    Don's right. Although we have "proven" that "this" won't work, and "that" won't work.

    Yeah, bring the hot dogs Don. We'll roast them over an open speedo fire.

    Should be a hoot. For reference.........

    The last 3 record holding IMPBA Q mono will be on the water together.

    Then last fall, Kevin set the P sport record. Ty was off the old record by 2 tenth I think. Then Mike set the bar even higher later that day. Add to that Tyler Gerrard who holds the NAMBA P sport record. Those heats are going to be a outrageous.

    Can you move the date a couple weeks so I we can get more runs in before hand? We were out Saturday testing and it was 28 degrees and windy. Learned pretty much nothing.

    The lunatics were out there Saturday. There were 4 out. I was one of them.
    Ran the stealth once then bailed. Water was probably just above freezing.

    Now you know how I always feel. No practice. No new boats though. Same tried and true stuff. Just started packing. Only taking 6 boats.

    No worries Terry. You'll have time to get everything dialed in. What time will you guys be rolling in?

    We're going to our pond tomorrow to at least pull the trigger on a couple. Supposed to be 45 and raining though.

    No idea when we'll make land fall down there. We were talking about heading out about 5:30am Thursday. So maybe 6 or 7pm depending on how hard we stop for lunch. If we dash board dine and piss in a cup we could pick up some time. Getting out of Detroit before rush hour will help. Not sure if we will hit the pond Thursday at all. Early Friday for sure.

    Did you ever decide if you really needed help shagg'n boats? You know you can count on us.

    Did you get a room or are you commuting? Hey, are you guys doing a lunch dance again?

    Geez, Spanish inquisition. I'm not fired up at all.

    No lunch this year. The ladies that cooked last year are working the tower. We were unable to get anyone to step up. The retrieve boat is covered for the most part. AMB racers will fill in. Ed and I will be hanging out down south. That way we can be there early and have the place ready to rock!

    Only 160 heats!! Everyone will be able loosen their boot straps a little this year.

    We have rain threatening Sunday (50%) but it looks like it's coming in late. Lows in the upper 40s, highs in the 70s.

    Loosen their boot straps? I thought we were doubling down this year and trying to hit triple digits on the heat counter by sundown Saturday!

    I'm being optimistic and going with accuweather.com's forecast of 25% chance of rain on Sunday. That being said, I have about as much faith in meteorologists as I do televangelists or politicians!

    Looking forward to it fellas...

    Thanks,

    What do you think fellas? Can we cram in three more heats than we did on Sat. last year? I wonder what it would cost to give everyone a Red Bull infusion??
