Seems someone asked me MY OPINION OF APBA the other day and Tommy Lasorda's rant came to mind. I see NAMBA a local club that has local races. At a COUNTY park MAMBA members have free access to the back gate. Every member gets a key to this gate. They have a small building with a row boat and kicker to chase their stalled boats, every member has a key to the building. The county has built them permanent grandstands and permanent driver's stand, both are from solid concrete.
These boats aren't cheap, but there are more than 400 new boats a year being build right here in Santa Ana, California. These RC racers have a "HANDS-ON" Club.
Boat Racing isn't dead, but everything has a life!
