I agree with you totally, divided nothing gets achomplished. I posted for Wil to call, but it seems his post was deleted due to "Not of my opinion" so who posted under his name? Randy? Bertel? I kinda think Bertel, the grammer was just too perfect Heck I figured the Unbiased(hehe) reporter would have called, but no I have recieved about 20 calls from fans and havent heard anything from an OSS racer. I would love to bring positive solutions to our owners meetings, but if they dont call, I guess I dont have any ammunition so to speak.

One day when everyone gets tired of putting money into a bottomless pit, we will all race together and who cares what the name of the association is, we will be one. Ok, time to wake up, I was dreaming for a minute

the only thing in common, is they both have racers and fans hat are passionate about the sport.

i think the off season will bring many surprizes, to those that follow offshore racing.
Got any clues? Enquiring minds want to know.

And obviously that is their rights as Americans. In '03 the team I ran with a team that decided to run in OPA, LLC, and SBI. Did we get any discounts, nope, we paid equipment fees in all 3. That was the owner's choice. Just out of curiousity didnt all these guys in OSS run 8-10 races a year, in the past? Arent these the guys, as posted earlier, that have a the big boats and the money? I guess they are content with their 7 race schedule, cause I respect the heck out the teams that have run a complete SBI/APBA schedule, 18 races in one year,with 11 being National, wow and I heard there will be more added to the schedule next year.

As Frank asked, if we wanted to run OSS would they give us a discounted rate? I asked it too and still havent got an answer from ya, but we all know the answer is NO. So I guess bottom line is, what makes them so special?

By the way, I look forwards to your wife's OSO party in KW, see ya in Key West!!!!

Let me guess, OSS and OPA merge which gives OSS open boats and OPA's firm schedule

Who knows but I guess its a good rumour to start

OPA already has a firm schedule no need to merge with anyone

Who ever said I was unbiased? Hehe???

Besides, EBM is done covering SBI/APBA races. We refused to pay SBI in order to cover the SBI/APBA races. Who ever heard of a publication paying to cover an event???? Who ever heard of an event asking to receive money for someone to cover it? Some things just make you say Hummmm.

Hey Trent...when the walls come tumbling down, I hope your not under them.

SBI has and keeps sites because they may like JC and and he produces a show. Is it the show what they were expecting? Is it a quality show? I dont know, ask them.

They are his customers. A good businessman will stroke his customers, if they are putting money in his pocket. The racers seem to be his employees. The racers and fans alike, are the ones being screwed. By the way, has anyone received awards money? Or are they still applying credit to future races?

Seems to me, your ship is slowly listing to port. better jump before you go down with it.

70 boats in KW.....I dont think so.

I understand the position your in. You may not have asked for it and you may not like it. But your in it now. Stand tall for what you believe in.
Best of luck to ya little buddy.
