Ron S & RV
We are going to be up there about 10:30am Friday. Launching at the Pioneer and running up river to the Bridge Bar in Fremount for Bloodies. If anyone is interested in joining us, let us know.
Ron S, Lois and I will give you a call in the afternoon to try and catch up
with you.
I'm looking forward to another fun Poker Run this year.
PS
I was up the river in Winneconne over Memorial Weekend. Not a DNR Warden in site. It did ran all weekend, and I don't think they like getting wet.

Mark,
Sounds like another great event. Can't wait until Friday.

Bill,
We will get in about 1-2pm so it will probably be closer to 3pm by the time we get unloaded and checked in. Ron has my cell so if you get in touch with him we should be able to hook up. Or, send me a message w/ your cell and I'll call when we get out on the water if I haven't heard from Ron yet.

Downtown,

Thank you for posting the schedule. It is mostly correct, except that the actual course has been changed slightly. You will get a map at the drivers meeting when we finalize it. Please note from previous posts on this thread that the lunch stop has been changed from Fon du Lac to Stockbridge.

Mark

Card #1 Drivers Meeting
Card #2 Head Northeast to card boat (2 starts)
Card #3 Head South and go past the Cal Harbor tower
Card #4 Head to Stockbridge for lunch
Card #5 Head to Streich's Bay
Back home

WE ARE NOT GOING TO FON DU LAC

Might be pretty busy out on the lake this weekend. Fond du Lac is hosting the annual "Walleye Weekend" fishing tournament. I think that's why the card stop must have been changed from Fond du Lac to Stockbridge.

Falcon,

Actually one of the main reasons the lunch stop is at Stockbridge is from the great response from Julie Heuvelman (Calumet Planner) who has been instrumental in setting up the harbor for our group. They are starting an annual event around our run called Harborfest that is family orientated and will allow kids to participate in a 'Meet the drivers' atmosphere. Although we love going to FDL, and have had an overwelming welcome in the past years, one of the goals of Oshkosh Thunder is to expose ALL local business on the Winnebago System to the Poker Runners. This gives the club members a choice of more places to go along with giving the local businessman a chance for more customer activity. We hope that we will be able to keep boating on the river systems to help the restaraunts there with the struggle to get by as more and more boaters are being restricted from the areas.
