These pictures are great! Most of my pictures from the 70's and 80's were destroyed "accidently". I am really enjoying these! Thank You!

i'll try and post more this week on my reading week. right now i have 2 research essays to right for tuesday. so look for more about wednesday.
unfortunately most of my dad pics from peteborough are out of focus, so that eliminates one race site. to bring up some memories from peteborough though, how many people tried to run others into the fountain? i know my dad said john webster tried to push him into the fountain so my dad would back off and give him a position in BSH.

also, rumur has it sydenham might be back on the cbf circuit next year, pending the town's willingness to host a hydroplane race. no B classic hydros anymore though because of the noise, but i guess the sailboat club there burned some bridges with the lakefront owners with bouys that were in all year last year.

Dad's rig next to Russ's trailer. I was not there but Bobby & Gerald tell a story about trying to find Dad just before the green flag for 20SSR.....Maybe Bobby can elaborate.

Dad & another fella launching me in ASR. I believe the 26-B in the background was the fast Jay Gignac.
