Not going. I originally read that no spectators were allowed, only racers and their crew? Did something change or are you on a "crew"?

Sounds like a good time was had by all!
I hope they allow spectators for the remaining races, and announce early.

RitcheyRich and Fam have been waiting since MARCH!

It is a LOT of work to Crew an event. So kudos to the Volunteers, Race Organizers, Racers and Crews that made this race possible.

Crew on a boat would be mad fun, but bet it's intense!

Did anybody get any Pics??!!
Next races this Crazy season.

Sure hoping to see the circle boat races next month at Lake Ming. My wife and I are realy looking forward to going if they don't get cancelled or decide no spectators are allowed.

Keeping my fingers crossed RR. I'd hook you up if I could, for all you do for RDP.

Kern County schedule,, not sure if current, probably not. Worth a call, or 2 hundred.

It's the squeaky wheel that gets oiled!!

Even though on an abbreviated schedule,, the APBA has held races this summer in the upper Midwest. I made the first race in Parker, didn't croak. Even though I can't attend,, this is a chance I'd be willing to take.

I'll post up if I can find out anything when I call Kern Co. The NJBA may know more too.
Cheers 'Mates!

Thanks and we are sure hopeful the races can proceed with spectators. I've been told that Kern County is not locked down quite like LA County.

Well Inmates, just got off the phone with Kern Co Parks Dept. Glen there, nice guy, said unfortunately the no spectators decree would remain in place, subject to the State of Ca. easing existing restrictions. County of Kern remains at the mercy of the Demoncratic Newsom administration, along with the rest of Ca. Glen is hoping for a return to normal asap. He said they would update with any changes.

Campgrounds are open, but 1st come basis. State guidelines are in place. A Race team, or NJBA contact may help in getting in, as Inmates have pointed out.

I'd imagine not many Volunteers would be needed with no spectators.
We had an Army of our Job Corps Kids setting up, and volunteering for Bayfair in SD. Culinary Arts class fed all the Volunteers for years.

Wish I had better news, Mr. Ritch
Semper Fi!
