I just read on another site that Captn Rons was announced as hosting the shootout for this year. Should be quiet up there at the 34.5 MM. It will be interesting to see how the raftup and the parking works.

I'm excited, It looks like I can still take that week off work now.

This was reported on 1150 KRMS website. They broadcast the shootout.

Yeah I saw that too but where ever they are it would have to be a remote feed so I don't see what the issue is on that to be honest...

Then again I've never seen it live we've always been out on the lake during the race....

Looks like we'll have a little longer boat ride than before but it's all good as far as were concerned...

THANK YOU!

It's refreshing to see a positive attitude toward this decision. Damn finicky boaters...

No TV coverage doesn't bother me a bit. Should be a great course for big numbers to be posted.

We can always take the FB this year! Or ride with Chevy. But remember we DID beat the rain home this year in my slow boat.
