Question What's up in Mexico with GR Tarr from Florida and Francisco Loffredi from Brazil?

I saw Tim Hatler at the Blue Wild a few weeks ago. The dates of the 2014 World Cup have been set for July 7-13.

Check out the website: http://www.palapasventana.com/

I hear rumors that GR Tarr from Florida and Francisco Loffredi from Brazil have some intense competition on their agendas for this event.

Should be interesting to say the least.
