PADDLE BOARD RACES
The 2016 Orange Bowl Paddle Championship
I went for the big noon race between the City of Miami and Key Biscayne but I couldn't exactly figure out who won. I stayed for the fun. Adventure Sports was giving free rides and I took advantage thank you Kent.
City of Miami Commissioners Ken Russel, Francis Suarez and Frank Carollo participated. Our X man was there but County Commissioner Xavier Suarez stayed on shore. He had been a longtime advocate for water sports in Miami, I remember Commissioner Suarez coming to our windsurfing event when he was Mayor of the City.
Josh Collins, an injured Army veteran, was there and he got a warm response from the crowd. He arrived on his Board with two police boats. He is trying to set the world paddling record. He expects to finish with 3,500 on the board. The City and the State of Florida both recognized him with proclamations and he got money from two groups. Josh is doing it to bring focus on the plight of wounded vets.

THE AWESOME AIR SHOW IN FORT LAUDERDALEI went on Mother's Day. They said the crowd was off from the day before. But, I can't believe that you could put any more people on a beach.
|There was not a stitch of sand to get down to the water. I had to walk through tents of people sitting there and under umbrellas. This is only looking North. South was just as crowded.|

|I asked by Will "D-Rail" Andreotta how long I would be vomiting if I was flying with him. He said once I started I wouldn't stop. I therefore decided not to ask for a ride.|
Watch the damn video it is only 9 seconds. It is our $400 Billion fighter jet that never worked!!!! It has a nice sound.
