I'm staying @ Loews Lake Las Vegas Resort,
Friday & Saturday night.

What is happening on Friday?

I have concerns about distances to the card stops for the poker run.

Let's hear from some of you Hallett Regatta veterans please.:D

Last regatta, there were only 2 card stops , one to the left, right after the narrows and another just west of Temple Bar ..no real start time and all day to make the 2 stops .I'm not going this year . I'm worried about launching ...the party at night at the park in Boulder is great ! In n out and all the ice cream you can eat and a lot of prizes to boot !

We never did the poker run for the same reason. I don't think we would have made it between gas stops. Plus, we didn't want to be way up at the north end if the wind or a storm kicked up. They designed the poker run for the big boats.

Thanks Angie
Exactly my concerns.
44 gallons in an 18 1/2 foot Mini Cruiser.
Maybe I can coerce someone to pick up my cards for me.;)

Do you think henderson is too far away to stay in?

That's interesting about the gas situation. Can't you get gas on the water?

Henderson is only 10-25 minutes away depending on where you stay in henderson, there are a lot of small hotels in boulder and much safer for your toys...

When is the regatta?

Only 2 stops, and they're easy runs. One is at swallow bay, right next to caulville marina. the second is at middle point, around 25 miles from caulville bay, through the narrows. Gas is available at caulville, las vegas bay, echo bay and temple bar.

No rush to be anywhere. Take all day to hit both stops, stop and swim, one of the stops will have hot dogs and water for the participants.

Henderson is around 10 miles from the lake, but Hallett has a great deal at the Lowe's hotel at Lake Las Vegas. Check their web site.

Party in the park is always fun. Lots of free giveaways. It's a great way to spend Fathers day.... on the water during the day and in the park on Saturday night.

Is Hallett for sale? I drove by their shop last week and noticed that all of the old man's buildings are for sale. I also heard that he is ill.

Hallett Boats, the business, is not for sale at this time, however the property and buildings at the Rivergrade factory are (sale or lease). If and when the real estate sells, Hallett will move to a new, most likely smaller, location in Irwindale. When that occurs, Nick plans to turn the day-to-day operations over to his long-time vice president Jim Frisbee and son Jerry Barron. And yes, Nick had some serious health issues to deal with last year, but has made a remarkable recovery. At the moment, no plans for an official Hallett Regatta at this time.

Thank you for this information. I wish Nick the best.
