Walter Meloon, the grandson of Correct Craft’s founder Ralph Meloon and the former CEO of the company, has been inducted into the Wakeboarding Hall of Fame. Walter Meloon was CEO of Correct Craft during the rise of wakeboarding and as the company was leading development of the sport — the wakeboard tower is one example of the innovations the company developed during Meloon’s tenure as CEO. “Our team is thrilled to see Walt honored with induction into the Wakeboarding Hall of Fame, a well-deserved acknowledgement,” said Correct Craft CEO Bill Yeargin in a statement. “The success we enjoy at Correct Craft today is built on the shoulders of Walt, the entire Meloon family, and many other Correct Craft leaders over the past century.”
The Association of Marina Industries Conference & Expo — initially slated to take place Feb. 2-4 — has moved to a full virtual event to begin in late January, with sessions running through Feb. 17. Organizers have altered its typical conference schedule to accommodate those in different time zones and with conflicting schedules. The new virtual agenda can be found here. “We are excited to explore the possibilities that a virtual platform has to offer and hope that this will provide an opportunity for many who have been unable to experience the Conference & Expo in the past because of scheduling conflicts or time and money restraints an opportunity to do so,” said AMI Chair Chris Petty in a statement.
