Ken,

Have you considered using RcRacingEvents.com to do the registration for you? I don't know them, but they make it incredibly easy for everyone to sign-up and it is relatively inexpensive. A small increase in your already modest entry fee would more than cover the cost and relieve you of the hassle.

Just a thought,

Ray

37 Boats, 10 racers and growing !

Hey Guys here are the race latest updates.
First off I'm happy to announce that that George and Jennifer Santiago have volunteered to help run our upcoming race. For those that do not know them, they are the Father Daughter team from the Orlando Culvert Dodgers club that greatly contributed to such a good race at the Orlando Winter Nationals. George seemed to be everywhere running the pits and making sure everyone was ready prior to each heat. (The Pit Boss). Jennifer did an incredible job as one of the CD's at the event. In most of the FE crowd's opinion, she was the very best of the CD's that ran the event. This should make our race even better than last year.

We are also accepting class sponsors at $25 per class and we are still in need of an event sponsor at $100. Our club feels that just like the entry fees we will try to keep the sponsorships as reasonable as possible in these tuff financial times. Please contact me (Ken Haines) or Bud Johansen if anyone is interested in class or event sponsorships.

Sponsors to date:
Jim Slaughter at mini-cat racing is sponsoring - LSH class
Don Wollard at Rum-Runner Racing is sponsoring 2-classes to be announced
Thanks, Jim and Don

Racers please sign up as soon as possible so that we can continue planning with a better idea of how many racers that we will have.
Thanks, Ken :bounce:

On Saturday the really good food was courtesy of Phil Hale, Paul & Jeff Mainville, and Bob Meinhardt, great job we all enjoyed the picnic.
Additional thanks the the remainder of the Wave Blasters who also provided help where ever needed throughout the whole weekend;Terry Cowger Jr, Mark & Brandon Groothouse, Ron Desmond, Bill Tripp, Jeff Shipley, Bob Rahberg, and Bruce Childers. I apologize if I missed anyone.
