Downtown / Yeah, we are in the same place.
Women where just uninviteing, men where god like atitude. I spoke with a few dudes who just walked away acting as if they are the best. Oh well, maybe just a few @holes floating about.

RonS,
Sounds good, give us a call when you get on the water. Hopefully, we will be running around by then and we can hook up. We should be there about 1-2pm.

They sell 92 octane right at the marina that holds the event.

I've been in over 20 poker runs and this is one of the best...Great run, great food, and a good friday and saturday party too!

See ya there...

You may want to contact Mark through the OshkoshThunder.com website to make sure that I'm correct.

RV, we'll be up there later Fri afternoon, I'll give you a call on your cell to see where you guys are at.
Mark said that he has no permits from the DNR and that we should have mufflers. I do and still wouldn't make it. He has talked to them and hopes that they will leave us alone but could not promise anything.

I have been to this event in the past. The DNR even had a safety talk at the beginning. Many boats were open exhaust. If they pick on this event there will be some very upset boaters, me included. Even with my mufflers I am nowhere near 87 DB. You would need a fishing boat with a little outboard to pass.

Brad I hope you are right.

Just to clarify, I contacted the WI DNR on the noise measurement test.
They typically do the stationary test and it is 86db at 40" from the back of the boat and 48" to 60" above the water.

The drive by test is done at wide open throttle and measured 50'. For officer's safety they do not do that test and if they do it from a dock he said you would be in violation of running to close to a dock.

Do they check the db on the A scale or the C scale?
I have a db meter with both scale I check before hand but I know I'm over.

I did the self test with a db meter 4' up and 3' back. 105db mufflers on...... 110 off. Nobody would pass in typical Poker Run at 87 db. Going up the Wolf River on Sunday I would not recomend. The harrasment is higher up there.
