American Boat Racing Association Chairman Sam Cole announced that Mike Denslow, President of the Tri-City Water Follies, has joined the ABRA's Board of Directors. Denslow is with Wells Fargo Bank in Kennewick, Washington.
Denslow replaces Tom Sawyer of Evansville, Indiana, who had served on the board since the ABRA's inception in 2004. Cole commented that Sawyer, "Has been solidly behind the ABRA since we first formed the organization, and his contributions have been very much appreciated."
Sawyer is one of the key individuals spearheading Thunder on the Ohio, scheduled for August 21-23, and will continue in that role.
Of Denslow, Cole said, "Mike Denslow's credentials as a banker, as well as the fact that he is President of one of the most successful events on our schedule, will make him a very valuable member of our board. We are very pleased that he has agreed to serve on the ABRA Board of Directors."
