As the countdown to the 2015 336 Parker Enduro begins we will begin posting these monthly updates about where we are at with the race, and what the latest going on's are behind the scenes.

To complete our list for our rules committee we have secured a very seasoned outboard guy Greg Foster! Greg will sit on the committee along with Ben Marronne, Bob Teague, and Dave Rankin.

Two weeks ago I put a call out for input from the racers for input about the rules, as well as input about where the event can be improved upon as well. All of the e-mails that I have received have been forwarded to Ben and Dave to be discussed at the meeting with Bob and Greg. If you haven't sent your thoughts in DO IT NOW! The e-mail address to send your suggestions and thoughts to is 336ParkerEnduro@gmail.com !

At least two of the e-mails I received didn't have any input but rather said We would like to be at the rules meeting to offer input in person. If you haven't figured it out yet, I am doing it this way for a reason. 30 guys with huge ego's arguing the finer points of boat racing in a room would be less then productive, it would be borderline anarchy with a side of boxing gloves. Please guys just write your thoughts out in an e-mail and send them in. You have my word that each e-mail will be discussed at length for both it's pro's and it's cons by the guys on the list above. While I haven't seen anything yet, I do know the direction that they are going is to be less "defined" and more "inclusive" with regard to regulations on boats, and let the Qualifying work as intended.

I met with the Parker Chamber of Commerce last week to start a collaberative effort to get the town and its resources more involved in the 2015 Enduro! The meeting went well. We are starting with single screen T-shirts that will be sold at various locations around town, and on here to not only promote the Enduro amongst the town, but as well start fundraising and putting the profits towards 2015. The shirts will have funny and quirky little sayings on them like "336 For Life" and "I :missb: The Parker Enduro." We will also be making stickers for the store fronts and sponsors that will say things like "Parker Enduro Supporter" and Truck window Stickers that they 336 Enduro etc.. If you are interested in selling these items out of your business to support the cause, please send an e-mail to 336ParkerEnduro@gmail.com and let me know!

As we mentioned in our first update, I had reached out to the NWSRA to see if we couldn't get the Ski Racers out there on the same weekend. I am happy to say that things went well at their board meeting and they voted to do something with the Enduro! Details of what is happening with that are being discussed between the NWSRA and our Race Director Dave Rankin. I'll let you guys know more when things are finalized. What does that mean for us? More Ski Race Outboards, and more Division 7 boats hopefully! I don't know about you guys, but I'm pumped at the idea to see some Turbo 210's and Vectors and Force's go up against the Nordic.

Lastly we have a little limerick to lead us into next months update. First guy to figure it out will win himself an RDP T-shirt!

Their Cute, their ugly, they fly and hop,
Their cheap, their expensive, their fun non stop.
They'll start the show, with less then go and only one can come out on top.

I can sell out of our storefront and turn all profits back over to the enduro if that helps in any way. we have warehousing, office staff and shipping all in place so adding another product doesn't really make a difference.
