    Default Desert Storm Poker Run 09 Question

    If I can afford to do Desert Storm this year I am going to and had a question about launching. On some of the busy weekends, they seem to shut down the launch ramps and I think Desert Storm is one of those really busy weekends (I haven't been out their for Desert Storm yet) and imagine that they would shut down the launch ramps. What happens if you pay for the event (to be in the poker run) and they don't let you launch, or are you guaranteed a spot to launch if you are in the poker run.

    We were out there last year and did not notice the ramps being shut down. If you are a participant I think you may get a launch pass at Nautical,but I am not sure. We launched on the south side of town at Cattail and had no wait at all dropping in or pulling out.

    I haven't heard of anyone having a problem with the ramp being shut down - The marina doesn't like to let performance boats launch, and the ramp at the Nautical is restricted to Nautical guests, but Windsor should be open. I launched at Windsor for the poker run last year with no issues other than the usual weekend warriors at the ramp.

    There is always Cattail as well. I imagine that if Windsor is closed (which it rarely is), LakeRacer LLC could help get a Nautical pass in a pinch...No promises, just a supposition.

    you should not have any problems... if you are staying at the nautical, you can launch there. depending on size, lake level and db level of your boat, you can launch at the marina (buy a 3 day pass, 40 bucks, i think)... windsor will be fine too! in order to be at the places you need to be on the lake for the events, it will require you launch early every am... You will indeed have a fantastic weekend!!!

    This will be the forth year I will attend and I have had no issues with launching at all. Usually drop the boat in around 7 or 8am, the ramps get busy after that but nothing more then normal.

    No biggie....

    Winsor only closes when its full. If your on your way to the water by 8am you shouldn't have anything to worry about. If winsor is full try cattail. I have never seen them closed (The ramp there and workers suck so I would avoid that if you can...lol)

    Hopefully the weather is better for everyone this year as last year was a freaking mess. This will be the first time I have missed it since 05

    Default Rumor?

    I consider Cattail my PRIVATE launch ramp.

    Heard budget cuts forced a closure?

    I am just farmiliar enough with Site 6 to know what a pain in the ass it is. I don't like how steep it is getting the boat on the trailer which is why I don't launch there.
