It’s been a great start to 2015. My green sealed bearings have lasted almost 6 months in both my pro4 and 2wd short course trucks. I’m currently in striking position at a podium spot in the Phil Hurd Raceway Winter Point Series and I’m looking forward to some big races in the second quarter.
Thanks for your support!!
Great start to the year, we’ve had a poor wet season but the fishing has been very good. On our prefish for the first round of the Top End Barra series we landed over 30 Barramundi with the smallest measuring 65cm and the largest a very long healthy 102cm(30lb). A lot of large fish and high numbers is very rare and this would have been one of the best trips I’ve been on. It was my first outing for the year so it was an excellent confidence builder.
Day 1 of the Barra Series started a little slow, I hooked only 3 fish for the day I managed to land 2 of them. One was 92cm about 25lb and the other 65cm about 10lb, unfortunately the third one was around 90cm again, it put on a most spectacular show, jumping at least double its length out of the water and putting on several big runs, after 15 minutes the fish managed to straighten the hooks just before getting to the landing net disappointing but very entertaining.
Day 2 continued to be slow but I persisted with my plan and kept fishing areas where I had during the prefish, it paid off as I landed another nice fish this time 80cm. I hadn’t seen another fish caught all day so I was starting to feel like my tally was going to be high on the score board.
I had a plan and stuck to it although at times it was testing, I knew where the fish were and what time of the tides they would be feeding. My persistence paid off and I managed 5th position for the first round; I would have like to finish better, my goal is always to fish to win and finish in the top 10 and anytime I make top 5 or better is an excellent result that I’m proud of.

Thanks to Boca Bearing for all of your help and support this season

First I want to thank Boca Bearings for their continued support for our Giant Scale event for the last 9 years. This year we were fortunate enough to have almost impeccable weather. This has been missing the last few years.
The accompanying photos were taken by a local sheriff’s deputy who is a club member and an excellent photographer.
We had 32 registered pilots and almost 50 aircraft. There were plaques awarded for 6 categories.
Thanks to you and all the other suppliers I believe almost everyone went home with a few goodies for themselves.
The Boca Bearings gift certificates went to John Mangino who changes the engine bearings for most of the guys that fly. John has used and recommended your stainless steel bearings to everyone.
We had over a 125 spectators this year which is good for the time of year as a lot of the winter visitors are already gone. We walked a lot of them through the pits so that they could observe the planes up close. We also give out a lot of the small wooden gliders that we bought to little kids to enjoy.
Great Planes sent us a Flight simulator which we gave to a Jerry Deebach from Sierra Vista, who deals with children who are less than fortunate. We try to return our good fortune to the community if possible. Sincerely, Paul Goldsmith
