The Poker Run was AWESOME! We were spectators this year, but the wife says we are definitely doing it next year.

I have a ton of pictures from the run that I will be putting on my website hopefully soon. I have pictures of a lot of the boats. If you were in the run and would like me to see if I have a pic of your boat, email me and I can send it to you before I get them on my site. Here is one for starters ... (It's My Way II if you can't read it)

Thumbs up Poker run

I just got back, I had a great time. Although I was a spectator due to boat problems. I rented a jonboat and had the family with me. Gananoque friday and A-bay on saturday for the run was awesome. Got some cool pictures of the the first couple of waves of boats pullin outta A-bay from inside Boldt Castle while the wife was makin like a tourist. Also got some nice shots at Gananoque also. My favorite boats were My Way and Tom Cat. Watchin them in action was wild as was watchin all the other bad boy rides. All the boats looked great and I was missin mine, but me and the family still managed to have an excellent time, hope everybody else did to.

Hey there TOPDJ. I think it was around 12:30 or so when they went out for the runs on Sunday.They were to keep them under 90mph. But I believe MyWay talk to the organizers and said if all was clear he could open it up. Either way things went well and everyone is back and safe. It was a great weekend all around.

Default Can't beat the cats!

Wow! What a show today. I'm so glad that I came up to see the parade of money, I mean the parade of power. I've been hounding everybody for information on the MyWay, but today I finally got my fill. I was on the dock shortly after Bill landed and in fact, as Jay has already mensioned, they did 170 mph, not 139 mph. I saw the GPS reading with my own eyes. I had a brief chat with one of the crew. Seems like there may still be some secrets, but I did dig up a bit of information. The drivetrain is the same as the original MyWay. Apparently this system is the brainchild of Tomlinson and another fellow named Ross Fadorky. A new company, Minds in Motion, designed and built those sweet, sweet air intakes, the exhaust system and the power recovery (water injection) system. Finally got to meet a couple of the guys that put this thing together. Excellent job guys.

I didn't get up to see the event on Saturday. I've been waiting months now to know... Tomcat vs. MyWay. Did they get side by side? Anybody have any info?

Later.
Ron
