We can handle close to 60 boats before we have to start rafting.
We have never rafted in the past, how do you guys feel about it?

From what I've read in Mark Twain's classic novels "Tom Sawyer" and "Huckleberry Finn," rafting sounds like fun!

We have to raft off here at our run , and we pretty much do it every weekend we all hang out together at different spots . So its not really a big deal for us Chicago guys.

Good move JB! Sounds like there is a possibility of more boats showing up---especially from the Chicago area. That in mind, then would it be safe to assume that there will many more openings for participants than the usuall 40 ???

Yes Kaama, we will have to rearranging but will fit a lot more in. We have been getting a lot of calls already and we haven't even opened up registration yet.

At the last card stop there will be a fleet of yacths full of people that all paid $75 per person to cruise on out and watch you pick up your last card
