There are lots of peple coming from all over, we may run Saturday and Sunday. The is a really cool new place on the Manatee river that would be great to run too. A lot of people are staying at the Ramada Inn on the water by the airport. We can go where ever the weather permits. There will be a few photogs there shooting pics as well and I have also heard from a couple of magazines that want to cover the run this year. We had lunch with Joey's boys the other day and they'll be there as well.

We'll be getting to the Sarasota 10th St Ramp at 10:30 to 11 ish. Plenty of parking there for everyone. Shoot 2 Thrill Pix will be shooting photos off of the Ringling bridge from 11-12 it is a great vantage point for aerial shots. At Noon we'll head north across Sarasota Bay up in to the intercoastal, through Cortez and out into Tampa Bay. We'll go east onto Tampa Bay, into the Manatee River. Keep heading east through Downtown Bradenton passe the three bridges and the Tarpon Point is just past the big US 41 bridge just east of the Manatee Memorial Hospital. Tarpon Point has several docks and we'll tie up and raft up there. There are plenty of other ramps in the area and St Pete for those that want to come another route. I would guess we'll be arriving at Tarpon Point between 1-1:30 and stay for 3-4 hours. They'll have, food, drinks, music, corn hole and more. Please bring ropes and bumpers to tie off, be safe, have fun.

We'll all be thinking of Joey Gratton, Bob Morgan and JT Tillman, guys who loved boating as much as the rest of us.

See you soon.

PS A few of us will be cruising around Sarasota on New Years eve as well.......

Can't wait!!!

We'll be coming from the St. Pete end, and I think we'll put in at Maximo, if anyone else wants to meet up at the ramp.
