Default How do you explain the Shootout to someone who has never been?

I have a friend who is considering going to the Shootout with me, but I am not a word-smith and just can't quite put a value on what kind of event this. I have explained to him that if you are a "BIG DOG" in the go-fast boating world or appreciate those who spend their money on that caliber of hardware, it is bar none the blace to be/be seen.
How do you explain it?

It's like going to Vegas, but in
performance boaters terms.

You'll see stuff there that
will blow your mind
