KENNEWICK -- It's such a nice weekend, with the weather and all.
But if you're planning on taking your boat out on the Columbia River, be advised that there will be testing near Lampson Pits today for Grand Prix, 1-liter hydroplanes and flat-bottom boats in preparation for the upcoming season.
Testing is from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. today, and there is no charge to attend.
Boaters are asked to use caution in the water near the testing.
On May 18, two unlimited teams -- the U-11 Peters & May, and the 88 Degree Men -- will be testing in Lampson Pits.
The 88 team is not the Schumacher Racing team anymore. It is now the Gregory Racing team from Las Vegas. The Gregory family is back in H1 Unlimited racing after taking a few years off after father Kim Gregory passed away.
Kathy Powell, event director for the Tri-City Water Follies, also said it looks like the U-17 Red Dot team will be testing in the Tri-Cities on Junes 23.
The Lamb Weston Columbia Cup will be held July 27-29.
