Tri-Cities Water Follies Boat Races are on!

Seattle, WASH - At the American Boat Race Association's annual meeting in Seattle on Saturday, ABRA Director Sam Cole said the Tri-Cities races and 5 other sites around the country are all a go for 2007.

The Water Follies Association has scheduled a 7:30am news conference for Monday morning, presumably to make the official announcement.

"Everybody's on board and OK," said Cole about the six race sites.

Dr. Ken Muscatel says there will be 10 national boats running this year - those are boats that run at every race site.  And as many as 15 at some sites, including Tri Cities.

"Real competition," he said.
