7/4/17 Great day for the 4th of July Cup race! There were 10 boats in the Open Fleet and 2 boats in the C Fleet. For the overall winner in the Open Fleet, it ended up being a battle between the Lantz Brothers and the Lantz father-son team with Mason and Noah Lantz finishing in front of Steve and Ethan (PLSS student) Lantz. PLSS instructors and students took the first 3 spots on the open fleet with Even Furr coming in 3rd. In the C-Fleet, Tom Stadum finished in front of Burgums.

6/25 Today's excitment had nothing to do with the races. About 12:30, word came out that Dick Chadinha's boat had sunk. Turns out, they were coming out to the race, forgot to fill the water ballast, wind knocked them down and flooded the cabin, sinking the boat. Fortunately no one was hurt and about 5 hours later, with help from many, the boat was brought to shore, pumped out and put back on the lift.
Ohh... that ever so important check list!
