Deacon Boating Day

Deacs on Deck! Let’s plan for some summer fun and get together for a boat day on Saturday, July 22nd! The WAKEOrlando and WAKETampa/St.Petersburg Communities will combine to do a day on the water. We will plan to meet at 11 a.m. with the location TBD (The location will be decided once we know where everyone is coming from, possibly Ft. DeSoto or  more north in Tampa Bay on the St. Pete side.) In order to make this happen, we need boats and riders! Do you have a boat? Please register below. Don’t have a boat? We will try to match you with a ride. This will be on a first come, first served basis. Once we know who is attending, we will get back to you with more details. A $20 per rider fuel donation to your boat captain is recommended.
