If there's a more original surfing competition than "Regular Joe," it's hard to imagine what it might be. Touted as a "Surf Contest for the Rest of Us," it's a two day bash for dedicated recreational surfers that delivers all the cachet of a pro surf contest, but without the added pressure of taking on pro surfers. Staged at Sebastian Inlet's famed First Peak, Regular Joe is held smack in the middle of Florida's hurricane season.

Project Suds America, a 501[3] c charitable organization assisting homeless, low income and no income U.S. military veterans with basic needs (e.g., shelter, food, clothing, transportation, personal items and laundry) will be the beneficiary of a fundraising event, “A Night of Hollywood”, featuring music, live entertainment, raffles, a gift auction, and more.

This fundraising event takes place on Sunday, September 18th at 7pm at Cold Keg Nightclub in Melbourne.

The pressure is on for a first-of-its-kind mission launching from Cape Canaveral on Thursday. Sitting about a mile from the launch pad where a Falcon 9 rocket exploded this past week, the OSIRIS-REx probe will launch Thursday night atop an Atlas V rocket headed for an asteroid that could contain some of the oldest organic material in the solar system.
