Racers Happy Tri-Cities Tradition Continues

Posted: Updated:

Sea-Tac, Wash.- Racers and American Boat Racing Association Officials gathered in Sea-Tac for their annual Awards Banquet were ecstatic the Water Follies are on for 2007.

Calling it one of the longest running traditions in the sport, former boat owner Bill Wurster said losing the Tri-Cities race would be "like losing a leg."

The races are expected to be bigger and better this year, with an estimated 15 unlimiteds on the river.

The 2007 Water Follies are scheduled for July 27-29.
