Supercourse Nationals was Awesome
It was just awesome down there and it was alot of fun. It's really different to how we do supercourse in region 8. Alot of ours because of lack of buoys just use most of the closed course and put a few buoys way out. The course Marty and his crew setup was great. Only turn that was hard was the yellow sweeper(cant remember what they were calling it) that was towards the center of the course but close to the shore.
Saturday I did very well, got 1st in Novice R/A 1200 Stock and placed 3rd overall. I wanna say there were about 20 racers on the line for race four and the classes were Novice R/A Stock, Novice R/A N/A Stock, Amatuer Master Open, and Novice Women Open. I held the 2nd spot overall for a while till i got passed in a turn by a yellow noble racing rxp lol.
Sunday I had a good start and was in 4th overall and 2nd in my class till the 2nd lap on that yellow inside sweeper I hit some cross chop and got thrown right off the side and my left grip came off with me. After struggling to get my goggles back on and the grip on I was hauling. I wanna say I dropped from 4th to about 15th or so after falling, but it felt like I passed alot more. 30mins + 1 lap later I was in 9th overall 3rd in my class and on the ass of the guy who was 2nd in my class. Only needed that 2nd extra lap(only did 1 extra cuz of thunder storm coming in) and I probably would of gotten that 2nd thus winning nationals but hey there is always next year
Got to meet a few of the forum members, Franko, Jetskidady, and Compwhiz. I think they saw the 4-tec t-shirt lol. Overall it was a awesome time and my hat is off to region 5 for puttin on such a great race and I cant wait to go back next year and race again
Here are two pictures my mom took at the awards party.

Yeah, the 800 boat was Mike Younts. He is a great rider and had the fastest boat there. He was killing everyone until he spun out and then broke his pump.
