  • 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 !!!!

          I have received word through an email this morning from Nancy Rahnert that she and her father, Clyde Queen, are planning on attending the reunion in July. Clyde recently had some surgery on his leg and was waiting to see how he felt. Nancy told me he wants to be there and is looking forward to it , as are a lot of people looking forward to seeing Clyde and Nancy.

              For those of you that are going to be bringing something to display please let John know as he is in charge of that. The DePue Men's club will not be doing a carnival this year so we will have the entire street in front of the VFW again to use for that purpose.

                  Re: 2016 DePue Reunion

                  How about this for a silent auction item. A DVD of the CBS broadcast of the 1961 NOA Championships from Minnesota. If you were there it might be a nice item to have !!!!!!

                    Re: 2016 DePue Reunion

                    When John and I first announced that we were going to do a reunion this year there was made mention of a couple special items. Well the first one has been completed and here it is. It is scale model Krier runabout made by Mike Krier. The boat is app. 40 inches long and built to scale. It is on swivel base that can rotate 360 degrees. The only varaible left is whether we have it painted or leave it in its natural wood state. Stayed tuned. The plan is to have the drivers in attendance sign the boat and then at the end of the night it will be auctioned off or possible a raffle. I can tell you the second item is a Syd hydro replica and is the works.

                        So you are still on the fence about coming to the reunion ? Maybe a conversation on things like this may break out. The top 2 pictures come from the Thirlby boat shop and the bottom three from The Mark Suter Collection. If you are ever traveling through Michigan they are both a good place to stop and visit. You wont be disappointed !!!

                          Re: 2016 DePue Reunion

                          As the 2016 DePue Reunion nears I just wanted to update everybody on dates that are coming up and an option available to all.

                          1) If you are going to use the reunion hotel you need to make your reservation by July 1st to get our special rate. The LaQuinta in Peru , just south of I-80 , is the hotel will be using again. I called today and they still rooms available in the reserved block. Call the hotel at 815-224-9000 to get the special rate of $79.99 , normal July rate is $124. When making the reservation you need to mention "Boat Racer Reunion " to get the discounted rate. The block runs from Wed July 27th - Sat July 30. All rooms are doubles.

                          2) We need to receive your registration by July 8th so the caterer can be notified and shirt orders can be placed. I will attach the registration form on the bottom of this message in case you need it.

                          3) I have been asked by a few people if they can get a t-shirt instead of a polo shirt. I contacted the store and we can get a t-shirt in the same aquatic blue color as the polo shirt , so if you prefer a t-shirt and have already sent in your registration just send me an email at dhoffert@mchsi.com and I will note it on your registration. If you still need to mail your registration you can note t-shirt on the form. I apologize I have not posted the new design as of yet , we are fine tuning the back of the shirt and should have it soon. Below is the front design , the color of the shirt example is not the exact shirt color.

                          John and I are looking forward to seeing you all in DePue in July.

                              I received a message last night asking if the reunion is still on as it had been cancelled because of low registration. My feeling is if even 30 people want to show up to talk and reminiscence about the past it is a worthwhile venture! The reunion will not be cancelled. I look forward to seeing you all in DePue !!!
