B4M,
I guess the rumor isn't just floating around this year! Rich has my application in the mail. It will be a great time. Do you know which charity the run is benefiting this year? What's up with a Kilo run?

Is there any recommended places to stay and launch near the 'headquarters' of the main events?
How many years has this run been going on?
Cost? And is this a "Poker Run?"

I got a truck to take the boat other places this summer. If there is a link that would answer all my questions, I would appreciate it!!!

Thanks,

Obnox21

OBNOXUS21,
The run is a Poker Run. This is the seventh year for the run. The run originates out of Pastrick Marina in Indiana. It is a charity run with the proceeds going to Ronald McDonald House. I believe the cost is $375.00 per boat. I don't think Rich has a web site. I'm sure He will chime in with some information.

Cool

Thanks to everyone, we have had great response this year. To answer some of your questions, I founded ThundeRun in 1994, and yes that is how it is spelled. This is not a cops run. Candyman and Back4more will confirm we always have a great time, and the course is always a surprise. Just make sure your gas tank is full. I always have a short course and a long course, so everyone goes in the same direction some just go farther if they want. Also depending on weather conditions you might want to shorten your course. The run is designed for everyone to have fun. We are hoping for 100+ boats this year. Web site will be up soon. This event is 100% for charity and has always been.

This years charity is Ronald McDonald House (sorry Too Old) and yes Ronald will be there. I have dedicated this years run to Ben Zejeski a very dear friend that was lost this year. You might have known Ben from his Cigarette Top Gun with big letters on the side "NEXT" or you might have known him from his 80' Baia named Steelin that he keeps in Miami.

If you want an application and have not recieved one, please e mail me with your mailing address, and fax number. We will get you the information ASAP. The application will answer most questions, if not please contact me.

Back4more yes the KILO run will be fun! Who will be the king of Chicago. Remember boost is your friend. I will be at 11 pounds with 110 octane.

I think I will saty at Harrah's. Is that where most of the others will be staying?
