    Default (2) San Antonio Lake Events cancelled

    Both the Hot Boat Outlaws and the Classic Vdrive Club of America events have been cancelled. I made calls to Donnie of the HBO and Rob of the CVDCOA and talked to them about the young man that was severely injured today when the boat he was riding in hit an unmarked sandbar. I was also informed that sandbars were appearing at the East end of the Lake, as well as the West end. Both Associations feel that the safety risks out weigh going ahead with these events and possibly causing injury to a participant. If there are any questions, feel free to give me a call.
    Thanks,
    Denis

    That is bad news. Sorry to hear some one has been injured. Better to cancel it now, then to have some one get killed from a sand bar doing 60-90mph.
    No reason to push it. FIRST RULE: Safety, SeCOND RULE: See rule one!!

    Launch from South Shore. The safest routes are to then play in the East end of the lake towards the Dam. Do not venture West of the Marina. As you approach the Dam end, there is a big rock slide into the Lake on the North side-sand bars are reported there.
    Be careful,
