We are excited to host this event at the fantastic Bass Pro Shops venue in Garland Texas on Lake Ray Hubbard.

This venue has been host to several past radio sailing events and features a 300 ft dock, 13 ft wide that allows competitors to walk the course with their boats, and allows the Race Committee to set a course from nearly any wind direction.

The NCR venue is right across the bay from Windsurf Park, and features some of the best cleanest wind directions offered in North Texas!

The amenities offered at this site are second to none! Our host hotel, The Holiday Inn Express & Suites, is a brand new facility located approx 150 yds from the Race venue, where we have 20 rooms reserved , and discounted when you use the checkout code "TRY" There are also 5 Fantastic restaurants and pubs with 50 yards of this hotel including the Islamorada Fish Company, our host Restaurant and Registration Location located in Bass Pro.

Also with located just above our racing dock are Texas Land and Cattle ( Steak House) , Primos Tex-Mex (Mexican), Flying Saucer ( featuring over 100 beers on tap), and Hooters (Wings & Beer) . Also at the venue site is a Whataburger, and a convenience store.

We are also coordinating a shuttle service from both airports , and as long as there are 3 people together the shuttle will only cost $22 per person! The form for this is available online at: ONLINE SHUTTLE SERVICE REQUEST

We anticipate some great one design racing, and can't wait to see you in Dallas in October! Click the link below for a complete map to the venue!

The list keeps growing and we still have 3 months to go!

We have tried to make this a low cost affair. Everything you will need is on site including 5 restaurants with full service bars, very good looking Texas women at Hooters and The Flying Saucer to serve you.

If you fly in you can catch a shuttle for $22 (if you ride share with the limo service we have arranged ) to avoid renting a car for the weekend. Fill out the Airport Shuttle Service Request form

We also have 2 hotels , one on site ( Holiday Inn Express) and the other across the highway ( Quality Inn) that are affordable.

We have kept the entry fee down for a 3 day regatta as well only $65

We expect quite a few sponsors for the event, and some great giveaways to be announced!

Bass Pro Shops always bend over backwards to provide us with an excellent regatta experience!

Its not too late to get that DF95 youve been thinking about and entering the regatta! Don't miss out on what promises to be one of the best regattas in the USA for 2016!

Chuck,
Any chance of getting the times & body counts for the shuttles to the airports?

Would be nice to plan on not being the only one on the shuttle. My flights can be adjusted if needed.

Ive only got 4 requests so far... I am going to develop a regatta mail list and see if we can get some more interest. We are still a long ways out.... I am going to contact the limo company this week and see what they reccommend.
