Default Finally

After trying to sell our house in the UK for a year it seems we finally have a moving date. If things go according to plan, we should be moving back to the US on April 1st after living in England for 19 years.

We will be in the Northern Neck of Viginia and I would very much like to get involved with powerboat racing as I have done here as both a competitor and official for many years. Also any information regarding Poker Runs and powerboat clubs would be greatly appreciated.

Please feel free to send me pm's, e-mails or post on the board.

Thanks

Ben

Ben (Starflite X) is a good guy, and will be missed here in the UK.

His passion for, & commitment to the sport of Powerboating is beyond question and he will be a huge asset to any team, club, or event organiser with which he works.

I'd like to wish him and his wife Miarka well in their new home back in the US, and trust he'll stay in touch across the pond so we can keep up to date.

PS. Ben, don't mention my name in North Carolina!

Welcome Back to this side of the pond!
Ben, my name is Chris Diamond. I own GeoGraphics, a custom paint and vinyl business targeted to the Performance Boat industry. I have done work for many of the big teams on the race circuits and lots of Poker run boats. Once you get settled in and decide on what you will do here, please let me know if there is anything I can do for you. You can visit the GeoGraphics web-site at www.coolgrafix.net . Thank you for your time and I look forward meeting you. The Poker run and race sites I know of are:
www.pokerrunsamerica.com
www.offshoresuperseries.com

Thank You, Chris

Thanks for the very kind words JF. They are very much appreciated.

We are probably a good 200 miles (well maybe 100miles) from NC so it should be relatively safe when you and Angela come to visit.

Waterfront. The land we bought three years ago is on a creek off of the Great Wicomico River. The nearest town is Heathsville.
