    Arrow Nothing to see here, move along

    In the interest of the Comp Jet class, and circle boat racing in general, I've deleted my original post. My apologies to the CJ racing community and anyone whose feathers got (or get) ruffled. Go work on your boats, Parker is less than 3 weeks out.

    Although I doubt you were looking for that credit it's about time Jim, congrats.

    Agreed. I'm thinking many of the people currently racing in Comp Jet weren't around when Jim was putting in all that time and effort to get it going again....could be wrong though.

    By the way Jim, they sell a hat that would probably work out pretty good for you at the Majic Mountain theme park...

    Im sensing some sarcasm in the thread, but hell knows I've seen Jim pushing this 10 times more than everyone else combined. I know it was a group effort, but Congrats are in order for being recognized. Rock on, Jim.

    Really? BTW, what did it say prior to the edit?

    I would guess any "advertisement" (brainfart/lack of a better word) would be better than none for the little known sport of jet boats racing in circles regardless of whom the credit was given to but what the hell do I know.

    Persoanally I think this is credit going where credit is long over due. There have been others who have tried to take this from Jim, but regardless of the how's or why's, Jim was the one responsible for getting this class going in the direction it's gone, and gotten to today. Like him or not, agree with his methods or not, this is his baby.

    I completely agree with you on this point Rod.

    It would be something that APBA would have to sign off on. I really don't see it happening anytime soon. But Roger Finny and I have talked about it a bit. Not sure where it will go, most likely it will be an enclosed cockpit class if it happend.
