Post BOPMPBC 2 Lap Sprint and Oval Race Day Regatta.
on: June 13, 2018, 15:46

Hi All,
The BOPMPBC is hosting a day of 2 Lap Sprints at our venue, Thunder Valley, 11th August 2018. It is the only surveyed and sanctioned course in NZ where you can currently come to attempt and gather 2 Lap Sprint records.
The course has just been survey checked and is within millimeters of being perfect !
We are also working hard on installing the electronic / laser timing technology for this event as kindly and generously provided by Carl Hansen.

Just to dangle even more of a carrot, and working in with the Lakes Club who ran a very successful Oval race day at Mangakino, then we are also offering a similar day of fun oval racing the day after on Sunday 12th August to make it a double header for the weekend.

Don't worry if the forecast is for wet weather, we now have a roof over the drivers stand and tents for the hotpits !

You can enter one event or the other or both, its an "enter what you have" arrangement, and the oval racing classes will be made up to suit entries.

The entry form is loaded to the NZ calendar and available via:

Hope to see lots of you here to continue the fun and friendship our great hobby / sport offers us...

Best regs, Steve T.

Hi All
Just putting this back up in front. We are working on having the electronic timing set up for some testing this weekend, so get your entries in, get boats sorted and come and have a crack at a few records and a race day on the Sunday at a fantastic model boat racing venue.
