    I know he's kind of partial to the smell of meat skins and beer.

    I find it not necessary to trash talk since Canadians don't count anyway.

    Hey Guys due to a bunch of stuff, I will not be able to make the Cup race this year. Don't know if I will be racing at all anymore but that's another topic altogether. Terry or Tom please call me ASAP about the race, I have ordered and paid for a 20x20 tent to be delivered and set up at the elks lodge from wed thru monday of the race week. Let me know if you guys want it and I'll just leave the rental, it will be my little gift to the race. PEACE

    Some years are just like this. Planetary alignment gets in the way.

    We're talking through some options/ideas. Stay tuned fellas.

    Hoping more people sign up for this ASAP...right now only 16 each day if you subtract the Pag clan

    Sorry. No funds and no good health. Wendy has health issues too. Possibly make it out to the Can-Am though.

    It's been a very rough winter and spring so far.

    We've decided to delete some classes form the list. Scales will still run but we're going to ditch some of the big stuff over Q. Basically anything over Q wont be on the list. Three days 4 rounds. Nice sane pace we think. Off the water at a decent time. Plenty of time to enjoy each others company so to speak.

    We'll be shuffling the schedule a bit with the drops. We'll update that shortly. New flier and such.

    Also rattling some more cages to see if we can get more people signed up. Might end up a small event. It happens some years as I mentioned. People can't always make it. I can promise all that do make it that a good time will be had.

    I always say this.......RC boaters are a special kind of good people. 99% of them at least. Yeah, we're race'n and all that rot. Competition. Rah rah rah. Gogogo. Sure, I love that part. Of course racing matters to some of us but there's so much more to this hobby than just the laps. These events, gas/nitro/FE/rubberband/steam/pickone are a chance to hang out with like minded RC boating lunatics, have some laughs, and actually play with our toy boats. If there's a better way to waste my time than this I've not experienced it.

    If you're on the fence about attending or even racing in general................don't be. If not the Cup then find some other event to go to. You wont be sorry. Model boaters are the salt of the earth.

    We'll get you in Pete. PAGS isn't coming so there will be an opening. Worse case scenario you can have my spot. I'm going to be pretty busy calling heats and such.

    Maybe you guys should crunch it to 2 days instead of 3. Saves a hotel day.

    I'm really bummed guys, this is something that I look forward to every year, it is really my favorite 5 days of the year and I am sad that I am not attending. I will be back next year and you can bet on that. I will bring at least 4-5 other racers from my district and I PROMISE that and I will make sure that Steven Vaccaro makes it out too. I'm sorry guys, I will miss you all so much, please have a drink for me on the porch one night.

    Mike, we may do something different next year. Not less or anything. Just a tic different. Don't worry about not making it too. Sometimes life throws you a slider in the dirt. We get it.

    Howard, we talked about crushing it into two days but decided to stick with 3 so that we could run some boats that weren't necessarily our club classes. P mono, P offshore, maybe some Q boats, 1/8 scale. We can also likely pull off 4 rounds instead of 3. Guys will actually get in more racing with the extra round than we had originally planned.

    Okay, updated flier attached. Not a lot is changing. Just losing the T classes and changing Q offshore to Q mono.

    Oh also, I screwed up the per night fee for camping on site. If you hook up to power and water it's $20 per night. That might sound like a lot but the nearest campground is $34 per night and isn't 14 steps from your pit area. You do the math.

    The lodge will be selling us food this time for lunches. They have every kind of fluid you could need so you don't really need to cart a cooler. They also have a fish fry on Friday night after racing and bar type food available Saturday night. Basically you need your boats, your typical gear, and that's about it.

    Power is not available unless you are camping and paying the fee. So genies. We do as always have a number of genies running to plug into. We usually have enough to get it done. Bring a cord.

    T-Cat on Saturday June 24 (Michigan Cup Day 2) WILL run, if all that have already signed up, show up.

    I gave Terry some wrong info. Sorry

    One of the downers for me even if I could make it is that Wendy doesn't have a truck anymore so I'd just bring less boat like speccy classes.

    I pulled the trigger too soon!! Both Q-offshore and T-Hydro have enough entrants already to make the class so only dropping the T class on Friday and not adding Q mono on Sunday

    Race Events.com still shows "Q" Mono on Sunday instead of "Q" Offshore.

    Just an FYI, we are planning to do 4 rounds in each class! . Currently we will be running 44 heats on Friday and Sunday and 48 heats on Saturday. This will be adjusted as we get later signups.

    As a side note we have 12, count them 12, Q sports currently entered!!
