Regatta President Dan Cole accepts a $50,000 title sponsorship check from Midwest Tube Mills CEO Rick Russell and employees of Midwest Tube Mills at the press conference

The annual “Champion’s Gala” will include the presentation of the H1 Unlimited Hydroplane Series national championship trophy, the Gar Wood Award, the President’s Cup, Gold Cup and much more. The event marks the first time it will be held in the Tri-Cities, Washington area since the sport’s inaugural awards presentation in 1964. More information about the evening, the banquet, and tickets can now be purchased at or at the Tri-City Water Follies office located at 621 North Gum, Suite A, Kennewick, Washington during regular business hours.

President Dan Cole said Russell and Midwest Tube Mills are exactly the type of partners the Regatta needs. He noted that the Regatta’s sponsorship roots are deeply connected to local businesses and Madison has become a corporate community so it’s great to see partners like Midwest Tube Mill step up and get involved.  “On behalf of Midwest Tube Mills and its employees, this is Midwest Tube Mill’s 25th-year anniversary and the Regatta is our big play this year,” CEO Rick Russell said at an announcement at the Michigan Road company. “We’re going to use this for talking about Midwest and promoting Midwest and it’s 25 years so we’re excited about being a part of the Regatta this year. We were a small part last year and we are really proud to be the title sponsor for this year.”
