Not nearly as many boats as last month. A good day for racing though with a lot of unexpected wind shifts and lulls. Bragging rights for the day go to Don Frakes, Shoe and Fred Bock for first, second and third, respectivley. Pond side it was announced that Pat took third but he did not participate in the middle four races.

Thanks to Pete Kruse for directing the event and Herb Martin for assisting during part of it.

B4 Points Race, October 31, 2010

We got in 10 races but the early going was grim. Even after having delayed the start of racing by one hour we still often face near dead still conditions at the outset. Bragging rights for the day go to Don Frakes, "Shoe" Schumacher and Fred Bock for first, second and third, respectively.

Thanks once again to Pete for conducting the event and to Erwin deRoggenbuke for assisting.

B5 Points Race, November 28, 2010

We got in all 12 races today even though initially it was considered to call it a day after 8 due to much less than ideal conditions. The wind was blowing very hard, seemingly from all directions at once, and the pond was covered with leaves or mines as Pete referred to them at the skipper's meeting. After 8 races were completed conditions improved somewhat so we pressed on. Bragging rights for the day go to Don Frakes, "Shoe" Schumacher and Fred Bock for first, second and third, respectively.

As it turns out bragging rights for the B series also go to Don Frakes with 29 points, "Shoe" Schumacher with 39 points and Fred Bock with 81 points for first, second and third, respectively.
