Default Extreme Boats Mag article Chicago Poker Run

Extreme Boats Magazine did a great job on covering this year's Chicago Poker Run. They show some incredible running shots. They also show helicopter views of downtown Chicago and Resorts Casino/East Chicago Marina facilities in one convient location. It was nice to see some new faces and boats covered in the magazine. I personally feel that there should have been more pictures of certain people deserving coverage, but what can you say, I am extremely happy for their coverage and their guidance with their B-Safe safety program. Thank you all.

Haven't got my issue yet but am looking forward to it.
I think from the pic above they did a nice job of mixing it it up with Old and New boats. Sometimes magazines focus on the new boats or 100+MPH boats only. There is alot of work that goes into keeping the old stuff up and running and most are done by Do it Yourself people with limited budgets.

Great job!!!!

Thanks
Mark

Congrats Mark! I saw the pic when I proofed the article, great to see the ol' red girl get her 8 x 10 glossy! Your boat has got to be one of THE nicest flatdecks still around.

Great coverage for a great event.

And Brian...if Michelle catches you using our backyard stream as a privvy one more time she says we're calling the cops...

Rather good pic of Team Bad Influence if I do say so...you can clearly see the nearly-empty bottle of Sailor Jerry Rum I am displaying. That was a good night.
