Did it like a true sportsman

I do not wish to be critical of your reporting of the recent boat rodeo.

I do not wish to be critical of your reporting of the recent boat rodeo.

As I watched the bathtub race I did notice that these young drivers put on an excellent show of safe boating and a great effort in sportsmanship.

However, there was one young driver who should have been recognized above all others, #240 (editor’s note: Nathan Barlow).

Not only did he finish his laps at least five laps ahead of the the others but he did it like a true sportsman.

I think what we have is a world class formula boat driver in training.

To this driver, I salute you for a race done in grand style and a finish well deserved.
