PS. Lee Mills is one of the APBA LLC stock holders. He's invested lots of money into the LLC. And he's the guy who brought the APBA back to Key West three years ago. So what gives? What changed from last year to this year? Why is a stockholder going against his own company?

As the promoter he gets 100% of every dollar.....as a shareholder he splits it with the other shareholders...better economics as promoter.

Last I heard Lee Mills is no longer a partner..been that way for quite a while.
Thers only 2 people on this earth that know the real story, and we'll never get the straight truth from either one of them, so everybody may just as well get used to it. Its not like this has never happened before guys.
As a matter of fact read the letter from LLC above...see his name on the bottom????

Lee Mills is still trying to have a "race" in Key West, but at this point I doubt he gets his permits from the city. Even if he does somehow still pull off a race, it will have no insurance, no points, no sanctioning body, nothing other than maybe some trophys.
The "Real Race" will be in Orange Beach, Alabama

Nice letter APBA. TO bad it does not amount to a hill of beans. You guys keep saying this over and over and over again. Same old story that gets old. When you give two damns about your fans then let us all know. As of now it is only you that matters and it seems that you have alienated your fan base good on this one. I used to try and fallow the racing but for now you guys have screwed things up so bad that I can not fallow all the mahem. There is NO WAY that I would make any plans to travel to any APBA event due to this crap, let alone try and plane to get a race boat there and get sponsorship. Remember Lots of sponsorship for boats is LOCAL sponsors. You think that it is fair to ask guys to just shift gears and move things I am guessing that you are way wrong.
