HINTON - The waters of Bluestone Lake may be calm now, but come May 31 they will be alive with the roar of more than 100 power boat engines reaching top speeds.
Hinton was chosen as the host city for this year's American Power Boat Association's Junior Nationals. Junior racers range from ages 9 to 16 and come from 14 different states.
Race director Chris Johnson said the lake was selected because the tall mountains make for smooth, fast waters.
Spectators have the option of parking in the overlook and enjoying a birds-eye view of the races, or they can watch in the pits.
