Last I checked 60-80 people to sell a video to is a VERY small audience. Do you think that Hollywood would bother to make a movie of boating if they were going to sell even 2000 movies? NO WAY. I would guess that if Jeff sells 500 movies from the worlds he would be extatic. NOW take into account the HUGELY expensice equipment and there goes the profit for him!!! Plus racers flip every once and a while, so not only is the equipment ruined but I asked him what it takes for him to salvage the underwater stuff and let me tell you it is not a short proccess. I believe he said 2 weeks to salvage the Rio Roses flip. Jeff works SUPER hard doing what he does best and God love him for it because he does have a small audience (customer base) and I have no idea how he is making ends meet. This club was his way of responding to peoples critisism that the price of the video's was so high. I think it is a wonderfull idea and hope that other join. I keep this thread up at the top as much as I can for two reasons, both selfish. One is because Jeff is a great guy and I want to see him succeed because if he does not then all I get is the crap coverage on tv and that just does not do it for me. The second reason is that the more people that join the club the better off we all are as the coverage will get better and the camera's will get better and so one But yes to answer your question it is a VERY small audience. Last I talked to him there were I think 30 people in the club!!!!!

Lightbulb got the Apache tape.

This is Jenny posting on behalf of SSherman since he is stranded in Key West....Can anyone find my boss? He is MIA!!! I got some fu*@ed up message that he wanted me to let you guys know that he was watching some of the raw footage from Freezeframe while in Key West, and if you're not a member, than you better become one quick! (Hope I got this right, there was a lot of music and screaming going on! Also, something about the "Upstairs"...Is that even in Key West? What is it?)
Thanks Guys!
