Is there any way you can get me a list of people racing at NJBA (Ming specifically) since 1990 that have lost there lives? This not for any kind of law suit. I am just trying to put together a memorial for them. From what I can remember, there was Mike Bowman in Electric Blue, The guy in the hydro whose helmet was coming off and caused him to crash. The guy in Lance Oster's old jet, The guy in the hydro that went up on the Hill, Stevie Smith, and I cannot remember any other's. Again, this is not for anything other than setting up a memorial for them. It was actually my mom's idea. She was very distraught over Stevie's passing and she wanted to do this. Thank you in advance.

They borrowed a battery from us. I was standing next to the older gentleman that owned the boat when it happened. That was awfull. Wierdest thing I have ever seen a boat do. Very sad.

Tony, Let's not forget Jim Benson, April 93 I believe. A good friend and fantastic competitor...
Edit to add it was an IHBA event if that matters.... Still feels like it happened yesterday if I start thinking about it...
And another edit to add if you need any help with this $$$ or otherwise, call me.
