Our Summer Thunder goal is for this race to be a racer-friendly event. One of the advantages to our race is that the workers who set the track up and who run the evet are also racers, and are very familiar with the glitches and requiremets of a boat race. We want our race to run as smoothly as possible so we are very open-minded to racer's suggestions.
