As the Weber Farm festival will be taking place on the coinciding Oct 21-22 weekend as our IMPBA Time Trials, we ask that those attending use the Weber Farm parking lot entrance to enter the lake site (outlined here in RED) at 6007 Kilby Rd, Harrison, OH. Entering on the Kilby Rd side will help the traffic flow past the lake site.
The site EXIT will be our usual Dry Fork Rd Exit (outlined here in BLUE)

Fantastic weekend spent at the Cinci TT. Weather on Sunday was perfect for fuel boats with cool air and little wind. A big thanks to Troy, TJ, Mario and Mark Scott for setting up the coarse, running the clocks and replacing what must have been a record number of balloons for a single event. I only brought one boat but managed to burn almost 2 gallons of fuel and bent a handful of turnfins trying to get a F-Hydro around the small 1/4 mile course.

I took a bunch of video's of Chris Grim's record setting 20 and 40 hydro, but need to upload them to YouTube once I get home. Looking forward to Mario's pics and video's too.

Thanks again guys, always a great trip up to run fast boats and see friends.

We had a great time here are some pictures from Saturday.
