We are looking forward to some fun and exciting projects to embark on over the summer. On the schedule for sure is Operation Kayak Adventure. Being a highly experienced kayaker, which means I've been on the water twice, we are planning a four day, three night trip on the Cedar River. We're going to start around St. Ansgar and end wherever it happens to go. OKA is still in the early planning stages as lodging and river obstacles are being accessed. We're shooting for a late summer launch.
Another project in the works is titled Green, White, Checkered. It is going to be a road trip around Iowa to visit as many dirt tracks as possible. Our target is ten to fifteen tracks. We already hit our first, as our "home" track, I35 Speedway in Mason City, had their opening night of races on April 11. It was a little chilly to say the least but a fun night of racing nonetheless.
The inaugural The Sportstew Golf Invitational is taking shape. It looks like a sponsor for the event is very close to signing and the host course has be narrowed down.
As our technical know-how evolves, some podcasts will be produced. The eventual goal is to have bi-monthly podcast episodes available for your viewing pleasure. We look forward to posting some random, highly opinionated news articles, interviews, maybe a even a mailbag, and other miscellaneous tidbits.
