Hey guys, theres a bunch of boaters hitting the Great Miami (behind Columbia Bowl-st rt 128) tuesday evening.
Don,t forget there is all grades of fuel at the Sunoco across from Tri-State drag strip right down the road. Thats Aug 17.

David, heres where we race and tune at. Its about 8-10 ft deep and about 3/4 mile strait shot. We do 1,000 ft.
The water lays real flat all the time. Raider

With the water that shallow I bet it smooths out real quick too!

No video camera right now. It went for a swim :( I,ll get pix though. Its the perfect depth. Just deep enough for a capsul. Almost no current at pool.
We are just developing this site for racing. Lucas Oil reps have already checked it out. Now we're working on the township and
have some good friends on the council board. I have 400 ft of rope and have already pulled it for rope racing. We have divers, buoys, starting lites etc.. I expect next year we,ll be doing a monthly race. Raider

Great Miami was very cool. Happy to see and meet so many peeps. Funny story about the Checkmate. Parked it out in front of where I work tues morning with signs. had a looker at 9:30, back with cash and gone by noon. Had to drive back across town to get the Taylor. Well worth it.
Heres a few pics. My wifes camera, and I am too stoopitt to use it. but got a few good ones.
