    Default Tawas Bay Offshore Race June 14-16, 2013

    Hello,


    My name is Brian Bishop and I am the event chairman for the Heritage Coast Offshore Grand Prix. I had a idea that might be popular with the fans of this event. Would you guys be interested in (1) putting on a display of your boats for the weekend and (2) possibly having a rooster tail contest or demonstration? The dates for the event next year are June 14-16, 2013.
    Look forward to hearing from you.

    I was there last year and it was a great event for the little time you all had to prepare. I will be there again next year staying in the harbor so i would pull my boat up.
    I am sure its not the biggest roster tail but it is always fun showing it off.

    I too was there for the event and will be going to it again next year. I'm game. Not much of a rooster tail, but like unstable put it, it's always fun.

    Better late than never. Hopefully we can get enough interest here. I'd like to see 25-30 boats on display from you guys. Maybe more!!

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

    Mention "Rooster Tail Contest" around Bob Davie and he'll be the first one there.

    2 houses and 6 cabins. Anyone interested would have to reserve right now as they are usually filled up the whole summer. Brian has seen one of the houses. They are nice. The cabins are a bit more rustic, but well appointed. We'd have the whole back bay to ourselves, plus the point is great. Where Mr Bishop has provided us a place for the boats is right by the boardwalk/pier to the state dock on a nice grassy spot a few feet from a sandy beach in the harbor where we can park, or the trailer queens can trailer queen. Bathhouse is right next to it too. Downtown is a few steps away.

    Jerry's Marina in Tawas Bay with Lake Huron in the background link to a pic we are on the 2 basins on the left, with the rag flapping bastards club on the far right with the coasties post. Cabins are immeadiatly left of the 1st basin.

    An aerial photo of Tawas Point showing Jerry's Marina in the forground Another shot, it's one huge clean sand bar to hang on.

    We have 90 octane corn free fuel at the marina and I can arrange to have a drum or two of the good stuff on hand.
