Whats the speed of the run, or there separate groups for us slow guys? ? I am thinking about the run, sounds like a great time for even better cause. But have a wakeboard boat so not gonna be fast.
There is going to be a group of boats in town friday morning. The plan is to leave the hotel at 1 pm and and take the St Johns down to Dunns creek, into Cresent lake and have lunch at 3 Bananas . The run is about 32 miles each way and is very scenic. This run can be made with any size boat and speed is not an issue. This route has a lot of tight turns so everyone stays close together.
Join in the fun friday and lets kick The Toys for Tots run off with a great lunch and some boating fun.
I hope we can make it, I'm in Camp Lejune right now working for the USMC. I think we will bring the hydrostream.
Everything is for sale @ a certain $$
Bill when I ran with you guys a few years ago, I tried running hard going down to Cresent City and it was not good, can back at about 35mph and it made for a fun trip. Hope to see everybody there this year.
Ya wfo up the creek is not a good idea! been there done that but its fun!!
