If you move back to Knoxville you'll have to come up and see us on Cumberland.

Glad to hear it!

After my famous "Safety Article" last fall, we went to the next step and had a "safety Summit" meeting during the Miami Boat Show. At that meeting we formed a board of directors to take over Be-Safe and let it become it's own entity having nothing further to do with Extreme Boats Magazine.

The Be-Safe Board is currently:
Brad Schoewald - A career officer in the United States Coast Guard and Cigarette owner.
Bob Leach - President of Eliminator Powerboats.
Dave Hemmingson - President of Dave?s Custom Boats aka DCB.
Jim Nichols - Producer of LakeRacer Poker Runs on Lake Havasu.
Lenny Richileau - High performance marine insurance professional.

About 20 people in the high performance business helped to craft a document (that is still in draft form) as a guideline on how we thought a safe boating event should be run.

If you got to, click on "Safe Boating Practices" and download the document.

The only rules we could find were on the Poker Runs American and NJPPC web sites. We started with those and took it from there considering how speeds have increased since the Ten Commandments were written.

Be-Safe is nothing more than a place to store information. It's not going to organize Poker Runs and no one will be charged to use the document as a guideline for events. You can choose to use it or not. Be-Safe is simply offering the information if you want it.

This document was written by people who's livelihoods are incumbent on the continuation of high performance boating events. The reason we wrote the document and formed Be-Safe was an attempt to keep you safe and keep these event happening so we have something to photograph and talk about.

Please Be-Safe.
