I just spoke with Wade at Weekend Paradise and he said yes its a go!!!
Per Wade quite a few boats have already committed to coming and it should be a great turnout.
It should be a beautiful day but might be a little chilly so he is going to put heaters on the beach down by the water.
He said if you are bringing a boat to try and get there by 8:00. He will have a drivers meeting at 9:00 and start the BBQ at 11:30.

All V-Drives are welcome and its all free courtesy of Wade and Weekend Paradise.
Come out for a good time and please be sure to thank Wade and his staff for putting this on.

Our day had a few curve balls. We brought my five year old boy and keeping him occupied was a full time job so we did not get pictures. Then we had carb trouble and got all the plugs wet. After swapping plugs it still would not fire and we ended up draining the battery. Then we charged the battery and checked ignition which was working but for some reason it still would not fire. By that time we had to head out to get back to Phoenix, so that was our day. Either way we got to see and make some new friends. It was a long day driving all the way from Phoenix that morning to not put the boat on the water just so we could drive back that evening. But such is life. Sorry that we let you down with the lack of photos Mike.

Thanks to Wade and his crew at Weekend Paradise for putting this on. Not only does he let us use his facility but he BBQ's for everyone too!
It is greatly appreciated.

FC Pilot (Paul),
Sorry to hear of your bad luck. I had to leave before you guys tried to run as my morning hall pass was coming to an end LOL.
The boat looks good though.
It was great seeing everyone.

Happy New Years!

I would love to have met you. Heck, maybe I did and did not put the real name to the internet name. There were some great running boats. We will just have to be “one of those” next year.
