Events For 2007 To Watch For
2007 looks to be an active season for gatherings for all of the members on the boards.
This is a reminder to look into the future and pay attention to what's being planned. This way, everyone knows what is happening and when. This will also help in asking for time off work for those that will need to do so.
1) April seems to be the starting month for the main events. JD-1 From the SD side of the board is having his first annual event at the Lake Of The Ozarks (Missouri).
Jet Draggin' April 20-23, 2007 Lake of the Ozarks
2) Stay tuned for a gathering from the Fountain Gang for the month of May possibly (To Be Determined). This will the the 2nd annual gathering put on by Tommy Jordan, Barry & Keith Miller. The first gathering was on the NC / VA line at Kerr Lake and had about 25 ski's show. This was a huge success. This will be a gathering that will test just how long you can go on a full tank of fuel-be prepared to ride 200-300 miles in two days time, and also be prepared to ride until the sun is long gone. This is a fun ride to do, but you better be pre-pared because this isn't a place to do radar runs all day then put the boats up. Location & Date will be determined by the Fountain gang at a later time.
Fountain Eastern Seaboard Gathering / May 2007 (TBA)
3) And of course June, which is the most popular event/gathering to date in the non-sanctioned arena. The 3rd Annual Mudbug Nationals hosted by Jerry Gaddis "Green Hulk". Expect to see well over 200 ski's this year and also to see the fastest PWC on planet Earth all in one place.
Mudbug 3 / June 7-10 / Morgan City, LA
4) Pretty quiet (as of now) until the first week of September when the APBA Watercross Nationals is held in Nashville, TN. Many of the board members went to this for the Radar shootouts and to see the pro's race as well. Not sure if this will continue to be in Nashville or if it will be at the same time as before. So stay tuned.
APBA Watercross Nationals / September 2007 ?? / Nashville, TN
5) World Finals / Lake Havasu, AZ / October- the grand daddy of all sanctioned events in the world brining in thousands and thousands of people and hundreds of racers from all over the world.
Date TBA / October 2007 / World Finals - Lake Havasu, AZ
6) November - Annual Destin, FL gathering in which many members like to attend and also some of the fastest ski's in the world usually show as well for a weekend of racing, riding, and hanging out.
Destin, FL / November 2007 / Official Dates TBA

Is JetEd doing his Tennessee River Run this year? That was 700 miles of state of the art riding, accomodations and fellowship last year... Ed is the host of hosts.
