TEAM CHAMPION will be crushing waves in the 42 this year, the girls are sporting matching kini's from Malibu Strings. Crew of four right now, maybe another couple by kick off. [smilie=crazy]

I'll be down Wednesday night getting ready for the run Friday - Saturday, Sunday it's play time at Rehab @ Lazy Gators. I hope Kdog can handle trips on the way home [smilie=trink39]

If you want MWBP gear, memeber cards T-shirts from our last party, etc make sure you let DJ know ASAP so he brings the items with him. :cool:

Joey's not running this year, it's a "pain to go up to the 7MM for the Friday registration" and then again Saturday for the start.

It was better when the Friday registation was like last year at Kelly's or somewhere between the 20MM and the 30MM so people down this way didn't have to make that drive to the 7MM two days in a row.

We'll be hanging out at some of the joints between the 19MM and the 38MM, we'll be watching for ya, be safe and have fun, I know we will. [smilie=trink39]

Unfortunately we have to go with who will take us. Putting 400 people in Kelly's Port office on a 100 degree day just doesn't work. We figured people would be much more comfortable around a pool during registration.

I know that no matter where we pick it will be difficult for some to get there, but we do very much appreciate those of you that have signed up and will be helping us support this great charity!!!

We do the best we can to make things as easy as possible, we've been working on this run for almost 10 months, and pretty much day and night for the last 3 months. Hopefully the weather will cooperate and we will have the a great time again this year!

Looking forward to seeing everyone friday!!!!!![smilie=trink39]

Oh and in answer to the thread question, I might be running. Don't have a boat back yet. [smilie=106.gif]

Maybe I'll bring my paddle boat and be a pace boat for the closed canopy race boats in the first flight. :twisted:

You can register and pay on-line and I will drop your packet off at your house on my way back from the 7mm to the 28mm Friday night. Can't get any easier. :mrgreen:

John and I are planning on making it. That is...if we get the Scarab running. It'll just be the two of us because we didn't want to ask anyone and then not be able to make the run. :(

If it's not running, we'll still be down to hang out and see everyone!! [smilie=042.gif] And if we can't do the run, please take our entry $$ and donate it to The Cause. Because that's what it's all about. :cool:

Jeff - got an extra seat or two in that paddle boat? We may need a ride! [smilie=crazy]

DJ, I'm sure it's difficult to put something this size on and it's for a great cause, I'll just donate another way.
Maybe next year one of the other bars down this way will step up and give it a shot.
I just know some boaters that would have done the PR if the registation wasn't all the way up at the 7MM, in lieu of burning up a $150 bucks of fuel to register I'd rather donate it to them that's all.
Like I said, great cause, lots of work, thanks for the men and women in service.

Speaking of needing seats..... In addition to the people that signed up to take military guests, we need a couple more rides for 2 girls from LO Profile, and one video guy from Lake32TV. If anyone is interested in offering a seat, let me know.

Sweet, I was wondering about you guys. Does Bill have a date for his run yet?



I just know some boaters that would have done the PR if the registation wasn't all the way up at the 7MM

Same offer for them - sign up and pay on-line. Heck we just have three 1050 dominators and blower motors so I get great fuel efficiency in our ride. [smilie=crazy]

I'm willing to drop off packets along the 7mm - 28mm Friday night. I'd guess we will leave Lazy Gators around 9:00 p.m.

Kdog you came to boat right? :mrgreen:

Anyone else willing to come up Friday night and pick up packets for others that live close please speak up. [smilie=042.gif]

I tore them down. I told him when they're ready for the wiring harness to call me. In the meantime, I'm spending time with the grandkids and doing the man things around the house (mowing and changing light bulbs..lol)

The Fountain was out of gas. ...And the fuel valves were not opened correctly.

Before we towed him we offered to help him get it started but he just kept saying it wasn't getting power. I thought it seemed strange that he couldn't get 1 of the 3 motors to run.

Speaking of running, my boys at PBB have been working serious overtime, but two new motors and other misc problems solved. Boat should be on my lift by morning!!! Best customer service at the lake!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

And speaking of cool boats, a little birdie told me Dave Scott may be bringing a boat or two! [smilie=trink39][smilie=appl]

I've got a better solution. I'm going to put duct tape over the water intakes so that damned water stays out of the motors in the first place! [smilie=crazy][smilie=crazy]:mrgreen:

I think you are ahead of the game against me.

About 900pm tonite I was greasing the trailer bearings and one of the wheels wasn't sitting right under the fender. Broken F'n leaf spring[smilie=101.gif] I just got done taking off the broken one and have try and get a new one tomorrow. Six bolts took me almost 4 hrs to get off and I even have air tools. Wish me luck. If I don't find a spring, I can probably rig it, but I hate to that for a 350 mile tow.

when we were doing hurricane clean-up we broke several springs, we'd skipped the air tools and went strait for the fire wrench and just ordered all new hardware.:mrgreen:

If I had one, I probably would have just cut the U bolts. I did end up getting all new hardware. Parts were about $50. My labor was about 8 hrs[smilie=101.gif]

Its all fixed and we plan to be at LOTO by 3pm. See you guys there.
