Nice looking collection of hardware!

Looks like I'm coming up a week too late. Look for me to be launching from the city ramp in Sandusky on Saturday morning 8/6, and around PIB until the 13th. Silver Formula 382.

Now that I know what GlassDave, Scott, and a few others look like, I'll know who to say "Hi" to. (Or stay away from???)

Todd, Chris did not have his boat he just stoped by to see the boats and shoot some pics, he had to hightail it to St Clair for the OSS Sunday races. It is a shame the poker run was the same weekend as the races, we would have liked to have done both, but logistically speaking it was not practical

See my pics from St. Clair in the racers milling area and GD thread.

Three incidents in turn three today.

Grumpy old men spun out and broke a gimbal after a washdown by Papa Dukes.

Popeyes Chicken flipped in turn three.

New Reliable Carriers flipped same place two laps later.

No injuries! Glad I did not have to do any work out there!

Out of 60 boats I only heard of a few that broke down.

After lunch the lake was laying down and we had some fun water

I came in 9th place and ended up with a 30amp splitter. The club does a great job making this one of the best runs in the area it was a fun weekend that went buy way too fast.

Thanks for the Pict's Chris

On behalf of the entire LEOPA Poker Run committee I would like to once again thank all of the participants for making this yet another GREAT poker run.

As you all know we can do all the planning in the world for an event, but without great people to participate it just wouldn't
be the great event that it was.

Thank you very much and I hope to see everyone next year or at one of the other great LEOPA events.
