Why all this bashing? Just go race where you wish and go have fun. Because if you (the racers) are not having fun at the events, why spend the money and risk your life?
true,race and have fun or stay on the porch!!!

Well I'll be in Biloxi if you want to attend

Next month's issue will have the OPA race from Cambridge MD and the SBI Worlds from Deerfield.

The rest of my schedule hasn't been worked out yet.

I'm sure I'll be at several APBA races throughout the year.

Enjoy the season and be safe.....

Just an observation, but doesn't any outside corporation OR Not for Profit organization need funds to survive? Even though OSS is not a sanctioning body, they still have officials, (whether elected or hired) salaries/expenses, racing costs and so on. I guess APBA isn't the only one looking at the sky...

Gordo, you are absolutely correct. A not for profit corporation is certainly allowed to earn/keep money to cover expenses. Money used to pay expenses is not considered profit.

Sorry but I just can't stay out of this thread. My personal humble opinion is that OSS has done nothing but further splinter the sport. If OSS had put as much effort and energy into helping to better or unify offshore racing as a whole, I think we would be much further ahead of the game, instead of developing this tremendous quagmire.

Here's to Fever Mike.

I raced from '99 to '01 and would race APBA again if I was to get back in.

"OSS has done nothing but further splinter the sport."
