I am for a getting drunk around the fire and watching the girls get nekked club,,, lol

Peaceful gatherings only,,, NO GUNPLAY,,, ;-)

All joking aside, YES I think we need a club for us Ga/Fla/Ala/SC/NC boys,,, And anybody else that wants to join,,,

With my work schedule all I will probably be able to do is send money and conversations online,,,

There are several guys who have the time to get this started, I wish I was one of them,,,

But retirement is out the window for me now with my 7 month old Son,,, I will die behind the wheel I reckon,,, lol

My vote is YES,,,

Slide safe my friends,,,

Good luck with the club. :salute: Let me know if you get one going. I would be all about doing something. I have attempted and didn't have much luck. We even had a little clean up event. Had more mud motors than airboats... :scratch: Seems that everyone thinks we can't loose our rights I reckon.
If my 2¢ counts for anything I would say that one of the main goals should be to teach the new boat owners to respect others, realize that we ARE outnumbered and people (in general) dislike us. I see more and more boats showing up around here and more and more stories of people (airboaters) doing stupid sh*t and pissing the wrong people off. I have seen it numerous times myself. Even found myself apologizing for other people.
I think the main hurdle with a club here is that we are all scattered out so far. If we could get something going it would be cool to do a ride/meeting once per month or something. I think anything more often and not as many people would be able to make it.
We have even been known to work against each other in some cases...doesn't make sense I know but airboaters are some of the most "clique-ish" and dramatic people you'll meet.
I say go for it!It may start slow but who knows...hopefully one day it will pick up some steam. In general getting a bunch of us together is like herding cats but with some determination and hard work it can be done. Let me know if I can help! :thumbleft:

That's how it starts , just a bunch riding together sharing good times and enjoying what Nature has to offer. Soon or later, there will be a challenge to your riding and you will need Unity in the airboat community there to stand up for your rights, thats where the club is so important. It will give you a common voice , representation for your rights. Too many other groups think their opinions are the only ones that matter , and are quick to let the powers in control know this. Without the Airboating voice changes happen without any opposition . Never met a politician that wasn't concerned with poll numbers. Numbers speak volumes . Get a club started , the CCAA started with 7 guys in a garage on a Thursday night , and double the following month , and continues to grow.GOOD LUCK

Wasn't easy here either, took some special people working hard for a lot of years. In the beginning , we were viewed as outlaws and troublemakers and people didn't want to join because they would be viewed that way . They put a curfew on us and restricted where they choose to let us ride. A battle had to be fought and thus an Alliance was formed ,not a club . A lot of water has flowed under that bridge now, and today , its viewed as a family club and we have several county and state politicians in our numbers.

Would love to have you join the CCAA , here in Citrus. But would also love to see you protect your own backyard , nothing like being able to ride at home. I have a business office/warehouse in Midway. You get something started and I'll get some of the Krew here to come up and have a membership drive/ride with y'all one weekend.
