A group of Long Island Powerboating enthusiasts consisting of Bill Carroll, Chris Ryder, Joe Cibellis, Bill Betz, Joe Sgro and Jeff Cropper, are bringing a great event to the South Shore of Long Island. The event is being co-produced by Billy Frenz and the National Power Boat Association.
Set for Sat, May17th, 2014 the “Stampede” headquarters will be Bracco’s of Freeport. A pre event party will be held Friday night pre-event party displaying some of the boats and event sponsors. The organizers have set up a two classes of boat entries.
Class 1: Boats 28 feet or larger. Class 1 boats must take the above ocean route.
Class 2: 27 feet and smaller. Class 2 boats have the option of the secondary bay side run.
The entry fee is $350 for Class 1 and $200 for Class 2. The organizers are requesting everyone to sign up as soon as possible so they can plan and prepare. Bill Carroll told us he really believes they will have a strong contingent of local boaters who are excited to participate in an event like this. There is a large group of powerboaters in the area and they have never done an event like this. No doubt there will be a strong group of boats given who the committee members are.
