Thumbs up NJPPC Atlantic City Poker Run and...

Who says you can't have fun when you get wet?
What a great event it was this weekend!
I want to thank our guys from POWERBOAT MAGAZINE for making the trip all the way out east to cover this event. It was a spectacular air show with the helicopter flying above us all. I never seen anyone fly the way this man did. Great job guys!!! Can't wait to see the upcoming article due out either Sept or October issue.
Thanks again NJPPC for a great start of the season! Now I know for sure DaveP doesn't have full control over the weather. Had me wondering over the years how each event was always sunny. Rain or Shine, it was just plain great!
Special thanks to WooHoo & CSpray for leading us through the southern channels!
My wife's first time out on a Poker Run, I think we have her hooked! At first I called her my "rev limiter". (Cause she didn't want me going too fast.) After explaining and showing her that in certain conditions you are better off running a little faster than slower and how the ride can improve with speed, she got more relaxed. She was a great sport all weekend!
Now I have to work on her boat handling skills....
She is willing to help out with the boat, so that is a great start!
It was great to see everyone again!
Till next time.......see ya!

We have been wondering how the run went on account of the weather. Glad you all had a fun and safe time.

We had a blast
It was great to get together with the NJPPC crew again. Dave and the many other volunteers put on a top notch event, Thank You All.
Heres some typical NJ--PPC traffic.

A HUGE Thank You to Thunder Dan and his lovely wife Barbara for inviting Christine and I to ride with them. We had a blast.
Here is a picture of Dan, Barbara and Christine aboard the appropriately named Thunder Storm.
