Well we had a good turn out for our first tune and fun day.Greg was out early pulling cat tails and getting wet. Mike and Don showed up and tried to pull out the wood floating in the launch area with no results. They will be trying again soon but with more power. The retrieve boat has sprung a leak and Mike says he is all over that repair. Over all the lake looks good and everyone is excited for the racing season to start.
Club members in attendance where Greg B, and his father Don
Don M, and his son Nathan
Mike B, his two sons Chris, and Timothy
Randy, started the day running his gas hydro but he was fighting shaft problems with the boat thou. Don M , tried his yellow submarine again with some new bow blocks to solve his diving problem with no results. Still the fastest sub out there! Rumor is Don is talking to the Navy about his boat for the submarine service. Greg ran next with his new Elam and the boat looks like a winner. If Greg can keep it orange side up thou. Randy ran his sport 40 with great results and will be tough this year. Doug ran his Formula boat next and put down the fastest speeds of the day! The red rocket looks good and will be a hot performer for the season. What a great start for this year and hope to see more people at the next event.
Well, The season is set for 09'. The club met at Ponderosa for dinner and hashed out the 09 sched. It seems that the new Thunder Boat class has really taken off with an expected 10+ boats. Hope to see all at the lake.
Note to everyone; I some how missed putting Timothy's name in my original post above. I am sorry to the Bird's for this over site. Don
Doug and Greg will be out on the 4 -16th with there new scale boats. Greg has the new U-16 and Doug will be running his new U-7 Formula hull in 08. Hope to see you all there Doug
