As much fun as running the 152 mph at the shootout was winning the fun run on Friday. The start was a little haphazard but we had some killer races with a number of MTI's throughout the course.

Unfortunately, the Skater photo shoot and the fun run were scheduled too close together. We decided to represent the Skater boys at the fun run instead of being in the photo. No one would have gotten too excited about a white boat amongst all those killer paint jobs anyway. We're happy we brought the fun run win home to the Skater nation this year.
Sorry but I had to chuckle after you got DQ'd for the second time...remember I told you to shut it down after the traps! (guy in the Cig Gladiator) I'm glad you got another chance and posted a good number; hope to see you back at LOTO again soon!

I was so disappointed that Garth was DQ'd the second time, that I actually jumped off the couch and was all pissed at the course officals for doing it... haha.. I felt bad for Garth, bcuz the boat was running so perfectly... Then you could see on Garth's last run, 152mph, he was turning the boat left/right at the end of the course trying to slow it down, I was laughing, even Teague laughed about it... LOL, good job Garth

Ha that's great; we were all floating in the staging area waiting to run and they were beefing about being DQ'd for running straight thru the bouys at the end of the run out zone...so I told'em to just shut it down once they hit the traps and next thing I see is them turning (after the traps) and running off the course throwing a thirty foot rooster...and I was at the other end of the course. Had to laugh and glad it worked out for them.

That was Skater Jim riding shotgun with me in the shootout. On the ride home, we formed an engineering subcommittee, took out our slide rules, and worked on a solution for deceleration. We decided to retrofit the boat with Fred Flinstone style brake pedals in the floor boards over the winter. Should do the trick.

Hey PR388, you seem to know a lot about camera coverage, video's, etc of the shootout. How/where do I get a copy of the weekends runs?

Hey Garth, I was watching the runs live on Stickam.com , Not sure if they have anyway to get any footage for you, but I just was watching the site , listening to Bob Teague and watching all the runs most of the weekend...

Dennis at KRMS said to email him for the DVDs of the coverage at [email protected] . He said entire set of weekend coverage is $120.00. Next year he spoke of increased coverage/camera angles.
