" this year’s fireworks will be larger than shows in New Orleans, Mobile, Atlanta, Pensacola, Jackson and Birmingham"

"the main body of this year’s Biloxi show will include 1,000 shells that range in size from a softball to a basketball. The largest shells will create a colorful pattern two football fields wide. And the grand finale of the show will be comprised of 7,628 different shells ranging from the size of a ping-pong ball to a basketball."

According to a couple of websites, the (July 2) Friday night fireworks show is also on! It appears that the big July 4th show is in about the same spot.

I'll be out there, but I don't know that I'll make it that far west. I'll definately be on Horn Is. all weekend. I'll keep an eye out for you. A 38' Hustler on the MS coast is a hard to miss.

Have a good weekend and watch for the obligatory 4th of July thunderstorm that seems to come through every year.

I figure on Friday we will go out to the Islands and come back at sunset and at 9. Watch the Fireworks out in front of the Casinos.Then go out to eat probaly Farraddays and get the 20oz prime rib.

Saturday head out about noon ,don't know which Island yet .Come back in about sunset Go out to eat. Probably the Brew Pub at the Beau Rivage. Get some Biloxi Blonde's Its a pretty cool bar there.


Sunday same thing .The big fireworks display is at 9 . I figure we will all raft up in front of the casinos to watch the fireworks .


Monday is going to suck

Eric is Johnathan getting out??

Jim-
I won't have the Formula this weekend. I'll be on a 40' Hatteras - named "M.T. Pockets" I'll keep an eye out for you. I'll most likely be at the east end of Horn on Sun. and Mon.

If you see me, stop and say hi and I'll buy you a beer.

Reed

Reed, we will be at the east end of Horn also. Boat will be parked at the Country Club while I am there, swing by there and say Hello or will see you at the islands. Sorry you won't have the Formula there, really wanted to see it.
