Parker Boat Races 2017

Bluewater Casino fun with the gang!

Parker, Az

Our good friend Leslie of Tustin, Ca invited Brad and I to a weekend of boat races in Parker on the Colorado River (Arizona side) for Team Reiter as part of the support crew. We had a great time cheering for the driver Mark and seeing all the boats racing the course as we had never been to boat races before. We had excellent weather, plenty of ice cold beer and good people to keep us happy. All of the rooms at the Bluewater Casino face the river so great views and an easy to navigate casino (not too big). The best part was cheering on Mark as he came in 2nd on race day (Sunday)! In fact we had such a good time that we failed to come home on Monday and stayed another day! The last pics are of us at the saloons along the road home, enjoy.

The videos can't capture the exhilaration of boat racing; the smell of the high octane fuel, the roar as the big boats skim the surface of the water. We look forward to being a part of the races in October when they return to the Bluewater!
