Rider’s Meeting - Is scheduled for 8:00 am Saturday morning at the DSM semi-trailer on the beach road behind the hot pits. It is mandatory that you attend, there will be a roll call.
Parade Lap - After the rider’s meeting a lap of the course is scheduled for 9:00 am. This is optional. Any boat/rider wishing to go will follow the course marshal boat (flagged) around the course at about 25 mph. You must stay behind this boat, and again, remember, you must merge and operate at all times with civilian traffic on the lake.
Starting Procedure - The starting lineup will be in order of when the entry was received by DSM, starting from the east side of the beach and running to the west. The first entry processed will have the pole position, second entry to the west, etc. A member of each boat’s team (must be arm-banded, as must the rider) will hold the boat, engine off, and the riders will line up abreast, about fifty feet behind the boats, showing their safety lanyards. At the starter’s gun and flag the riders will run to their boats, start them and launch onto the race course being careful to avoid race traffic and observing all civilian traffic.
Race Completion - The race will be deemed completed when the first boat has completed 30 laps. A shotgun will be fired and the checkered flag will be waived.
Awards Dinner - The dinner will be in the Relics & Rods Hall at the Lake Havasu Aquatic Center. Each arm banded, paid rider of record will receive one complimentary pass to the dinner. Other tickets for the dinner must be purchased for $25 per person in advance, or at the door prior to the ceremony. Only such ticketed/arm banded people will be allowed into the hall. The on-site payments must be made by cash or check only, no credit cards. Typically no host bar opens at 6:30, dinner buffet service 7:00 and awards begin 8:00.
Parking/Pit & Equipment note - You may not bring any vehicles larger than a pick up and a flat trailer into the main park at Crazy Horse. No exceptions, do not ask.
