~ Dan Kanfoush made the trip down to Sunny Florida for the Lakeland race! There he was piloting the A-600!
   He reported that many local racers showed up to spectate! Who wouldn’t go to Florida!! Don Less, Clyde
   Mayer were present, and also Grand Island natives Gregg and Todd Roesch were present! Of course Matt
O’Connor was present with his 5 liter! Saturday he saw a 3rd in the final, and on Sunday the gremlins hit and he
 saw a DNS. Matt and crew have identified the problem and they are ready to take on the Centsless Team and
                                    Black Sheep Teams in Elizabeth City!!
 The Kanfoush/Sechler team has lost their Grand Prix boat. With the lovely economy we have right now, their
 sponsor they had for the GP boat just couldn’t do it this year. So we will be seeing the Y-1 Fast Eddie out in
   action again this year!! Hopefully we will see a GP boat from the Kanfoush/Sechler team in the future!

                                          Other News….

                                     RUMORS & GOSSIP
                       Is it true or isn’t it?!?!!? That is the question.
 ~ Now that the Timmermans have their little bundle of joy, could Chloe have a little friend or
boyfriend to run around with at the boat races? The only couple that pops to mind, that would
           be next for a little racer would be Eric and Gayle Butler…… Hmmmm…
                Guess we will have to start keeping any eye on Gayle’s belly!!!
 ~ So little Chloe Timmerman is here! Could Grandpa Barker have some J-stock hydro plans
                 hidden in his garage somewhere! A pink one would be nice!!!
~ Rumor has is that Ken Brodie II doesn’t even have his boat ready yet… Don’t worry Ken I am
                                sure you are not the only one!
