We will be out with a small group as usual. Maybe head back up the Gully's or Torches for lunch afterwards.
End the evening at Chrystal Bay most likely.

Your right, arrest everyone on the water between Liberty Landing Marina and Havestraw that dares be on the water at the same time as the Poker-runners...

Actually the thieves are the guys putting the poker run on,, 200 boats at 550.00 a pop = 110,000 and only a 5K pot... But then again, burgers, hot-dogs and slips cost a lot of money, right ??...
