    Cool Underwater Music Festival, July 28th, Gig Harbor

    Guess this needs to get mentioned, also. The 3rd annual UMF is happening July 28th in the waters near Gig Harbor, (Cutt's Island). The event is raising money for the local Tacoma area CrimeStoppers chapter. Check out the facebook page for more info and to help support them. This is one heck of a great time. Like Seafair, only music instead of racing. There will be plenty of people to ride and cruise with. Just, please, be responsible. There are law enforcement patrols plying the waters around the festival.

    So, an update. They are in dire need of donations due to some stupid new regulations. They need to raise a ton of money in the next short period (10 days) or this event won't be happening on the water this year. PLEASE send them a donation so we can have this unique event to attend with our pwcs. Thanks. Underwater Music Festival

    They aren't saying much about the regulations, but the permit providers (state, county, CG, etc) are saying that they need $10k in the next 10 days. These are the permit costs and insurance. This doesn't even go into the CrimeStoppers account!! Crazy that it costs $10k to want to raise money for a charitable cause. . . Please help out and send this along to any companies that may help out. It is tax deductible. . .

    No, they had some unnamed sponsors step up at the last minute and I think they covered the bill. They haven't announced any change of venue on their Facebook page (http://www.facebook.com/UnderwaterMusicFest) or here (http://setlistmusic.com/underwater-music-festival/)

    BTW, if anyone's curious about the turnout last year, there was a completely unplanned aerial photo update for Google Maps during last year's show!

    Music barge is at the upper right of the photo. Zoom in and you can see that the bigger "white smudges" are actually dozens of boats barged together!

    It can only get BIGGER than last year!

    I see your boat in there, Sam!! Too bad it's looking like this will be the last one on the water. Let's all come out and show our love for one last time!!!

    So, who wants to plan a meet up time for all of us to launch and ride over together? Or, at least, a roll call of participants.
