If somebody can't see the pics I posted over at the other site, you might have to be registered and logged in. If you are, then I am not sure what's wrong.

I live about 1 m ile north of the 120 bridge and was sorry I missed the run. Had I been on the boat I would have prob been screaming faster. It was just my observationn and what I had heard in the local bars after this week.

It is my suggestion the club stay off the river for these runs. There was supposed to be a 50 mph speed limit to keep the local complaints to a minimum. I have heard from a lot of local people who thought the big, fast, loud boats were going too fast. Where the heck was the pace boat??????? One guy even spun out he was going so fast on the lower river.
