  • I’m a former inboarder that’s trying to bring back some activity in the MACH series, I too would like to see some of the former race sites, such as Decatur and Dayton come back. It takes a lot of money though, there is a lot more than paying for the cranes, just ask Sean Bowsher some time.Always willing to help out. Dave Sutton

  • Next year, dayton will be back on. The valves have been fixed. Now we just have to wait to see if they will bring it back. As far as clinton, I hope it runs!

  • Would love to see Dayton back as a Region 6 Inboard event. The economy makes it tough however. 


    What races we had in 2011...Waterford, Walled Lake, and Celina, all run very tight budgets. Losing Rocky Fork in 2011 was painful and hopefully they will find the $$$ to make it happen in 2012. 


    It really does come down to money...Sanction fees, Insurance, Security, Advertising, Mailings, Programs, Cranes & Crane Operators, Fire & Safety on and off the water, Officials, Event Support (Restrooms, Sound/PA), Radio Race Coverage, Awards/Trophies, Hotel Costs for Officials, Oh...and prize money. I'm getting a headache just thinking about it.


    No easy answers...but there's a lot of hard working people locally at every race event making it happen every year...
