Russ,
Have you checked with Fl. FWC to see if there is going to be any "Emergency No-Wake Zones" because ot the St. John River being so high.... They did that a couple of years ago, and turned the river into almost a complete No-Wake Zone, No-Fun. Great cause and we are trying to plan on being there.
Thanks,
Dean

The USMC Toys for Tots program is a very worth one.

Dean,

The water levels are normal right now. A couple of years ago was a northeaster combined with a tropical depression that would not let the water flow out. There were no restrictions from Palatka north.
Dunns creek is always a concern because of the turns and narrow waterways. Russ has changed that to a friday fun run to 3 Bananas and the pace got much easier to control.
Looking foward to seeing everyone again this year.

Bill sr.
