I just got home from Cumberland, my first time there. I got a chance to meet Kevin on the docks the prior evening and I am still in shock of the events from Saturday.

RIP Kevin, your powerboat family will miss you.

I too, had just met Kevin and talked briefly with him before the run.
He will sorely be missed by all.

I've seen Stu at FPC kick speeders out and I'm glad he does, thats why I only attend well run events like his that put safety first and have no problems enforing the rules.

Try reading what was written before YOU post dumb stuff like that.
This is my last word because I do think it is disrespectful. I am glad FPC has never had an accident, and thanks for telling everyone that our lake cumberland poker run is not well run and it is considered a race so that you can hopefully get it discontinued.
~Craig my best wishes on a speedy recovery physically and mentally and again my prayers are with Kevin and all involved.~(signing off this thread)

I WOULD JUST LIKE TO SAY KEVIN WOULD BE DISAPPOINTED IF THIS POKER RUN WAS DISCONTINUED AS HE WAS ABOUT SMOKE ON THE WATER. MAYBE IT SHOULD BE RAN IN HONOR OF KEVIN.

Craig I was in the boat that pulled you out of the water, right next to chris ferryman's Skater and my brother has a video of the entire accident if you would like me to send it to you.

I am very happy to hear you are doing well, and very sorry for your loss. Rest in Peace Kevin.

Look for the same thing to happen to this event as SOTW - no more.
This is not the time or place for a post like this. There are a lot of people on here that lost a loved one. How about giving some respect.
