Chip broke...Mike injured a motor last weekend and couldn't get it ready in time for the run. He'll be back next year though...I heard a rumor he may drag his bad azz 40 Skater to LOTO too.

buy the blowers and i can machine you an adapter plate.

Tank-nice meeting you and your wife .Maybe we can get SCOPE to plan a poker run that doesnt conflict with LOTO.Even Al Burns is going back to LOTO with his "out of control" skater.

We'll see you out there! Planning on being there for the shoot-out to root for the west coast!

By the way, the SCOPE board was gracious enough last year to change their date as to not conflict with Lakeracer's plan to hold a poker run at the San Diego Bayfair that would have conflicted with the original poker run date. They chose the new date last year, only to realize it conflicted with LOTO. There's issues with getting the docking for the participants boats for SCOPE (only so many opportunities to do so). I think if the date's not changed this year is will have dramatic affect on the SCOPE event. That's 4 big contenders just off the top of my head (plus Bobbit may take another SCOPE member with him, so that's 5 boats). I'd like to see the SCOPE event changed too so more can attend. I'll run your OL, you take the skater....

Should have arranged a 40 to top speed flag drop race. Let's see who would win then...
