Respect the band? I hope you have a different group of dissrespectfull air boaters than are found at most functions now days. It won't be long before Hot Dog Island will be "off limits" to airboaters because of the trash that visit and is left behind by the trash that will be the end of airboating state wide. I wish the best of luck and times by all that attend. :thumbleft:

Well sorry to hear about your trash problems down there in the glades Gerald, but the flying eagle is kept spotless by the regulars that ride there every weekend.

You will never make a silk purse out of a sow's ear, Gerald. Pigs are everywhere. It's hard to find a trash pile in flying Eagle.

This is only the second time, as far as I know, than an outside concert of live music has been produced for airboaters only. First one was a year ago. Matt Farris and JB 550 / Jeff did a good job as entertainers for a great group of airboaters.

Things are Steppin Up this year. JT Curtis is a journeyman performer. He and his band, The Scoundrels, have toured with many major country stars. They are very good.

This isn't going to be an easy task -- but those involved with Citrus County Airboating are special people and will GetRDone. If you want to be a part of something while "airboating" that's different and special, Come.

Just cause it has never been done, doesn't mean it can't be done. This WILL be a Great time and an Airboating Milestone.

I plan to come down for this event with my mini airboat. Haven't been to the area. Where can I launch and ride wet to Hot Dog Island? Also, is there a rv campground nearby?

Got to say with the CCAA and the popularity of the CCA , word gets out and everyone has stepped up their efforts to " remove what you brung". There is always going to be a few , you just don't care , but in large most really make an effort to follow the airboaters code of ethics . We also have some very great volunteers in our airboating community that do regular clean ups of the major pits stops. Hot dog , Iraqi , Swimming hole, Outfall Canal,which includes trash removal, grass cutting , weed eating , bathroom patrol , whatever that is needed. A big Thank You to these individuals .

Gerald,
The first time I landed on hot dog I was disgusted by my fellow boaters! In the years past CCAA CCA and most everyone has made major improvements to MAN UP there game. I really hate events that trash an area worse than before the event happened, especially a cleanup event!
Over the years in some way and fashion that landing spot is now a nice place to land. I can only give credit to everyone involved and they know who they are but Citrus County is cleaning up and dumpers beware.

We're gonna put in at the ramp off Eden/Moccasin Slough in Inversness around 10am and come out to Hot Dog for the event. If any of the parties putting the show on need any help bringing equipment out or anything at all, PM me and I'll come earlier and take what I can. Looking forward to a good time.

Was at Hotdog a few days ago, it was pretty clean except for some beer cans .I don't know people leave them in the fire ring, I guess they are scared to leave them on the boat. Good luck with the event.

This is sponsored by the CCA, there will be many CCAA members present as we all are family in the airboating community. But this is a CCA event and they should get all the credit.

Wished I could take you that route , it's my wife's favorite area. Down the canal , trails to the Gap , across Moccasin Slough slide and down south toward Hotdog. Unfortunately , I have to work Saturday and can't trade due to death in their family . If you head south and work East, it's going to get you there, but it would be better to follow someone the first time.

You would head south on the river, cut in on trail to Race track(Iraqui) island follow main trail jump the road follow main trail this will put you at the gate turn right should see an American flag this is Hot dog I know these are vague, if the water is low could be a rough ride.

Not sure of water level right now , if low it's a long hard ride to jump the dike/road between Iraqi and Hotdog
