Jim,
Nobody forces anybody to do anything here.  I was just mentioning what Raoul had already done.

Dave ,

Are we going to force members to sign up with Facebook to view pictures? Personally, I am very opposed to that.

That's what the Photo and Video galley is for.

PS.. I don't  do Facebook, but I have an account, but I could not find the pictures Raoul sent.

I uploaded some pictures into the Member Photo Pages section.  Dave, feel free to move then into the Racing section.  Jim, I posted the Picts and video under my fb page, and not on the club section.  I send you a friends request so you can see them.

Raoul posted lots of pics and video to our Facebook page.  Glad you guys had a good turnout!!  Congrats to all the kids too.

I will also have to add that Raoul did a most excellent safety/ technical inspection. He was very thorough and added a lot of "can be made better next time", and added suggestions.

Just returned from the races. It was a great success.

Had four High Schools competing this year. Five were on the schedule, but Glastonbury was a no show.

Of course Tolland, (Jim Benin's school), had a dominate three crafts, but before the start of the races, only two where deemed to be worthy of racing.  Manchester HS had one entry. Rockville had one entry. And Coginchaug had one entry.

Total of five crafts raced. We had 5-five lap heats. I'll have to get Jim Benini to post the results, as I did not write them down.

I wish I had pictures, but I was the starter and flagger. Rauol was taking a lot of pictures and videos, so I can hope he can add them here.

The venue was a challenge, as we had 4-5" of rain on Saturday. The lake went up at least two-three feet from setting up a 8:00 to the race to the end at 3:00. This erased all the launching dock. We had a nice staging area on asphalt in the morning, and had to stage on the grass towards the end of the event.

Fun day for the kids!

More to follow.
