Geeeesh -- We just got done with a very successful HAM ---

Now, KRVSA goes to work on our Freedom Ride. This event celebrates KRVSA's never waivering effort and committment to maintaining motor vessel access to the public over sovereign waterways. Protecting YOUR Freedom to Ride.

Our events just keep getting better, more family oriented and more FUN. Best advice is to secure your lodging ASAP. The three primary waterfront lodging choices are: Thomas Landings, Grape Hammock Fish Camp and Camp Mack River Resort. They will all sell out. Westgate River Ranch Resort is real close, it's a desitnation resort with a large menu of amenities -- and it's prime tourist season.

KRVSA will be serving a GREAT lunch at a bargain price for the whole crowd. We will have the incredible KRVSA Diamondback / Jurnigan / Sensenich / Ramlin sweepstakes boat on display and the winning ticket will maybe be sold that day. We will be asking all who attend to join KRVSA at $35.00 per year for your whole family.

We will be taking your donation to help offset the enormous medical expenses facing Vickie Cruz as a result of last weeks airoating tragedy.

Thought I was going. Just found out my Little Princess has a field trip to Sea World on Friday and won't be home until Midnight. Far be it for me to steal a 10 year-old's trip so I guess I'll have to put this year off. Maybe run up the weekend before or after.

Luckily enough, I own a site at River Ranch RV and keep my coach there. I've got premium accommodations anytime I want to go, whether I'm taking my airboat, bay boat or ATVs. I love that area! But you are so right. They grow up too fast. My oldest is heading off to college in the Fall and every time I look at her, I have a mini anxiety attack. I'm so going to miss her. For what it's worth, even though I'm a Gator, she has her heart set on being a Seminole. Doh! :lol: Maybe she'll choose her second choice and be a Golden Knight. ;)

If one were to drive up for the day. Where would I launch at, and about what time do things start up. Is there a central location for the festivities. I have a place in Okeechobee and may make the run up for the day. Any help would greatly be appreciated. Thank you.
