    Speed Racer on the home page???

    Speed Racer is long gone and Wild never stops in any more, so how about an update on the "cover" boat of MWBP? Maybe the PBC race boat? MCON? One of the other lake area race boats? Poker Run pic?

    I know it is winter, but did everybody bail out and head over to Facebook?

    It is way too quiet. Still thing going at lakes though. Grand Lake has the huge Christmas boat light parade Saturday evening on duck creek from the Cherokee Yacht Club.

    I still check in, just been really busy. But I agree, a change in Banner boats I think is a great idea.
    Whats next?

    The thought of changing it has crossed my mind a dozen times. I'll come up with something.

    Input like that is always appreciated!

    Since they are both HUGE contributors at the lake, maybe have 2 boats, one from Performance Boat Center, and one from Big Thunder Marine. Maybe even let them choose which one to showcase. These two companies are first class in every way and anybody with ties to the lake benefits from them "doing what they do". It is rare around the country to find one first class operation, and we are very spoiled to have 2.

    Not to sound negative, But I think it should be a more generic picture of some type, not promote a company who is not even a sponsor to the site. However.... If they would, then by all means promote their establishments. I have noticed over the last couple of years, the sponsors have been dwindling. We need to promote those that support the site, they are the ones paying to help it succeed!

    I agree, For me it is indirectly through Barbs business. MVDS. We support financially and through positive re-enforcement of the site.

    I am in no way denigrating the businesses that are supportive of the lake, We all support them and they get TONS of advertising through the threads.

    This is/was aimed more at one of the businesses listed that have not made any type of support in a long time to the site, unlike BTM that has made numerous posts and helpful suggestions along the way.
