Northeast PWC Group Rides for 2006
Over the past couple months I posted on multiple PWC message forums compiling a list of e-mail addresses of those that would be interested in receiving e-mails about organized rides here in the Northeast area. Itís not intended to be anything crazy and not intended to add junk to your personal e-mail account. E-mails will be sporadic and only sent when I have worthy information to share. Iím just one of you, someone that got sucked into this ďsportĒ and loves riding my ski in different bodies of water with different people that love rippiní it up out there also.
SO! The first e-mail attempt was sent on Tuesday, February 7, 2006. If you wanted to be a part of this e-mailing database I compiled, you should have received the e-mail. If you did not receive it and wish to be a part of it and contacted about rides up in the Northeast, feel free to e-mail me your e-mail address so that I can add you to it. Also make sure Iím on your safe contacts list and not SPAM or BULK. (NortheastPWC@hotmail.com)
I personally am unaware of any formal recreational PWC club or organization up here, and many of you expressed that to me in an e-mail that you wished there was a better contact system and more organized rides. In previous years there was a Poker Run on the Hudson River. Seems to me weíre left with Region 8 racing events and the rest of the recreational riding is left up to us. So, hopefully this coming season will turnout to be something applaudable, and hopefully as the season and years go on weíll get a larger outcome and potentially formal and sponsored events. I already know of one or two possible locations and business or two interested in getting events together, so hopefully I can prove to them the interest is out there in the Northeast.
****** Now to the Point! Saturday, April 22, 2006 seems like a good date for a season kickoff ride. Spoke with a few people, and this date seems pretty good. Gives the new 06 ski owners a chance to take delivery of their machines, and also gives people time to organize for the Easter holiday without a PWC ride just before it. Only ONE thing will stop us, and thatís rain because it hurts when youíre riding.
If this ride isnít for you, is too far from home, or a bad date, then feel free to organize your own local kickoff season ride. Iíd be glad to help out and get the word out there for you and keep people posted about multiple rides, both large and small.
Date: Saturday, April 22, 2006
Location: Hudson River ~~ Newburgh to Albany/Troy and back ~~ All the times Iíve ridden this part of the river, Iíve been lucky with about 200 miles round trip of a sheet of glass, so I thought it would be perfect since the water will be cold but we wonít get too wet. For some it may be a boring straight-line cruise, but itís a good time and extremely relaxing and an amazing site to see a bunch of skis teariní up and down the river side by side.
Time: We will depart the launch ramp approximately 9:00am. This will give us enough time for fuel stops with a fair number of skis and reaching the destination and returning with ample time before sunset. (The clocks will be turned back ahead already = more daylight)
Let me know on the message boards or via this e-mail if you intend on going so I can get assistance and plan accordingly for a small or large group.
Also, let me know if anyone has questions, suggestions, and ideas for the coming 2006 Season! Hope to meet many new faces and bring about the start to something BIG up here.
** Donít forget! If you did not receive this in an e-mail and wish to be a part of the e-mailing list, send an e-mail to NortheastPWC@hotmail.com

Good ride you have planned. I know its quite a drive for some of you but the place to ride is the 1000 islands. The main town to stay in and start from would be Alexandria Bay, and you could literally tire yourself out riding there is so much to do, both on the American side and the Canadian side, I know there are a few guys on the Canadian side on this forum that ride up there, its a blast.

seems a few people have interest in riding there also. We'll see what we can do and hopefully get a good enough crowd together to make the drive worthwhile

Sorry I can't make this ride, but I will do my best to be at the next one! Thanks for the email as well.

A-Bay has lots of rooms for folks that are travelling and some even have a launch on site.
The night life in the bay is not bad either.

i tell ya when then... you guys do your homeowork on town names, launch ramp meeting place, and find 2 hotels or so, and make sure there's adequate fuel around A-bay...
find out that basic info and e-mail it to me. if there's any good websites that show the area and the waterways, send me those also to .. NortheastPWC@hotmail.com
i'll see what kind of interest we can get together for a ride up there and see if we can find a date for a good outcome.
