This a great event. I volunteer my boat and myself every year. It is such a blast to give these kids and there parents who have never been on an airboat their first ride. The first picture the young man sitting right in front of me was in a wheel chair. They had to carry him on my boat. The secong picture shows everybody gets to ride.

If anyone's interested in learning more about FSCA here's their website like always FSCA could use sponsorship for this event it's FSCA only fundraiser of the year they do multiple cleanups and pretty much participate in all government run meetings to make sure you're hunting and airboating rights have a voice.

Not to mention they are the leader when it comes to putting Youth in the woods, which is the next generation our future and I hope that the tradition carries on.

Here's the website check it out for yourself

Great pic Bob. Brandon was the boy in the wheel chair and had great time. Every time I see him he always ask about going to Youth Day again and shooting and riding air boat and buggy.

When people state that i've lived here all my life and never knew this area was out here, we know we are doing something great. Kids on board my buggy throw their arms up in the air :cheers: like they were out Micky world although we're only going 5 mph through a mud puddle i have to laugh. It's a great way to get your kids out of the house and into real nature. See y'all at YOUTH DAY! :rebel:

Yes Pat I will be there giving rides with my boat. You will get to see the new motor and all the other work I did to boat.

I like the new paint and oh yeah that motor seem to push ok. Iam not sure the other passengers were ready for that kind of ride! Iam blown away how a 18 ft boat can run like a sportscar. Thanks see you in the swamp my friend.

Thanks to over 150 volunteers who made this happen for 873 participants that paid at the gate, it was also nice to see the sponsors enjoy the day with their families, coworkers, and friends. This years event brought in around 1000 participants who got to experience the outdoors and what all it has to offer.

Come join in and learn more about an awesome organization at tonight's meeting, FSCA Regular meeting at the FWC commission office on Northlake Boulevard starting at 7:30 PM.

Thanks again everyone who made this event successful
