Bill Muncey Memorial, Mission Bay Park, San Diego

The Bill Muncey Memorial is more like a shrine to those that knew the man. And well deserved. His impact on Local and International levels of Hydroplane Racing is legendary. The Memorial is in needy disrepair. We need help with all phases of the project. If you have access to a speedy process through the Permitting. Or are a Bonafide Contractor, or . . . contact our Committee as soon as possible. We have five weeks. See More
