What you need to find out is if they do test you and ticket you, can you stay on the WATER....As I mentioned earlier, others I know who were tested and ticketed were told to leave the water immediately.

They are a "piece of work" up there.

Hey Downtown!!

I haven't seen you since the Indy poker run. Glad you're comming to Oshkosh...I'll buy you one.

BTW I'm running KE800SC...But since I have over 200hours on them I took 1lb of boost out this winter so now they are like KE750s.

See ya next weekend!

Mr Cig,
I read on the DNR web site somewhere that it was 'A' scale. I did not verify this with them when I called to get the distances for measurement.

Seems to me that if someone is mowing their lawn on shore when you are tested your going to fail, even if you don't have your engines running yet!

I actually tested my lawnmower and it did not pass. I forget which scale they used, but it was the lower of the two.

Brad-I was asked where I launched from and was told that if I was seen later that I would be ticketed again. I was not "ordered" off the water.

Sounds like it's all going to hell up in Oshkosh. Haven't had any problems, been going there for years 2-3 times per yr except for 2003. Now I hear of 4 different people that have got nailed. Something must have changed recently.

Boy I think this is getting a little blown (no pun intended) out of proportion.

This is a huge lake and there are over 100 boats involed in this event. Mark Lee has the Sheriff and DNR attend. I've talked to Mark and he doesn't expect any trouble.

This is one of the best run poker runs in the country and I hope a few poeple don't scare off the general poker run enthusiast.

Besides... Mark is running a 42 MTI with Sterling 1450s and he's not worried.

I'm sure everyone is going to have a great time at this poker run.

I was up there this past weekend for one of my Sons tournaments and I had some time to stop by the Pioneer and Rods place a few times both days and there was NOT one performance boat within site nor any big trailers etc... Rod had a few in the water but other than that, it was real quite....

DT, I think a lot has to do with the people that live up on the Wolf, Poygan and Butte..that have complained so much to the DNR. I am sure that Winnebago is big enough to not affect anyone however the problem is that most everyone starts in the City and or heads up to the river.

I thought I read somewhere that the folks living up there donated the money to afford the DNR to buy the testing equipment. What does that tell ya.

There is no longer a run "up the river". Performance marine is not a card stop this year...The whole run is on the lake now.
