Talking Detroit River Poker/Fun Run June 20th

It looks like a Poker/Fun Run is comming together.

For more info send an email to: motorcityfunrun@yahoo.com

Here is what I know:
June 20th
First stop will be Harbor Hill Marina
Might stop at Clam Diggers, Both Jacks locations, Pier 500
This will be part of the GM river days event (I guess they would like us to run up and down the river for about 20 mins downtown)
Cost is trying to be free...

We are trying to get some of the above mentioned bars to throw in some food.

There are no speed requirments...so run what you brung!

As I get more info, I'll post it...

Edit:
-Both Jacks loctions confirmed (Jack's on the River used to be Bob's Bar).
-BBQ will be held at Harbor Hill at the end of the event.
-Boblo removed. Last year they did nothing for us except charge us $7 for a beer and $3.50 for a Coke.
-Working on getting T-shirts made.
-20 boats have RSVP'd

A 16 footer with 130hp would have plenty of speed.... just might be a bit rough with everybody else's wake....

Casey, when you get your boat and decide you want some wings & a beer from Hooters in bay city ---- DO NOT, I repeat DO NOT sit in the pregnant Hooters waitess section.

Fun for jokes, awful for everything else.

25'
I am only running low to mid sixties, so certainly not going to be at the front of the pack.

Looks like Gary Coleman and UP_DAYTONFAMILY will be riding with me.

Anything smaller then a 21-24' DEEP V such as dave's 23'7" Agressor will get EATEN alive on this run, The detroit river is nothing but seewall and with all the boat traffic the river is going to become a bath tub, as much fun as it would be to try, I don't recommend anything less then a true offshore boat with a 24* bottom.

I concur. The seawalled section from Hart Plaza down past the post office gets brutal with a lot of traffic. I've see honest-to-God 4-5 footers in heavy traffic, and since they play off the seawalls you get them from multiple directions simultaneously.

Otherwise ring me up and stop by the island. I'll buy you a beer at Sharkey's.

btw - is the Clamdigger the Clamdigger in Monroe?
