• REGISTER ONLINE AT www.mapacharity.org and save money and time! PAYPAL available.

We have more up our sleeves, but they're not locked in yet. We are all committed to bring you the biggest and best event. We WILL out do ourselves from last year - and from the comments we got; everyone thought last years event was the best PR event they have ever attended.
Just wait till this year!




Please visit - www.mapacharity.org
The website will have all info / forms / registration and everything you'll need to know about the event. There will be downloadable registration forms, hotel info, ramp & directions info, charts and co-ordinates of each stop, a chart of the region and course - in other words, the website will have ALL the info you need and will be updated as details emerge.

Be good idea to visit our Facebook page and/or group page to chat with others and get the latest scoop and rumors of what we have up our sleeve this year. https://www.facebook.com/Powerboatingforacurepr

Questions and updated information also will be answered on this thread - or you can email us at: [email protected]

Last year we filled up the hotel rooms early - so this year we have a bigger allotment! Get registered soon while they are available. (more info coming)

This years event will be bigger and better than before. The fun and planned events on Friday promise to be as exciting as the Saturday events. Just get the date locked in on your calendar!!
Again, more info will be forthcoming as the details are ironed out.

Warm weather, incredible boats, bikini's, parties - can't wait. See ya'll soon

We would like to participate this year. We live in Hampton and just pruchased a 33 Scarab AVS last Aug. Didn't get to use it much last year and can hardly wait to get it in the water this year.

We would be staying on the boat.
