Thumbs up Re: Camden NJ Races?

Welcome to the 2005 AMF Offshore
- Dash for Cash -
Hosted by Camden, NJ

Hello Race Fans,

There aren’t many new things on the Offshore Racing scene these days so when something or someone completely out of the ordinary pops up, ya just have to stand up and take notice.

The OPA race in Camden NJ is scheduled for October 8th and 9th, and until yesterday, it had no purse and was in jeopardy of possible cancellation. Enter John Haggin and AMF Offshore Racing. This is John’s first year on the offshore circuit and he has already made a lasting impression on all the racers, especially the Performance Class racers. Haggin (as he prefers to be called) has taken it upon himself to become the champion of the P Class racers, the little guys that needs some help from time to time just getting to the next race. Haggin and OPA have really shown their generosity this time and all they ask for in return is that you join them in Camden, have some fun and enjoy a great race.

So here’s the deal:

NO REGISTRATION FEES
NO EQUIPMENT FEES
NO ENTRY FEES
A $26,000 PURSE
1st Place - $2500
2nd Place - $1250
3rd Place - $750
4th Place - $500
5th Place - $200

TROPHIES LIKE YOU’VE NEVER SEEN BEFORE – JERSEY BOYZ STYLE
(Winners will need to present a firearms permit to take the trophies out of the state)

DO WE HAVE YOUR ATTENTION YET?

To attend the race, just get to the intersection of Martin Luther King Blvd and Jersey Joe Walcott Blvd and then park in the Battleship NJ Parking lot. The Wiggins Park Marina is at the entrance to the Battleship New Jersey. Everything is very conveniently located at this race site.

If you are coming from out of town, we recommend staying at either:

Days Inn
525 Rt. 38 East
Cherry Hill, NJ 08002
856-663-0100

Or

Hilton Hotel
RT 70 and West Marlton Pike,
Cherry Hill, NJ 08002
Tel: 1-856-665-6666

Schedule of events

The north end of the course will be in front of the RCA pier and the south end will be near the U.S.S. United States. Spectator boats will be escorted into designated areas along the Philadelphia side of the racecourse.

Get a good seat early at the Camden Waterfront or watch from the Battleship NJ. Martin Sanborn will broadcast the entire race live over the Internet on talkoffshore.com. A public address system will keep spectators informed and entertained. The online radio station can be found at www.talkoffshore.com.

By noon the racecourse will be established and made secure. All traffic will be blocked from entering the racecourse by State Police and Coast Guard and appointed volunteer boats. At 12:45 the Performance Class 5 and 4 boats will leave Wiggins Marina and head south to the south end of the racecourse where they will await a flying start at 1pm. For about one hour the boats will tear up the 4.5-mile oval course. After their race is over, the P3, P2 and P1 boats will take to the racecourse for a second race. This race will end at about 4pm.

After the races are over, everyone is invited to join OPA for the Awards ceremony where the Champions will be crowned in all classes.
