Hi Matt!

The highs for me were being able to watch Offshore Powerboating and Poker Runs Locally. The lows for me were hearing of Offshore Powerboat racing accident that took the life of racer David Raabe. I had seen David Raabe racing a number of times over the years and was sad to see that he was killed in a racing accident. Another low for me was the racing accident at the St. Clair River Classic in which local racing legend Keith Holmes of Cat Can Do "American Ethanal" Team lost his life ib a racing accident, which involved his good friends from the Miss Geico Race Team. I still think about that day, I had met Keith Holmes a number of times and just felt so bad for his family, Race Team, racing family and fans and like I said I still think about him, it was an extremely sad day for all. Then when I read about the loss of Joe Sgro from O/L in a boating accident, I just couldn't believe it. We all know that there is an element of danger associated with Offshore Powerboat Racing and Performance Powerboating but you always hope it never happens but 2017 did have its share of tragedies. I will never forget these Water Warriors which I loved to see and hear about over the years. R.I.P.

Beautifully said, AB.

Happy New Year! May 2018 be filled with more triumphs and few tragedies.
