MONDAY, July 07, 2014 - Preparations have turned toward the first of four Ohio River races, namely the Marietta Riverfront Roar. As usual, our real preparations will likely not happen until the last minute, but there is a engine to change, trim cable to fix, decals to apply and the like. Procrastination and a mother of a workload at the office usually results in one thing I can count on more and more regularly. You guessed it, poor performance it is!
Anyway, we'll do what we can to get the boat together before heading 100 miles up the Ohio River to the city of Marietta on Friday morning for the beloved Marietta Riverfront Roar. We'll be carrying the Capital City Chrome and Customs colors this weekend, if chrome is considered a color.
Our SST-120 boat will be on display in downtown Marietta from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. Friday. Racing is slated for all day Saturday and Sunday. Come join us if you are in the area and have yourself a guarateed good time.
Speaking of good times, our first trip to the Bay City River Roar a couple weeks ago wasn't much to speak of in the performance department, but I couldn't have asked for a nicer event. The hospitality shown by the local committee, the professionalism shown by the race promotors, and the sponsorship relationships provided by the local sponsors was more than I could have asked for. It was a change of pace for me to show up and have two local sponsors waiting to get on our boat. I appreciate very much The Thumb Print and Culinary Products Inc. for their support. I hope if they choose to support our team in the future we can provide them with quite a bit more results on the water.
I look forward to a return trip Central Michigan next summer!
