"Battle on the Basin" Press Release - 2014

“Battle on the Basin” Slated for September 6th & 7th

The Morgan City Volunteer Fire Department will be presenting the 2014 Championship Boat Races by Deep South Racing Association, “Battle on the Basin,” Saturday, September 6 and Sunday, September 7, 2014 at the Russo Boat Landing on LA 70 in Morgan City beginning at 11:00 am each day. This event just seems to keep getting bigger and better each year. With the help from the Parish Council much work has been done at the boat ramp where almost everyone attending will have front row seats. Food Booths will be selling various food and non-alcoholic beverages. This is truly a family oriented event.

The cost of admittance will be $10.00 – per adult, $5.00 – per child, and $10.00 for each ice chest per day.

The MCVFD provides an Extrication Team for the area of Calumet Bridge to Patterson and Morgan City to the Amelia Bridge. Also they provide medical assistance for the same area and provide additional Firefighter and support personnel to the Morgan City Fire Department. With the support of this event they will improve, buy more, and maintain their equipment to better serve our community.

It’s a great family friendly outing. These boats fly down the river barely touching the water at all. You can’t go wrong with one of these events. For more information contact Gerald Price at (985) 397-6012, or visit www.deepsouthracing.net.
