Default Lake Lanier deaths

Reports are still coming in. I think 2-3 people died on the lake this weekend. Crazy huh?

Uh-oh......at least I survived.

Seriously though, that sucks.

Sorry I missed you Brian. I got in late Friday and left early today. Spent the entire time on the lake or in the titty bars....

I will be back in a few weeks.

A drowning occured in our pool of the river this weekend as well. Booze/no life jacket..

Then to top it off some younger fool with a 25 Outlaw thought it'd be alright to blast thru a search and recover scene when it was as obvious as night an day what was going on. Word was he was caught thank goodness, but no wonder our hobby will soon be gone by means of regulation..

Hate to hear that. Especially about the other idiot's at the search/rescue scene. I wore my life jacket all weekend while under power. I wish others would also because you never know if the other idiot's are paying attention to your course.
