    26 flips in one day? That was some rough racing! Good thing they weren't going all that fast.

    I was glad to see the results that Ouita Elmer sent in to OUTBOARD. Ouita was the mother of Clayton Elmer the very highly regarded boat racer from Highlands, Texas. Ouita was for many years chief scorer for the Lone Star Boat Racing Association, and one of the primary members of the Baytown Boat Club. Her husband Slim was Clayton's Dad and they were stalwart friends of boat racing wherever it occurred and spent every weekend supporting boat racing. Ouita not only was directly involved in registration and scoring of drivers, be she was also publicity chairman for LSBRA. You can see a lot of her race reporting in Modified, Outboard News and other publications from the 50's and 60's. I'm sad that we lost her early in my career. I could have learned a lot from her. Most of my copies of newspaper articles from my early boat racing days were from stories that Ouita sent to newspapers in Houston, Beaumont, San Antonio and Corpus Christi. Didn't matter that the race was in Houston, she sent the results to local newspapers where the boat racers came from. I could have learned a lot from Ouita early on.
