We've come up with the 2007 race schedule for this summer's race series. Here's what we've got planned for this season.
May 26-27: Icebreaker Regatta (hopefully the ice is out!)
May 28: Memorial Day
July 7-8: Firecracker Regatta
Aug. 1: First Midweek Race
Aug. 8: Second Midweek Race
Aug. 15: Third Midweek Race
Aug. 18-19: Fireweed Regatta
Sept. 1-3: Governor's Cup Regatta (Labor Day weekend)
In addition to the usual races and regattas, I have instituted a midweek race series in August. These races will be held at 7:30 on the first three Wednesdays in August, ending with the Fireweed Regatta the third weekend of the month. The "Hot August Nights" series will be a points series much like the Dave Johnson cup. Points will be tallied up from all of the races including the Fireweed race results and trophies will be awarded accordingly at the end of the Fireweed Regatta.
Also, I am looking for volunteers to serve on the Race committee. If anyone is interested in helping out with the races, whether it be helping time a race or running the committee boat, please contact me and I will be glad to make you an honorary member of the prestigious Race Committee.
I hope everybody is as excited to hang out at the lake and get some racing in as I am!
Have a great spring,
