    Default Molly B #27

    Ron, you made my day.

    When I was going through some stuff a few days ago, I saw Molly's photo in the binder with OPC & inboard flat bottoms at Palacious. Then Jeff's post pops up and I go back to it. I remembered reading about her in Powerboat, but I was thinking drags like Jeff mentioned. I knew it was Molly though, so I put it out there waiting for someone to confirm it. Thanks.

    Default Top Picture

    Bruce Nicholson and Charlie Bailey. And that picture wasn't from Yelm. I was looking for one more last night at 11:30 when I got a call a rig between Victoria and Houston would be ready by the time I got there. So I just sent the only other one ready to go & took off. Just got back 11:30 this morning.

    Default Yelm

    Sorry to throw you off like that Ron. We always enjoyed Yelm. We there in 1980? also. It was when Mt St Helens blew out. My dad drove up & I flew in. He told about some incredible sights.

    In one of the little towns out there someone broke into his suburban during the night and stole his suitcase and a 12 ga. shotgun. Since he was a big man, he was more concerned about the clothes. Out in some nearby woods, he spotted something white. He went over and found a shirt, then a little farther some more clothes. The thief was digging through the suitcase as he went, discarding clothes along the way. He eventually recovered all or most of it at the end including his shotgun.

    The two regrets I have about Yelm are, you could not test to get the setup right before the races, and I always forgot the clock turned solid black. Both times I burned the first heat circling around looking for the hand and when I realized what was going on I would be way out of position.
