Currently we do not have a lake downstate area ny..the one we were using in long Island is being restored and we hope to have it back next year..we race two locations in New Jersey saffin pond and horseshoe lake, one in pa called magnolia lake in Bristol. If you go to Www.namba-1.com there's more info on directions of these locations. If u getting kicked out without getting a ticket u are lucky. Try going fo your parks dept and getting a permit for use of a site. Since 9/11 there has been a classification called critical infrastructure...a lot of these bodies of water/ parks have been under that and it has caused the shut down of boating flying any drones planes basically any rc use in parks...local and state....it's bad in nj.the conservationists have their hand in that as well saying we disturb the environment with noise pollution. So the lakes we use we had for years but getting new ones is a huge fight...doesn't seem like we have a chance...the only other option I was told is to find a private land owner and see if I could have them agree to use their spot...but the catch is u have to present yourself as a club not an individual. U can talk with the guys in Elmira NY. Pete forcier it's a imbpa club. It might be a drive away but they have 2 day racing throughout the year...u could get your boating fix like that...I've done that....you also have to realize you will have to travel to race. If there's nothing close by u have to start it up....if u build it they will come. Those suggestions might be a haul but look into namba dist 11 they are closer to you.

That would be saffin pond...our webmaster is also the club president there...you would have to join that club..Morris County roostertails to have access to the pond. It's a namba legal pond and we race there twice a year. Race schedules and dist 1 rules are at our site..www.namba-1.com. u need to join namba and get familiar with the rule book...it will go a long way. U will understand the difference between yhe local dist rules and classes we run vs the national rules and classes offered at those events
