      Hi Dave,
      The 20SSH driver accumulating the most total heat points over the weekend will receive a beautiful Bulova watch (courtesy of VanValkenburg & Sons Jewelers) in honor of late APBA racer Kevin Ladd. Past winners include: Tim Sidor, Billy Hemp, Dana Holt, Joe Pater, & Donny Allen.

      Update: There will be no camping fee this year.

      Still plenty of openings for Racer School - you can register online at: http://www.michiganhydroplane.com/Re...er-School.html

        Check out the awesome poster - should be seen in storefronts after the weekend!

        I believe DSR will have at least 4. Will try to spread the word for DSH at Huntington this weekend.

            Weather Report as of 8 PM this evening from the American Legion:
            "Water level is high, but not flooding into the pits/over the ledge/grass. Floating debris is minimal per a crew that was on the water this afternoon at the time that the river was cresting. Water levels are now falling, slowly, but expect to be back to semi-normal levels by Saturday morning".

            In other news...

            Racer School is full for Friday. Volunteers always still appreciated, whether it be for an hour, or all day.

            The Sobel's beautiful Joe Whetstone Memorial Award will be selected for the junior class (JH, JR, AXH, AXR) which has the highest amount of entries. The driver who accumulates the most heat points in that class over the weekend will be the winner of the trophy & title for 2015.

            Chicken Dinner still planned for Saturday evening at the Legion. Live band to be upstairs after dinner.

            Radio and TV advertisements out today - should be another great Father's Day weekend in Constantine!

              Will there be APBA stickers available for non compliant racers ?


              • #9
                I thought I heard someone say once that 'there are some pieces of plywood not even worthy of an APBA sticker"...

                Nevertheless, we will have some stickers on hand for you slackers out there...
