Welcome to the 2018
NAMBA Lone Star Nationals
The Dallas RC Thunderboats are proud to host the 2018 NAMBA Lone Star Nationals in beautiful Carrollton, TX! Our centralized location will pull some of the best racers from the East and West, so don’t miss this event! Our race site provides plenty of pit area, camping (self contained) and race viewing area. Our race site is in a local city park and we will have the area blocked off for our use so we can party like rock stars after the racing!
Monday night’s welcome party and Friday night’s paddle boat race and concourse judging will be held at the race site.
Dinner for Monday night will be Mexican and Friday will be Texas style BBQ catered by local restaurants, see race entry form for prices.
The awards banquet will be held at the host hotel, Hilton Garden Inn Dallas/Lewisville, there will be a cash only bar.
We encourage everyone to stay at the Hilton Garden Inn Dallas/Lewisville. You will not find a better deal, they offer free breakfast and a great rate. They are 5 mins away via the highway or 10 minutes by street. There is a cash bar onsite as well as bars/restaurants within walking distance. Make your reservations early!
For those that have never been to the DFW area, our location provides easy access to a majority of the city. There is a rail line within minutes of the race facility. If you arrive the first weekend, you don’t want to miss the State Fair of Texas. Grapevine Mills and Vista Ridge malls are also within 15 mins for those that like to shop. For those with kids, Six Flags and Great Wolf Lodge (indoor water park) are also close by. AT&T Stadium, home of the Dallas Cowboys, is also close. If interested in a tour, please contact me.
All three power sources will be offered allowing more fun for those that want to mix things up! 6 boats are required to make a class. For the race format, the first round is predetermined. Subsequent rounds are based on your prior rounds finish. Total points at the end of the 4 rounds determines the final finishing order. Heat sheets will be provided if requested.
October weather is normally mild and should allow for some very fast racing, it would not surprise me to see some records set!
This will be an event you don’t want to miss! Bring a smiling face and a good attitude and be ready to have some fun!
