Ron,
KW...........my personal view of the 1st day.
No pictures.........someone else can take that job on.

Parade was great.......I stopped counting) and writing down names, (after 39) we were having too much fun. Picture Augie yelling out the truck "Is this great, or what?"

Drivers meeting.........between 57/60 answering roll call with 7 "on the way" call ins for tonight.........and we passed at least 8 more boats on the way back to Marathon. More coming in tomorrow.
Interesting entry list.
After tonight I won't have access so someone better find Klaatu.........I didn't.
Good luck to anyone racing anywhere this week. Pat d

And Klaatu now has just left the SBI national awards in the pits in Key West and him and I are in an internet cafe for a "book reading club" event in KW and then on our way to the Muscle party at Ricks!

By the way, he says to say "we won again!"

(also, Klaatu would like to advise everyone that he has not been on here in 5 weeks and others are posting for him)
