The Radio Control Boat Races at Terrible's RV Resort -- FAST action!
We found out that the RV Resort was hosting a radio controlled boat racing event on the pond over the weekend that we were going to be there, and naturally, Rick was delighted! We were not sure what to expect, but as the racers were setting up, we found that the boats were some 4' long and powered by large, gas engines. This looks very interesting!
Fortunately, there was a rescue boat and crew that stayed very busy retrieving boats that did not complete the race for one reason or another. I was also surprised to see that all of the boats that had to be rescued were able to compete later on. Apparently, these are pretty tough boats!
