The 14th Ever Outhouse Classic in Trenary, Michigan
     We went to the 2007 Outhouse Classic, which was held on February 24, 2007 and had a great time once again. The weather cooperated the Friday before and again on Saturday during the race. We took video again of the race and it turned out pretty good after all the edited clips fell on the floor. The finished project is really funny.

All of our Outhouse Racing DVD Videos are available for sale in our on line store. To go directly to the Outhouse Racing Video department in our store, Click on the link below:



     One bad thing that happened on the way to the races was that I lost my cell phone. Here are some tips that will help you out if you lose your cell phone. Always set your phone to go into Lock state when it is powered on so that you have to enter a password after powering it up. Try calling the phone to see if someone answers it. In my case, the phone was set to vibrate so no one could hear it.
     Always carry an 800 number for your cell phone carrier in your purse or wallet. If you don't have your phone, you'll need it. Also, find out ahead of time the toll free number of your carrier to retrieve Voice Mail if you are out of your home area. The person with me had his cell phone but his shortcuts like *86 to get Voice Mail did not work. You needed a different method to get voice mail when out of your area. Retrace your steps in your mind and try to remember the last time you either used the phone that day or the last time you felt it in your case, etc. If you stopped to eat or get gas, remember where it was and what the name of the place was. Try to contact someone from home who can call information or use the Internet to find the phone numbers of those places. Ask them to make some calls to see if the phone was found. Hopefully, someone honest will find it and turn it in. Also have an entry in your phone book on the phone called ICE. Law enforcement and people who know will look for entries beginning with ICE and call them. ICE stands for "In Case of Emergency". This is EXTREMELY important. Do it now on your cell phone. Put separate entries in there all beginning with ICE for home, your spouse, your in-laws, someone who cares about you. It could save your life! The lost phone turned up at a restaurant that we ate lunch at on Friday so on Sunday afternoon, we stopped and picked it up. I hope it never happens to you but if it does, you now have some handy tips on how to recover it.
     We took video of the race and created a DVD Video of the race that is almost an hour long. This year's video is the best ever! It also has a slide show at the end that has every picture of the racers so it is a nice bonus feature. The DVD is a nice documentary of this year's race. It contains interviews, fun things and it is available here for $9.99 plus $3.00 shipping. We are donating a portion of every sale to an organization in the Trenary, Michigan area to help needy families. Last year's sales resulted in a donation to the Methias Fire Department in Trenary.

     There are many, many more pictures available to view than what are shown below. We have pictures of every Outhouse that was raced and all the racers. We also have pictures of the award ceremony and everyone getting their awards. In addition, we have a lot more interesting people shots that you will enjoy looking at.
