Default Water Can Run Uphill/aka/who'd believed?

Kevin Brown, Race Director for the Suncoast Offshore Grand Prix (in Sarasota) that is produced by the Suncoast Foundation for the Handicapped, Inc., the Suncoast Offshore Racing Association, and the Steering Committee, actually approaced the Sarasota Offshore Showdown group and proposed combining the two races. This, after all that was done purportedly by group 1 to sabatoge group 2's race (the SOS). I don't think anything could have had a more "huh/what" effect on me than that. Unbelievable!!!!

The Sarasota Offshore Showdown (SOS) is the group that produced the National APBA race in Sarasota last August. (03'), and will be producing the Second Annual Sarasota Offshore Showdown, presently scheduled for May 15. Group 1 (the Suncoast Offshore Grand Prix/the race held over the 4th of July weekend), for whatever reason, did everything they could to not allow the second race (The SOS) to proceed or take place. I could go on and on about what was done but I will not make this a mud slinging thread. I just wanted to report that Kevin Brown, did in fact, propose joining the two races. That in itself, is news.

Dan, LouAnne and I babble back and forth sometimes 15 times per week about the newest soap opera "As the Prop Turns"

There are way too many O's and S's in this sport for any of it to make sense any more

I have now been contacted and told a different version of what I originally stated. The difference appears in who actually made the proposal to who. If I am in error I apologize to any parties I may owe an apology to, I'm not sure I do. In any case, I was offered the original information from someone who, by all accounts, would know. I will continue to try to get the facts straight. All in all, some type of unification would seem to be a help.
Again, if I do owe someone an apology for something, consider it done.
