Well this is the long overdue second press release. I must say that this is going to be a great year, and we are having a great response from riders all over the southeast. I have talked with riders coming from the following states: Florida, Georgia, Tennessee, Kentucky, Indiana, Alabama, Mississippi, Arkansas, Texas, and of course the great state of Louisiana. As we are getting things together I wanted to go ahead and let everyone know the schedule of events at their current status (schedule is subject to change):
Thursday - Arrive in the beautiful metropolis of Monroe, LA
Ride if there is time and hang out at the marina until??
Thursday night meet and greet at Monroe’s Top Gun Night Club
no cover and awesome drink specials
club closes at 2am so you are welcome to stay and enjoy the company of other riders and locals until that time. Top Gun will have drink specials for us that night. 18 years old and up to enter.
Friday - Wake up get some breakfast and head to the water
Hyperlite sales rep Jeremy Baker will be on hand for on-water demos from 10 am till 4 pm. Jeremy will have his brand new 2005 X-star and Mr. 009 himself Matt Sims in tow in order to give the riders in the demo the greatest equipment and boat available. You may know Matt for his recent presence in the video Downside Up. If you would like to reserve a spot on the list for the demo day please contact Clark Dudley at email@example.com or 901-202-7229.
For everyone else it will be a day to free ride and enjoy all of the smooth water that the Ouachita has to offer. If you have room on your boat for extra riders or would like to participate in spring fling and can’t bring a boat I encourage you to post that info under this press release so that people will be able to meet and ride.
As the day draws to a close we will gather around the marina to hang out and meet other riders and share stories about previous years.
Friday night we will be having a wakeboarding video party at the Library Lounge starting roughly around 9:30. The Lounge has pool tables, dart boards, and it will also be $2.00 shot night with no cover. 18 years old up to enter.
If you feel you are in the mood to do a little dance and make a little noise we will return to Top Gun for those type of activities after the video viewing. There will be a $5.00 cover at Top Gun.
Saturday - Wake up and hit the water for a morning and early afternoon of free riding
There will be activity around the marina all day long every day but Saturday is special in that we will have Double up contest. This contest has occurred in the past but we starting a little later this year so every one gets in some riding beforehand. The contest will start at 3:30 with the amateur division (15 years and younger). It will be limited to 10 riders and a $20 entry fee, winner takes all. Following that up will be the open division that will be limited to 25 riders and the $30 entry fee will be shared between the biggest air and the most technical trick.
Any insurance money needed to cover the contest will be taken out of the pot before the prizes are awarded.
If you would like to pre-register for the event to ensure that you will have a spot in the contest contact Clark Dudley at firstname.lastname@example.org or 901-202-7229.
After the contest well will all continue to hang out at the marina until???
Saturday night we will return to Top Gun for the Luau that they are throwing in our honor starting at 9:30 and continuing until 2am.
Sunday - One last ride
Wake up all the sleepy heads to check out of the hotel and try to squeeze on last ride in before every one heads home.
In years past most people have stayed in the Holiday Inn Holidome or the La Quinta right next door. This year unfortunately there is a soccer tournament in town the same weekend so I was unable to reserve a block of rooms but there are rooms available in both hotels. I recommend using Hotels.com to locate a room; I have found that this is the best way to get the cheapest rooms. If you cannot find a room at either of those locations any hotel on or close to Hwy 165 will be convenient to the site and to the nighttime activities.
More Hotel Info:
La Quinta Inn Monroe
1035 Us 165 Bypass South
Monroe LA 71203
Red Roof Inn West Monroe
102 Constitution Dr
West Monroe LA 71292
1051 MLK J
Monroe, LA 71203
Camping is available at the marina it will be $10 a night for a tent and $20 dollars a night for a Camper/RV. There is only one power pole so it is a first come, first serve basis for the RV’s. There is no water or drainage hook ups but there is a place to dump on the way out of the marina. If you are interested in camping please contact Clark Dudley at email@example.com or 901-202-7229.
We are still taking sponsors so if you or your company would like to participate please contact Clark Dudley or 901-202-7229.
