by John Morris EAST TAWAS - An effort is underway to bring offshore powerboat racing to Tawas Bay next summer.
Brian Bishop, a local businessman, told the East Tawas City Council at its meeting Monday he and three other persons are working with a offshore powerboat racing association which holds two other events in Michigan.
“They’re looking for a third event for the Great Lakes to hold a triple crown challenge,” Bishop said.
He said the group has been holding offshore powerboat racing the past 17 years in the St. Clair Shores area and last year held it for the first time along Port Huron. Bishop added the event has been popular and successful in both communities.
