Screaming 1/4 mile traning laps

So, rumor has it that Pete bought a boat where he can't actually forget to leave the drain plug out for the 1/4 mile race. This means I won't be able to catch every eddy and still beat him. So, I'm offering my services to hold a race clinic today on the 1/4mile. Pete, you and Texas Ken are invited so you can see the ideal race line. I even went to the lake yesterday and practiced sitting on the beach, envisioning my victory over you two. But, I'll be fair and invite you guys to see just how it's done this afternoon.

If anyone's up for some 1/4 laps, I'll be at the turnout this early evening at 5pm. The water is finally up where you can paddle it w/o taking off too much plastic, and i'm guessing it'll just get better until race day.

Damn sounds like Pete and Texas Ken better take advantage of the free lessons for the 1/4 Mile Race. I've heard that drain plugs sometimes can keep water from entering your boat which makes it a little easier and faster to paddle. However, there's supposed to be some pretty strong contenders this year so I would recommend EVERYONE TO GET IN A LAP OR 2! I heard rumors about Hojo envisioning success at the lake yesterday and I'm thinking he's really wanting to win The 2013 Golden Games Screaming 1/4 Mile Race this Friday. So what are you waiting for.......?log out and go meet Hojo for some training today!

I may have to come out of racing retirement one more time for this one. Those of you who don't know my racing background just be forewarned, I am fast as shit. Here is a preview of my boof in Lowers last week.



I do have to apologize to the fish and wildlife service for any harm I may have done to the local/state ecosystem with my Boof and promise to give er 50% from now on. (which is still your 200%)

Heck yeah you do, that's one hell of a atomic bomb boof! In addition, we have a ton of great prizes and an incredible time! Start early at the play park and "Paddle with the Pros" then hit up the 3rd Annual Screaming 1/4 Mile Race in the late afternoon. All you need to do is register online at The Golden Games and you'll be good to go!

We'll be out again tomorrow running laps at 5pm. Or you could go with the cool kids up to BR.

So far, no *nukewler* explosions so I guess Paulk hasn't been boofing much. I'm of the opinion his, and Gannon's boof looks more like this:

At this time I think it's important to remember what happened last time Paulk raced. If only there were some sort of video...

I didn't want to tell you this, Hojo, but I only took the drainplug out so that it would be a fair fight. And I, in a creekboat with a drainplug out, still beat you in your longboat.

After I kick your ass all the way back to MN this Friday, T-ROY will have the change the event to the "Screaming like a little bitch 1/4 mile race"
