Sleepy Hollow joins Turner Camp

Post by Deano » Sat Jan 12, 2019 8:18 am

on the list airboat accessible venues that burned down.

Just saw the tail end of this on the news, haven't found anymore on line yet.
I hope (against the odds) that they don't end up like Turner's, and find themselves beyond building code challenged to make a comeback. This really bites.

Getting to be slim pickins in these parts.

It's really sad that one person's criminal act can cause so much grief. Sleepy Hollow was an awesome gathering point for all... airboats, pontoons, motorcycles and tourist. The community's cleanup efforts on Saturday and Sunday were amazing. Kudo's to ALL that came together !.

For those who maybe don't know some of the details the bar was "open for business" with an estimated 20 persons inside when an arsonist set the place on fire with them inside. Evidently there had been a prior incident there in which an individual had shouted threats.

Serious shizt right there my friends!
