So when the WCF sells and you're boatless we'll be blasting through at 63.26 MPH in my boat. :)sphss :D

Any updates on this? I've heard that the city and the Coast Guard are having nothing to do with the water festival due to something that happened last year. :confused:

Chris will have to answer the specifics for that one...however I can tell you that absolutely nothing happened last year! There was no B2B festival last year. the year before, all was safe and great. although it was freakin' hot as hell.

Last year we were told that there was a conflict in schedules between this event and another, was that not the case?? Feel free to PM me if you dont want to start a bunch of crap in PRWs thread about all of this.

It conflicted with the money the Sacramento Convention and Visitors Bureau spent bringing the daVinci Experience to Sacramento.http://www.davinciexperience.info/sacramento.php

I'm just passing on what I heard from a good friend who is a member, as I am, of the C.G. Aux and they have nothing scheduled for a Water Festival or B2B for this year. Now, here is what his email said, word for word:

"I just learned that due to the Bridge to Bridge organization pissing off the city and CG last year, as well as high gas prices, that there is nothing scheduled so far for this year, and not likely to happen."

This person is the local CGAUX communications guy. That's the only reason I asked for an update.

Coast Guard Auxiliary???? Aren't these the same old geezers that take their 1986 Bayliner, put a banner on the side that says U.S.C.G. Aux., put an ice chest full of beer under the dash and cruise around asking people for a free safety check? I doubt there is any truth to it..

If you find one of these "OLD GEEZERS" including me, floating around with a CG banner on the side with a chest full of beer drinking it, I'd like to get the CF number. My jet boat ain't made by Bayliner. I guess we'll just have to wait and see. This is why I was asking for clarification.

bridge to bridge

I was told by someone at the visitor center that they would not interupt the DeVinci show. Could not justify shutting down the river and old sac for the water festival.

Chris says this year is just one day, Saturday.

Asked me and the boys to put on the jet boat water show.
