    I goofed on shirt contest . there were only a few, with bad weather on Friday, my train of thought was to get in as much racing as possible. thanks to the guys who wore their shirts, some do anyhow. we will try again next year. thanks to those who bought this years edition, there will be some new bright shirts at the ponds in the next months and years.

    ROAD INFORMATION. the only construction close to Celina that I know of is sr 29 WEST of Celina 6 miles for a bridge out . those who take I-69 to marion Indiana (sr 18 )then cut off east to sr 29 can do so. then take it as far as you can go, when they have it blocked so you can go no further, make a right on sr 49 south, go one mile , make a left on a county road and go 2 miles east, then left on any county road 1 mile back to sr 29. just watch the stop signs and be careful. van wert is all open , no closures off us 30 to 127 south to Celina. I-75 in Findlay , oh area coming from Toledo, area is construction , but should have no delays. impba cards. no food concession at site, drivers meeting at 8:00 Saturday first heat out immediately after meeting , get registered Friday if possible. controlled open water Friday after setup complete. volunteers welcome. will have a few shirts for sale, got a couple extrasl we will have 2 retrieve boats running, volunteers are also welcome. have a safe trip. , Dan

    here is the latest on concessions. after looking for months and talking with several potential vendors, our last hope opted out. we will have no on site concessions, so bring your grilles and food or there are many excellent food sources nearby , arby's, happy daz, bob evans, pizza hut, mcdonalds.and many more just minutes away. sorry for the inconvenience, Dan
