    Default Heavy heart.. Update

    It's never easy to compose a post of this nature. We lost one of our own last Saturday. I was hoping the facts were mixed up but it looks to be confirmed. Roger "Deets" Winslow was thrown from his 28 Daytona Saturday at Berryessa and is still missing. Preliminary information is this was a slow speed situation, where the boat unexpectedly turned towards the driver side and Deets went overboard. He also had passengers who were unharmed and stayed in the boat.
    Deets was a great guy, experienced driver and loved performance boats. My thoughts and prayers go out to his family.. Godspeed my brother..

    I'll post more info as it comes in.

    Very sad prayers to his family and friends.
    If we die tomorrow, the company that we are working for could easily replace us in a matter of hours. But the family & friends we leave behind will feel the loss for the rest of their lives.

    Since it is out, here is a link to great article regarding Deets and his achievements in life.

    What a loss to not only his community, but to us all.

    RIP Deets, you will be missed by many...
