LWRC Racing

Winning Costume…Mad Scientists!

This year’s Head of the Troll was a smashing success!

Mother Nature was kind and gave us a gorgeous morning with beautiful water for a successful morning of racing. What a great mix of 1x’s, 2x’s, a 3x, 4x’s, wherry 4+’s, and a mixed 8+!

We had a great mix of costumes this year from our winning Mad Scientists and Trolls to Crazy Clowns and Neverland.

After the racing, there was a great celebration with good food, good drinks, and great music! Check out the latest e-bulletin for a full recap and more pictures.
