Raising Dementia Awareness with KalendarKards

Many of you know me as UHR Dave. I’ve been involved with bringing you conversation and provocative thinking around the sport of Unlimited Hydroplane Racing for quite some time.

Getting the crew back from Doha was an over 24 hour ordeal.  Now that they are back in the U.S., more information is known about the final heat.  First, I now know about the missing video files and consistent with past practices, providing more details. Due to what appears to be frequent and severe impacts on bandwidth during the final heat, the files became corrupted.  As indicated many times, without increasing the cost of infrastructure many times over to “guarantee” adequate bandwidth, we are at the mercy of minute by minute changes in conditions.

Anyone who watched the Oryx Cup UIM World Championship knows the challenges we faced bringing you the live streaming. First, an apology for how long it has taken to provide this update. With the crew preparing for, then starting the return trip home, it has been difficult to get answers for you. They are due back in the U.S. late this afternoon.
