  2. Omaha Boat Drags

    The schedule has changed. We talked it over and decided to have the zoo tour on Friday instead of the day at the river. This will allow guys to keep their boats clean for the boat show Friday night. So the Schedule is, Friday 1:00 is the Henry Doorly Zoo tour. This is a great zoo to visit. Bring your walking shoes! 6:00 is the Boat show at Quaker Steak and Lube. Great wings! They claim to be the hotest you will ever eat! Saturday 9:00 is sign in 11:00 is the drivers meeting. We will do a run down of the rules and regulations. 12:00 the races begin. After the races are finished we will have radar runs. Saturday evening we will going out for dinner and drinks. We haven't decided where that will be yet. Sunday morning we will go to the Missouri river for a day of boating. We understand some people wont be able to make it do to their drive home. However if you can make it even for part of the day, it is going to be a great time.

  4. UMPBA boat drags

    Cant wait!!! It's like three events in one. River fun on Friday, boat show Friday night, and of course the BOAT DRAGS Saturday. I'm not sure if but I think they are doing something on Sunday also. Should be a great event if it is anything like UMPBA's events that are held in Minnesota. I will be making it up there again this year also.
