THE GIFT OF LIFE..... MAKE A DIFFERENCE For GARY ROEBEN
October 10, 2014
GARY ROEBEN, owner of Rogers Speed Shop, formerly of Mantaloking and now in Garwood, NJ for 40 years...and a former renowned power boat racer at the Jersey Shore, is in need this Christmas.
GARY, 67, a Marine and a veteran of the Vietnam War and some of the worst battles of the 1967 era, has recently discovered that he is in immediate need of a KIDNEY TRANSPLANT. Kidney transplants are the most common form of organ transplants and the highest success rate.
Gary's family is expanding their network of friends, relatives and acquaintances in search of a truly altruistic donor. Blood type is no longer an issue with transplants. The donor should be under age 60 and in overall good health. Gender does not matter. It is a lot to ask of a person, but there are many truly well-spirited people in Ocean County, this state and country. You may not be able to give but you never know if you might know someone somewhere!
Gary's insurance will pay all costs for the donor, testing, operation and any other transplant related meds which may be nothing than other than discomfort meds. Most donors are in the hospital 3 days, maximum 4, and okay to go home. With a week's rest they return to work.....
OPA Winter Awards Banquet Celebration
February 10, 2015
Coming off another very successful racing season, the OPA Teams once again converged at the Stockton Seaview Hotel in Galloway Township, NJ holding their annual meeting and moved over to the Awards Banquet hosted by the Oyster Creek Inn in Leeds Point, NJ.
During the meeting, Ed “Smitty” Smith, President of OPA, confirmed the unification with APBA again for the 2015 Season.
Some changes were discussed during this meeting that will be reflected in the 2015 Rule Book. OPA will continue to red flag races anytime there is an incident on the course. Once the course is clear, the race will be restarted.
The awards banquet is always more like a family reunion for wayward racers. The house was packed with a live band and fantastic food. Teams came from Nevada, Michigan, Ohio, Maryland, New York, Pennsylvania, Virginia, and New Jersey..........
