I know I'm going to get my head cut off for saying this, but you are highly over-rating the presence of the poker run boats during race week. They need their own week and give them the whole town, just like biker week. The city would be more open to that than bringing in a new organization.
And that is NOT just my personal opinion.
There is an editorial in the Key West Citizen yesterday that sums up how the city feels. It does include the poker run boats, and they appreciate everyones business.
I have also received many emails and pm's and at first I was afraid to open them.
But it has been interesting, and educational. Racers who race with SBI and people I've never met have given me new insight into some of the people posting and commenting on the situation that started it all. Some are pretty funny and most won't even get into it because the song is so old.
Different opinions and complaints are expected and can be dealt with.........but the trash talk and name calling puts you below the level of the person your talking about. Clean it up and maybe someone will listen to you.
Thanks Trent.......my other half says "what does he want now?"
