Now, growing up in Detroit, Unlimited Hydroplane racing on the Detroit River was a big deal every summer.

Imagine my surprise on settling in Seattle and learning that the same ritual occurs every summer on Lake Union Washington; Mrs Drang heard as much about Miss Pay 'n' Pack and Miss Budweiser growing up as I did.

Today at work I learned that The Salt Mines are going to sponsor their own entry in this year's Seafair races: Miss Management.

Wow I know I havent' followed Seafair in years but when did they move it from Lake Washington to Lake Union?

I remember pulling home made hydroplanes around behind our bikes - yikes that was a long time ago.
