2016 U-Make-It Race

Our 2015 race was very successful !!!  Those that participated had loads of fun and there were
some trophy winners among the Boy Scout Troops.  We established a rotating trophy for the
Boy Scouts that will move to the current year's over all Boy Scout Troop winner.

We also talked to Boys Life Magazine about publishing an article about the race and the Scouts
participation and received a favorable OK.  We are hopeful that before the year is out there will
be an article.    

Soon after the first of the year we will be publishing the details of this year's race including some
new and improved equipment and  ways  you can customize your existing boat.  Stay tuned!

The 2016 race date is Saturday May 14th so mark your calendar.  Keep in mind
that camping is available in a number of places at the lake so you might consider including
that activity too.

Several Troops we contacted last year for one reason or another were unable to participate.
Hopefully this year these troops will be able to join the fun.  If any of you know of a
troop that expressed interest to you please let me know who they are and what
their contact info is so we can include them in all of our communication.

We are shooting for eight to ten Troops this year so PLEASE contact me with the contact names
for other troops.  We will be trying to visit all of the Troops in Dec and Jan to offer our help and
to explain how it all works so watch for our phone call or E-Mail.
