ONCE AGAIN NO RACES FOR THE PEOPLE THAT LIVE IN SOME
OF THE OTHER GREAT LOCATIONS TO RACE LIKE BALTIMORE
NEW YORK, NEW JERSEY,DELAWARE,MARYLAND ,VIRGINIA,ETC
THESE RACE SITES WERE GREAT,DONT GET ME WRONG RACING AT THESE OTHER EVENTS IS COOL BUT WE WOULD CERTAINLY LIKE TO HAVE SOME LOCAL VENUES.WHAT IS EVERYONE ELSES THOUGHTS ON THIS.

What happened to Cleveland? And for a growing sport why are we wasting our time with the Bahamas? Not sure about all you guys, but I feal we would get a much better fan base and sponsor exposure if we kept the races in the states. Not to mention the expense and agrivation for the teams to make it to the Bahamas.
This sport will never grow if we have new venues each year and keep changing the schedule during the season. We have been talking to sponsors that have much more interest in National and Northeast exposure then going to some vacation island!

Frustrated racer!

Steve,
I went to the Bahamas event and it was spread out all over the island. Not good when you have to take a $20 cab ride everywhere you went ($40 rountrip). I could see the pits across from Our Lucaya Resort, where we stayed, but couldn't take find a water taxi to get across the harbor. I don't even want to get into the VIP Pass fiasco. Don't get me wrong, we had fun but it wasn't convient to participate with the race festivities. I guess we could have rented a car and dealt with driving on the wrong side of the road. They really need to figure out the logistics if they are going to continue to race there. I say pull the race out of Freeport and go back to Cleveland.
Once again, Poker Runs are more appealing.

If I remember correctly, which is sometimes difficult in Key West. I believe Michigan was mentioned as a new site at the drivers meeting.

These are all National event's right? Any info on divisional dates?

It does suck that there is not a date for the Northeast.

I was looking to race agian with Becca next year and let her drive my boat, I was hoping for some closer events.

Ohh well.

I hope they keep Cleveland some how, that is one of the best venues I've been to a race at ...

Honestly, I'm not sorry if Cape Cod isn't around again though ...

Someone mentioned St. Cloud, that's not shown because it's a divisional race (even though it sometimes gets more boats than some of the National races!).
