Good afternoon one and all in steamboat land,

I realize we are still a little ways away from the return of the Great Steamboat Race but wanted to see if there was any buzz in Louisville about it being a three boat "race" this year with the return of the AQ. Will the race course be any different as years past because of the sheer size of the AQ. Can't wait to see how she and the other two boats will get turned around all in the same stretch of river. Will the shore components (crew competitions) of the race happen again this year? I'll be riding one of the Belle's and hope to get some good pictures. Looking forward to a day of steamboat in the coming weeks and hope to maybe see a few familiar faces in Loeyville!
