I wanted to make this a seperate post from the other threads about the Butte Poker Run.
It was never my intent to say we didn't have fun. I just wanted to voice the opinion of others and myself who particpated.
How can you not have had fun on a day like tha!
But you know $'s are tight right now. Every $ we have means a lot to all of us. All of us are more critical as to where it goes and what we get back.
1. Jim Nichols is a Class Act! I probably vented to much in his direction. I apologize.
He was and is concerned about how it came off more than me. His name is associated with it and he values that.
2. Groups are hard to get together and get people to aggree. But why don't we as NM boats help out. We all have contacts let's use them to make this one of the Best Events in New Mexico. Instead of me bitching because I didn't get my Vodka Friday night, MD assured me I won't go without next time. Let's all work together to put on a party for next year.
3. Let's make it a weekend that a large group of people can get together and have fun together.
From families to beer drinkers to bass fisherman, jet boaters and whom ever wants to join. Have a car or bike rally the same weekend. Invite vendors to show off their goods. Maybe having one of you all with fancy boats have them at the State Fair prior to the Run would be neat. State Parks Dept. would like some publicity.
So from Friday at 12PM until Sunday at 5 PM there is something going on.
You can't please everybody all the time.
But let's make this something we'll all be proud of in New Mexico.
To any of you whom thought I insulted I apologize. Even you Dutch and Ultrafast.
I'm very passonite about New Mexico, boating and customers being happy.
I've already to to friends an family and they've volunteered.
I welcome any feed back.
Anybody who wants to help to start now for next year, give me a call.
This is all on a volunteer basis. Let's make it worth Lake Racer and Power Boat Party time to come over and put on an event.
Thanks to you all.
