It looks like Harbor Hill Pulled out at the last minute. The starting location is at Jack's. There is a ramp at Blossom Heath park. It's about a quarter mile south of 10 Mile on Jefferson. There will be a $5 continental style breakfast available. Same time.

Default EMERGENCY NOTIFICATION...2009 Motor City Fun Run Changes....

Ahoy there everyone,

There have been some minor scheduling changes....

SO PLEASE SPREAD THE WORD AND TELL ALL YOUR ATTENDING FRIENDS!!!!!...

Unfortunately, Harbor Hill Marina and the Roostertail have pulled their support of the 2009 Motor City fun Run...

It was unplanned and unforeseen...we were blindsided at the last minute (yesterday)...But that's O.K....

In the spirit of "All Hands on Deck"...Jack's has really stepped up to the plate and offered their waterfront restaurant as the base camp for our event...

We will now meet at Jack's, rather than harbor hill...

The continental breakfast/driver's meeting will start at 9:00am at Jack's

We will fire up and leave Jack's at 10:30am and run the lake...returning at 12:00 for the Old School Reunion II and boat show...

The rest of the course ans schedule will remain relatively the same with two minor changes...We will run the North Channel, rather than the Middle Channel, due to "No Wake" concerns and we are gonna do the Windsor Yacht club Idle-By earlier and close the run at Jack's...Rather than Harbor Hill...

Jack's has even gone one step further and offered us overnight seawall accommodations, w/shower and security at no charge for both Fri. & Sat. nights...Which is incredible!!!

Note: There is no shore power, which, again is O.K....because, you don't have it at Gull Island, Muscamoot Bay, Strawberry Island or Crystal Bay either???

In addition, we are scheduled to have an 8:00pm meet and greet on Fri. 6/19/09...with free finger food provided, and free seawall dockage...

Note: Heavy Storms are predicted on Fri. w/a 70% chance of precipitation....So, the Fri. event may be canceled, but call the restaurant or Jim Fisher at 313-957-1991 for an update before arriving...


New Boat Launch and Trailering instructions:

For those trailering from the east...Take I-94 to 9 Mile...exit at 9 Mile and turn left (south)...Take 9 Mile south to Jefferson...You will then go thru the light and follow 9 Mile to the Eastpointe Boat Launch (end of road) and pull into the lot at proceed to the guard shack on the other side of the lot...The daily launch fee is $10.00...

For those trailering from the west...Take I-94 to 9 Mile...exit at 9 Mile and turn right (south)...Take 9 Mile south to Jefferson...You will then go thru the light and follow 9 Mile to the Eastpointe Boat Launch (end of road) and pull into the lot at proceed to the guard shack on the other side of the lot...The daily launch fee is $10.00...

Note: Those traveling from West Michigan...take I-96 east to the I-94 interchange in St. Clair Shores and head west on I-94 to 9 Mile...exit at 9 Mile and turn left (south)...Take 9 Mile south to Jefferson...You will then go thru the light and follow 9 Mile to the Eastpointe Boat Launch (end of road) and pull into the lot at proceed to the guard shack on the other side of the lot...The daily launch fee is $10.00...

Special Note: Please give Jim Fisher a call at 313-957-1991 when you are approaching the marina &/or ramp...We will meet you at the ramp and help you to launch, tie-up and then, shuttle you back to the ramp, so you can safely & securely park and lock your hauler/trailer on launch proper...After which, you can safely park your vehicle in the marina...

Pictures

There will be an airplane and photographer overhead taking individual and group shots during the fun run...We plan to have the pix ready and delivered by the start of the after party at Jack's. They will be avail. for sale and are able to be blown-up to poster size...(Much, much, thanks to Ryan Bilyk, who BTW, made all the arr. and has footed the bill for the plane and photographer... Note: we are selling the pix for $30 a piece, just to cover the cost of airtime and to tip the pilot and photographer)...again, "All hands on Deck"...

T-Shirts

We will also have commemorative 2009 Motor City Fun Run T-Shirts avail. for sale at the BBQ as well...Just click on this link for details http://s612.photobucket.com/albums/t...t=DSC00327.jpg

In closing, we want to offer a very, sincere thanks to Jack's, for stepping in where needed, in true "ALL HANDS ON DECK" spirit...

Note: Again, this is our 1st fun run of the season, but, not the last...And, though the weather may not cooperate and others would like to see us fall on our faces...we refuse to fall/fail... and have tried to cover all the bases. (EX. all the free food at Jack's actually cost us several hundred dollars)...

As previously stated, we are very excited and are looking forward to seeing everyone and making new boating friends!!!!!

We will call each of you personally to notify you of theses last min. changes...

Sincerely,

Friends of the 2009 Motor City Fun Run

We ran into an issue with the boat when we were arriving at Metro Beach. So we decided to head home.

My boat seems to reject the gauge cluster and dash panels.

Its kind of hard to drive in 2'-3' chop doing 60 while holding your dash down.
It was also hard for UP_BLACK&BLUEASSGUY to hold on and try to hold the dash panels down.

I am hoping to have it fixed this week. I ordered dash panels, but they are back ordered. I also need to put in some epoxy to tighten the fastener holes up.
