I am looking forward to this year. We have added a new member to our R&R team, Bruce Lewis. He has 5 boats all new. An Insane LSH,
P-cat. P-Mono, Buaas C/F Modern and a West Coast C/F Miss Burien. Welcome Bruce to the Club and our Team. I guess Dick, Bruce and I will have to be re-named. " The Three Old Guys". Gee I hope we will be able to remember that???!!!

Number 10. I would think this would mean an extra day for a some special celebrating. :)

Tony
I should have my head examined. Thinking of maybe having you build me one of those Jersey Skiffs and bringing it to the race. Is this an option? How much notice do you need?

I am baaaack! I missed last years season due to a home remodel that cost me my boat room. (Darn wife didn't want me dropping solder and epoxy on the new hardwood floors) Anyway, I have rebuilt my boats and plan on being there on the 29th.

D. Newland
09-20-2013, 02:08 PM
Doug, a Jersey Skiff? Can I pay Tony not to build you one? J/K. I wish we could do an extra day, but the city only allows us out there Fri/Sat/Sun. I'll put my thinking cap on and see what other fun stuff we can pack into that weekend.

Kerry-Wondered where you've been. Glad you're making it. I also see you signed up for the District race in Tempe, too!

September 29th event

We had a nice turnout for our first race of the season. Welcome Bruce Lewis, who is partnering up with Dick Roberts and Gary Rose. And welcome Back Kerry, who missed all of last season. Pete Wijatyk is also back, missing most of last season (except WW 9). He hasn't missed a beat, either.

P-Ltd Cat has been added to our club roster, and just like that we had a full flight of them. Great racing, but it's too bad Ted had to leave before the 3rd round as he had 2 perfect heats with his Motley Crew.

David N: 925 pts
Pete W: 825 pts
Ted M: 800 pts
Gary R: 363 pts
Kerry W: 225 pts
Allen G: 125 pts


P-Ltd Mono. it was the Pete Wijatyk show!

Pete W: 1200 pts
Allen G: 525 pts
Jim O: 325 pts
Kerry W: 325 pts


LSH

Another 6 boats. Jim has his Insane flying (check out the '13 Nat's videos. His is the fast one), but DNF's got him today. Bruce better stop listening to Dick and Gary.

David N: 1200 pts
Gary R: 525 pts
Jim O: 350 pts
Ted M: 300 pts
Bruce: 75 pts
Kerry: 50 pts


P Mono

David N: 1200 pts
Pete W: 900 pts
Kerry W: 419 pts
Gary R: 275 pts


Next race is October 20th. We'll be sticking to these 4 classes, but will run any other class gets 3 entrants.

The kick off race of the season was a blast. My thanks to David for putting it together and all who attended to make an outstanding day of flat out fun! I am planning on attending all the club races this year and of course WW10. My LSH which took a bad beating over 2.5 years ago at WW is on the bench being repaired and will be ready for the next club race! I plan to run OPC and should be able to get Dave Z. to commit, so one more and we can run OPC - c'mon guys bring out those boats!

Well, we had a record in attendance for our Oct 20th date, and Pat, Glen and Leonard didn't even run! Beautiful day and we actually had to split heats for P-Ltd Cat and P-Ltd Mono. That's a first for us.

1/10th Scale.

Kind of mostly Vintage, with Ted throwing in his Modern for a few heats. Dick finally got his Vintage thumping by the third round. Very impressive boat.

Gary Rose: 725 pts and gets the tie because I razzed him too much yesterday.

Ted McKay: 725 pts

Dick Roberts: 425 pts



P-Ltd Mono

8 boats showed up today. Nobody had anything for Osborne, but Kim had a very consistent day and got a solid 3 finishes. After 9 years of hearing Lenny Blake CD our races and comment how loose FE racers set up their boats. You should have seen his Titan 29! Touche' to him, or something like that.

Jim Osborne: 1200 pts
Kim McKay: 825 pts
Pete W: 725 pts
Lenny B: 725 pts
Dave Z: 625 pts
Kerry W: 525 pts
Alan G: 300 pts
Bruce L: 25 pts


LSH

Just 4 today. Kerry's Insane 30 has incredible potential. Just needs some steady laps, right Kerry?

David N: 1200 pts
Kerry W: 325 pts
Gary R: 300 pts
Bruce L: 0


P-Ltd Cat

We had 10 cats today. Fantastic! Man, Osborne's been working hard on his Geico and it shows. Pete's is blistering fast, but still quite loose. And, Lenny was the hired driver of Gary's Mystic Cat. That boat ran very well, though the inside of it looks like a tar bomb blew up in it. I don't even know what that is, but you can get the visual. I bailed on the first heat due to a drill-hole in my hatch I forgot to tape up, but Osborne knows what I have for him.

Lenny B: 925 pts
Jim O: 825 pts
David N: 700 pts
Kerry W: 550 pts
Pete W: 450 pts
Kim M: 325 Pts
Ted M: 300 pts
Alan G: 225 pts
Bruce L: 50 pts
Dick R: 25 pts


Next race, November 17th!

10-21-2013, 06:07 PM
Yeah I don't think my Insane 30 could be set up any better with that Sholund custom prop. I just need to learn not to choke the next time I am ahead of you! (If there is a next time that actually happens)

11/17/13

Another beautiful day in Az for boating. Sunny and 78 degrees by mid-day, with a slight breeze. Perfect.

P-Ltd Mono

Pete W: 1100
Dave Z: 925
Ted M: 925
Lenny B: 869
Jim O: 525
Kerry W: 25
Bruce L: 25

Pete continues to have a strong P-Ltd Mono, and I was reminded when tech'ing his equipment that he's still using an Aquacraft controller. Been so for years now. He does have a capacitor the size of an old 35 mm film cartridge, but his Cyberstorm is strong!

LSH

David N: 825
Kerry W: 700
Pete W: 300

Pete's Phil Thomas hull has been re-built! It had serious damage from the '12 WW race, but it's running again! Kerry would have actually won today, but he had to leave before the 3rd round. His Insane sport hydro is the best running boat in his fleet.

1/10th Scale Modern

Dick R: 800
Ted M: 350
Gary R: 300
Bruce L: 25

We actually had enough 1/10th scales to run both Modern and Vintage classes.


P-Ltd Cat

Jim O: 800
David N: 800
Alan G: 650
Adrien G: 625
Gary R: 625
Pete W: 75
Ted M: 50

Another strong showing of Cats, and welcome Adrien Gambino from France! He's here on a temporary work assignment and will be racing with us this season. Ted brought an extra Cat to run, and he proved that he can get it around the course with the best of them...his boat just needed more prop. I think that was Ted's way of putting training wheels on the boat for him until he could prove himself! He'll work on building a Cat and also getting some of his equipment here from France. Jim had a perfect round going, but left before the third round. He's still dialing in his Geico Cat, but it's a very strong boat. And, last but not least, Alan is finally in the mix! The last 2 club races he had been plagued with ESC troubles and his boats would only go 1/2 throttle (if that) around the course. His Cat is running well now, and he's driving very well.

P Mono

David N: 1200
Lenny B: 625
Pete W: 225
Kerry W: 194

Thanks for Gary loaning his Titan 40 to Lenny today. Pete really wanted P Mono to "make" today and he's having mixed feelings about it now. When he put his boat in the water to start the 2nd round, he popped his Castle 240, complete with the lid blowing off the deck. Messy goo. Not sure what happened as I don't even think he hit the throttle. He's making lemonade, though, as it's better for this to happen now than @ the WW race in Feb.


1/10th Scale Vintage

Dick R: 425
Ted M: 400
Bruce L: 50
Gary R: 25


Next race is December 22nd! Some of you have already notified me that you're out of town. For the others, LMK if you have a scheduling conflict.

Another fun filled exciting day of racing!

After Dave Z and I brought the Pmono in after heat 1 we noticed a slight amout of smoke when we opened the hatch. It was slight, had no smell and appeared to be steam. We checked the motor, esc, batts and drive shaft tube for heat and everything was perfectly normal. Dick told us it was probably heat from the drive shaft, but as I run a teflon tube that didn't seem to make sense, as the tube felt cool. Finding no problems, heat 2 we put it in the water and as soon as I hit the throttle the lid blew! What a mess, the esc was the culprit and after cleaning up the boat I found no damage to anything else (other then the severed motor and batt wires!). It could have been soo much worse, and I consider myself very lucky to only have to replace esc. As David pointed out, I'm glad we ran pmono and it didn't happen during WW. I've ordered a Hobby King 180 esc per Ted's recommendation and will have the boat ready for the next club race! David, don't dissapoint me, lets make the pmono's happen again - I love that mayhem class!

My Phil Thomas has a simple problem and that was a small drive dog with the tiny .050 allen which stripped and the drive dog moved fwd causing the prop to free spin in heats 1&2. Pulled the drive dog off yesterday using a reverse drill bit to extract the Allen screw and new drive dog installed. The LSH is ready for next race.

I must get my Blackjack porpoising under control as it blew over in heats 2&3. Both Gary and Jim have pointed out I have some positive angle on the strut. Might have to remove and reposition the drive tube as I cant change the drive angle due to drive tube position.

Ok boys, great times! See you everyone on the 22nd. Unlike the previous season, back in the game and practicing. So looking forward to racing with everyone at WW!!

12/22/13

We had quite a full pond today, due to a storm that rolled through on Friday. Nice sunny day, but only got up to 62 degrees or so. I thought we would be light on attendance today, with Christmas being so close, but we had 8 guys show up to race, and fielded 5.5 classes.


P-Ltd Cat

We're still having some good racing in Cat and they continue to get better tuned each outing. Too bad Jim keeps having to leave early. This time he had to get home to patch up his sponson. Pete moved to a Mean Machine hull, but it took him 2 rounds to figure out his 6 inch rudder was a tad long.


David N: 1200 pts
Pete W: 825 pts
Jim O: 450 pts
Kerry W: 350 pts
Ted M: 50 pts


P-Ltd Mono

I haven't run mine all season, it was off on speed, but I guess I had enough to do the job. Pete did set me up nicely in Round 1, only to flip it in the last turn. However, he redeemed himself in Round 2 and took a 1st place.

David N: 1100 pts
Pete W: 725 pts
Jim O: 525 pts
Kerry W: 50 pts


P-Sport Hydro

We decided to run this as 1 of our new additions, Chip, actually had his Phil Thomas set up for P Sport, and Ted had a newly built P Sport out for testing. So, we threw them together for a few heats. Chip wins the consistency award! Ted's still finding his tune.

Chip: 800 pts
Ted M: 50 pts


LSH

Welcome another new-to-FE member, Beezer! He and his dad (and Chip) have been busy building a nice fleet of Phil Thomas Sport boats.

David N: 1100 pts
Pete W: 925 pts
Beezer: 419 pts
Kerry W: 50 pts
Ted M: 25 pts


OPC

We finally got a heat together of OPC this season, thanks to Pete W's prodding! Pat has a newly build PS 300 and initial morning testing was awesome, but his pack got a little poofy. So, Pat "I don't run puffy packs" McDonald called it a day. That left me and Pete to some quite fun deck to deck racing for all 3 heats.

David N: 1100 pts
Pete W: 1000 pts


P Mono

We called it after 2 rounds.

David N: 800 pts
Pete W: 469 pts
Ted M: 325 pts
Kerry W: 250 pts


Next race, Sunday January 26th! Please attend so we can get our final plans set for WW X, which is Feb 21st-23rd.

Another awesome day of racing! I must do additional tuning on my LSH, cat and pmono. I also have a little fine tuning on PLTD mono and try and squeeze a tad bit more speed out of it - look out David, you've put the pressure on and I have to squeeze every ounce of of that boat. What an amazing running OPC David had, he just built it and put on the water for the first time, a little dialing after heats and by heat 3 I had no speed advantage on him, could I have more speed to pull out of mine and still keep it in the water? Watch out ML Boatworks OPC guys, Newland has one heck of a running boat! One more race for tuning and WW10 here we come!! With great regret I will not be able to attend Friday as I start a new job, will see everyone Sat and Sun! Can't wait!!

What a beautiful day! Highs in the upper 70's with a very slight breeze. Fantastic weather. We had 13 club racers at this event, which is one of our bigger turn outs! And, we were still down a few regulars this day, too.

Welcome Ray Presnall and Chuck Murray to the club! Ray's been posting here and has a great running P-Ltd Cat. Chuck is getting back into model boating and picked up a turn-key T Cat that ran some good laps during open water.

P-Ltd Mono:

Pete and Jim are trying to show each other who's ready for WW X. In this class and others! Congratulations to Bruce Lewis, who was able to get 3 finishes in this class, which is an accomplishment that is easily and often overlooked.

Jim O: 1025 pts
Pete W: 1000 pts
Bruce L: 563 pts
Kerry W: 525 pts
Alan G: 125 pts


LSH:

First heat of the day, Jim was on Pete's hip the until the final turn. Jim got the inside lane, but Pete, for reasons unknown to himself, did his impersonation of the High Plains Drifter and cut off/flipped Jim! DQ... Ted's Whip is running well again after a rehab, but he had to leave early today. And, the heats that Bruce entered (2), he finished them!

Jim O: 769 pts
Bruce L: 569 pts
Pete W: 450 pts
Ted M: 300 pts
Kerry W: 250 pts
Gary R: 25 pts


P-Ltd Cat

Once again, the most popular class we have! Gary Rose had most of his boats running well today, and he even missed the 1st heat of Cat and was able to get 800 pts. Adrien Gambino represented France well today and had a newly built cat for today. But, the honors go to new member, Ray Presnall! He was able to lock down 825 pts for the day and win the class with his nicely revamp'd Miss Geico.

David N: 1100 pts
Pete W: 1000 pts
Gary R: 450 pts


P Mono

Viva la France! Adrien Gambino takes the P Mono win today with a boat that he brought all the way from his homeland over the holidays to race with us. Pete wanted to show us all day how well his boat does without a left turn fin.

March 23rd, 2014 was the last race of the season for us. What a difference a month makes regarding pond weeds. WW X was perfect, this past Sunday the pond was almost unusable. We had to set up a very short course on the north side of the pond. We had another very sunny day, with temps in the mid 80's by the end of the day. 11 of us showed up.

LSH

A bit thin in the attendance, but it was nice to have Kevin Sweat out with us now and Jim showed him around the course, but neglected to show him where the weed patch was located. His boat got stuck in the first heat. Neither did the CD. Jim's Insane 30 is running solid.

Jim O: 800 pts
Kevin: 300 pts


P-Ltd Cat

Strong attendance! 8 of the 11 racers had cats to race. Gary got himself off to a very good start, winning his first 2 heats. Ray also has a strong running GEICO, and Bruce pulled some good points early on, too.

David N: 1000 pts
Ray P: 969 pts
Gary R: 825 pts


1/10th Scale Vintage

6 boats today and still growing. Gary wins with some consistent finishes.

Gary R: 1000 pts
Ted M: 825 pts

P Mono

Sure is!! Funny that you guys don't race in summer cause it's too :flammes-09: and we don't race in winter cause our water is solid!!

We have a race next Sunday if you are interested :lol:

I set up the '14/'15 race schedule towards the end of August.

Ray does travel quite a bit and has no issue only bringing 1 boat. He was in the Pac NW this weekend to race his new 1/10th Scale Modern, but they DQ'd him because his boat builder put in a bent driveline.

Fire him, I say.

Uuuggh! Don't even get me started!

I am certain that, if they could get one big enough to hold up, the real Unlimited boats would run a flexcable! :cool2:

Ray, get the 1/10 th scale modern or/and vintage hulls ready and come to the scale race in Sept at Legg Lake. You would think the electric chairman WON'T SAY WHO would LOOK at the rules before putting the wrong drive line in a boat.
