Ron,

Few questions:

1)In '04, why did OSS recieve TDC money when they didnt fulfill their end of the contract? A:Because JC thought it was the right thing to do for the betterment of the sport

2)Why dont you, being the big time Offshore Editor that you are, contact JC himself and ask him these same questions that you are instructing everyone else to and you seem to be able to contact everyone else but him? hell I'm a peon racer and I know the truth A: I dont have a clue to your logic

3)As reported in other posts, Bacardi Silver, (arguably the most recognizable boat in offshore today) is running in KW this year;Why?
A:your the UNBIASED(hehe) reporter, do your homework

4)When the 3 sanctioning bodies agreed to run KW together in '04, one stipulation was that they honor each others banishments from their individual associations. Why was one particular racer allowed to race when he was banned from one of the bodies? A: Because JC thought it was for the betterment of racing

Please Ron you are a good man and I respect you, but please do me a favor quit trying to protray that SBI/APBA and John are evil and they are the villians. We as a whole(all offshore racers) are the villians because we keep screwing the fans.

A little disclaimer, above stated is facts, not intended to bash or anything of the sort. Yes I am a SBI/APBA racer due to the fact that they are the only major circuit that offers the F1 class. If others offered it also I would race anywhere, anytime, against anyone.

Just for the record, that answer is simple and I thought had been made very clear to everyone in the past - this team races when and where my sponsor wants us to race. As the premier sponsor in any sport, their venue decisions are based on marketing goals and not sanctioning body politics.

Hopefully Bruce is right and next year will be better.

Something has got to change.

Ron..

Are you saying no OSS boats in Deerfield??

I've heard an OSS members side of the story, which was very convincing. Now I wonder why J. Carbonnell doesn't try to explain his side of the story. It is unfortunate that they all can't be in Key West.

Hi Marc,

Since Deerfield is an SBI/APBA race and the OSS race in Corpus Christi Tx is the following week, I highly doubt that any OSS boats will show in Deerfield. Just a guess, time will tell.

Thanks Ron..

I guess I'll cover for you at Key West.

I'lll have more time watching the course and the cement view blocker instead of spying on you in the food tent..

OUCH...Damn that hurt...

By the way.. why doesn't anyone mention Callan?? Where will they be running..

I still like your "NATURAL" photos..
