Everyone should check out the Orlando's event. They have some really great prizes including the grand prize of $250 cash. They have weekend stays, teeth whitening, gift cards to restaurants, riva and more. There are going to be many winners including the kids at the charity. If you can make it make sure you register early so you can save money on the registration.
I will find out how long the ride is soon, they have just mapped out the route. I am sure they are keeping short enough for one tank trip.

We've mapped out the ride with five great stops. It's about 50 miles of great riding. Covering three lakes and lots of WOT! We are also planning a ride the afternoon before, for those of you coming in from out of town. We also have made arrangements with the Holiday Inn Express on Hwy 441 in Tavares (just around the corner) for an OWR discounted rate.
It should be a good time for a great cause....
Go to www.watercraftriders.com for info on ramps etc...and to register!

Last day for the discounted sign up but you can always sign up at the event also. Don't miss out on a chance at some of the great prizes they have been acquiring. There are many wonderful chances to win, some of them are better than the actual winners hand prizes. Hope to see everyone out there to support this event for a great cause. Go to www.watercraftriders.com and check it out if you haven't yet.
