Default Big Dick's run at the Shootout.

(If the mods feel like this thread needs to be moved feel free to do so)

It's pushing the middle of July and I haven't seen any mention of the Big Dick's run yet. It's only a few weeks away so I thought it might be time to get the ball rolling.

I am boatless again this year but have managed to mooch a ride off of a very generous member. I'm not going away that easy.

Does anyone plan on doing the run again this year? Is it just an unspoken event that we assume will happen regardless? Or am I the one that needs to make some calls and start something?

Gimme some feedback.

Buck

I'm in for the run. I wonder who Buck is riding with ?? Anyways let's get a list going like years past so we know how many to tell Big Dick's to expect so we can get decent service.
I guess we'll meet at the Ledges at 10:30 am and leave at 11:00 am sharp.

If anybody has any changes then speak up !!!

Dave

Given the amount of boats we had on the run last year I can't help but think there will be more reponse on this topic.

Still waiting on the Grand Lake crew to chime in. How about it Bubba, Brandon......?????

I'm in for sure. Just make sure those fools at the restaraunt have more than one staff member this year. Buck maybe I can give you that ride finally! (if the noise police don't punt me first )

I'd be honored Brandon. I've never had the opportunity to ride in a boat like that. The experience would mean a lot to me.

I will be more than happy to make calls far in advance to the run. I rough head count would be nice for their sake.

Let's see if this thread gets going. If so, I'll start another one asking for names, numbers, and possible boat pics.

Keep em coming peeps.

Buck

last year we had probably 60 boats by the end. I'll call BJ at big dicks and let him know we are coming. Lets all meet Friday in no wake area at ledges at 10-10:30. We will probably have 5-6 nortechs going along with the chief Mr. Sobo. I'll start spreading the word around at the lake we should have alot more boats this year. I'll also posts some flyers at all the establishments Loto shootout fun run 2005.

Waterfoul usually headed this run up. Unfortunately, neither of us will be making the trip this year.

It would appear that Buck is the new man in charge, so if you have any questions P.M. him. I will be the backup since I always seem to be the cruise director on my home waters !!

P.S. My cell number is 847-902-9702
