I'm in. Probably bring 8-10. Possibly two other boats.

Always wanted to go to one. Is it a multiple day event or one day?
Do they have a website for it?
Thanks

I found it. Here's the registration page.

It says the event is from 10am until 4 on July 20. On the south side of the island.
I might have to spend the night before and rope off a THT section.

Any suggestions on where to stay at or near Ponce with a 35CC that will put me close to the Aquapalooza / DI action?

Are you wanting a lodging with a dock, or just somewhere to leave the boat in the water overnight?

Prefer to leave boat in the water but will settle on a place that has room for it on the trailer. I am also willing to run a a bit in order to use a decent ramp vs dealing with the "crowd" in order to launch close to DI.

If I were you I'd put the boat in at Halifax Harbor. Get a slip there or travel a mile or two north to Loggerhead and stay there. They have a great bar and restaurant.

Inlet Harbor and Down the Hatch are right on top of DI.

I like to run at least some to the destination. It's around 30 minutes to DI from Loggerhead.

BR... Call Inlet Harbor. They have overnight docking and their own personal ramp.

I'll be there, be nice to meet some fellow THT members. Look for a Kenner 21' bay boat with t-top & 150 opti

Thanks for the lodging info guys. I will check a few of these places out and see which one suits me best. Word is now getting around that Aquapalooza in Jax is canceled and it looks like some of those folks may come to Ponce on the 20th.

20th... from 10a till 4p.

Which means people will start on Friday and end sometime on Monday.

It's not cancelled, it's moved...to the Conch House , so it's basically cancelled.

Maybe I'll shoot down there instead, I've got lots of family in NSB.

I wonder how the Conch House plans to accommodate the size crowd that was at Ft Goerge last July + the new folks from St Augustine that will show?

It won't be as big. They were telling people to use the sandbar across from the docks but that's like this |...| big. It'll be a cluster for sure, I won't be caught anywhere near that this year. I know a lot of people with the same shared opinion.

Come down and join us at DI on the 20th. There is plenty of room there and it sounds like there may be a big THT party within the Aquapalooza festivities.
