105, where you been? Tried to p/m you but you are not accepting them. Motors are running well, had some questions about the boat that you may be able to help me with. The speed isnt as fast as National said, best is 109 on GPS, do you know what props Oliver ran on the boat? Not sure if these are the right ones or not. Talked to Paul and Mike Fiore, they said they were. But slip is real high. Around 18%. Something is different, this boat wont see the numbers that I was quoted the way its set up now.

Art, owner of Gilligans, told us that Darrin from Hot Boat mag. made Gilligans the poker run headquarters this year. I guess because Art showed them a good time when the boat they were riding in broke down during last years run. Not to mention a full page picture of his boat in the mag. Art said you can register on line, but this months Hot Boat, doesn't even have a date for the run in this area in it. I will talk to Art, any information I get I will pass along.

Been working day and night(literally 14+ hours a day)...I just spoke with Oliver the other day about a fund raiser, I will call him back and find out anything you need. You should be going alot faster than 109

Thanks for the vote of confidence, Wayne!

We would love to host a brainstorming session at our Cobb Island house.

Adam, you are right about the amount of work goes into it and, if we try to do this, we would love to have some of your insight since you have done this before. I can't imagine anyone wanting to get "paid" to help out with this kind of thing. This is our passion (and obsession ), so Bill and I would do it for the love of the sport and to see our friends have a blast. We have offered our help to Andy to help with the Nation's Capital Run last year and this year but our experience is limited.

So (God I can't believe I am going to say this), we will be glad to lead the coordination for an overnight poker run on the Potomac for next year. Anyone interested in attending the brainstorming session, please call Bill or myself or let us know when we see you on the water. Bill's number is below. My cell is 703-407-9106. The Cobb Island house number is 301-259-4531 and it has an answering machine.

Patti and Bill

Bill and Patti-

you better watch what you wish for....... I'm telling you, it is ALOT of work and time.

Now that this year's over, how about discussing and planning at Brian's Winter Blast in January. If you start in February, you may be ready by May/June for the run.
Keep in touch....the way I see it we need the following people:
1. Treasurer ( to keep track of money)
2. Shirt Designs ( to contract shirt design/ and shop for costs)
3. Helicopter ( person to arrrange and coordinate)
4. Enrollment ( person to distribute/take registration fees- to work w/ Treasurer)
5. Food ( coordinate caterer and card stop locations)
6. Card Stop Coodinator ( locates and coordinates stops w/ businesses and checks in all boaters at each stop)
7. Entertainment ( coordinates band/ DJ at appropoate card stop)
8. Advertiser ( coodinates advertising efforts with local businesses/ signage for advertisers and works with shirt designer)
9. Pace Boat ( leads boats to card stops- can be (2) boats for various classes)
10. Event Coordinator ( works with all above people to ensure all aspects covered)

That's a minimum of (10) people needed. Ray and I did this ourselves a couple of years ago, and it is a " interesting" process to go through. I've probably missed some stuff, I would have to check all my previous notes and contacts.

SEE YOU ON THE RIVER

GREAT stuff, Adam! Thanks. I took some notes and gave me a lot to think about.

We are going to need help so get your thinking caps on. I am going to approach Rick at Tall Timbers next time we are there about this idea. If you have never been there, this is a fabulous place for a last stop!

I think this could be a lot of fun and I am looking forward to it. What a challenge.

Thanks. Patti
