     This joint resolution designates the Lake Hopatcong Racing Association in Lake Hopatcong State Park, New Jersey, as the New Jersey Governor's Cup Hydrofest Series.  In 2009, the State designated the Sunset Lake Hydrofest as the New Jersey Governor's Cup Hydrofest Series.  In September 2015, the Hydrofest Planning Committee cancelled the Sunset Lake Hydrofest (renamed the Wildwoods Hydrofest New Jersey Governor's Cup Regatta) because the reconfiguration of the streets and parks along the Sunset Lake bay area made it no longer feasible to hold the event.  This joint resolution transfers the New Jersey Governor's Cup Hydrofest Series from the Sunset Lake Hydrofest to the Lake Hopatcong Racing Association.
