This will be a full points race for OSS including a $50,000 prize purse. Can't wait, never been to Havasu before. Hope they let Yankees in.

I hear it's a fun place....

And Extreme Boats Magazine will be covering all three events.

How come there's not any info on the OSS website for events other than Biloxi?
Click on "more information" and they are blank.
Figure they would have some kind of idea what's going on for the year.

Havasu is a POPRA event that OSS is invited to attend. We only secured the sponsor a few days ago so we don't have all the details yet. Please visit www.pacificoffshore.com for details.
