Came in last in Summer Series race, but had fun doing it

June 14, 2013

On Sunday, we all raced at Raceday Park MX for the third moto race in The Fat Albert's Summer Series. I was in the 250cc beginners class, and I finished dead last! It is hard to keep up with all those younger guys any more. However, I've got to keep trying, and one day, just maybe, I'll be able to beat those dudes. I still love it.
The next race is June 23, and it will be the Quads and Side by Sides Razors.
There will be an organized practice from 4 p.m. until dark on Saturday.
Cost is $15 per bike, all-terrain vehicle and peewee track.

It is about to heat up

June 13, 2013

The nice weather we have been having since school got out is about to end. Unfortunately, it looks like there are 100-degree temps in our near future.

With all the rain, our summer baseball teams have been having a hard time getting ball games played. It seems to come a downpour on game days — or there are church and basketball camps taking place.
However, baseball is about to kick in hard and fast. I have several games scheduled for the next two weeks. It's a good thing because those boys are itching for some action.
Have a great week!
