    Default TWAK Regatta UPDATE !!

    UP DATE !!! OK dates are set still JULY 26 27 28. I talked to 429 yesterday and they are booked up on cabins. They dont have any RV spots on the water. They have a few left threw out the park area. If you want to camp on the hill run generator its 15.00 a night. "IMPORTANT PART" PLease try to pass the word on to anyone you know coming to please try to make drivers meeting SAT morning at 10:30am. If you are staying in hotel or at sunset please do your best to be there. 429 is going to give all drivers and family members a wrist band so you can come and go the hole weekend and at night so they will know you are with the BOAT group. FAMILY members meaning wife, son, doughter, husband. NOT cousin, aunt, uncle so on yall get the idea. Anyone else wanting to come watch it will cost them $10.00 a person at the gate. That wrist band will also allow you to get into 429 at night to see the live concerts if you are staying somewhere other than 429. I talked to Sunset Resort also as of today they have plenty of RV spots and only one cabin left its cabin #8 it sleep 4 to 5 peaple. As far as boat ramps it will be like the first year will have to use public ramp off hwy751 due to water being to low to use 429 ramp. There are two ramps to choose from one is free its across from sunset resort other one is at other end of bridge Marina Del Ray its 4.00 to launch. Any other ? contact ME or BOBBY. Looking FWD to it.

    Default Latest UPDATE ! Twakoni Hot Boat Regatta

    OK -JULY 26, 27, & 28 is getting closer...real fast for the 3rd Annual Tawakoni Hot Boat Regatta. Cabins at 429 RV Marina are all reserved. They have a few RV spots left in the park but none on the water-unless someone cancels. If you want to camp on the hill, it is $15.00 a night and you can run a generator. The hill has no hook ups.

    "IMPORTANT PART"
    Please pass the word to any and all boat drivers that you know who are coming to please try to make the drivers meeting. It is Saturday morning at 10:30am . If you are staying in a hotel or at Sunset please do your best to be there also. At that time 429 RV Marina will be giving all drivers and family members a wrist band so you can come and go (in and out of the park) the whole weekend. (DEFINITION-family members means wife, son, daughter, or husband. NOT cousins, aunts, and uncles and so on- y’all get the idea.) This will let the 429 RV Marina know you are with the Regatta Boat group. Anyone else wanting to enjoy the Regatta’s atmosphere will be charged $10.00 a PERSON at the gate, and they will get a wrist band. That wrist band will also allow them to get into 429 RV Marina at night to see the live concerts, friends, or other fun they desire - even if you are staying somewhere other than 429 RV Marina.

    Friday night there is a concert. It will be from 8 to 11pm. The name of the band is EAST OF AZLE.

    Sunset Resort cabins are also pretty well booked. Sunset Resort has a few RV hook ups left. If you are looking to stay in a hotel Greenville or Terrell are the closest towns. If you are staying at 429 or Sunset they wanted me to remind everyone that all Cabins and RV spots must me paid in full 10 days prior to event.
    "BOAT Ramps"
    As far as boat ramps it will be like the first year. YES we will have a nice Beach area (not sure about the BBQ sandwich girl!). Do to the water being low, there are 2 ramps you
    can use. One ramp is off HWY 751 across from Sunset Resort.This ramp is a
    free launch. The other one is at the north end of the bridge at Marina Del Ray. The fee is $5.00 to launch from Del Ray.
    Shopping for last minute needs???- there is a Walmart, and Brookshires as well as a few restaurants located in Quinlan. For the needy there is also an Orielly's Auto Part and Auto Zone.
    If you have any questions give me (Jasson) or Bobby a shout or PM. We cover several of the boat sites/forums that discuss this topic. Looking forward to it all!!

    Thanks,
    Jasson

    Shawn I hope you are able to make it. Marina Del Ray is very easy to see public boat ramp on one end of bridge Marina Del Ray on other end of bridge its very self explanatory once you get to area.

    Here is a link to a google map I made for Lake Tawakoni a couple of years ago. I updated it for the 2013 regatta. It has pins in the important places including Marina Del Ray.

    It is hard to say where the best place to launch will be. It depends on the ramp traffic. The two ramps marked on the map are the closest to 429 Marina. Both ramps are about the same IMO. The actual ramp at Marina Del Ray is a little better but it is a very tight area once on the water and can be a little stressful to navigate. The closest hotels are going to be in Greenville or Terrell. It is about the same distance to a hotel in either town. It just kinda depends on which direction you are coming from as to which is more convenient.

    OK have to make one correction its not called Marin Del Ray anymore its called GOODY'S can't miss it. I think Goody's is best place to launch. If anyone coming has small fuel tanks and don't want to burn fuel from ramp to 429 beach find me I will get you towed or tow you myself to 429 area. Also talked to Game Warden he said anyone with out registration on boat needs to get it if can't get it let me know or pm your # and I will call and give you his cell number so y'all can work something out about it. That's what he asked me to do. Last yr he let it slide cause we could use 429 ramp but being we are going across lake he said he can't. Let me know if anyone see a prob or knows of one. Other than that he is easy going just all about safety. Thxs looking fwd to it

    What a great time at the lake. Awesome event. Tons of performance boats. The weather was perfect. Great group of people. Good to see some old friends and to meet a couple new ones as well. Kinda sucked having to clean all the oil off my boat, trailer, swimsuit and truck seat from someone draining their oil filled bilge into the lake at the ramp. It was a nice added touch when his girlfriend flipped us off as they passed us on their way out. Other than that it was a perfect day at the lake.
