May 15, 2010 was the date for the Lake Fenton Laser Regatta- EJ O'Mara sailing fundraiser.  It was a beautiful day for the event with sunny skies and a 7- 10 knot North Easterly. As sailors were arriving breakfast was set out and everyone got to enjoy a wonderful and hearty breakfast compliments of Mary O'Mara(mother).  At 10:30 the competitors launched and three solid races ensued.  Lunch was served on the water and with that extra time we were able to get three more races off thanks to the excellent work of the head race comittee Dave Nickels.  At the end of the day awards were handed out to top three finishers and top junior.  After excluding myself from the results the finishes were, 1st Peter Johanson 2nd Urs Geiger T3rd Ariel O'Mara T3rd Mary Vorel and Top Junoir Timothy Nickels.  They all got an awesome picture (compliments of Ariel O'Mara) in a nice wooden frame (compliments of Joe Abbott). 


I think the best thing about the whole event was the support I recieved from Lake Fenton Sail Club and its members, my family, and all the friends that volunteered to help or just came out to support me.  I would like to give a special Thanks to the immediate O'Mara family, the Beckman family, the Oslund family, and Dave Nickels for which without them none of this would have been possible.
