Default Skaterfest......The thank you's

On behalf of Doug and Leeanne Lewis let me thank all of the following people (in no particular order) for their participation in our soggy effort:

1. Pat Patel and Kristen Scibetta..... for the moral support and party antics.

2. Dave Patnaude and NJPPC for all of your support and effort.

3. Dennis Cavanaugh of Mercury Marine for waiting in the rain for two years in a row...and for your kind comments.

4. Dick O'Dea for making the event a special reunion...and Shane Maheu for pulling you out in the daylight.

5. Danny, Dale and "Stretch" for working around the clock for days in preparation for the event.

6. Bud and Gail Tresh, Gary and Karen Bicker, and all the other Skater owners for the use of your beautiful boats.

7. Freeze Frame video...for many of the tapes played at the event.

8. DarrenUS1 for creating a video montage for the "What Happened" Safety and driving tips session....You'll always be my hero, buddy.

9. George and Ilse Linder who are "family".

10. Typhoon Marine for the use of your beautiful 36 Nortech Cat.

11. 24/7 Graphics ....whose trim and finish talents are unbelievable.

12. Rolf Papke and Pro-Roc Marine for bringing not one, but two, beautiful Spectre's to the event...and for being a standup guy when it counted most.

13. Philip and Kim for fighting through many issues to attend on Sunday...and brought cookies as well.

14. All of the attendees who braved inclement weather, long distances, and the absence of some "celebrity's"..while maintaining a positive, supportive attitude.

15. Tim Sharkey, who made it all worthwhile....he cleaned, he launched, he took photos, he smiled, and he gave up a lot of time without complaint nor expectation...... And his family endured it right along with him.

16. The Boardwalk Restaurant for putting on what became one of the best party's I've ever attended.

17. Anybody else that I may have forgotten.

For those of you who couldn't make it......we understand completely.... God gave us almost 2 inches of rain...and in his generosity torpedo'd many of the "best laid plans".

Thanks to all.

Talking Thanks for making us feel welcome!!!

Thank you all for organizing such an informative and interesting event. This is Chris ( AIR FORCED 28) FROM 24-7 INNOVATIONS.
My girlfriend and I had no idea what to expect on the way down to Jersey. On the way home we were sooooo happy we went. We hope to see some of the fine people we met there at some of the upcoming poker runs. The time and effort people spent answering my questions was so greatly appreciated. The videos and safety meeting were a reality check that show how serious these boats can be. Before I get back to work I want to thank the following..... Rich Luhrs for all the time spent with me and the boat , all the cool boat owners that shared there stories with us , all who helped get the boat in and out and saved the Jersey residents from Heather and my trailer!, Dennis for intelligent prop talk, Bud for showing me what a really cool Skater looks like (maybe someday, lol). Finally ... Mike (21 Skater), Chris , other Chris, Tim Sharkey, Dave , Rolf , and everyone who had kind words, complements, and now a new found love for Carbon Fiber!
Look forward to next years Skater fest and seeing you all again!
Chris and Heather
