Default Incredible piece of Offshore racing history!

There was a charity event for P.A.W.S for homeless animals that we help support. They had an auction and I purchase the coolest lot of offshore history. When I was a kid the most famous throttle man was Richie Powers. He donated some very cool stuff to the cause. I was thrilled to be able to win the bidding. These will be framed and displayed in my office. Richie was there to sign everything. I am going to treasure this stuff!

At the Miami Vice part I donated a ride for 3 people to the winner of the raffle. I never heard from them.

I'm sorry we missed it! Any pics from the run? Are you doing the Land & Sea Run next weekend Gino?

PS-I liked my ride in the MTI

It was a good run. It was a rough (as usual). No incidents of any kind!!!! They had a good turn out. They raised a pretty good amount of money for P.A.W.S which was great!! Its a great cause and they do a great job. They took some great photos, I can't wait to get them, some good air shots.
I will be at the Ft. Lauderdale run next weekend. Shold be great. Hopefully the wind will lay down for a change!

Yeah, hopefully the wind dies down. This weekend and last weekend have been brutal! I'm going to try and get everyone together before the run starts and on the same page so we all run together.
