According to the local paper, the town (Ft. Meyers Beach) denied the funding request for the race. The race comittee was asking for $20,000. The town fathers were not impressed with the race last year and questioned why there were so few race boats. Ulimately they denied the funding.
I have a copy of the article-If someone wants to scan it-Hauling Trash Mike??

Yes Sir...

it certainly does suck. But Im confident they will work it out in time. I believe JC will have a better showing of boats next year.

We plan on being there. As long there is a race

One of the reasons for the poor turnout in Ft Myers was because it was the same weekend that Apba ran in Marathon. I think I remember 15 boats showed up.

Deb and I went down in Outlaw last year to watch the race. Checked the website at ten p.m. the night before to double check starting times. Got down there and they'd combined the two races into one, started them early, and we missed the whole thing. Pissed me off.
