With our theme Rockin' in the U.S.A., we rocked Libertyville at the Lambs' Farm Tournament winning second place, missing first by 2 points out of 2100. We won first place at the Midwest Regional Show Ski Tournament, hosted by us at our site. We had the highest scoring ballet line, barefoot act, jump act and overall tournament act. We also won the best announcing, dock and equipment crew, pickup boat crew and tow boat. We climbed back to the top at the Nationals with a fourth place finish and received prime national television coverage on ESPN. The Backwater Gamblers became the Organization of the Year in the City of Rock Island. The show was called "Rockin' in the USA". The Show Director was Scott Allender.
