Have not heard any recent reports about this but something to be aware of.
We were hailed by BDF a couple of years ago and were advised we should have cleared at West End. We had left Lake Worth
and were heading to GTC to clear - our favorite POE. They were real nice about it and I replied in the affirmative.
