My first time to the KW was this year during the Miami Boat Show and we had a blast! It will be great meeting more of the OSO group, and I'm surrrrre if the parties are any thing like the FPC/OSO Miami bash the will be ok

Berns-

Yea I should have just booked it with the flight, I checked out Hertz web site it's about dead on price wise Iíll end up just doing that.

Youíre going to be getting in at a good time! heck our flight lands at 11:30PM we won't get to the house till late, but I'm not complaining!

The latest from OSO headquarters is that you have to have a permit in Key West to throw a party.

It appears that the permit process has to be done months ahead of time.

I know a permit to throw a party, please.

So, if someone wants to have an "unofficial gathering" some where please let us know.

Personally, I will be hanging around The Conch Republic where the 180 Poker Run Boats will be.

Stop by and see us and we will buy you a drink.

The racing has been a disapointment for me over the last few years. I hope they have a much bigger and better turn out than in the past.
