Gainesville, FL

Every trip to Florida is a real treat, and this year was no different! In addition to our usual Student & Non-student Divisions, we included a Youth Division to start things off. And we think the kids are gonna be alright...

Students and non-students of all ages came from every part of the state, as usual. Rippers made road trips from near & far, and the locals of Gainesville came out in numbers.

We were glad to have Monster Energy hooking up beverages for everyone! Also, Southeast Car Agency of Gainesville showed love & support as a partner in the event. Major Thanks!

The one & only Billy Rohan hosted and MCed all day long! It was a real treat to have local legend Dante DeBose, UF Club President Noah Amico, and former UF students Derek Evans & Brandon Cole judging the contest.
