    Default 2012 Tom Papp Memorial Event?

    I don't get in this section often so if this has already been discussed, my apologies -- but is there a Tom Papp Memorial event coming up in January at Lake Elsinore? Have enjoyed coming out as a spectator in the past and seeing all the boats. Hope some of the issues from last year didn't spoil it for all.

    if you know when it is and where it is, show up. lets keep this on the down low. every year it gets worse and kinda ruins why we are even there in the first place......

    If i do go it will be without a boat.

    I have been getting a grip of PM's about this deal. I am not the "one" who runs the show.. I go to pay my respects to a past friend.

    Last year was way out of hand with all the ski boats running a muck in the cove with no common curtousy to all the boats on the shore line. I do enjoy seeing everyone coming to hang out and get some winter time on the hot rods, but if your going to come out, please do your hot laps out of the cove. There were way to many rollers almost sinking boats beached in the cove.

    Sure its nice to leg it out, but we need to self police ourselves alittle better. Im as guilty as the next guy as far as racing in the cove, but i tone it down and am off plane coming back in.

    So if your going to come out and enjoy the day, lets keep it mellow and just enjoy meeting new and old friends and all have a good day.

    Weather has held out every year so far for us. I like to think thats Tommy giving us a gift so we can hang out.

    I just dont want someone getting hurt out there or even worse and wrecking the whole deal.

    I was a spectator last year and from the shore it looked like something bad could have happened at any moment, not the way we should have spent the day for Tom.

    I didn't know Tom Papp, so I won't be getting an invite and wouldn't come down from Bako anyway.

    However, the quote above is why some of the 'Other' get togethers here have been such a 'Huge' success. Must be cool to be the 'Elite' of the boating world, at least as you see it.

    Good luck in your 'by invitation only' event. Thank God that even though some Drag Races are by invitation only for the competitors, the general public is welcome to spectate, and is appreciated for their support.

    Evilforce is funny, "The Elite".... that is furthest from the truth!
    Were just jet boat owners remembering a good ol' boy that passed! dont show if you are not there for that reason, you didnt have to know him, just respect the reason why were there, there doesnt even need to be passes made to have a good time, just grab a beer and look at some boats and if its nice?... possibly some tail
    Ill be giving out free hugs for those that are sad in the chonies, just hit me up!
    See you girl s in a couple week (Maybe a few? lol)

    anyone can attend....just asking that people calm down abit and chill and have a good day.

    We are not the elite...as TRG said. Just remembering a friend that has passed.

    Everyone is welcome...Its a really cool day and really an "event" more of a "get together" is all.

    everyone knows when it is and where it is...so show up and have a fun day on the water....

    Thanks for posting that up Futs. Post # 8 blew my mind. Just for giggles anyone that has been attending knows why it is on the down low and as far as getting out of hand, well that started after the first pass in the 5 mph cove and just escalated from there. I, as everybody here is guilty so maybe some need to police the beach so to say or just tell some to be careful and not a kill a good thing for a good reason. Mark
