Boat Racing on Lake Dallas

A gentleman whose family goes back several generations in Denton County came by recently wanting any articles on the Denton Boat Club and/or racing on Garza Reservoir/Lake Dallas. I was able to find quite a few in the Denton Record-Chronicle through Newspaper Archives (available only at one of our three library branches). Apparently boat racing was a thing back in the ’30s and ’40s and I was able to find ads for the ‘Hundley Boat Co’ owned by the gentleman’s father and also the origin of Hundley Road near the town of Lake Dallas. Here’s their website with some nice historical photos.
