Newberg Memorial Weekend Boat Races – Cancelled



It is with heavy hearts for all the members of the Newberg Boat Club (NBC) and Columbia Outboard Racing Association (CORA) to feel it necessary to cancel the 72nd Memorial Weekend Boat Races in 2020.

Not knowing if COVID 19 will be under control by the end of May.
Not knowing when Governor Brown may lift the ban on gatherings of
more than 10 people.

Not knowing if the tremendous amount of organizations and individual
people we count on to volunteer each year would be there to help out.
Not knowing how many participants and spectators would be in attendance.
This was a very hard decision to reach, but we feel it is the right decision
under the circumstances.

Keeping everyone safe and healthy is of our utmost concern.

We now will look forward to our 73rd year and hope you will be there
by our side when we return in 2021.
