Great poker run. The Taylor family did a fabulous job as well as those folks in Kingston and Brockville who seemed well organized and great hosts.

Glad to see the rule makers had the parts to DQ those that forgot what the pace boats were there for.

3 total, but I don't know what the other two were for or who. There was a nice looking Cigarette from Ocean Performace that passed me in the Brockville narrows like I was standing still, but I don't think a sponsor would get DQ.

I know My Way was running with Extreme Exibit @ 120+ with the OPP police helicopter chasing the two of them through the dead slow area. I'm sure this is what got EE dq'd but don't know about My Way.

EE was dq'd for leaving the prescott stop b4 the pace boat and ripping a$$ up the middle of the channel while fellow poker runners were still on their way to prescott. they had to swerve to avoid getting run over. this pi$$ed off a lot of people, both in and ot of the run...

Glad to see you all had a great time and as for the Chicago crew , try hanging with them all the time, and there is more where they came from. If most of us come up next year we won't stop at the bar we'll take over the town.

Yup, and all for what? To 'TRY' and make back to Kingston first? Why else would they have done that?

If the boat from Ocean Performance and was going to fast it was probably my fault. I did slow down at the spot you mentioned but maybe not soon enough. I was trying to be their guide all day!!
This was the first year I made it that far on the run and it was the first year for any of the crew from OP boat that did the run.
