If it would help, I'll drag mine up there!! I can probably fit 10 sitting, or for a more leisurly cruise, 4 can lay back and relax very comfortably. Besides, I'm not sure how much of them my heart could take, but I'd try!!!!

What a cool problem to have!

But really, you need to figure out how hard you plan to run on the Poker run. If you don't care whether you run hard or not, it sounds like a great opportunity to fill the boat up with Miller girls.

If you plan to run hard, it doesn't make sense to expect newbies to be comfortable or to know how to act in a boat at speed. And a PR lasts a long time if somebody isn't really liking it.

I'd suggest that all people who end up in the boat on the PR have at least a couple of hours in the boat prior to the event. And give them an opportunity to experience how you plan to run the boat in similar water conditions.

Be sure to keep posting pictures of the "candidates".

Will they be dressed as representatives of Miller? Here's your chance to be king for the day, go for it. BTW, which of the girls is she?

Maybe an autographed picture will help. Miller Beer, the official beer of T-Dock.

What date is that run?
The Chicago Poker Run dates are July 22 & 23rd. More info can be found on our website. www.ChicagoPokerRun.com

I bet you'll like the magazine Logo.

I/m kind of surprised that Waterfoul hasn't seen this thread yet. He's got some kind of sixth sense for this kind of "opportunity".
