TUESDAY, MARCH 1, 2011 - Hopefully March will come in a like a lion today as the winter-loving portion of me has about had his fill of snow and cold for one season. I don't know about you, but I'm ready to get in the shop, get some boats prepped and get on the water as soon as possible. Hopefully we will continue to have some decent weather so we can get the boats readied in time to do some testing in May or June.
The guys worked in the shop a good bit yesterday getting some more paint work done on the F-3 boats and work continued on preparing the APR SuperLeague training capsule. We hope to get the body work done on it in the next week or two and then get it in primer. The target for completion date is the end of March so we don't have a lot of time to sit on our hands.
The voting for the naming of our mascot has concluded and the three finalist names are Polo, Thunder and Splash! The Herd Racing Foundation has the duty of choosing the final name and gender of the water buffalo mascot so we'll hopefully be introducing you to our new mascot as soon as it arrives from the manufacturer and is properly named.
Also, hoping to get that story up about the Herd Racing Foundation members soon. Still waiting on some bio information from the members so I expect to have this wrapped up in the next few days.
Meeting with the promoters for the Huntington powerboat race this evening to work on sponsorship plans for that event which is set for August 6 and 7. We are all hoping that Huntington's return to the APR SuperLeague circuit will be a great one in 2011!
