    brad, if u wants a guarantee first place beginner is for you, but if u r a little good on that ski, then go for the challenge, novices. there will not be many in that class too.

    Re: Need More Louisiana Racers

    Ive took my ski out 7 times since i got it two weeks ago, ive progressed alot with turns and highspeeds in chop my only concern about it all is that i dont have any buoy experience. I dont want to enter beginner and it be a cake walk but at the same time i want to be able to hang in novice. Does boomtown currently have there buoys out, if so im down to go run them with someone this weekend. Also would like to meet some of you guys so you can fill me in a little more on all this.

    Brad:

    Sorry for the long time away. We have not gotten a permanent course set at Boomtown due to alot of fisherman would assume they belong to the lake and so set trout lines in the river with them. lol... I would run beginner. There should be at least one other skier there in beginner the first race of the year. Either class you choose to run will be free for your first race. The Novice will be combined with Amature riders which is second and 3rd / 4th year riders. Brian and the R5 staff give you a very detailed course orientation and give you a seperate riders meeting to go over all the rules, flags, cousre starts, turns and so forth. Once I get done with my honeymoon and get settled back in at work I will have my weekends mapped out of when I can go ride. Unfortunatly thats only the weeken before the races which I plan to go to genes and ride.

    You should make plans to be in BAYTOWN at Genes this saturday, There will be some junior riders and pro am riders there and they can give you some question and answers and you can get used to the water.. If you do wanna go call me. Ill be working days all weekend but can help u get there over the phone its real easy its just off IH 10... 409-466-5897......

    Also , I would agree with 97... There is a better demographic for FL. MS. and AL riders in Gulfport. Obviously Its more of a drive but they have some good racing there I here. R5 is growing and looking for more riders to come to the races as we did 2 years ago... Bottom line any jet ski race is fun no matter where it is..... You can also contact the promotor personally His name is Brian leave him a message 214-498-3592 good luck...

    Re: Need More Louisiana Racers

    Im not gonna be able to make it that far out this weekend, but will be riding the lake here. Is a wetsuit required, i have one but i broke the zipper 2 weeks ago. Between now and then do you have any free weekends or days? ill come over to your neck if so, and we can ride a bit..

    Re: Need More Louisiana Racers

    No,

    A wetsuit is not required, but helpful if its cold. Man, usually I would be out at boomtown by now either during the week or weekends cause there is not much traffic on the water yet. I just got married a month ago and I will be going on my honeymoon in a week. I also have to finish moving my wife in before I get some seat time. I do plan on riding at least twice before the first race to help some friends out for the start of the year. I wont be at the races, Im working nights...
    I should be able to ride the 2nd and 3rd weekends and week 17th to 20th. Hope that helps. Your asking good questions, do you think you can get your superjet buddy to come as well? Trust me you will get plenty of time to practice if you go on Friday night when they finish the set up of the course or if you need time to get with on Saturday morning they will work with you in enough time ot get the races going. They wont just throw you out there. get in touch with Brian, he will let you know whats going on.

    Otherwise yeah, we can ride this summer. I buy bouys at Gander mountain in Beaumont in the boating section. Academy has bouys but they are the hard orange ones and they are expensive. You will see our set up when u come over to ride.

    Re: Need More Louisiana Racers

    Looks like there's a guy in Austin who has a blaster just got an older super jet and is considering racing. I told him about you and lets see what he says. Looks like the beginner class is gonna be good. SJ vs.SXR so far. Now all we need is somebody with a Octane and its a manufactor battle again.
