    OPA Racing is ready to launch the Heritage Coast Offshore Grand Prix in East Tawas, MI

    FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE 05/09/2012

    OPA left no stone unturned in the attempt to have an offshore race in New Jersey. Unfortunately, even with all the efforts, we were unable to have a race produced in the state of New Jersey for the 2012 season, have no fear, we have plans.

    The city of East Tawas, MI has opened their doors and is welcoming us into their town for the 1st Heritage Coast Offshore Grand Prix on June 22 - 24, 2012. All is a go, we have the Green Light from both the Town Council & Coast Guard.

    Now your next question might be, Where is East Tawas?

    Webster’s definition of community is “a unified body of individuals.”

    East Tawas is a small, close-knit community with people who really take pride in our city. From our residential areas to our business district, the care given to each other, our visitors, and our properties is a reflection of the level of pride taken by so many people in our city.

    Part of our pride comes from past generations. We are fortunate to have many people who have been able to work and retire here after graduating from Tawas Area High School. We continue to build on what our parents and grandparents and generations before those were able to accomplish. It is the collective efforts of all these generations that have made East Tawas the outstanding community it is today.

    One of the frequent comments we hear from visitors is how friendly our people are. If you’re walking down the street and pass someone, you’re very likely to get a sincere “hello”… with eye contact! The same holds true for our businesses, whose employees and owners exemplify friendliness and make your shopping experience enjoyable.

    We are a community that looks out for each other. Our neighbors know and talk to each other. They help each other when one is in need.

    We are a community with many volunteers. From the various festivals held throughout the year, to planting flowers in city landscaped plots, to serving on various City boards, commissions and authorities, to the volunteer fire department, we are a community where people will step forward to offer a hand and make us a better community.

    We are proud.... We are community.... We are East Tawas!

That's like the 20th time he's gone by today?"

    Default Rat spotted on the Bay...

    The Wood group was eating dinner at the East Tawas Bay Resort when Lynn was spotted sunning himself at the state dock. Tried contacting you but the mail box was full. Will be following and supporting Ed Smith in his Cleveland Construction Cat #129. Look forward to the races. Sincerely Got Wood
