The Madison Regatta for H1 Unlimited Hydroplanes may have been canceled for this year, but the Dennis Holt Memorial Race for radio-controlled boats will go on as scheduled.

The annual race is scheduled for Saturday, June 27 at Krueger Lake on the former Jefferson Proving Grounds from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. According to Kevin Lichlyter with the PropWalkers RC Club, over 65 boats have registered for the race over several different classes. Lichlyter said that the group is currently working on food vendors and admission will be free.

The RC boats resemble their larger cousins in a lot of ways, depending upon their size and type of motor. Like other divisions of boat racing, the RC boats will run several heats with a winner-take-all final.



College to run Triple Crown Series

The Hanover College Triple Crown Cross Country Racing Series will be contested over three Wednesdays in July with a few adjustments to allow the race to follow with COVID-19 guidelines.

Along with social distancing being encouraged both before and after the race, water will not be provided at the finish and runners will need to bring their own drinks. Times results will be available after the race by place only; no name cards will be recorded. Pre-registration is also strongly encouraged. Those paying on the day of the event will need to pay the exact amount only. No change will be made.

The series kicks off on Wednesday, July 15 with the 3000-meter race and will increase to 4000 meters on Wednesday, July 22 and finally the 5000-meter race on Wednesday, July 29.
