Mike, It will be a positive future. Appologies are ment to mend the past and strengthen the future. Again, I appoligize for the negative comment I made a few weeks ago and hope that too will go into the past. I too would love to see APBA continue to grow and become the spectator friendly offshore race that you have intended on it being. Here's to the future and best of luck with your success with APBA and all your ventures. Dave Warden

Mike that is what I feel to be a heart felt apology, and a stand up move!!! I am sure that you have read many of my post criticising you and the APBA about all these scheduall moves. I for one will be watching next year and seeing if you guys hold it together so that I can start to get excited to race again. My best wishes to you and the racers for a great worlds and best of luck to you and the crew to solidify the schedual for next year.

Jon

Thumbs up

Michael,

I wish you and your family a peaceful and joyous New Year. To you and your crew at APBA Offshore, I believe your above post is one of honest and heartfelt compassion and atonement. It takes a tremendous person to stand up and do the right thing, facing his mistakes, and moving forward a better person for them. You have done a eloquent job of doing so. Your words speak volumes and I wish nothing but continuous success ahead.

With Warmest Regards,

Shane Mahieu

Mike

Now I think you can say you know exactly how Rocky felt at the end of the first Rocky movie. Good job congrats on the path you're on. See you in Ala and next year back on the circuit.
