Smitty -

the only thing in question was the wording. I think most teams figured, myself included, that the standard OPA purse applied to the Ocean City, Patchogue and Point Pleasant venues and the triple crown was a seperate deal. We now understand that it is not. This may or may not affect certain teams from showing we'll have to see how it pans out. People need to remember that racing is privledge not a right. The OPA has gone to great lengths to better our sport and the support is behind you guys 110%. There was just some miscommunication on this topic. Maybe now that the season is less than two months away we need to start the conference calls again????

If we miss Ocean City then Patchogue and Point Pleasant is for bragging rights only...but that's worth the drive right there!!! you eastcoasters got nothin' on the Michigan crowd

Rick, which boat are you running in which class? In the race you may not be able to make? Assuming the whole Triple Points deal is based on boat and not crew, maybe I can run the boat for you. if running order of classes don't clash.

Maybe I could just drive your boat for you while you're doing your prop testing

Rick. I'll make you a deal. You spend your $ and come to Ocean city. In return I will spend my money and go to St Clair. Whatever position I place, I will give you my Prize money. How's that for gambling.

Thatís fair, but I also donít want you to feel like you need to carry another team financially to a race. You do a more than most people realize, I donít want to be the straw the broke the camel back, so to speak.
