A recent suicide by a well liked and respected member of the Hydro Racing community has left many of us hurting and wondering, “What could we have done to help?” “How could someone we care about be in so much pain and we didn’t even know?” and perhaps most importantly, “Is there anyone else in our community that is feeling this way"
     In an effort to answer these questions and more, the Hydroplane Museum will host a free Mental Health Symposium:  “Out of the Darkness: Depression and Suicide in the World of Motor Sports”  Thursday March 1st at 7 pm at the Museum.

 In addition to having the Gold Cup, Presidents Cup, and the Martini & Rossi Trophies on hand, over 30 individual awards were given out in recognition of competition and contributions in 2017.
The NewsJournal will have an in-depth feature story, highlighting the evening and all the awards from the H1 Champion's Gala in the March issue.
