Pete, see if you can reach out to the local poker run club for some help. As for the turn boats, you might need to take a walk down the dock on a weekend.

Been there, done it for many years, it ain't easy building a new volunteer base.

Since I'm on a roll, I'll share this with you guys.

We all know EXACTLY what is going on within offshore because we are so close to the source. Sponsors and fans aren't involved and don't follow things the way we do. All they know is what they see on the race course. And they've seen low boat counts and some unpaid bills once the race producers left town. It's going to take a year of two of producing excellent events to bring sponsors back to the sport.

Behave, act professionally, respect and thank the race officials and volunteers and don't forget to tip the bartenders.....

Ok, I'm done, I feel better now....... Have a safe and competitive season, regardless of where you choose to race.

You guys owe Pete and every race volunteer an apology for dumping on his thread. If you don't want to help him, keep your thoughts to yourself.
From another race producer, AMEN.
