    The "Tommy" Ambassador Award was created in 2001 to recognize those individuals whose contributions showcase Wisconsin water skiing. It is only fitting that such an award be named after Tommy Bartlett, who used his show business talent to create water ski show performances that would be showcased all over the world. Bartlett became an icon for his tireless work and dedication to his ski, sky and stage show performances for millions of visitors to Wisconsin Dells since 1953.

    Tom Diehl, longtime general manager and the man who would take over the Tommy Bartlett organization upon his passing, became the very first recipient of the "Tommy" Ambassador Award, presented at the 25th annual Think Tank Water Ski Convention & Expo.
