What is the skinny on this event? I did not know that there was something this cool so close to me. Is camping available? Just show up, preregister? What do you need for safety gear to run a boat? I am thinking about dragging my camper and boat down with a bunch of buddies.

I just talked with Matt on the phone. What a nice guy! Sounds like a really cool and fun event. I am going to be bringing my jet, sounds like some buddies are going to come with and maybe bring their boats as well. One has a hydrostream and the other has a baja.

I have never raced before, so this should be interesting. I think I am going to put a throttle stop on my boat this weekend to slow it down a bunch.
