We need to bring back the BIG, mass appeal crowd pleaser attractions to Lake Winnipesaukee, which of late has turned into, much of the time, sleepy, backwater. I have heard that there used to be big water skiing extravaganzas like you would see in those old Hollywood movies. I have also read stories of the old wooden cigarette boat races. I remember, vividly, two ‘Off Shore Racing Boat’ races in the Broads, c. 1999 — maybe 1999 and 2000. Those were cool. That was exciting. We went by boat. They were helicopters filming the race. It was Florida in NH. Plus you could go to Weirs and look at those huge, long boats with giant engines. Now, nothing. Lets have Zapta Racing. That would reinvigorate the Lake and surrounds.
