AMEN!

i think the drive up attendance will be down though... that is a much further and out of the way place to drive to for most of the lake.... and i think some boats wont go down the extra 12 miles.... not the hardcore guys on here, but the curious ones who stopped in on their way to PC...

the only thing guaranteed will be the 13 mile washing machine ride back afterwards....

I'm not sure it will have that big of effect on attendance with the possible exception of people not in boats. Coming from the 3.5mm we had to go a little over 17 miles to watch it in the past and another 11 or 12 miles isn't going to make that big of difference.

We'll just have to get the troops moving a little earlier in the day to get a good spot.

Seems to me that a fair amount of people venture all the way up to Big Dick's at the 47mm and don't have an issue with the distance and people still want one or two last flings on the water after Labor Day anyway.

Without seeing a course layout, I would think the additional length is for run-up and shut-down areas for safety purposes.

The old Regatta permit listed it at the 23mm on the WP website and it went all the way past the 21mm.

A 2 mile course would be awesome, the speeds would probably increase at least another 10 mph for the big dogs.

THE SHOOTOUT WILL BE HELD ON THE SAME WEEKEND AS BEFORE AND THE COURSE WILL BE LAYED OUT THE SAME AS BEFORE A 1 MILE COURSE WITH STAGING AND SHUTDOWN TIME.

So are you saying that you're going? And if so, this means we get to molest you again?
