    This is always a very fun event, and we may have seen the largest attendance so far. A good, clean, fun time was had by all. Everyone was a winner, just for participating.

    This was a job well done” by the Chamber of Commerce and all the volunteers who were there to make things go smoothly. Where would Lakeside be without it’s small army of volunteers who always seem to show up?

    Be sure to start planning your own boat for next year’s races. You’ll have a blast.

    Naomi Parker should give up her winnings to the poor seniors, put her free money where her mouths are…

    This is one event that should remain a Lakeside tradition. Thank you to all the entrants for a great effort and a fun show.
    Naomi bought a ticket just like everyone else. I hope she enjoys every penny. Too often community volunteers become targets. If you think you can do a better job, then volunteer!
