    Tom David, can you make it to this one? I have been looking forward to this rematch since you posted the video of our heat last year. Rod G has been helping me try stay ahead of you this time.

    This race is shaping up to be a good one.

    MY MY.. what a race... THANK YOU TO ALL the Minuet Breakers that came out to help.. Thank you Cathy Preusse for your hard work in running the race. And to all the host CDs that jumped in when they could.

    It was a SUPER race. 4 rounds.. what more could we ask for. The weather was peeking in to challenge us BUT.. moved away and granted us a fantastic weekend of racing. The water was some of the BEST i have raced on in YEARS!

    Congrats to all the winners and I have to toss out a shout out to Kenny Mudd.. The KID CAN DRIVE.. I am looking forward to our next meeting!

    Congrats David Preusse on the Silver Cup..

    Lane one, three boat lengths ahead of you!
    Thumbs up to Cathy Preusse, the Minute Breakers, and the rest of the people that stepped up to make the Mendota race happen this year. I had a great time. I got to hang out with some old friends I hadn’t seen in a very long time, got to meet a lot of people I have known of, but never met face to face, and even got to race some boats!

    I need to add..

    THANK YOU RIPTIDE club.. your work at the race WAS VERY much a part of the success of the event. The RT gang worked the chase boat all weekend and it really helped with the pace.

    Thanks

    Grim
