    2016 DePue Reunion

    John Schubert and myself , Dale Hoffert , would like to announce that planning has begun to hold the next Boat Racer Reunion on the evening of Friday July 29th 2016 in DePue. We have decided , after talking to a few of the guys , that in would be in the best interest of everybody if we broke from the usual 5 year interval and have it a 1 year earlier. As in the past there will be a dinner , silent auction items and good old story telling I am sure. We are also working on a couple special auction items that will be announced when they are completed. So set aside the date and we hope to see you there !!!!

    When John asked me if I would help put on the next event after the reunion in 2012 was over I quickly agreed with the stipulation that John stay on board as I felt it still needed a name attached to it that boat racers were familiar with. After all I never raced a boat , although I had the money in hand once and let the left brain - right brain thing discourage me , and most didnt know me til I did the trivia contest in 2012. The first two reunions were great successes and I hope this years event lived up to those. I hope it did and I thank John for his advice and support.

    Alan , I thank you for your kind words and encouragement !!


    We want to thank all who attended and hope you had a good time. I am always open to comments and criticism in order to make future gatherings better than the one before so feel free to let me hear your thoughts.

    I need to thank Mike Krier and Mike Schmidt who built and donated the two boats for the raffle and to Bill Seebold , Bruce Summers , Ralph DeSilva , Bernie Van Osdale and Steve Wilson who donated the silent auction items. Nobody profits from the reunions and all profits realized are donated to the "Save Lake DePue Fund " and it appears that they will be getting a donation again this year. Thanks to all who participated and congrats to the winners.

    To Karen Cadle , George Taylor , the Juby's , Mark Suter , Bruce Summers and Dick and Mike Austin who brought their vintage equipment and\or inside displays for all of us to enjoy. It was good to wake up the echos on Lake DePue as Goerge and Dick ran their equipment on Friday. I have pictures to post as soon as I get through going over them.

    Special thanks to Ray Rodda for being our speaker for the night. Great job as always Ray !!!!!!

    If I have forgotten anybody I do apologize.

    Finally I saw Bill Seebold and Paul Bogosian before they left on Saturday afternoon and had a quick conversation. Bill told me that 4 years is even to long to wait for the next gathering and every three years might be a better time table. They said as long as they are able they will come back for every one. So I am here to announce that you need to mark the calendar for Friday July 26th 2019 for the next DePue Boat Racer Reunion party. I hope to make it bigger and better than ever.

    Thank you to those that attended and to those of you that registered but were unable to make the trip your care package will be in the mail soon.

    Dale

    Just a reminder to all reunion attendees , if you plan to go into the pit area you MUST purchase a wristband and sign the insurance waiver. The wristband also covers your admission to the races on Friday , Saturday and Sunday. THERE ARE NO EXCEPTIONS TO THIS RULE !!!!!

    To everyone who has pre-registered, it appears that we have an issue with the Hotel of choice with special rates. Only 12 rooms have been reserved but over 80 have pre-registered. Would you that are planning on attending please e-mail me where you made your hotel registration. My concern is that you might have reserved a room at the LaQuinta but did not spicify the Reunion. So please e-mail if you have a reservation at the LaQuinta, and if you don't can you change your reservation. e-mail jschubert19j@gmail.com

    OK, for those of you that are planning on running some equipment, here are the rules & guidelines.
    1) USTS has negotiated with their insurance carrier to have your test runs covered under a Special Events class.
    2) You will be required to join USTS as a regular race member to be covered under the insurance umbrella. The membership fee is $75.00.
    3) You will be required to register to run in the special event at a nominal fee of $25.00, less than the normal race entry fee to cover any incidental rescue crew & ambulance fees. You will also be required to sign "Release from Liability" forms. Registration is handled by Susan Sailor & Denise Eldridge. They are normally located behing the Depue Men's Club food pavilion.
    You will receive an arm band but all others in your crew as well as all other reunion members will be required to pay $10.00 for an arm band allowing entry in to the hot pits.
    4) All boats that intend to run on the water must be inspected by the USTS Safety Inspector, Mike Weinant. He will mark your boat is some way to indicate he feels your equipment is safe to run out on the course. All boats MUST have a tether type kill switch. The issue of helmets & life jackets has been discussed. I don't feel that current equipment is required but what you have must be deemed OK for test runs by myself & the Safety Inspector. You will be required by the insurance carrier to have cut suits. If you don't, Todd Brinkman, USTS President & Race Director says he thinks we will be able to have active drivers loan you their cut suits.
    5) Running on the water will occur after Friday's event. There might me a small intermission to allow rescue & safety boat personnel to have a break. You may also be requested to have individuals that might be with you to man the small aluminum outboard boats for pick up purposes. Friday will be the only day allowed for running on the course. Saturday's schedule is usually very hectic & run late.
    6) At this time I'm not totally sure about the dinner time at the reunion. We will definitely not start until 7PM but will try for 7:30. Can't guarantee this.
    7) In the event that you have some reason that after registration you can not run, neither the membership fee nor the registration will be refunded.
    8) REMEMBER no alcohol beverages prior to operating your equipment.

    If anyone has any questions contact me by e-mail jschubert19j@gmail.com
