    Hey stranger, how have you been? Got rid of the GPR a couple years ago.. Riding a slow seadoo now and will build a race ski soon when money permits, main focus is the race series. Give us a call when you come to visit family in Florida.

    How are things coming along with the series? Is it still looking like an event is possible this year?

    Hello Stephen, The plan is to try to have one before the end of the year to help raise some funds to make the series better. I will be meeting with the owner of a new site in the next couple weeks.... I am very excited about this site as it will have a lot to offer for all. Permits and insurance and $$$ are going to be my biggest hurdle but, the owner of the lake said he would help me through the process/paperwork. If we can make this location a go the series will explode. Don't want to say to much and jinx it. I am in the process of wrapping up big job and should be done next week. Then I will be full throttle making this a go. Thanks.

    Got a chance to check out a new race site yesterday. We met with the owner and reviewed the site and what it has to offer and He is really going out of his way to help me make this happen and will have his full support.
    The lake we will be running on is about a mile long and is spring feed and is a clean as the day is long. There is two more lakes within 30ft to test during the races if need be. There are 3 nice host hotels within 3 miles that will be offering group discounts. One of Tampa's best DJ's will be providing music and communications, There will be food vendors there, local media, and right next door a super family friendly recreation park with beautiful white sand and tons of activities. I will be setting up the launch ramp early friday morning to let the racers get comfortable with launch process. Currently working with a dedicated member of the PWC community to do all the promoting, website and facebook so should have soon once all details worked out. I will be needing some help with running the event and will need a course marshal and a couple other for general operations help. I took some photos of the lake we will be using and some of the family lake next to it. We will be following the ISJBA rulebook per drag racing rules and hope that they will be picking up us after we show them the first race.
    The classes will be as follows:
    Box stock- No mods what so ever
    Pro stock- Per ISJBA
    N/A & Vintage (pre 2003 no boost)
    Spec - Per ISJBA
    Super Stock- Per ISJBA
    Unlimited- Per ISJBA
    I can not stress enough the importance of safety will have to be with these events.
    If anyone wants to sponsor or donate to this event, Please let me know as I will be on a shoe string budget till we can get the first race off the ground. Thank You

    Looks like it would be an outstanding venue!!!

    Spring feed clear water, white sandy beaches...whats not to like. Arrange it with a few food trucks.

    ...
    Where will the race area be relative to the shoreline and audience areas?

    Running parallel to the shoreline or running away from shore?

    Any elevated areas for viewers?
