    Just wondering if you send out an alert letting everyone know if the "water conditions" allow for a race prior to showing up with either a boat or as a spectator

    So I'm sitting at home after emailing and calling instead of going to this event blind, couldnt get any answers. According to the flyer I understand that the race is today but what time does it start? Considering that your announcement says pending water conditions it might be nice to let people know if the race is in fact taking place. Who wants to drive an hour just to find out the event was canceled.

    You should be running these events to increase spectator turnout and maximize exposure for your sponsors!

    Just saying

    I am sorry I missed your post.

    The comment on the flyer about lake level is for the September race and not the May race. Any updates to the lake level will be posted on the website, Facebook page and here on Performance boats as soon as we have the information. If nothing is posted the race is happening.

    I wish you would have left a message I would have returned your call as soon as I received it.

    At the next race I will try to update the Facebook page and Performance Boats daliy. There is WIFI in the area.

    The wind beat us up perty good but we did get a Gambler race in on Saturday and a Points race on Sunday. Please look for a full report here by the end of the week.

    Starting times will be added to the flyer. Thank you for that suggestion.

    Thanks for the update much appreciated. And since you are kind enough to so far consider suggestions.....would you consider posting mutiple pics of the boats, owners, drivers, home towns, each teams sponsors if they have them etc. Racing is either a business or a hobby and both need to be well publicized.

    Thanks
