Location: Camp Far West, Lincoln CA - 1/4 Mile Cove

I just got off the phone with Bob Richards...
If you'd like to participate this year it will be a little different...
The boats will only need to be there the one day (afternoon - evening), Friday or Saturday. They won't be there for three days like the last deal.

We will be having a Show-n-Shine either Friday or Saturday night...
It's open to Jets or V-Drives!

The entry fee for the Show-n-Shine will be your ticket price... $25
You can purchase tickets online here... (https://tix.extremetix.com/Online/?siteID=3516) or at your local Riebes Auto Parts Store...

There will be a "Best Of Show" prize! At least $100 maybe more...

Make sure to let me know if you're interested because we're only taking TEN entries!!!

Let me clarify something... The boats will only need to be there the one day (afternoon - evening), Friday or Saturday. They won't be there for three days like the last deal.

So if you've got a Hot Rod boat and are coming out to the races anyway and want a shot at the $100 prize, let me know... Cool? :biggrin:

Wondering if I should have waited to buy a mooring pass at the log boom for BWW. Looks like the only advantage now, is to be able to listen to the bands, sitting in the cove, on My Boat, after the days "Official Races" have ended. We are grabbing a campsite for the weekend as well. That way, at least we will have launch privileges, a place to crash (nap) and already be on the South Side of the lake. To catch the daily events! :biggrin:

Welcome to VJB Water Dog! I'm pretty sure there are at least 3 spots still open, for the show-n-shine best of show! I'll talk with David and find out, or you can send him a private message for all the details,

So far the only taker has been Scott with his dad's Daytona... If we can't get 10 pretty boats it won't happen...

David gave me his camera to take a few pictures, so I did, like over 500! :biggrin: But I couldn't go home without a few of my own! When we arrived, Scott and Tammy had secured an Awesome Shoreline Campsite. They were setup before most of the racers arrived. We got there Thursday, about 3pm, and setup Davids Nationwide booth for him.

Thanks Scott, Tammy, and Don, for getting such an awesome campsite, and saving one for us! I spotted Scotts motorhome from the vendor area after setting up Davids EZUP.

Our spot was right behind Scott's.

There was entertainment all 3 days as well. So Deb and I set out to Cut a Rug to an 80's tribute band called Superlicious! We had a blast.

No better way to finish it off, then be blasting down a strip of water, with a tall tail,
