The key word here is “official”. For many of us, the huge Lake Dora event starts days if not weeks earlier. In fact in a way, its already begun. With the big countdown we are already headed there in our frozen minds.
Paul and Karen Harrison are already down there, totally ruining a perfectly good story on if they will break down on the way. Come on. We need stories and that’s always a sure winner. But we must all evolve I suppose.
We will be there on Wednesday, so its really around 35 days for us, and if you add in the drive, 34, and if you take into consideration packing and setting up the drive, 30. So, its even closer. If you have never been. GO! This event is a no brainier. Its all in the water fun, fun low key judging, and everyone is there and pumped up to be doing what they love best.
Hotels are booking up, which is a good sign and says this will be a well attended show. The over 600 members of the Sunnyland Chapter go all out and it shows. Right now we are planning to have a welcome and thank you get together at the train station on Thursday Night.
This is always just a fun gathering before the storm. Stay tuned for that update. Its going to be more low key than years past. Last years was an open house at the Antique Boat Center in Eustis. By the way, a fantastic place to go visit if you get into town early.
