            Will registration be open Sunday and Monday? Or just Monday? Will there be a pre-register option?

            Please remember to go to http://www.michiganhydroplane.com/Gr...eNats2017.html to register you trailer and other information requested for planning purposes.

            If you have a certain racer, group or Region you want to pit next to please leave that in the comments section and we will do our best to accommodate your request. Of course due to trailer sizes and other restrictions this may not be possible in all cases. Thanks!

            Looking for some ideas for the kids during to take a break form the racing action while in town. See the list and website below for some great ideas.

            Top Six Places to Take the Kids - http://www.experiencejackson.com/things-to-do/

            #JacksonMI

            1.Splash Pad – Because your kids like the water too, but they aren’t looking for a competition.

            2.Nixon Park – two words: Water Park.

            3.Ella Sharp Museum – It’s more than a museum, it’s an interactive piece of the past with plenty of land for your kids to expel some energy.

            4.Trails in Jackson – Explore the outdoors with your kids.

            5.Cell Block 7 Prison Museum – Because maybe, just maybe, your kids will start listening to you if they think you plan on leaving them at the Prison.

            6.Quiet World Sports – A slower water racing experience.

              Re: 2017 Stock/Junior Outboard Grass Lake Nationals Information

              Now that we've given you some ideas for kids (see above post), we thought the mom's, girlfriends and significant others might want to get away and visit one of the local wineries or breweries. Both are great options and many of lunch and some have dinner options as well.

              Wine & Beer - http://www.experiencejackson.com/thi...r-the-foodies/

              Jackson is home to Wineries along the Southeastern Pioneer Wine Trail, as well as other local Vineyards. With several Vineyards, local Breweries, and tap rooms, adults are sure to have a good time exploring Jackson. Read more about the Wine and Beer options in Jackson on the Experience Jackson website.

                Re: 2017 Stock/Junior Outboard Grass Lake Nationals Information

                Ok, Freeman Farms Team will be there.
                Eli in 42-A for JSH, AXH, JSR and 9-A for AXR.
                Quin maybe for 9-A in JSH and JSR.
                We've picked our pit friends, made motel reservations and bought a new truck.
                The Race Circular says not to send in registrations in advance.
                Is there anything else we have to do in advance?
                Thank you in advance, LarryR

                  As long as you registered for a Pit Stall at the 2017 Grass Lake Nationals page on www.michiganhydroplane.com you are all set. We look forward to having your team there.

                  Charlie,
                  It is not being planned at this time. If it were it would be a "special event" on Saturday along with the Marathon Divisionals and CSH/CSR tag team event. Stay tuned.

                  Believe it or not we are now within 45 days of the 2017 SO/J Outboard Nationals and we are finalizing some plans. One of those that needs to be finalized in the next week is our pit stall layout/assignments.

                  If you haven't registered for your pit stall yet, please do so by June 14th at http://www.michiganhydroplane.com/Gr...istration.html

                  Thanks!
