    Default 1969 Winternational Queen

    My brother wasn't very popular in APBA politics. But he was a Region Chairman, Council-man-at-Large and Senior Vice President. And loser when he ran for President.

    The Golden Shores people had a bunch of cash, they bought the land for $500 an acre and were selling lots for $2,500. I think, six lots to the acre. Havasu was selling land and they were promoting the Outboard World Championships.

    Somehow, the Golden Shores people "Hooked Up" with me through Jimmy Dawe. I told them lets put on the Winternationals.

    So, when my brother present the Winternationals to APBA they all went nuts. March Boat racing calling it a Nationals?????

    Well, my brother said, George National and Cylde Winter want to give us $25,000 for a race and my brother wants to call it the Winternationals. Well, for $25,000 in prize money APBA would let us do it once, but it wasn't a "REAL" Nationals...

    This is my Ted May Hydro, VC Konig D, and the queen.

    yup, that's what was on my "C" & "D" when I set the records at Lakeland in Feb. 1969.

    That must have started the notion of Winter Nationals. I think about that same time frame the Stocks had a Winter Nationals at Firebird Lake in Arizona.

    Going back to the picture you posted of you and Johnny Sanders at Parker 1970, do you happen to know if he is driving the Caesar Scotti 1969 Havasu winner? It doesn't look like the same paint scheme as a remember it, but I don't know why OMC wouldn't have someone running that boat at Parker after just winning Havasu.

    From Powerboat, a nice shot of the 1970 (by a foot) winner .....

    Default Same Boat, Slow As Hell with 17's on It

    Johnny was given Scotti's Havasu Winning Molinari and the winning set of props, that were 17's. He waS SLOW As hell as we had 19's and 21's from Phil Rolla. OMC said, "Scotti won Havasu with those props." 4 mile lap, rough as hell, Parker 13 mile lap, pretty smooth, really!

    FYI: The is Gerry Walin driving the "WINNING" wing.

    Default Once "OUR" Government Changed the "Land Swindle" Rules

    Once "OUR" government saved people from being "Screwed" by "LAND SWINDLERS" (They passed a law, that if you sold desert land,smaller than 5 acres, you had to GUARANTEE water for 20 years. All the land "Swindlers', including Havasu, went out of business.

    I think Frank and Wanda Zorkan got "Make a Wing" to help them and they put on, what very well have been the first APBA WINTER NATIONALS FOR POINTS, AND TWO WORDS. Clyde Winters would have been proud.
