I was interviewing a potential employee one time and I explained to them we owned some ready mix concrete companies and were headquartered in Chicago. The look on their face was priceless. Anyone need some concrete boots?

In defense of Smoke, Marc, and Bob. They had every intention of putting on Smoke on the Water for 2007. It was not until they became involved in the lawsuit concerning the events of the 2005 poker run that they decided to cancel the 2007 event.

We know that Cherie' and it was NOT by their choice either. That's what's so sad about the whole situation you have to deal with. There was nothing you could've done, and now, you, Marc, and Bob are paying the price for someone elses mistake. And with that said, all the rest of us boaters have to suffer with you.

I had several people that I've never met before, that came up to me and told me what a fun bunch of people they are, and to make sure they come back next summer. Every time you look at their group in the pits, they were always mingling with all the crowd, passing out T-shirts, giving away coozie cups, and making everyone around them laugh and smile. What a fun lovin group to be with. I think I'm gonna have to head down to Grand Lake to pay those boys a visit real soon.

I know from a post I put on another thread last friday about our Poker Run, it seems as tho some of you guys misunderstood what I was referring to. I was'nt referring to anyone at all about what size boat they run, I was meerly just stating that with all the bragging some guys here do about how excellent of a rough water boat they have, and registering for participating in an event that you know could possibly have some extreme water conditions, waiting til the day before and backing away.
We had boats that are 25' that ran the whole event, because they know what to expect out here and can compensate for it.

I guess what I really need to do, is give an appology to the OuterLimits factory team. We could'nt figure out, who or what scared them away. At first we thought that the weather forcast calling for 5-7 ft waves did it, and I could've understood that. Then, we thought that maybe when they found out that Reggie was coming and possibly bringing a big gun, that did it. And I could understand that too, as seeing how they've been taking a whippin from him over seas. I could see not wantin a whippin at a poker run. I was almost ready to read Reggie the riot act for scarring the OL factory team away, when the E-DOCK boys heard me talkin about it. Well, low and behold, I found out the real reason they

were scared away. It was them darn E-DOCK boys, and they admitted it too. They said they're sorry, but could'nt say it won't happen again. It was actually kinda funny when we were all talking about it. Everbody needs a good laugh now and then, and we all had a good one last weekend.

Now, don't everybody take this the wrong way. This is only about a few select "factory team" scaredy cats. We have one local guy here with one of the sharpest, bad to the bone 47 OL with a pr of 1250's, and Nick with Rocket Man hung with all of us for the long run. It was just too bad that he was alone in representing the OL's. Alot of people were very disappointed about the lack of support from such a "offshore" boat builder like OL.

Now, shame on you E-DOCKERS !!!



If E-Dock really are ballers......they will roll out to the SCOPE poker run at the end of September. That's all I have to say about that. Otherwise.......they are just a bunch of

Jeff, it was a pleasure talking to you and your lovely wife Jessica. I'm glad the both of you had a good time. If you get a chance to come back again this summer, make sure you call me before hand, and I'll make sure you get a full tour of Chi-Town by water.
Candyman will be getting all the photos from the photographers real soon and then you'll be notified if you don't already see the pics on this board.

This is one I have of your boat before the Chicago run in the afternoon.

Frank and Lois

I posted a couple of you on the Chicago Poker Run Picture thread. I am still having problems converting the raw files to jpegs. Once I get it figured out I will shoot you a file that should make you very happy!
