Marc I think that it is BS they did not ask you about the pictures, instead of asking them to take them off, why not request they include a line like "photos curtesey of Smoke on the Water" and a link to your site. This way you get some extra PR and they get a chance to use your beautiful pictures. I think that would keep peace among you poker run promoters.
It is a shame to have it the very next weekend though
I am also curious about Boyne City. Is it right on Lake Charloviox, and is there a marina? It should be interesting to run a poker run down through the middle of the lake, I am assuming there would have to be several restrictions. Anybody hear how much$$ the link sure does not give much info.
