Default Special thanks to C.O.P.S

Betty and I would like to thank all of you for such an awesome weekend. We are always asked where we do are boating and we really don't have 1 place. We really like to trailer and see new places and meet new people.
We plan on becoming members and attending more C.O.P.S. runs because we really felt at home. Everyone was so friendly and considerate on and off the water.
Thanks again, Doug & Betty Ann

Doug,
Wendy and I enjoyed Betty and your company as well. We hope to see you again up this way. Hopefully your trip back didn't have the traffic problems you had on the way up.

Doug & Betty Ann,
It was great to meet you guys. Your boat is fantastic. I really enjoyed watching it run. I hope you can make it up here for the Helicopter runs. Just remember it's not a race.
Dan & Vicki

Candyman, Thats what I keep hearing about the poker the runs we have been in, they are not a race. Could have fooled me.
Traffic was much better on the way home. Made it home around 12:30am. Took Monday off and had the boat in the shop for the out drive by 4:00pm, said he would check it out and have it back in a couple days. Called Wednesday afternoon and said it was finished. He found some masking tape I guess when it was painted disassembled blocking a oil passage not letting it circulate right making it come out the vent. All back home cleaned up ready for the next trip.
I sent the editor of Powerboat Magazines an e-mail about the helicopter that was taking pictures of are raft and he just mailed me back that it was theres. He was going out of town and said he would get back to me as soon as he returns.
I asked for some pics and see if they would put it in there article of the race. PRETTY COOL
OOO and about that secret. I still think Betty did it.

Doug and Betty;
It was great meeting you two. I hope that you guys can make it up here again for some of our runs. If not for a run just come up for a weekend. I, along with some of the other members, hang out there on the weekends so you won`t be by yourselves. Of course, after a couple of hours with some of us, I`m sure that you will want to be by yourselves.
