It is a great show; the whole town comes out for the parade and races. The city has been putting on this race together with SBI/APBA for 22 years! Lido beach.

Man this is awesome, I will be there, is it best to be in a boat or on land? Thinking about venturing down from Tampa Bay to check this out. See You There!

Anyone know about the ramp situation since the one in town will be closed off to the public? I'm debating on coming down Saturday with boat maybe. I can put in at DeSoto if that's the easiest.

It can be a damn ruff ride across Tampa Bay if the winds kick up. This picture is coming back from a poker run in Sarasota, I had no choice but to come back. That's a 38 Cig getting beat up beside me.

YES! It's going to be huge, it's going to be awesome.
The Suncoast Offshore Grand Prix is probably one of the best races of the whole year, second only to Key West!

We'll be there!

I know!!! How do you think I broke my onboard cooler over Mem day weekend??? I could have some photo evidence because I was photographed by those boatpix people coming back in Sat early evening/late afternoon, but I'm afraid to even get in touch with them because of all the bad things I've heard.

Still debating on if it's feasible to go down there Sat. much less with or w/o money pit...
