    The course is scheduled to go in next week Doby. I'll let you know when to tell the guys to push the flush handles.
    Thanks bro!
    Mike, this is the first of a couple of ponds from what I understand. We'll know more this weekend.

    Several of the District boat racers also fly planes and have known the Hodges (three brothers) for years. Mac wanted a place for float planes and to hold RC boat races. One thing led to another and this is the result.

    It's going to be interesting to see how the site works out and how many flyers become boat racers.
    The pond will be 4' deep.
