Okay, here we go, yesterdays story on the Lake Dora show got me some behind the scenes emails. NO DOCKS YET? What the hell? That pretty much was the tone of the messages. No one is impolite enough to mention it in the comment section. But it is out there. Since the hurricane the docks at the Lake Dora event at Tavares, were destroyed, and it appears that they wont be rebuilt. For 2 years? Now say what you want, the city planners? The fact that the hurricane trashed docks all over the state? I am certain there is a reason. A good reason. Maybe part of a larger plan, which can be done all at once. But regardless of why, the real question is. Is the Show worth going to with out a boat? or have a land display?
Last year the numbers were down. And many people came to support the club. One heck of a club BTW. Now. Here is the shocker. I had more fun last year than years before. I parked our smaller boat on the beach right behind the tent, and there was a ton of folks having fun. After all, its 80 in March. Rides to the Palm gardens were common place and folks just were having fun. It also wasn’t a mad house and you had a good opportunity to really appreciate friends and boats.
Don’t think for one nano second that Terry Fiest and the team there isn’t going all out to make sure its a fun time. So, this year. Come. Bring an open mind, and you will have fun. We are either planning on the new Photo Boat or Stinky. Last year the Sunnyland gang put in some temprary docks which were fantastic. So now we have talked about the pachyderm in the room!
