Yep, great job as always Mike. And maybe the lardazz is getting used to you, it doesn't seem like he tried to trick ya as much this year. He is just a jerk.

Thanks Guys I really enjoy doing it. Brandon only had 48 hours notice he would lead the motley crew.

Leo's a nice guy and has been doing the event since the 1st one. He's learning.

Brent Becker from Powerboat sat in a few hours each day and did a great job makes me look like the amature I am . I think he may also narate the SPEED coverage that they shot.

Each year it gets better. I also thought Rance and Mike did and excellent job down on the docks and got a lot more people on the air then they were able in the past.

Considering it's a mix of radio, TV and volunteers that only work together once a year they do a pretty darn good job.

Dennis Klautzer does an excellent job of producing the event on the fly.

The only down side is there was some interference that was hard to overcome for the camera on the north side.

I hope KRMS gets to continue to cover the even when it moves.

Hey Mike,,, can you give us any insight as to the places that are bidding on getting the event next year. I was trying to overhear a conversation that certain folks were having when the mikes were off but couldn't get close enough...

All I heard was that Toad does not have it in the bag as of yet...

I don't think he could take the pay cut.
