Stop.... Your killing me. Don't remember any pics. You know of the other boats and the races...

I'm getting some pics from the river shiver. There are some good ones of your boat. I'm looking for the one where we were driving accross Fox Lake.

Buck,
That would be fine as long as Casey isn't the only entertainment !!!!

30Outlaw2005 and bunbuster. You're very welcome !!! I am sad if this is the last one. I know you guys were already planning the trip in 2008. we will still go down, just maybe another weekend like the 4th or something. Now that reminds me, I need to get my deposit back for the condo we won't be needing anymore

JaayTeee - I think I saved enough of those Boats for Sale papers to hand out to everyone. Glad I did if this going to be the end. How did you do this year?

Don't think that I've missed any since it started. I think there would be a lot of people willing to help, still need some organizaiton to take charge.

I would think they would be able to turn this to a profitable event. I think we paid $100 for my boat to run at Loto. If you race with SBI the entry fee is about $1500 (I think thats what I use to pay). A Poker run is from $450 to $850 per boat. If each boat that ran was charged a decent entry fee equal to the entry fees of other events, That would be a huge amount of revenue in itself. Not sure how many boats in total ran in the even this year but I think that in itself would double what the past revenue has been and It wouldn't cost the spectators or the municipality anything.
