TEXAN COMING BACK FOR THE UNITY WEEKEND AT OKEECHOBEE

Postby kwowens1963 » Tue Jul 07, 2015 5:18 pm

Once again i am driving and dragging my airboat down to southern Florida for the Unity weekened in a couple of weeks, I have been there a few times in the past couple years, I hope to see many old friends and meet many new ones. I will be getting married a few days prior in destin, and then on to the fun in Okeechobee...I promised my fiance a wedding on the beach, if we could drag the boat down to slide around after and she agreed. We should be arriving later that Friday afternoon, we plan to be pulling out of Destin by 8am that friday morning and heading south. Kerry

Sounds great. But as soon as I do that. Then somebody will say hey it's my birthday or anniversary and how about free dinners for us. Next thing you know I am spending several hundred dollars of my money. I wish I could but it's not feasible. This is a weekend to for airboats to gather and have a great weekend. But also it helps us raise the funds to pay for the lobbyist that the FAA has. To help fight for our rights.
