OK -JULY 26, 27, & 28 is getting closer...real fast for the 3rd Annual Tawakoni Hot Boat Regatta. Cabins at 429 RV Marina are all reserved. They have a few RV spots left in the park but none on the water-unless someone cancels. If you want to camp on the hill, it is $15.00 a night and you can run a generator. The hill has no hook ups.

"IMPORTANT PART"
Please pass the word to any and all boat drivers that you know who are coming to please try to make the drivers meeting. It is Saturday morning at 10:30am . If you are staying in a hotel or at Sunset please do your best to be there also. At that time 429 RV Marina will be giving all drivers and family members a wrist band so you can come and go (in and out of the park) the whole weekend. (DEFINITION-family members means wife, son, daughter, or husband. NOT cousins, aunts, and uncles and so on- y’all get the idea.) This will let the 429 RV Marina know you are with the Regatta Boat group. Anyone else wanting to enjoy the Regatta’s atmosphere will be charged $10.00 a PERSON at the gate, and they will get a wrist band. That wrist band will also allow them to get into 429 RV Marina at night to see the live concerts, friends, or other fun they desire - even if you are staying somewhere other than 429 RV Marina.

Friday night there is a concert. It will be from 8 to 11pm. The name of the band is EAST OF AZLE.

Sunset Resort cabins are also pretty well booked. Sunset Resort has a few RV hook ups left. If you are looking to stay in a hotel Greenville or Terrell are the closest towns. If you are staying at 429 or Sunset they wanted me to remind everyone that all Cabins and RV spots must me paid in full 10 days prior to event.
"BOAT Ramps"
As far as boat ramps it will be like the first year. YES we will have a nice Beach area (not sure about the BBQ sandwich girl!). Do to the water being low, there are 2 ramps you
can use. One ramp is off HWY 751 across from Sunset Resort.This ramp is a
free launch. The other one is at the north end of the bridge at Marina Del Ray. The fee is $5.00 to launch from Del Ray.
Shopping for last minute needs???- there is a Walmart, and Brookshires as well as a few restaurants located in Quinlan. For the needy there is also an Orielly's Auto Part and Auto Zone.
If you have any questions give me (Jasson) or Bobby a shout or PM. We cover several of the boat sites/forums that discuss this topic. Looking forward to it all!!

Thanks,
Jasson

Awesome. Look forward to meeting you in person. I will be in the multi color 21' Daytona that looks like it is straight out of the 80s TV series Miami Vice.

LOL. I was kinda thinking the same thing. Man I should have taken some pics. I knew I was going to spend the entire day gabbing so I didn't even take a camera. I did see a lot of pics being taken. I am sure some will surface.

Not sure if this will work but there is a pretty good collection of pics in this facebook album from the weekend. I see a few far away shots of WHDs piece but nothing close enough to really appreciate the quality of his restoration. Still worth a look. Lots of good pics.

I just looked to see if I even took a pic myself. I know I have one of the dual turbo job out there but I think other than panning the beach I don't have squat neither! I don't possess a full water view of my own boat !! Ill have to fix that this weekend I guess! Had a good time Matt glad to meet you!
