I thought it was awsome the were over 200 boats in KW betwen the races and poker run how could anyone not like that, all the people that didn't must not have been there.

DOG,

You're absolutely right, there were no bleachers , otherwise it was exactly as it has been for the last 9 years! Oh, except for one thing: there were a lot more porta-poties than I have ever seen at John C's races
Don't get me wrong, in the infamous words of what's his name: " can't we all just get along" !

How many of you paid $35 to watch on Sunday? I don't mind if they charge, just give some back to the racers that put on the show.

Key West is THE place to hold the World Championships. NOT New Orleans, Atlantic City or Ft Lauderdale. I've seen em all. KW is it.

We had a great time....although could have been a few more port-o-lets and a few more food vendors..some bleachers..the boats staged per class in the dry pits...bring the flag hand offs closer to the fans.(in some cases anyhow) and last but not least by very very sure to give the WORLD CHAMPION boat the frikken flag when they win the fracken race ....TO SEE DRAMBUIE JUST MILL AROUND WAITING FOR SOMEONE TO HAND THEM THE FLAG REALLY SUCKED no matter what the circumstances let them have there moment in the damn sun....they worked hard they raced well and deseved to be treated like Champions....


but other than that all was good....go ahead let me have it..

Pete B, Now that's a great idea!....Public awards ceremony immediately following the race with bikini girls passing out flags!

How about the winner of the Miss APBA gets flag duties??

Nice to meet you to, Jesse James.

LOL, Troutly!

Ryan, My thoughts exactly!



Still waiting for the haters to post up.....
Are the APBA worlds better than the other? Is that the problem? Are More boats and a better venue disgruntling?
