Stevel,
The Milwaukee race is another Great lakes Silver Cup race. I plan to trailer up north for that one. The Grand Haven race is a definite also. Grand Haven is the perfect place to hold a race. I guess we need to get slips rented early this year. There really won't be that much planning for either trip. All we really need to do is find the best place to tie up. We could plan a happy hour or two also.

GSC holds a Baja run every year starting at the Alsip launch. Unfortunately I was told they spend more time in the river than the lake. Maybe with the right leadership you could build on that run.

I won't be organizing any Fountain runs this summer. I'd hate to tell some Baja owner he couldn't participate in my run. I would like to get a few boats together for a fun run. I still like the idea of Wally strapped to a helicopter taking pictures of all of us. Racine was a great time last year. I hope we can do more things like that also. Don't forget LOTO would be a great group trip also. Only thing I'm sure of its going to be a busy summer.
Dan


NEWS FLASH………There may be a DONZI run this summer also!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Guess who I’m going to nominate to run the event???????????????????????

Hey Steve,
It was my pleasure. It was nice meeting you guys. We plan to make a few trips up your way also. We had a blast in Grand Haven last year. I look forward to seeing you guys over the summer. Are there any pictures of your boat posted on OSO? I'd love to see some more.

Dan & Vicki

I stand corrected! Very cool. I'm in. I've got Cash on the phone telling me I'm doing a Fountain run. He says other boats can come to the Fountain run also. I'll think about it Cash!

Dan:
The manufactor runs are just the focus of the run, not the only ones who can particate. Or at least I hope that is the way Cash wants them set up. If you need or want help I would be more than happy to lend a hand.
