The NIDBA is coordinating and promoting this Show-n-Shine Event at Blarney Island this Saturday from 2 PM to 6 PM. This is a chance for race boat owners and hot boaters of all types to launch and run their boat out to the Island and to drive it around on Grass lake and Nippersink Lake, on a non-race night!
We are inviting all Race Boat and Hot Boat owners to pay a $25 Event Registration fee, which gets them:
- An NIDBA Associate Membership
- Permission from the IDNR, Lake County Sherriff and Fox Waterway Ageny to operate thier otherwise unregistered and/or illegal vessel on Nippersink and Grass Lake, during the event hours of 2-6PM
- Premier parking in the race pit horseshoe at the Island (as available; the pit area will be flagged-off)
Additional wristbands are available to each registrant for $5.00 each. This will get each of their associates to the Island on the Blarney Island barge for free, and other special promotions which we cannot mention in print. Participants will sign-up at the Port-of-Blarney Parking lot (right/west side). In addition to their NIDBA Membership Form, Participants will sign an NIDBA Event-Liability-Waiver, to show their awareness that this is not a sanctioned boat racing event, and that they should not be involved in unauthorized boat racing activity.
The NIDBA is late in getting this event publicized. We need your help and we need it fast!
Will you please help us by sending the attached flier 9and this note to 5-10 other boaters that you know, and by coming out to show us your support? (Non-boating participation/spectating is free!)
Thank you in advance...
The NIDBA Executive Race Committee
PS: Please tell us if you will be bringing a boat out to participate, via the Website: http://www.NIDBA.net
The turnout wasnt that great. Weather and short notice killed it. I smoked my fuel pump before I even made it out of the channel...lol Still got out there and had a great time though! We have another event coming up Aug. 1st. It would be awesome if you guys could make it out!
