Southern Bay Racing News You Can Use #562, Turkey Shoot Hospice Regatta

PUT THIS GOBBLER IN THE BOOKS!The 2011 TURKEY SHOOT HOSPICE REGATTA wrapped up yesterday after two and one-half days of partying, live bluegrass music, racing, and general blow-out fun on the Myer Creek – Corrotoman – Rappahannock Rivers water axis. Saturday Mother Nature gave the racers a beautiful Fall day on the Rapp with bright sunshine and moderate breezes. Of the 84 entries (all classic designs at least 25 years old), 79 raced and all who started finished.

On Sunday, hopeful of a repeat of Saturday conditions, racers started the traditional pursuit race in light breezes that got them up the track, but then evaporated.  Twelve (12) of the hardiest finished the race in mere vapors and the turkeys were put to bed.  Kudos go to Ken and Karen Knull, owners of host Yankee Point Marina, for their extraordinary support of the Hospice effort on the Northern Neck.  Here are the  TURKEY SHOOT FLEET WINNERS:  Fleet C: Joe and Linda Waters, Birthday Party  (Joe and Linda earned the birth in the National Hospice Alliance Regatta in St Petersburg next spring).  Fleet D: David Williams, Poe Bird;  Fleet E: Dick Moylan, Windtimidation;  Fleet F: Frank Murphy, Last Boat III;  Fleet G: Mike Chesser, Scuba Kat;  Fleet H: Bob Adcock, Felicity;  Fleet I: Ned Crockett, Ladybug.   Event Chair: Karen Knull;  Principal Race Officer: John McCarthy;  Scoring: Anna Mulvany;  Signal Boat Captain: Mike Thompson (Contessa);  Mark Boats: Tom Ashe and Mosby West (Wild Fire); Jim Young and Gary Fricke (Dwindle Down); and Don Crabtree (Jammin’).

The Turkey Shoot Hospice Regatta is a special event to a lot of folks.  For some it’s their birthday weekend, for some it’s a return to a favorite place, and so on.  But, for Joe and Linda Waters of Columbia, South Carolina,  it’s super special.  Last year (2010) Joe and Linda were married at Turkey Shoot and this year, of course, they celebrated their first anniversary.   Now, that’s a way to keep track of your anniversary date!!
