Don't worry. I am most likely bringing my 90mph 234 Eliminator and you can run with it. You can't get lost. It is a river, wide but a river. It does open up into some wide areas, but not to worry about getting lost. Dan

Steven,
You could not imagine how nice and green it is. Big wide water with great people, friendly people. One day a couple of years ago, I broke down due to crap in my gas tank.

A guy from the shore saw us drifting and fired up his boat and came out to tow us to his private dock. He then threw me the keys to his car so my wife and I could drive down the river 50 miles and get my truck/trailer to tow my boat home! He had to go to a party, so he told me to make myself at home and just leave the keys! This was a total stranger!

There are no more friendly people in the country than the Tennessee crowd. Dan

Thanks for the kind words about us TN folks! We do try to have lots of fun but anytime someone needs help, we are there for ya!

Hoping for a great turnout from the ATL crew!

Plenty of boats running in the 65 and under class. I can think of at least 20 off hand.

Looking forward to meeting all of you and a great run!

Ok, sounds good. Just hadn't seen any posts from anything running below 90mph. Had visions of running with every one for about a quarter mile then no one til the end

My Edge tops out in high 90's but likes to cruise about 70. I am sure ther are others in this speed. Not everyone likes to cruise at 110mph like us. There are always some 60mph boats.

If I'm able to make it I am running in the slow group. Especially since I am currently putting the motor back together. Will be a nice cruise for me.

No, I will be in the 36 and I will also bring the EDGE for some friends to ride in who own a blown jet boat that would not run with the crowd. Has to stop for gas every 30 mins.
