We do have a local club. The Jacksonville Performance Boat Club or JPBC. 20-30 active members on the river or intercoastal. 2 poker runs a year locally. The large one is the Fire Fighters Poker run the 2nd weekend in June. The smaller local run is normally the last weekend of April but this year will be the 1st weekend in June.

We don't have kids so I don't have a clue about school districts.

If you need any information or other help send me pm.

GatorDave~

Thanks for the info on the boat club...we'd be very interested in joining! As for the FireFighter's Poker Run, I think we were going to try and do that one. Can you shoot me an application?

Thanks again and I look forward to meeting you all!

We're finding that out! We've come across some pretty nice waterfront property. But, you know Wiggins wants land to put his building for the boat and his toys. Some of the prices aren't too bad...$350K to $389K for anything from .50 to 2 acres (no home-land only). We're going down there this Friday to see what we can find. Wish us luck!

P.S. Congrats on the house...I can't wait to see it all finished!

If you can get a lot on the river for that I would jump on it....I haven't seen any that cheap down there in awhile. Last time I was down there I saw a couple that were both over $1 million. I haven't been there in awhile now though.

Should be in the house in a couple of weeks and will definitely have everyone over soon I hope
