I was planning on trying to make it since its one of my hometown events, but I don't get back from London until late Friday night. That doesn't leave me a whole lot of time to get to grand haven, put it on a trailer, borrow a tow rig, and get it back down to Indiana.

Sounds like you guys are going to have a lot of great hardware down there.

Have a great time and burn some fuel for me!

Only a handfull of spots left. If you don't get registered before saturday, there's a good chance you'll "miss the boat" Hope to see you all on friday.

Mark,

If you guys need admin help at the marina (staffing a booth, etc.), let me know. I could come by on Saturday for a while.

Jeff, thanks for the offer, but I believe that by saturday morning we'll have it all under controll. We are heading out about 9:30-9:45, right after the 9:00 drivers meeting.

Mark and I are bringing our boats down there today. We were asked by some of the local television networks if they could do an interview with a few of us. They want us to talk about our club, and view a few of the poker runner boats. So, we thought that we'd bring a V-bottom, and a Cat.

They will be airing the interview all week long on all the local networks. It sounded like they will be here on saturday too, to film all the boats in the event.
Who knows, they may even want to jump on a boat ot two, and do some filming from the run. They are really helping us alot, to publicize our event.

Neither theTrump casino hotel nor the Majestic star have any rooms available for the weekend. Seems that there is some sort of boating event taking place and the participants have all the rooms booked .

Here are a couple of alternatives about five minutes away

Courtyard (219) 845-6350
Fairfield (219) 845-6950
Residence Inn (219) 844-8440
