Default Philly fun run this weekend.......

Who's going? This was last year's poker run and was a great time. This time it's cooler(sept.), weather looks good for sat. 76 degrees and partly sunny!

We'll be there Formula 303sr1

I was just looking for this thread...

We're in, but will probably just meet up with the fleet at the East end of the C&D canal on the way down. We'll run back up with everyone and spend Saturday night in Philly.

Not in the run but I'll probably be at the Chesapeake Inn to check out the action. What time are you arriving at the Inn?

Chuck did you see your article in the Nor'easter? Once a celeb always a celeb!!!

John,

Haven't seen that issue yet - I was out of town at the Mark Donohue Tribute at Watkins Glen. Come to think of it - I haven't even seen the Powerboat article yet.....

Big Mark Donohue fan. Friends with Dave his son. I'll save you a version of the Nor'easter in case you miss it!

R Addiction,

The schedule is to leave Philly around 12 noon so I assume we'll be in Chesapeake City around 1pm. Hope to meet up with some of you guys then.

Dave P, How many boats are in this run?

Default Straight from DaveP this morning:

The weather for this weekend's fun run on the Delaware has been moving like the stock market! Right now it looks like rain on Friday and about 80 degrees and sunny on Saturday!

As for boats - right now I would estimate we have about 12-15 boats. Even though it is a fun run - the great folks from MONOC will be joining us anyway to enjoy a day of fun in the sun! (yes Chuck Sprague - the Robin the boy wonder will be coming!)

PLEASE REMEMBER - the USCG will be looking for us on the water. Please be courteous and obey all rules of the road.

The gameplan for Saturday:
When: Saturday September 13th
Where: Delaware River
Time: 12 Noon Departure Off of Dave & Busters Marina
Lunch Stop: Chesapeake Inn, Chesapeake City, MD
Dinner: Chart House Philadelphia

Thoughts on the day:
1) NO REGISTRATION FEE - This is a fun run / not a poker run
2) Everyone will be on their own for lunch & dinner (split the bills at the tables)
3) Tentatively meet on the Delaware off of Dave & Busters around 1130am
4) Depart around 12 Noon
5) Arrive at Chesapeake Inn around 1pm
6) Have lunch on the deck (split the bills at the tables)
7) Run back to Philadelphia around 4pm
8) Meet at the Chart House @ 8pm for dinner (split the bills at the tables)

For the sake of trying to keep track of who may attend, please email us @ [email protected] and advise us if you plan on attending lunch or dinner so we can give the restaurants a "heads up" on a head and boat count

Marina Slip Accomodations: Philadelphia Marine Center 215-931-1000

Philadelphia Hotel: Comfort Inn Downtown 100 N Columbus Blvd, Philadelphia, PA
Phone: (215)627-7900 (use EXPEDIA.COM for the best rate - $85.00 night if it is still available)
