No talk as of yet about a 2013 fun run. I know there was a geat turnout last year (I missed it as I was in Clearwater) and for the most part our normal group enjoyed the extra boats. However, there were a few issues that might cause some hesitation in opening up the run again this year. I'm sure we'll be discussing it soon over a few beers on the dock as the weather is finally getting to where we can put boats on lifts. I'll put out a thread once a decision is made about this year's run.

Run was cussed and discussed over the weekend with 5/18 being the target date. However, few of our regular group could make the 18th so a date has not yet been agreed upon.

Good looking Magic running around the lake on Sunday. Don't see a lot of Wast Coast boats on our little pond.

There were only a couple of minor issues with the worst being someone telling the organizer's wife to "F off" after she politely told someone to turn down the rap music they had blarring next to a boat with kids in it. Not a good way to get invited back.

Haven't heard anymore on trying to figure out a new date. If one gets decided upon I will post it.

No. Never really was an official poker run. A group of us on Dock 3 used to organize a fun run that we would also draw cards on and split high/low hands at the end. It used to be just folks we knew and back in 2012 it was opened up to anyone that wanted to attend. Had a great turnout and was by most accounts a good time. We still have some performance boats on the dock (290 PQ, 33 Outlaw, 303 SR-1) and a buddy has a 24 AO cat. The Outlaw has Brad Smith power and the AO has an Eddie Young blown 540. 303 has 489's by Eagle Machine via Myrick at PBC.
