There will be a hot pits for this race, so if you are willing to bring a table for the day or weekend to use as a hot pit table, this would be greatly appreciated.

Updated race format, posted June 19:


1/10th and 1/7th Scale FE classes will completed be on Saturday. Our goal for Saturday is to get in at least 2 heats of 1/8th scale nitro/FE, Gas Scale and Thunderboats. The Thunderboat class will be a 4 heat, all-points race similar to how they race in the district.


The 1/8th scale nitro/FE and Gas scale will be a best 4 out 6 heats points scored towards the connie and final. If we run short of time on Sunday it may be best a 4 out of 5. The one thing we have going for us with the race moved from October to July is that we have a lot more daylight to burn.


There will be hot pits and an on-deck area. Gary Grembowski will be the pit boss and he’s going to keep things moving, so be ready to go when you are up.


Please help out with turn judging, buoy replacement and dead boat retrieval.


We will be using the 3 minute clock we normally do for an R/CU race.
