Weather for saturday ,,, keep your fingers crossed,,, is 81 and mostly sunny !!! imagine that,,,, sun predicted for the NYC poker run,,, not the torrential rain and booming thunder and lightning we got stuck under the T.Z. bridge in last year...

Hey Prowler and Chris - my boat is still in winter storage. I should be able to get to it some time this week. I hope to see you all on Saturday. I will just be going as far down as the TZ bridge - small boat/rough water even smaller gas tank etc. Looking forward to meeting up with you guys.

I think the parade from the statue to the GWB takes approx. 15-20 minutes,, so the full bore run will most likely be 12:30, which means they should be flying by the T.Z. at what 12:35 .. Seriously, were going down early to check out all the hardware and then head up to the T.Z. before the run starts... if your only headed out to the raft up,,, no need to be there before say 11:30-12:00 ??

Hey, Dave long time no see.. get that boat ready to float....LOL
We'd like to run with everyone down as far as the TZ bridge,, but we're gonna avoid the city also, just like last year. I don't think we will make it as early as everyone else is leaving though. I don't want to hold anyone up either. But, we'll try to make it around 9 AM, everyone will probably be heading down the river just as we pull in to the launch like last year, all we heard was thunder going down the river, if so maybe we'll see everyone after the run. My brother's new boat isn't gonna be delivered in time now, he got the "good" news today. The dealer said its done, but now he has to wait for them to bring it up from Ohio.

Aaron and I are thinking that leaving from Albany will be cutting it too close as far as not missing any of the run. We would like to hook up with a group leaving south of Albany Sat. a.m. that are going to both LLM to look at the hardware and then to the raft up area and then some drinks!!!! Paul (Hotboat), what marina are you leaving from, and do you have room for 2 more boats in your group?
