Default Hardy Dam Pond weekend of Aug. 7!! Who's in??

Hello,
A group of us from LaPorte will be making the trek to Hardy Dam next weekend and want to see if we can get some more OSO'ers interested. I will have the new WETTE VETTE running hard hopefully and there will be four or five other cool rides in our group. So if anyone is interested let us know and we will keep a lookout for you!!

August 7 is also the big weekend of the Coast Guard Festival in Grand Haven. Most of the West Michigan guys and gals will be there for the big party.

Yup, Hanky Panky bay, Fireworks, all that weekend. Save the trip for the Party on the Hardy and stop in GH, it is an hour less drive for you also. You can stay at my house for free, I am in Holland where the ramps are empty and the people know how to back up straight. It is a 20 mile ride to GH. No cluster F**K at the ramp in the dark either, we will be the only ones there at that time.

Well it sounds like GH will definately be a good time. I only have .8 HRS on my new 598 and really want to stay on inland waters until I feel everything is right and there are at least 10 HRS on the motor. Hardy is guaranteed to have good running conditions for me to do some testing and as you guys know Lake Mich hasn't been very friendly this year. We will be back for the party so I guess we will se everyone then!!

Craig - Are you still going next weekend???

I will probably go the GH on Saturday and Hardy on Sunday.

I went to Hardy today ( sun day )
Spent half the day up at the sandbar. Had a great time and watched the STV's race.
When I left the sandbar I kind of hot dogged it a little by opening up the exhaust and trimming the drives just as I nailed the throttles. Then I pulled it back to a cruise.

WELL about 1/2 mile downriver an outboard cat caught up to me. ( I had seen him run earlier in the day and didn't think that he was that fast ( 70 or so ) Turns out I was pretty close guess. I smoked him... I would like to have been at the sandbar when he got back to hear what He told his friends. I was a good 10 MPH faster then him.
Boy that sure makes you feel good.
And then to top it off I drew a good crowd of kids and adults when pulling the boat out and one young girl even told me the boat looked SEXY
