Overall winners Saturday (unofficial results) for 125cc Hydro were:
1st - BJ Tetro,
2nd - David Augustine (David took 2 1sts then jumped the gun on a 3rd heat),
3rd - David Jones,
4th - Ellison (missed the 1st name because of motor noise),
Ralph Donald finished 5th.
Overall winners today for 500cc Hydro were:
1st - Sean McKean,
2nd - Ike Yoder (Ike gave Sean a real run for the money),
3rd - David Hooten,
4th - Jack Gossman,
5th - Jack Wright.
There were only 2 boats for the last heat of 500cc Hydro due to 4 dropping out from mechanical issues. McKean and Yoder put on quite an exciting show with McKean pulling out in front on the straight-a-ways but Yoder cutting tight turns to take the lead coming out of each turn. McKean won by barely a boat length.
Tim Small won 250cc Runabout overall and Gary Buskirk won 350cc Hydro overall.
K Pro Hydro had quite a few entries, including new driver Tyler Thirlby.
Amy Nydahl took 1st overall (2 2nds and 1 1st).
Wendy Eldredge won 2 heats but jumped the gun on the 3rd heat so lost 1st place overall due to points. Wendy took 2nd overall.
3rd place went to Kurtis Nydahl. (dad Pete should be proud - 2 winners in the family)
Everyone had a great time. The weather was sunny and no winds to cause problems.
Saw lots of old friends. I got to visit with Dr. Phil Wagner and also Jerry Simison's brother, Paul, that I hadn't seen in 35 years. He was taking pictures of the races for his own personal collection. Paul shared with my wife and me wildlife photos he had recently taken. Paul is an expert photographer!
