Lake George OFFSHORE PERFORMANCE BOAT DEMONSTRATION "RACE"

The "unofficial" poster:




May 21st thru the 23rd, 2010

QUEEN'S GREAT BOATING WEEKEND
Lake George, NY


Sponsored by Miller Lite



OFFSHORE PERFORMANCE BOAT DEMONSTRATION "RACE"

The "Offshore Demonstration Race" will feature high performance power boats in a staged offshore powerboat race. Each heat will consist of 10 - 12 boats in a predetermined sequence around a triangular course in the southern most end of Lake George. The course lay out will maximize the ability for shoreline based spectators on Beach Road as well as from the restaurants and bars on the west side of the lake.

There will be 4 different offshore demonstration events beginning at 12:00 noon and ending at 4:00 PM. We expect between 30 and 40 boats to participate.

See website for more details:

As of this morning, Sharkey-Images will be in a HELICOPTER tomorrow for the RACE.

AERIAL PHOTOS at Lake George is always a beautiful thing !

Yes, but ALL the permits are in place this year. Mainly because its NOT a poker run, but a demo race in a contained area.

I think that everyone including the LGPC is on board. Should be a fun time and kickoff to hopefully a better summer for everyone than last.

Tim, do you have anymore shots of my 2003 Spectre from that day? I may be interested in purchasing some if you have some good ones. Thanks
