I also noticed the difference in dates/days on the APBA website, so I called last week and asked them about the schedule. I was told "Thursday and Friday". I know that the Kava Kava GM Vortech Extreme is registered to come up from Florida for the event and was also told the run was on Friday. By the way, the boat wasn't supposed to arrive here from Florida till Thursday afternoon. So, since I'm on duty Wednesday and Friday, meaning I get off duty 0700 Thursday morning, I beg to get the time off duty Friday, (our policy states vacation requests be at least 2 weeks in advance) so I can have Thursday & Friday off. My vacation gets approved, (after some "creative tact without actual sucking up"). Yesterday, Funhome calls me asking when Miklos and Decuices will arrive at LOTO. When we discuss dates, I again get nervous and called APBA.
NOW I find that there was a minor miscommunication and the days are actually Wednesday and Thursday.
GREAT !!!! I just wasted a vacation day for nothing, and have no hope of getting Wednesday off. I also had things set up for an incoming race team that is now wasted time, but the worst part is, some of the teams from Florida are now scrambling at this very moment to "load and go" so they will make it here in time.
Gawd I love racing sometimes.
Gordo why do you think that this sould be any different from any other APBA event? They run their shows like a bunch of 12 year olds, can not even match dates with days.

Um, Kitten,
Most of us dont like to use the word "break" when referring to boats.

Mpally, I was thinking about that church also, since the boat's are putting in at the public boat ramp about 2 miles up the Gravois Arm it might be the closest to the action, but heck I don't know!?!? I still think the Falls Condo's would be awsome to watch from but I don't know anyone with one!? (The reason I say that is from watching the video of last years run)

Sherman, Where is windjammer condo's? When are you going down?
