Default 2011 APBA Greenwood Lake Spring Nationals

May 14th and 15th the Lake Hopatcong Racing Association will be hosting the Spring Nationals right here on Greenwood Lake NJ. After a 12 years reprieve thunder on the water will be back once again to crown a champion on a one mile race course on the south end of the lake. We have been working very hard with the racers, Lake Hopatcong Racing Association and the APBA to bring this once famous event back to our local lake. But we need HELP....With such short notice it has been very hard to find sponsorships for this event. Its all in place and money has been sent out but if we cant recover costs then there will be no next year....We need local or distant companies to sponsor a race boat. If you can help out please PM me and Ill get you info. Sponsorship is $400.00 and that gets your company name on a boat and that boat becomes known for the whole weekend as its sponsor. The P.A. announcer will use your name during all heat races and the final shootout. To me that sounds like some great publicity for little money and its a great cause. Also just by attending to watch will help greatly. We will have food and beer vendors on site as well as a great spectators views of the race. So please come out and have a great time and help us keep this sport ALIVE..

Finalized the agreement this afternoon and look forward to two great days of racing !!!

Anyone that can make it to spectate and support this event will certainly help a great deal to see this become an Annual Event as it was in the past.

Could even be a great time for an OSO Spring Get Together !!!

i have been waiting for this race to return to the lake for years! Stomper will be out there with our regular crew of performance boats watching the races. we are all locals to the lake and if the crew needs any assistance with anything, please do not hesitate to ask. i run a business locally in hewitt, nj and live across the street from the lake in NY. I am willing to assist with anything to make this race a regular stop again.

Came across the Facebook pages for the event the other day in case anyone is interested:

Page One

Page Two

The first is an open "fan page" and the second requires the creator of the page to add you to the list to view it.

Should be a good time, I plan on being there both days and if anyone needs any info from a local feel free to PM me.

I have a quaint little B&B right down the road from here and I could squeeze a boat or two in the yard if anyone needs a place to lay up. Also, the lady who owns the marina down the street (almost right across from the B&B) will rent you a slip for the night if I ask her but its a small place and I'd say a 22 or 23 footer is the max.
