Total Web traffic has never been better John.

Perhaps posting it in the Gulf Coast section will get more response?

I do know some east coast guys are going. Check this out:

Re: Teams from tampa?

Hey John, I'm the guy sitting in traffic on SR60 the other morning.

FSDA State championships are April 24 (in Tarpon Springs). The top three FSDA teams qualify to represent FSDA in Nationals (FSDA is the only USOA council on the west coast of Florida). To qualify to represent FSDA, you have to be a member of an FSDA club (SPUC, TBSC, GCUH, Seals, etc.). It'd be a really long shot for you to get in with an FSDA team at this point.

If you go to the USOA website, there are links to all the councils. I believe you have to be a member of a council for 90 days (I could be wrong) prior to the tournament. You can check with the other councils to see if they need a team member or would mind having you represent them and put together your own team.

Hope that helps.
