Sorry for the lack of information and short notice. KiteUS is holding its first official course race this weekend in East Tawas Michigan on Lake Huron.

The race committee (John, Tom S and Steve M) are staying at the Timberlane Resort, which is at the entrance to Tawas State Park, but I heard they are booked 100%. This is going to be a laid back casual race structure so we can get the feel for it. I will post details on a riders meeting in Tawas at Timeberlane very soon once I hammer out the details.

Theres also a method of starting races used by small sailing clubs that dont have a race committe called a rabbitt start that works great and eliminates anyone being over the line early.You set up a heavily favored start line "slanted" One kiter is the rabbit and everyone has to cross the line aft of him. The rabbit crosses at the favored end first and the other kiters have the choise of either crossing to leward of him on the far end of the line or waiting until the last second and crossing the favored end of the line right on the "rabbits" tail. Its a great system used at kids sail camps and small club races and it totally eliminates any commitee except the guy with the horn and even that can be eliminated .

By the way Team Gnar is loaded with new kites 33 cans of warm PBR and a gallon of Ten High. We have taken the narcotics out of the equation due to the falling down problem.
