TBD “WINTER SOCIAL!” Oyster Creek Restaurant, Leeds Point NJ
New for 2017! The end of the season fun run to Oyster Creek has always been a hit especially because of its unique location as well as its amazing food! So in 2017 we decided to have a casual get together at Oyster Creek where everyone can come and enjoy some amazing food as well as see summertime boating friends!
Saturday April 8th “SPRING FLING!” River Rock Restaurant and Marina, Brick, NJ
River Rock Restaurant and Marina has become one of the most popular waterfront restaurants in the area! The Spring Fling will hopefully allow members to break out their cool cars for an afternoon / early evening to celebrate the arrival of Spring! With a little luck from “Mother Nature” some of our crazy die hard members just may come by boat!
Sunday May 28th - Memorial Day Weekend Social / Water Street Grill, Toms River NJ

Friday June 16th - Powerboat Rally from Toms River to Atlantic City NJ
2017 is the 20th Anniversary of this annual event!! This event has been the epicenter of the NJPPC schedule since it’s inception back in 1998. Our destination once again is the world class Golden Nugget Casino, Hotel & Marina. This event NEVER DISAPOINTS!!

Sunday July 2nd Brunch Run to Captain’s Inn in Forked River NJ
Captain’s Inn has always been a favorite spot of many NJPPC members for many years. Once again we will be holding a casual “Brunch Run” to the Captain’s Inn. What is better than going to brunch by boat?
Saturday July 15th - Shore Dreams For Kids
Shore Dreams enters its 15th year! This event was originally started by the Day on the Bay Foundation in the 1970’s.
It has touched both the lives of thousands of children who have attended and hundreds of volunteers. This event offers a day of entertainment which includes a “carnival atmosphere” complete with games and small rides, an antique & classic car display, food and drinks, live entertainment and performance powerboat rides on Barnegat Bay at the Jersey Shore. The boat rides are conducted by local powerboat owners who volunteer their time and boats to share with those less fortunate. This is definitely a DO NOT MISS event!
Saturday July 22nd - Rock the River Rally from Toms River to River Rock Restaurant and Marina, Brick, NJ
We tried to do this event in 2016 but weather would not cooperate. So, we moved the event up from early August to late July with hopes that the weather will be better! This event will mark the return of the venerable 1 Day Barnegat Bay (Poker Run) Rally! Yes we are retracing the northern leg of original 1998 NJPPC Poker Run. We’ll offer an in-shore course with multiple stops and eventually end at the beautiful River Rock facility on the Manasquan! For good reason, the Barnegat Bay was our most popular event for many years so don't miss our refreshed 2017 version.
Sunday August 19th Brunch Run to Captain’s Inn & Tices Shoal Raft Up
New for 2017! This will be our 2nd Captain’s Inn brunch run for the season. The difference with the August event is that once brunch is over, we will all head to Tices Shoal for an afternoon raft up! It has been several years since we have had an NJPPC raft up and we are looking forward to its return! If you can’t make the brunch you can still take part of the raft up!
Saturday September 16th – End of the Season Oyster Creek Inn & Atlantic City Fun Run
The weather at the Jersey Shore in September is usually a pretty spectacular. The waterways are quiet and the weather is perfect! This event has become a season end favorite!
We are very excited about the 2017 schedule and we look forward to having another
SAFE & FUN season where boating and friendships flourish!
