2017 will mark 50 years for the Ski Broncs water ski show team. In celebration, the Ski Broncs have released a cool retrospective video.

In 1967, the ski team first came into existence and has been entertaining Stateline audiences for 50 years. The retrospective video was put together by Chelsea Capriola and was first shown at the Broncs Bash 2017 fundraiser earlier this month. The video presents a little history of the water ski team and answers the question of why they do what they do.

Capriola's family has been involved several years.

The video introduces you to the families involved with the Ski Broncs and their mission.
