JC's been in this business longer that just about everybody in the business, I think I even heard 30 years. After all that experience and races he has organized, someone who has control of the Number One venue in offshore racing should be more professional, more ready for what ever curve is thrown his way. Promoters or race groups that do this as a hobby with less years under their belts, have a better grasp on dealing with people.

At least someone has the guts to say what other people only mumble to each other. Kudos to Gino for taking a stand.

I know if the poker run wasn't in kw at the same time, we probably wouldn't make the trip every year.

So when everyone starts talking about going to Key West next year. How many will forget everything, and talk about how great Key West is, and what JC does for the sport.

Bingo.

Bubba *****in is a yearly ritual and if it helps to put it in writing, so be it.
He is what he is and it is not going to change. There is so much that is wrong in some of these posts but it's not worth going into and it's not my job.
I happen to post because it included me as staff.

Aren't you curious as to why his supporters, year after year, read all of this (you can see them in the background) and don't BOTHER to jump in?
Many racers and staff have left who couldn't deal with NOT GETTING THEIR IDEAS ACROSS...and they RETURN.

When you figure it out........you will finally see there is a line in the road in the middle of the 7 mile bridge. It separates the real world from "OZ".

Hot Duck........apology accepted. And please know, I am included in being on the hot end during some of JC's fits. If I can deal with them without calling him a dope smoker and crying like a baby..........why can't.............never mind.
Trust me, if he were every name you have all called him, I would not be there.

Rick......thank you and yes, he was stressed. I have an idea......call him today and say the word "Navy". However, no excuse for rudeness from either him or our staff.
Donna......you are right.......it is his and Bill Spottswood's town. I was going to say get over it, but it would sound rude.

Now go to General Racing section/Jim Natoli thread and read post #49 and concentrate on the important stuff in life.
If you have any serious questions or bashing for me.......
email me.
I'm going to the beach.
PD

p.s. I'll save you some time. The answer is......
hotel rooms, travel expenses and meals.

What Augie said! Everyone is welcome at an OPA race, and anyone that is trying to further the sport, racer, fan, poker runner, whatever, is welcome to join in the fun. OPA has it's faults and has people b!tchin too sometimes, but everyone involved is open and very flexible when new opportunities (and challenges) arise. I have had only minor dealings with JC and he has been straightforward and obviously driven, albeit somewhat gruff. In his defense I will say that from an economic standpoint his organization and KW in particular are as well or better ran than any. In fact my ideal plan for offshore racing includes him as Finance Chairman . It is a shame that sometimes people are so set in their ways they can't see the forest for the trees, but vision is not something that can be taught.
