Great Article in the Detroit Free Press

Detroit Free Press Sports Writer, Mike Brudenell, recently wrote a great story about the Gold Cup event.

"I've dusted off my soapbox and here I go once again: If you don't get down to the Detroit River and watch the unlimited hydroplanes race in a couple weeks time, well, you'll have missed the best local sports action of the summer and a chance to support the city of Detroit."

Volunteers Needed Wednesday July 2nd

We can use all the help that any DRRA person can help with. We are tidying up the race site and are about 80% done with the heavy stuff. This Wednesday the 2nd of July we are putting in the finger docks, the Med dock and the bridge to Piston Park. This is always a challenge with having enough young, spry men and ladies to help. Some of it just requires hooking and unhooking the cables for the crane that lifts them. Once a little training is done it is a real simple thing that just needs a lot of hands to get it done. This is a lunch day so come down even if you just want to watch the fun.
