Any word on the docking situation out in front of the big top. ?Originally posted by PhantomChaos
The 2004 SCOPE event calender is not not cast in stone yet. They normally don't release any dates until it is all settled. We do much more than just a poker run out here! BUT, the poker run is a HUGE event and tons of fun.
All the docks are handled with the registration so if you sign up, you don't need to reserve anything. We also block off rooms at the sponsor hotel, and you do have to reserve that (once it's squared away).
There are two courses, and it all starts from Long Beach. Once stays along the coast while the other is about 100 miles long and goes 32 miles of open ocean to Catalina Island. A typical course goes from Long Beach, Catalina, Newport, Las Alimitos, San Pedro then to Long Beach for the CASH!!!! Over $30,000 paid in CASH prizes last year!!! This, plus over $20K to charity (Junior Diabetes Research Foundation).
Keep an eye on the www.SCOPEinfo.com site. It's a great event for the whole family, and for the charity.
Contact info for SCOPE is here. http://www.scopeinfo.com/Contact-SCOPE.htm
Everyone is assigned a slip upon registration for the three days.
Last year there was a rumor that the docks where we normally tie up at, near the main tent area, were going to be unavailable this year. Has this changed?Originally posted by PhantomChaos
There is a ton of planning going on. There are also alternate locations in Long Beach being reviewed.
Wherever it is, whatever the cost, however long it takes to get there...Show up. Its worth it!!!
It gets bigger and better every year.
Just dont fall in the water!
Thank you very much guys. I know both guys will want to do the Cat. Island run. I keep an eye on the site for firmer dates. We will definitly be out there with one of the boats,but I am pretty sure that it will be more like 2. Thanks again, Steve.

The Poker Run card collection day is on the Sunday. Saturday would be a great day to schedule a run over to Catalina, moor the boats and enjoy the town of Avalon. A late afternoon return will give you the eye opening experience of how we do it on the Westsiiiiiiiid
Never got them, I did get a strong cold and a case of the "Long beach itch" for about two days.Matt, do you still have your water wings??
