HAIRSPRAY, The Broadway Musical

It's 1962 in Baltimore, and the lovable plus-size teen, Tracy Turnblad, has only one desire – to dance on the popular "Corny Collins Show." When her dream comes true, Tracy is transformed from social outcast to sudden star. She must use her newfound power to dethrone the reigning Teen Queen, win the affections of heartthrob, Link Larkin, and integrate a TV network... all without denting her 'do!

Winner of 8 Tony-Awards, including Best Musical, HAIRSPRAY includes some of Broadway's biggest hits, such as Good Morning Baltimore, I Can Hear The Bells and You Can’t Stop The Beat.

So put on your dancing shoes and jump back to the 60's with us at the Seminole Theatre.

This year's event will be open to everyone to participate in a "poker" paddle race for kayaks and stand-up paddle boards in beautiful Islamorada. Essentially a "poker run" is an excuse to get together, have some fun and raise money and awareness for a great cause. The approximately 4 mile route will consist of five stops in mainly shallow water, including two sandbars, making a loop back to Postcard Inn Beach. At each stop, the participant will be dealt a random card and the winner of the event is the participant who makes the best five card poker hand. We will have a closer run along the coast in case of windy conditions.

This years Poker Paddle will be supporting Children of Wounded Warriors a local, South Florida recognized 501(c)(3) charitable organization dedicated to the children of...

We're back again this year with the biggest and best Triple Crown yet. Still a 3 event series format but we'll be racing all 3 events on 1 day. The fees are lower but the party is going to be bigger. Come out and have a fun day in the Keys. More details to follow. Mark your calendars and get ready to paddle yourself to a better place.

Here is the way it is going to work:

There will be 3 categories of racing: Beginners (trophies) - no raceboards, Short course (trophies) - raceboards recommended and Long course (money prizes) - raceboards recommended. Drafting will be open to all racers regardless of board or gender. We will not be recognizing board legnths. The only categories we will be recognizing is distance and gender.

Beginner class - approx 2 mile race - NO raceboards - this is a beginner/development class only. It is for all the glory and maybe a trophy.

The Triple Crown has always been about 3 attributes of paddleboarding: Speed, Skill, and Stamina therefore, we will keep those 3 attributes in mind when...
