The heros will be at both ramps. 2a has a unique location that people from all directions aren't to far. Most the East coast guys will use lox but a lot of West coast answer South End will use stub. I think the Friday before we will et together and swap waivers maps food drinks fuel. As far as donations I know Mr Motes uses a lot of fuel prepping for this. I can swing food and drink just help him with fuel. Getting gatorades again if that's cool with everyone

I will be traveling down from Fort Myers, does anyone have a physical address to the ramps and suggestion as to which one I show up to? I'll be bringing 2 people, one of them served in the navy. If I have an open seat I'd be happy to take another rider, but I wont know until the day gets here. Thanks for any information.
Stub canal is closest ramp for you, I-75 across the alley to hwy-27 go north a few miles.The ramp is past sawgrass rec park on the right (east side). Real easy to find.

Hi "firefight-n"; bring a cot and stay here at Old Glory. I'll find a corner for you. Just don't be making any moves on my women. :lol: :lol: :lol:

If I was gonna guess 35-45 boats roughly 30 riders actual show up. But I said that last yr and we had like 60 boats and 50 riders plus captains. If too many boats show up GREAT. If too many riders show up we can work that out too. There isn't hard set anything to be able to do anything. I've got all the faith that air boaters will stand up for a just cause. This is only a good thing.

People need to remember as for some of these guys its rough on a day to day basis. We are asking groups with known disabilities. Its why its so hard to put a number out. Then there's air boaters boats break families cone first and finances might not allow. Either way though it'll be good. Too many riders mean these people are truly interested. Too many boats and the riders we do have can have some room. Win win

Hey everyone, i'm sure this was covered earlier however, other than picking people up to go riding and meet back at Gerold's, do we need to bring food to cook or money? What should we bring?
Thanks,
Spencer :rebel: :old_glory:

Drinks and snacks are needed. No ones asking for money. If there was any that changed hands it'd go to old glory as a standard donation seperate from event

I should clarify. We will have a full meal at lunch time at ol glory. There will be chicken hot dogs frog legs hips and more for lunch and general eating. We will have drinks at ol glory as well for everyone. However captains should keep "comfort" items with them. Meaning a small cooler with specific sodas or snacks you like. We won't be giving out beer. You know comfort items. Please ask any questions so this can go as smooth as possible
