Isleton Race (2011)
The folks from Isleton would like to know if we are planning on coming up. They would like to see at least 6 COR boats. They have tow money and prize money. Now comes the "touchy" part. I would like to ask them to share the money equally among all of the COR boats. First, second, third place trophies, but share the money! For many years I had the fastest 6 liter around. Kentucky Fried Chicken offered to sponsor me and I took the money, then spread it almost evenly with all of the racers. The reason, what good would it do me or KFC if I was the only boat on the water? Truth of the matter is, many of the slower boats needed the money more than I and that goes for all the classes. Forget the ego of taking home the money. We need to support each other and we need to "help" some of the guys to get to the races, this is how we do it. If any of you would like to comment on this please feel free. In the mean time, I am working with the race folks from Isleton and will keep you all informed.
Rod Zapt, COR Chairman
