2008 'Freshman Class' Hall of Fame Inductees



 The ceremony took place at LaMotta’s Restaurant

This distinction is awarded to the gentlemen who have displayed powerboat skills in the racing and hi-performance powerboat world of events produced by the National Powerboat Association from its inception in 1976

We had the Junior Class inducted into the NPBA Hall of Fame last night at LaMotta's. Had a lot of the old crew show up...watched our old races...John D'Elia, JD, Joe Sgro, Peter Meyer, Big Paul....when I left John Coen was passed out on the hood of his car (hope it was his car)...

Things did not go totally according to plan, but I and everyone else had a good time.

Quite a unique group!    Billy Frenz, NPBA
