Morning Ray, here it is off the Sunnylandweb site. http://www.acbs-sunnyland.com/index.php?id=160Later Tommy in Tampa


Each year during our planning process we review the results and surveys from the previous year and we have worked hard to solve some of the issues associated with growth. This year, something different happened prior to the Mount Dora Show; a new group of antique race boat enthusiasts formed a new organization called the "Classic Race Boat Association" (CRA). This group needed a place with open spaces and an un-obscured water front where they could set up a race course and run their Classic Race Boats just like they did years ago. The CRA met with the city of Tavares and stated their requirements and asked if the city would host their first annual event.


After several meetings, the city gave the CRA a green light and they started their planning process. Their event would be the week before the Mount Dora show and was designed to flow the CRA boaters to our event. The 1st annual CRA show was a big success and they had a huge crowd that traveled from all parts of the US. One of the big unlimited hydroplanes came all the way from Seattle. Our annual show followed suit and after our event, the CRA leadership asked the Mount Dora Boat Show leadership if they would consider consolidating the events and have two back-to-back weekends of vintage boating. The two groups agreed to meet independent of any city leadership and exploit this possibility. After several meetings and numerous walks around Gilbert Park and Wooten Park, it was determined that there was a much larger piece of ground available in Wooten Park and the Lake Shore could accommodate a larger number of boats. After it was determined that there was adequate space available, both groups met with the city planners of Tavares. During this meeting, there were many questions asked from all sides and one key question was asked by Tavares; namely “What would you need to move the show from Dora to Tavares?” The answer was enough floating docks for 140 boats, an adequate and usable launch ramp and a fence to wrap around the area so we could charge admission...... </font>

Tommy, So how do we (Amphicar Club) get involved in this? Do we go
as a group (rent our own spot like in Mt. Dora) or as individuals &
they place us together as a group? Ray
