    Tyler texted me these last night...

    P-Hydro - Brian Buass (1st), David Newland, and Doug Twaits Jr.

    T-Hydro - Tyler Garrard (1st), Ken Haines, and Brian Buaas.

    I THINK that's the finishing order. I know I got the 1sts right. Correct me if I'm wrong on the 2nd and third.

    It is of note that Tyler and Brian are both running 6S power systems, unparalleled, in the T-Hydros...

    Nicely done, everyone!

    Those T hydros must be wicked fast. Congrats to all

    Our club tee-shirt are neon orange as are the GP tees.

    I'd like to say thank you to all who made the trip.

    The combination of the MMEU crew, the Elks, Waters, and Carly made this the best toy boat event I've ever experienced. A few hiccups but overall stellar.

    After I wake up from my comma I'll try to share some of the little stories that caught my eye.

    My favorite at the moment was relayed to me:

    Walking along the tents someone saw Landon put his arm around Tyler and say "hope you're not getting sick of hanging out with me. Been a long week."

    20ish pound 10S2P cat moving at speed eats markers....there wasn't much left of it after that impact........R.I.P.

    The cat didn't even have a mark on it.

    Some random thoughts:

    KUDOS to the MMEU club for putting on another great event...gets better every year. ..Thanks to Terry D, Bob Z, Tom C, Fred S and the rest of the herd for the work they did, and are probably still doing. The work involved must be mind numbing!

    KUDOS to the Elks lodge and members for basically leaving the Lodge open 24/7 for our use. Basically, their lodge was made to feel like our home.

    KUDOS to the MMEU herd again for providing a weeks FREE lunches for all the racers.

    Thanks to Pete "Chip" for the new turn fin for P-Sport Hydro, and refusing payment when offered.

    Doug Jr. for taking time to set up a rigger for my team mate!

    Bob Z's wife for the great chocolate cake!!!!

    Brian B....he's hilarious..looks like a pro wrestler and a heck of a nice guy.

    Mike B and Klaus (dad).....class acts all around.

    Jay S for manning the retrieval boat lots of times.

    The Biblical rain on Tuesday. Quick, grab two of everything and head for the Ark!

    Doug P's P-Spec Cat with a water-cooled motor....but no motor jacket!

    Mike P for his advice to the racers.."in oder to win, you have to be faster than the other guys"...or something like that.

    And lots more that I can't even think of right now....sorry if I left anyone out..so many good people just wanting to have fun.

    For anyone on the fence as to whether they should attend one of these events...don't hesitate...you will have access to some of the best minds (or demented minds..depends on your point of view I suppose) to help you out. Ego's don't seem to exist at these things....Bring your RTR or whatever you have and prepare to have fun.

    Colorado next year. Dates TBD.

    We'll probably do a cup race on a smaller scale than the FE nats. I would encourage everyone to hit either. FE racers are truly a special group. I consider each and every one of you friends.

    On the last day there was a crew by the name of Hello Aerial that came out a few hours before we finished up. Unfortunately I did not have a chance to talk with any one of them. I think they are just getting started up since their website says to put your e-mail address to be notified when they are up and running. Anyway they have some serious equipment (full on hexacopters and I think octocopters) and the pilots definitely know what they are doing. I managed to find their YouTube channel and watched some of their demo videos. All I can say is wow, and I think I speak for everyone when I say that I can't wait to see a demo of some of the footage they captured.

    I was less than thrilled with their behavior or their attitude but the equipment was incredible. We'll see what they came up with. They filmed some Q hydro and 1/8 that should be killer.
