    we're in Section 2 this year, that will be interesting and much more fun I'm thinking. Nice to have some boats to race against unlike the 70's that are gone in an hour. Now what's the weather going to do-

    Smoke on the Water... Safety Meeting

    we moved from "safety meetings" to "issues" Once the boat hit the dock you be standing around a bunch of people and be like- " let's go talk about our issues" "We've got some major issues to discuss" , etc.... at least that's what I've heard :)~
