Arrow SOTW Poker Run WEATHER FORECAST...

As it stands at 8AM Friday, I just watched the local report for the Grand Haven area. Sunny today at about 50*, rain is off to the west and is supposed to move into the area by the evening and rain through the night (which is fine if it MUST rain).

By Saturday the rain and the clouds will be clearing up right around 10AM and it will remain sunny for the rest of the day and about 70*.

Sunday they are saying will be sunny until about 3-4pm then it will rain again.

With a forecast like that, I would say it would be worth taking the chance to come to the event.

So that's the way it stands as of 8am today, Friday June 6, 2003

Shawn,

No, my hog isn't ready and I just bought a house. I had to take a starter off the port engine for rebuilding, and re-install my drives---just had them rebuilt. Other than that it could have been ready for the water, but my mind is on my new home I just bought and closed on this week and have to move here by the end of the month. It will be a much better situation for me.

When do you go back to Texas?

Scott, the south side of the jetty/channel that connects Lake Michigan to Lake Muskegon. You'll want to be on the east end nearest Lake Muskegon where you can walk along the channel's sea wall. There is an old WWII submarine called the USS Silversides moored along the jetty/channel. There are signs that lead to the USS Silversides from the highway, but I don't know exactly where they begin. Anyway, it's near the USS Silversides and maybe 100-200 yards east of it that you'll need to be for a good vantage point. You'll figure it out once you see it.

A friend of mine who lives in Michigan City said he saw the IMCO boat sitting in a hotel parking lot and wanted to get a few pictures of the drives----quite sure the boat is on its way to SOTW.

I would talk more, but I have to scoot!

The kilos are going to be in the South East portion of Muskegon Lake. Stretching from approximately Great Lakes Marina NE towards the mouth of the Muskegon River. From land the closest vantage point will be on the South side of Muskegon Lake in Downtown Muskegon. From the course map it looks like Heritage Landing will be the best spot. Unless they will have the Mart Dock open. That would put you within a couple hundred yards.

If you need directions, feel free to give me a call. 231-740-2290
