NEIYA Annual Event is ON For Sat. Oct 29th

With the overnight chill in the air, it’s nearly GO FAST time. Time to make ready for ice, blades, and speed. Go FAST ice time is coming and our annual meeting and banquette are on for Saturday, October 29th. We are once again returning to Thompson Motor Speedway in Thompson CT for a third and likely last time. The Venue is near Lake Chaubunagungamaug better known as Webster lake, because none but natives can pronounce it.

So GO FAST — Dig your gear out of the basement, garage, Attic, or wherever it has been stowed. Half my program has been summering in Newport and needs to come home soon. Put your craft(s) together on the hard. Check for worn and broken parts. I always forget to replace or fix something from last season and now’s the time to do it. Have extra parts, masts, sails, blades, full program etc? Lighten your load and help someone else GO FASTer. Put them up for sale in our classified section (instructions below).

The NEIYA annual meeting has been going on for decades. Come out for the camaraderie, tales of spirited competition, and fellowship. Come out and welcome the upcoming 2023 Season. Experienced, novice or newbie all are welcome and encouraged to attend. Always about dreamed iceboating? This event is designed with you in mind. Don’t miss this GO FAST opportunity.

Come join your fellow NEIYA members and interested individuals
