Looking forward to getting together Ray, hopefully some other VELOCITY owners will show up. It would be nice if we could get a large group like we used to, when we would go to Solamons, Chop Tank, Red Eyes, and many other places. Kinda seems like people are not into getting together anymore.:evilb: Ok guys and gals lets get together.

If you plan to come by water let me know we have boats coming in from different parts of the bay you can cruise over with . Or they have a ramp that I am hoping they will let use if you want to trailer . Water on that part of the bay is usally fun for boats of all sizes . Hope you can make it . If I can help let me know . :boat:

We are probably staying on the hook for saturday night. But we are in. What kind of run are we looking at and what's the game plan ? Run around saturday or sunday or both . Just asking because we have to line up the Puppy setter's. Curt P.S.is it only gonna be like the 3 of us? because if it is I'll anty up gas money and ride on the bus instead of taking the slow ride

notda1
06-01-2009, 07:39 PM
Curt you are welcome with or without the boat , I think I have 2 or 3 seats open . Have to confirm my count this week . Let me know if you want to jump aboard . Open to suggestions as to where we might cruise and when ( maybe rock hall or middle river ) . My only plan was to see the poker runners come through on saturday if it works out . :flag::flag::flag:

06-01-2009, 09:48 PM
Cool deal. I just don't want to be uncle catch up all day if only a couple boats are going .Keep us posted we are bringing the boat and staying but if everyone is gonna be out blasting around and you have room i'll pick up some fuel(for the bus) for Stacy and I

notda1
06-02-2009, 07:36 AM
You don't have to worry about playing catch up , I will try and stay in a group . Not looking to get crazy , just hoping to have enough fuel to get home . I think there is 89 at great oak but , for 93 I have to go up middle river , stoney creek , or the bay bridge marina . :sport009::sport009::sport009:

I wanted to wish everyone a great time and hope that the weather cooperates! Ray has put together just the right kind of Velocity venue - a great location for time on the water and after the boats are tied up. I really like the idea of keeping things casual with no schedules nor destinations. Go where you want to go and when you want to go there or just hang out at the docks if you're so inclined. The essential element is getting the Velocity people together - great times result from there.

I wish I could make it but it's not going work for me as I'll be moving into my NJ shore rental that afternoon with wife, mother-in-law, dog and the 22'. Have a great time, be safe on the water and thank Ray for pulling this together. Hopefully we can do this again later this summer!

I was going to suggest we head out in the afternoon to one of the many spots that are close by . Options include Rockhall , middle river . stoney creek ,ect , open to suggestions . Would like the people from this area to help out on this one . Looking from input on as a group to pick the destination . Might be worth hanging around the marina from 12-3 . The Rock the bay poker run will be having lunch there . Should be interesting to see some of that hardware . Weather is looking good and hoping for a great time . :circle:

Just wanted to drop in and thank everybody for the fun and hospitality......... We traveled down from Ohio on Thursday evening and had a great time on the bay Friday/Saturday. It was a wonderful to see all of the hardware for the poker run, enjoy the bars/beaches of the bay, but even better to catch up and speak with a fantastic group of guys! The Velocity owners and crew that we met at Mears great Oak Landing were a first-class group of folks!

We all had a great time and the trip went smoothly.

I got some video (a little choppy but I'll put up the best parts) and some pics I'll try and get up tonight.
