I think boat week is August 15-19 and I think that the poker run is that last weekend. I think you can find the scedule by going to www.Ramadafwb.com and then click on AJs. They have a schedule of events is where iI found it.

bigboat, sorry I'm just now getting back to you, I've been out of town. We did the poker run last year, but I don't think we will again, after that party they had at the end of the day. That took way to long. I think if they want to raise more money they should just charge more. So anyway, to answer your question, no we are not going to do the poker run, but we are going to be their. I'ts a great run and lots of fun people, but boy I can't stand the way they drag out the ceremonies.

I spoke to Becky @ Emerald Coast Foundation back in November when we were still looking for our DVD's from the run in 2004. She told me the date of the run is 8/20/05 and this year that are having the big party at Crab Island on 8/21 like they did two years ago. Last year they did it the Sunday before the run, but they didn't have as much of a turnout.

What about the award ceremonies after the run? If you were there last year, you had to be filling the pain, that I think most people were feeling. We finally left before we even knew who had won.

I SPOKE WITH SHELLY AT THE EMERALD COAST FOUNDATION AND TOLD HER HOW UNHAPPY WE WERE WITH THE DVD AND THE PARTY. I SUGGESTED THEY GET FPC INVOLVED AND LET STEW DO THE VIDEO OR I WOULD NOT WASTE MY MONEY. I DON'T MIND GIVING MONEY TO A GOOD CAUSE BUT FOR A SUCK a$#$! DVD. SHE TOLD ME THAT SHE WOULD BRING IT UP AT THE NEXT MEETING?
I'M STILL GOING TO GO PARTY

TWIN SCREW-

Robert is that you? This is Scott- you stayed at my condo last year for the poker run. John and I are planning on going back again this year. Like you said- just not going back to the party afterwards.

OSS race is on the same weekend in Orange Beach, less than an hour from Destin. Wish these two organizations would compare notes. The same thing happened last year.

It was much better when FPC was involved and the race did not conflict......doubt we will be going at all this year.

At least they finally realized the Crab Island party needs to be the day after the run.
