whether or not they live in Canyon Lake. This a qualifying derby for the State Derby, to be held on the California Delta on May 26.

Two age groups, 11 to 14 and 15 to 18, will vie for three spots for the State Derby. The winners in those age groups will receive an all-expense paid trip for themselves and one parent to Shreveport, Louisiana to fish for the national title and scholarship money. The cost to compete in the Canyon Lake tournament is $25, which includes membership to FLW and The Bass Federation, which runs the national tournament. 

To register, call Sal Gervasi at 244-3294 at least one week in advance so the Bassmasters will have enough boats available.
