Race Notes

  1. First, I would like to thank everyone for coming out for the race and hope each of you had a great time. It was great seeing each of you out there and look forward to seeing you next year.

  2. I would like to thank Al Olson for serving as race director on 10 minutes notice. Al served for many years as race director for the Dave Pain race. Also, i would like to thank Deano, Scooter, Dan Rock, Mac Larson, Tom Warren and Jim Vance for their support with their appearances on the race preview and commercial videos. And a special thanks to my son Sean for filling in as a camera man, i was really stoked to see one of the race start photos and see him in position for filming the race start without any briefing before the race. Other thank yous goes to Garyanne for recording the race results, Chrisanne our lifeguard, and Dr Lee for speaking to us about Melanoma.

  3. And personally, it was great working with my family in preparing for the race. The night before and the preparation of the posters was quite an ordeal, my niece Katy had dreams all night she was working in a sweat shop. She was. Katy and Diane making the posters. Terrence doing the coloring. Sharon working on the registration cards. Sean watching TV. I cant remember what i did. The next day we were joined by my sister Colleen, my nephew Derek, and cousin Mike. It was great seeing then again.

  4. Another special thanks has to go out to the Sandbar and Mike for their holding of the beer stop. It was a real hit.

  5. We missed our camera person, Margo this year and all her photos, especially during the awards ceremony.

  6. I was hoping to have a good film video of the race, but was short a few camera men. What we have is a bit jittery, so it will be hard to put something together, but i can see in the future that this is really going to be a nice race feature.

  7. Finally, thanks again and look forward to seeing you again next year.
