Mother Nature has thrown a wrench into the racing schedule for the summer of 2010. The lake is still 20 feet above summer pool. This has the ramp turn around and the dock anchors under water. We cannot reattach the dock until the lake level is below the anchors and the ground around them dries out. We would also be wise to not get to much weight on the asphalt part of the drive, until the ground under it has had a chance to dry out. Therefore, we are going to postpone the first two races of the season and begin the season with the Yankee Doodle on Sunday July 4. We will again this year have a catered meal of bar-b-qued pork and the fixings. Registration for the Yankee Doodle is $25, which includes a dinner for the captain. Additional meals are $8 per person. Come out and join the fun.
The revised race schedule will be as follows:
Yankee Doodle – July 4
Huddleston Cup – July 24 & 25
The Karl Millen – August 7
The Jolly Roger (Long Distance Race) – August 28
The Dixie Cup – September 5
The Great Minnow – October 2
The Great Minnow is a one day race this year. So if fear of committing to two days has held you back in the past come on out this year and join in the fun.
