                  Dean, it really helps to have the attitude your race has value. For the spectators and for the economic impact when you have people come to town. It is much easier done if you live and trade with those that can make the event a success. I've put this on 19 years, maybe time for someone to take my place.

                    That would be hard shoes to fill.

                      Eager beavers worked last night to set out the course. Of course Jack Stotts will have to give it his blessing. Our goal is to have the smoothest race course as possible. That's not easy when you have 12 CSH on the water. We are pleased that so many trailers are coming. Now, let's make it SAFE.

                          You should video tape the race and put it on YouTube so we all can watch it.... and the winner of the TV can watch it on their new Big Screen. If you do be sure to give us the link.

                          Way to go NBRA... you guys Rock.

                            This has always been a GREAT race week-end. Good competition in all ran classes. Doc does a fantastic job promoting . I made travel plans for the wrong week-end this year. Would have loved to run the flags one more time. Always next year.

                              We're set for a great day of racing, 5 mph winds from of direction that doesn't affect the water. Yesterday for testing we had two sets of MET fireman manning the lift rescue boats and two on the water at all times Seadoos. No driver or crew had to volunteer. This real professional racing. Drivers loveed the $15 entry fee. The facilities are fantastic with plenty of room with parking lot for 800 cars and trailers. The city placed workers around to control the traffic. Teams from 15 states are here. Sorry if you couldn't make it.
