A vacation in KW can be done anytime, racing for a world title only happens once a year. Competition the clear winner is Destin, race enthusists are here for the competition, they will be treated to some spectacular racing. Poker runners KW wins hands down! there isnt a poker run here, JUST RACING, and PARTYING.

Re: Destin or Key West ?

Viewing the race..Mallory square..the Mole..Pier House..Fort Zach Park..better than a condo balcony..that's what I meant by better viewing.
And WARMER AND DUVAL..beats Miracle Strip Parkway..but I admit that Howl at the Moon and A.J.'s always does it's share to provide good entertainment.
Everyone enjoy the races and have loads of fun where ever you are.

I couldnt argue the better viewing before I was at Destin but now that Ive been to both places, I can. Having been in KW and watching from 2 different locals, there was no better place to view then on the beach or tons of condos along the beach in Destin .... Chuck, were you at the race in Destin? If not, you really cant say KW has better viewing ... well you can ... but its just a guess tho if you havent been to both

Mark,
I know you hate that OSS , OPA, and POPRA had a successful worlds, and the fact that a select few have the money and desire to make the sport move forward really burns your A$$. The offshore fans that came to Destin came to see racing, and they did.

As for the Axe to grind if i recall He ran with that group last year.

And the one guy who uses his own money??? he uses the racers money,
and reggies money, and banks on the poker runners showing up in kw to spend mad cash which they do. KW only wants rooms full, and the poker runners did that.



If it werent for reggie there wouldnt have been a show!



Maybe you and Frank GOO- hand can make a strong showing next year.

Dude lay off the Crack Pipe. I dont hate OSS. I just have a strong dislike for you and a few others.

Come to think of it, didn't you miss 2004KW? If so, that's why your recent memory is scewed.

It certainly doesn't burn my azz to watch a few spend their money. I like it. Although 3+ years later, I'm pretty certain that the guys who started OSS never thought they'd have to shell out this much money, especially to attract another 50% of the Destin fleet with the lure of prize money. Don't get me wrong, great idea. Seemed to work. And as I said earlier, Destin was the show this year, no question. Congrats!

What burns my azz is the split up of the boats and talk of unification doesn't even occur anymore. What a joke.

For once Pete, take a step back and look at the big picture, not just your little world.

PS - Where are the Hooter Hooties pix you promised.
