DePue Boat 2014 AMore national champions are being crowned on this final day of the Pro National Championship Boat Races on Lake DePue. Saturday was a big day for DePue racer Paul Bosnich III, who won a national title in the 250cc Runabout. He’s trying for the 350cc Runabout title today. Besides racing, attractions include carnival rides, games and food booths. Speaking of food, there’s the DePue Men’s Club food stand. Publicity chairman Eric Bryant says the folks who run the food stand are especially proud of their double cheeseburger.  This marks the 30th consecutive year for the DePue Men’s Club sponsoring the races and Bryant says they’re very pleased.  A raffle wraps things up this evening. Admission is $3. WZOE-AM 1490 is broadcasting on-location from the DePue Boat Races again this afternoon.
