    I’ll try to be there too in order to help out. I’m sorry I didn’t race this summer with you guys. Was too busy with the Hoosier RC Racers club. Now, we have club officers and others who have stepped forward to help. Getting some of my free time back. :)

    A real windy day for the fast 50 and the Polar bear cup, it was a real test of nerve for the drivers, how fast you can make the turn and make it stick. How fast you can make a pit, if your wife can distract and heckle the other team.

    Sadly Owen and I were not the champs this year, but we did have a blast and it was an epic fight to the end. To have the 1st and second place on the same lap for 50 laps cat and mouse is something that I think is super cool.

    And without further ado the winners are Parker and David Hughey.

    Mike and David were 1st and 2nd at the Polar Bear, Sadly Parkers boat took a hit to the hull.

    As an interesting side note, the first polar Bear Cup was held in 1977. Mike still has the original trophy and magazine clipping from the event that he bought with him and sharing stories from back in the day.

    No, that was his older brother Jacob. They both are outstanding drivers (I wonder why). Parker just left us to attend Indiana University (Jacob graduated IU this Spring). Parker was called up to drive with his father in our 50 lap marathon race. He drove my boat and I'm glad he did because I wouldn't have had the nerve to push it as hard as he did in the windy conditions.

    Yeah, great genes there.

    Holy crap we're getting old. Jacob was like 8 then.
