    My thanks to Tracy for taking these photos. There's more, but 590 pictures are TOO many for me to upload.

    For those out there that have never been to a Michigan Cup, I hope that these may have inspired you to give a trip to Michigan a strong consideration.

    And a Great time was had by all !!!!!

    I have 500 plus that I've been sifting through. There's no rhyme or reason to what catches my eye so just deal with it. I rtied to rename the files what I thought they were when I looked at them.

    View from the sky. There's a few tents missed still in this shot

    Big house on the lake. We only hear from him when he needs to yell at ME!

    This gets more traffic after racing I think. Weather sucked so spectators were down.

    Peeps driving. Looks like left to right Tom Castellani, Ava Paganelli, Mike Paganelli, Bob Zola, Don The Moose"Hineman, and Chris Harris. There's another behind Bob I can't make out. Chris was our CD for the entire race. Did a killer job too.

    A few of John Einsteins boats..s
    Some Doby boats.jpg

    This is the view we woke up too each morning. Usually there is a mist to go with it.

    Our launch dock. Works pretty well. Although we can't guys to go in on one dock and out on the other.

    Fred's son
    Landon.jpg

    My son. Hangs with me a lot so expect him to be a tool in no time.
    My kid.jpg

    We've raced all over with Ray. We always saw the same thing. Him trying to see around legs and railing. So we built him a spot just for him.

    Fred Siewert. The hardest working man at any of our races.

    We rarely get to race each other. Tom loaned me his P sport and Ty ran mine. I beat him this heat.

    Here you can see me leading but Ty has the lane only a tic behind
    Punk kid beating me.jpg

    But not this time! That's me on the inside.
    Not this time.jpg

    Here it appears I'm thieving something from Toms pit. Entirely possible. I did find 2 speedo and a 1527 that belonged to him in my boxes at the end of the season.

    Smock gave my son Tyler crap all weekend. As it should be
    Give em crap Doug.jpg

    Ken Haines winning yet another award. Truth told I'm not sure which one in this pic. He did really well this year.
    Haines and FAS.jpg

    Doug and Ken launching boats for the kids class. Fede and Landon both raced pretty well for as little experience as they have. We had a number of racers under 15. They were all class acts and I personally found it really encouraging that there is a next generation of racers. These kids are the future.
    Smock n Haines.jpg

    Fred and Marc C. Also known as "The Hobbiemaster". Zola once told me he'd had his first name changed to "The". If you spend much time around RC and Marc you'll pick up that the moniker fits him perfectly.
    The Hobbiemaster.jpg

    Uncle Ben looking like a deer in traffic. New to MMEU this season. Should give him the most improved driver award. Started rough for him in 2015.

    The Cup. I trust this will be delivered back to Mi in 2016.

    Losing the cup did not set well with at least one of our younger drivers. I may have to build some more boats.
