Hi Kara-That probably is a pretty interesting race to watch. Probably kind of slow though but then again I don't have a clue how fast a lobster can move. <SMILE>

Hey Y'all -   thanks for your comments.   To answer some of your questions....

Yes - I'll take pics and post them over the weekend!

We are expecting between 8,000 and 10,000 people. !!!

There will be 14 lobster races in heats of five with the first set of seven races beginning at 7:30 p.m. and the second set starting at 8:15 p.m.

"The winners go back to the ocean and the losers get the melted butter award," said Kara Flanders, a race organizer.

 

---did you notice my friend Kara and I have the same name, lol.   It is really weird when she calls here -  'hi Kara, this is Kara...'  lol -  too funny.

I don't suppose you have any Lobster Race photo's for us do you? I cannot believe 8,0000 t0o 10,000 people will show up for this race. We have "Wiener Dog" races every year for Cinco De Mayo but only get about 100 or so to show up! LOL!
