WALKIN THE DOG,

Same boat with the same crew. I changed gear ratio last summer to get my mid range acceleration back. New XR pinion gears like most everyone else.

Looks like we will bring the boy in the bubble camper top with us, just in case it snows. We did a run last October in 45 raining weather with tops up and we were warm with shorts and Teeshirt. Love them scoops.

See ya Friday. We are staying in the same building as Sydwayz.

Randy

I am calling and checking weather like every 6 hours. It should be OK.

Hey Bill,
We are still waiting on our boat. I can not believe we are going to miss our poker run this sucks.

Steve,

Some of the Carolina Power Boat Assoc members are doing that run I will get them to look you up and see if we can get the clubs together. Or call me at 704-634-9004

Thanks
David Ledford

Carolina Power Boat Assoc.

David - Sorry to hear that. Our update - trailer still being built, motor still in Miami being rebuilt. Weather is not looking promising either - from the weather.com website for Charlotte, NC:

Thu
May 15 Rain 70/57 70 %
Fri
May 16 Partly Cloudy 80/56 20 %
Sat
May 17 Partly Cloudy 71/53 20 %
Sun
May 18 Rain 57/52 70 %

I just don't think it is in the cards this time (pun intended!)

Bill and Patti

I'm not sure I will repeat last year. Does anyone know if they may reschedule or if is going to be held rain/shine/or freeze to death?
