    Default Fire On The River 2015 - Cedar Rapids, Iowa Saturday, September 12!

    The 3rd Annual Fire On The River boat drags are coming up Saturday, September 12th on the banks of the Cedar River at Ellis Harbor, sponsored by the Cedar Boat Club! Last year we had 30 boats entered, up from 18 the first year. We are hoping for even more this year as we continue to refine the event and make it more competitive for races and fun for the spectators. Races start at 1pm, test/tune/practice before starting approximately 10am depending on how long it takes to set up the course. This is a 1/4 mile bracket-style, hand-drop start. There will be food vendors on site, and following the races there will be a band, lighted boat parade, one of the best local fireworks displays and lots of parties in the harbor! Attached is a flyer and below is a link to the racer's info, forms, rules, etc. Please message or email me ([email protected]) with any questions, comments, suggestions. Hope to see lots of fast boat there

    Default Hotel info for those travelling

    We have a discounted rate available for the nights of 9/11-9/12 for anyone wanting to stay overnight and not worry about travelling. This hotel is one of the finest in the city and is the closest to the event, just downriver from the race course with plenty of parking for boat trailers. The boat club even has a public dock about a block from the hotel if you want to shuttle people to-from the event and hotel.

    The rate is $89.99/night if you book your reservation before Friday, Sept 4th. After that the regular rate is $114.99/night. This hotel has a nice pool, lounge and restaurant, and is within walking distance of a few other area bars serving food and live entertainment, if that's your thing.
