Todd, I just remember the races when I was a kid in Spokane and the older boats running on CDA Lake, looking forward to the races this weekend again and the old hydros

Good Morning Todd,

It's nice to know that I have contacts in Oregon,

I am looking forward to sharing some of my recollections of boat racing with fellow

enthusiests on this website.

I have been involved with racing since 1951 and I am looking forward to sharing both pictures and memories with other members.

Bill Grunow,
