There is always Pastrick marina in East Chicago, In
The beach right next to the marina always has room.
Then you can go in the harbor and tie on the wall and go to the Yacht Club or the Gambling boat for food.

Mark,
Good idea! We can let everyone come over here. I bet we won't use as much gas Do you know anything about this COPS run? It would be nice if we can get the slips for that night. That way the whole group is in one place to start off Sunday. Are you guys still going to the races in Grand Haven? Vicki doesn't want to go so I think my buddies and I will run over there for the day by water.

32fever,
Would you guys be interested in this Cops run out of Diversey Harbor on the 24th? Then you could have an escort back over to St. Joe on the 25th.

We have a wedding and my wife's class reunion on the 24th. So, we'd only be able to do things on the 25th, but we'd run to MI City or something and I'm sure if Rocketman's around that day, we could talk them into going and maybe a few other boats. As soon as you have something figured out, we'll see what we can figure out. Heck, Rocketman may even want to do the Cops run. He wanted to do the Racine trip, but they had a wedding to go to.

I'd love to go to the cops run, but gotta do these other things......but there is nothing better than running from the cops. Or is that with the cops? LOL!

In any event, we will be heading to the Air show Sat morning with a 32 Active Thunder. We're putting the boat in Friday night to get an early start since we couldn't get a slip in Hammond either.

No chance for me to put in untill Saturday night 5pm maybe, so i'll miss the cops run but lets do a run of some sort on Sunday 25th.
A run to Mich. for some hook time on a beach sounds great. Wade around put back a few Capt. and Cokes just doesn't get any better than that

I will be at the airshow this weekend.

Next weekend I would be up for the run on the 24 and 25. I didn't have a chance to meet half the people last weekend.

Aren't there some races in South Haven that weekend? Anyone interested in a run across the lake?

I'm at the air show Sat & Sun, Launch in Alsip. Got a slip in Jackson Harbor.
Folowing weekend I'm thinking of launching in Alsip, blasting all the way to Saugatuck on Saturday 24th, staying the night and coming back on Sunday 25th.

Stevel,
There is a run out of diversey next weekend on the 24th. A few OSO boats have already signed up. Supposedly we can have the slips for Saturday night. Then we can all make a run over to ST. Joe or the Michigan City in water boat show. Maybe the St. Joe guys could meet us down by MC or New Buffalo and just hang out at the beach. We may be able to pick up some additional boats from the COPS run that don't know about OSO.

The races are Labor day weekend.

Zanie,
I think we are launching at Hammond this weekend. I'll be out all three days. I'll keep an eye out for you. Have you given any thought on the COPS run? Thirty bucks a boat, which includes a slip at Diversey Harbor and a helicopter taking pictures for Powerboat Magazine! This is the home site for the run. http://www.offshorepowerboat.com/
