It was a pleasure to be part of such a great event. Not to many weeks ago myself, Larry, and others involved were a bit nervous about who would attend and continued to receive skeptical opinions from some.
At the end of the day it didnít take us but a fraction of a second to realize we were in this because we believed in it and there was no way we were going to lift. We just stayed in the throttle and worked that much harder to pull it off.
We owe everything to the participants who believed in it like we did and showed up regardless of weather, rain, boat type or affiliation.
If you have a passion for this sport then the events on Friday and especially Saturday night we not to be missed. There was an incredible amount of history, comradelier, and passion in the room at Gulfstream Park.
I can only imagine what Don would say walking into the bar and looking down at the track with a few million dollars of boats parked on it and old boat racing films on the screen in the infield.
Regardless of how many years we continue to hold this event and how big it becomes. I cannot imagine any of them will be like this first one was.
Thanks for showing up and believing!
