Bruce, if you really must know Smitty did not come in until Sat afternoon because he was working on other teams boats. That on top of the fact this was a new site with all rookie volunteers their wasn't much free time.

How is your year turning out? You gonna race or help develop any OSS sites?

Something came up at Harrison Twp that he needed to take care of and I applauded him for that because he didnt ignore when any teams need help. I guarantee you that it will happen at St. Clair! I will keep you and others posted!
If you come to St. Clair next year, I will be happy to meet you in person..

UNITED WE RACE!

Chris
Yes Chris

Smitty is a man of his word as is Augie. And Im sure they will both fullfill their offer to you. Good luck. I look forward to your report.

I will not be in St. Claire, But someday we'll get to meet.

regards

Hey Chris,
It was great finally meeting you and your lovely wife. All the guys feel the same too. I'm sure you have a new outlook on Offshore Racing seeing what goes on at a race site. Racers in the bilges of other race boats getting last minute things together helping one another. All the guys still had time to say hello though and everyone of them knew your screen name!! lol. As far as rides at a race site, sometimes we bite off more then we can chew, it's a hectic pace and theres just not enough time, I meant well. On the other hand, I will be in St Clair all week and have plenty of time, so if you still want a ride have your interpeter call me and we can set it up 631-559-0077. Thanks for being a fan. Louie

Louie,

Thanks again. Yes, I learned a lot about Offshore Boat Racing and it's awesome! I love it. Tina and I will be at St. Clair too! We all prepared for unexpected issues. Do you know that I can call you through relay call or video relay system. It's a new technology. Would you like to try that if I call you tonight to give you an idea of what it like?

Chris

Chris, the boat will be ready to race Sunday, both engines were full of water, cracked the upper case on the starboard drive, bent both connecting rods for the drive but Sticks is in St. Clair and he said she'll be done. I will be driving up with my crew Guilio and Kevin Friday night after 6pm, we should be in St. Clair around 8-9am if all goes well. Call me at 201-665-1033 and we'll see about taking you out for a fast ride. You'll have to sign an insurance waver but other than that, your in! See ya Saturday.

WOW after swimming with the fishes riding back and forth from MI all banged up and getting the boat back together Augie is still willing to find time to help out a new fan and a new friend. This is why OPA has grown to what it is today and We feel lucky to be a part of it.

P.S
Augie YOU DA MAN

Hey Chris,
An insurance waiver is something that all the racers sign that in laymens terms means we are all crazy and if we get go to the big race in the sky it's no ones fault but are own and if you are crazy enough to go in the boat with one of us your agreeing to that too!!! Louie
