View Full Version : 5th Annual SouthWest Owners Reunion

10-10-2007, 04:46 PM
Island Marine hosted the grandfather of Owners Reunions, the 5th Annual Southwest Owner’s Reunion, this past weekend hosting the largest gathering of Supra and Moomba boats in one place. More than 50 Supra and Moomba boats were on hand with over 200 guests.

Guests were treated to a Cocktail Party the first evening with Hot Wheels Drag Racing Elimination Heats, NHRA style. The competition between Supra and Moomba owners was fierce. Everyone pulled together the following morning at the Naked Turtle for a driver meeting to work out the details of the Poker Run and headed over to the cove for some more good competitive fun. At the cove owners competed against one another in the hilarious three–legged races. Everyone mended their wounds and raced out to Mothers Bay for a tie up float party.

Island Marine had lunch awaiting the crew and several more hilarious games to keep the competition going between Supra and Moomba owners. As the evening drew near we assembled a boat parade that passed under the famous “London Bridge” that now spans the Bridgewater Channel and headed back to the Nautical Inn to clean up and get ready for the Awards Ceremony and the Hot Wheels Drag Racing Finals.

You know, I thought the hot wheels race was intense, but the next morning everyone lined up to compete in the Trailer Backing Contest. The top three boasted scores from 7 seconds to 5 seconds, insane! Some contestants eliminated themselves within 2 seconds. Maybe next year we can have the bottom three do a demo!

The 5th Annual Southwest Owners Reunion was an amazing event. The host hotel even stated that they looked forward to the Supra and Moomba owner’s event each year because it was like a pep rally and a fun group of people. I also noticed guest’s saying before the event was even over that they couldn’t wait until next year. You know there is nothing better than spending time with people who share the same enthusiasm for boating and watersports!

Thanks Island Marine!

Hey there Oregon people, I'm the guy from Washington that moved to Arizona. I love the pictures you posted! I see you have my towerless boat in there too. That's pretty cool that you come all the way down from the cold northwest to enjoy the sun in Arizona!

David when do ypu guys get your know 08?

Thanks for the pics. And yes I am still upset about the you guys winning the LD Award. But now that you say it's 37 up there I don't feel so bad now.
I pulled the boat out of the garage two weekends ago and got her all cleaned up, not that is was even close to dirty. The plan was to hit the lake last weekend but I got rained out! Right now its only about 50, but should get up to 65. Next weekend may be better. I'm not driving around this town with the Superbowl in town, we have an extra 100,000 people or more in town. Everything is crazy!

Talk to you later.
