Rick,
Sounds great. Thanks for taking the time to set this up. Did you make a decision on where we are running to for lunch?

Dan,
I thought Racine would be good.
1. They have the long dock by the boat ramp that makes it easy for us to tie off and raft off. Plus it is easy place to hang out and talk with everyone.
2.There are 3 places within a short walking distance for lunch.
3. It is about a 40mile round trip run so the gas bill won't require month's of budgeting for.
4. If the water is a little rough it still can be run without feeling like you have a long way to go.

Hopefully everyone is ok with this.

Rick

My boat is too small for the run but it's Giggle Fest that weekend (grirls weekend) so I'll be free. I may just come down and see the nice rigs.

Rick, I am in but does the $15.00 cover the cost of the Cigars?

Lake Michigan will dictate the size of the boat. We have had 25' single engine boats on the runs. Sometimes the small boats are faster than the larger boats. Watch the weather then decide.

Elliot,
No on the cigars but I bet you could donate it to the fire pit when we have that going.

Regarding size of boat for the run. There are all sizes and as Dan indicated watch the weather and then decide. There are many days when we see 16-18' aluminum fishing boats out running. You need to be the one to decide what conditions you want to run in. It can be flat out there or it can be big water too.

Based on the comments I am getting on this run it sounds like a good turn out.

We have several people already signed up. To help with food plans, we need those of you that plan on comming to signup at the Chicago Powerboat Club WEB site at:
