Over 115 boats started this 2 day event, OMC won with Johnnie Sanders at the wheel. Some classic tunnel boat racing. Filmed by Nick Springate and produced by Mark Benson, both from Vancouver Canada.

While going through Powerboat Magazines for articles on the OMC RC engines I came across a Mel Zikes column about the 1967 program for Havasu. It's really great and I was going to post it on what I thought might be a Havasu thread. There's been a lot of good posts about Havasu but my search didn't come up with a thread about Havasu in general....only about specific years or stories imbedded in other threads. I think Havasu, Parker and St Louis should have their own threads like we have on Alexandria and DePue. The same goes for Lakeland, Yelm and DeLake and other famous race courses that were around for a long long time. Anybody else agree?
