    Default Password Problems, Contact Ron Hill

    I have learned to re set passwords in ABOUT 30 SECONDS. So far I have re set five passwords and still didn't get any posts.

    We have to have passwords and we have to OK new members or we get about 4,000 new "BOTS" a day.

    You look at the 1973 Propeller magazine and you realize there was a lot of boat racing going on!

    Takes me less time than that to forget a password------there are sites that tell me my password has already been taken, which is a load of old cobblers----- nobody in their right mind would pick my password.

    Hells teeth Ron------dead lice are dropping of the site-------is there anyone left alive out there?
    I read that a couple of the old farts cashed in, but surely there's a couple of live ones left out there!

    Just nice to know there's life out there somewhere-----my son Mark came across Jimbo a few years back when he was teaching a youngster how to go racing------last time I saw him was at the OMC shrimp bake in Havasu in 1971. Last time I saw Fred was at one of the FONDA races in the 80/s, ( wonder if he's still got the five o'clock shadow)
    Guess our paths haven't crossed since the early 70/s Ron .
    Ted May always looked to have a sour face but once you spoke to him turned out to be very affable.
    There are some great characters still turn up at the OFF meetings in Tavares-----you should at least give it a try Ron!

    John----ME TOO

    We just lay in the WEEDS sleeping till something like this post pops up. DePue pro [title series] nats this weekend. Havn't got enough boat racers to put on a race so get 2 sanctioning bodies, cut everything in half and wonder why we can't fill the field.

    John you at DePue? Keep us informed.

    In 1965 I was working at OMC for "LEAKY JACK". There were only 3 tech's in the race group-Mouse, Ray and Me[Bruce]. I lasted till '68. Jack made the mistake of telling me if I wanted to see a real race go to the ALKY nationals at DePue. We got the racing bug and never found a cure! I quit the race team at OMC in'68 so I could do my own thing. Had a lot of fun thru the years and met a lot of great people. Do think I'm cured now but no guarantee.
