Harbor Beach or Rochester... Which will you attend?Harbor Beach to Celebrate 10 Years of PWC Racing 11/15/09 - The American Power Boat Association (APBA) is excited to announce that Harbor Beach, Michigan will be celebrating its 10 year anniversary as host of a PWC racing event and once again Harbor Beach will play host to an APBA National Tour event. The 2010 event will take place on July 9, 10, and 11 in the Harbor next to Trescott Street Pier on Lake Huron
UWP date set for Rochester NY, July 10-11, 2010
November 24, 2009
Upstate Watercraft Promotions (UWP) in cooperation with the Monroe County Sports Commission would like to announce the 2010 Rochester Sports and Music Festival and the IJSBA National Tour stop in Rochester NY July 10-11, 2010. The watercross racing will be held in conjunction with a number of sporting activities including Sand Wrestling, Beach Volleyball, Beach Tennis and Sand Soccer. The $10,000 purse committed for this event brings the total IJSBA tour purse to $60,000 in cash for the top competitors!
Prior to this press release it was determined that the date of this event is, regrettably, in conflict with the APBA National Tour event being held in Harbor Beach MI. The staff of UWP has gone to great lengths in an attempt to coordinate a date change for this event so as to prevent the conflict. Meetings were held with representatives of the Monroe County Sports Commission and of Harbor Beach to discuss the viability of adjusting the dates for these two excellent events.
Hammertime Promotions, the promoter for the Harbor Beach event, has also been contacted concerning this issue. Due to the number of other activities that are part of the Rochester Sports & Music Festival the logistics encompassed too many details that could not be altered. Harbor Beach’s annual festival which includes the CAN/AM Cup also encompasses details that prevent any change in the date of the event.
It is understandable that many concerns exist due to this conflict. We sincerely regret the conflicts in the schedule and want to recognize the commitment and hospitality of both Harbor Beach and Monroe County in supporting our sport. All of the parties involved in organizing these events, UWP, IJSBA, APBA, Hammertime Promotions, Monroe County Sports Commission and the City of Harbor Beach understand the complexities of scheduling these events and have committed to working together in the future to prevent schedule conflicts. We greatly appreciate the patience and understanding from all of those involved in making these events successful. This includes the promoters, racers, spectators and PWC enthusiasts.
Thank you for your continued support and we look forward to a successful race season.

Hmmmmm, that is a good question....The absolute middle of nowhere Michigan or deal with a little bit of sludge on the starting line????? Rochester is easy to get to with several flights in and out of the area.....Does anyone really know how to find that desolite moose fart of a town in MI????
On the other hand, I like Troy's idea....

Harbor Beach was a sweet race site when I was there in 07 and 08 and Rochester is good other than that sludge. Probably gonna hit Rochester because I wanna run the whole UWP-IJSBA Tour, but I plan on hitting a few APBA races not too far from me.
