    Posting results are important and I want to do it properly. Pictures worth a thousand words. Downloading some bad photography (my fault) well (check your zipper) and opening my car and trailer to unpack I have a days work ahead. If anyone has a P limited mono awards photo please post or send as that one I don't have.

    I will get all the pics and results soon,

    Yes killer site with a monster alligator who showed up during the raffle drawings. This gator was estimated to be at least 12ft long...it was a monster. I have some small ones in my pond in my backyard and I’m not afraid to go in as I like the feel of being in the cool water, it if this one was in it I wouldn’t even think about getting in or just being at the edge. But, the races were awesome. I’m trying to find the video of Luis’s, of OSE, boat submarine a couple of times. Once right in front of the stands and it was under for a good 5-8 seconds before it popped up. . . some good races to watch

    These are the heat sheets at the end of the day. The 4th round was scored only for the top 6 boats after round 3.

    Default More Racing Conversation

    Once again my son Fede and I would like to thank Mic, Jeff, and Linda for such
    a great job hosting and putting on this event. The racing, pace, and camaraderie
    were terrific. We met a bunch of new racers and many old friends. Support from a
    widespread list of sponsors was terrific to hear as well. Many interesting conversations
    for continued Fast Electric growth and future racing here in the District and in Florida
    were exciting to talk about. Hopefully this is an annual staple event for many future years.
    In total Fede and I ran a total of 31 heats....we were sure exhausted by the end of that
    Sunday, my apologies if I had some moments where there just was no time to chat with
    people.....I know there was an hour or 2 that some equipment problems and the racing
    frenzy itself made it almost impossible for me to do anything else but wrench and race.

    Before I forget......One of the highlights of my weekend was to Congratulate Geoff Bishop
    for winning the P-Ltd Mono class. Geoff is one of our Wave Blasters club members. I had
    to persuade Geoff to attend knowing I needed his experienced Pit-man help. The amazing
    part is that Geoff entered his "revolt" and old club race boat that we all thought was obsolete.
    With his steady consistent driving he carved up the field and ended up on top.
    Very, Very impressive feat......Congrats Geoff !!

    Attached are some pictures of Geoff after he humbled me

    Wow....found out something new today.
    Ray posted a video link that appears unsuported here,
    so I copied and pasted the link from the main What's New ? page.

    -Type: https://
    -Then: vimeo.com
    -Then: /297370349

    When it open up I saw Jeff Maturo's
    "RC BOATING TODAY" site on Vimeo

    Very cool and very well done on every video
    that I had time to view this morning.
    Guys, sites like these are what can really fuel
    our hobby!
    Great work Jeff and Thx for all the diligent work

    Everyone should really take a look for yourself
