I'm willing to be like one of those surgical nurses who hands the Doctors the instruements they need to perform the procedure they are doing. In other words I will hand the wrenches to the mechanics... :D

I'm pretty sure I could come help with the wrenching. My sled isn't coming since it a brand new motor and all, but I'm always up for stupid tricks like riding across water.

I have the day open as of now. Keep me posted.

:blahblah: Hey all---I can supply all the info needed for the Baroda NIMBY Lake race.
First, that phone number posted, chances are slim to none of catching Marky on that. Call him for general info at 269-369-4268. Or call Jay @ 269-426-0525 for racer info.
Admission is $10 for adults, 12 and under are free. Partial proceeds go to Cancer society, Marky just wants to re-coup what he has put in $$ and then have fun!
Hot food will be cooking on the BBQ, unsure of cost, but reasonable I'm sure, BRING YOUR OWN BEER! alchohal is allowed, but can't be sold at the event.
All racers must have helmet, lifevest and min of 20' of 1/2 inch rope with flotation device.
My hubby was over there tonight, we got 5 inches of rain last night, and says the water is looking pretty sweet!
Here is a linki to a fairly decent google map-- http://www.google.com/maps?q=Baroda,+MI,+U...ap&ct=title
Easy access from 94, 12 or 31
Email me or call Mark or Jay of you need anything!
Hoe to see ya all there--it has been darn near a bloody fight to get this and we really want it to be a great success so we can continue next year and the year after!

Yeah, that first number wasn't working too good. Thanks for the map, but we already know where Baroda is. Can you shed some light on where the pond is at?

I'm trying to work it out guys... I'm having trouble convincing someone that everything will be okay. I also have to convert my sled back to all stock panels before I would be able to race it on water. It's more time consuming than you might think. Too many open holes. Maybe I could just use lots of extra duct tape. I may just have to try to borrow a left side door. I'll keep ya posted.

The pond is out behind his house on his 100 acre parcel. On race day the drives will be marked. He lies in a white farm house and there is a big barn out back that says "Empty Pockets". You can actually see it (the property in general) pretty good on Google Earth, although it isn't current enough to see the pond.

My hubby and I live out here near Mark. I used to do some Ebaying for him when he still had his junk shop. The "boys" like to blow stuff up together and all sorts of other crazy schemes.....
Just got back from an impromptu picnic with Mark and the gang, told him about this site and i tickled him pink! All these grown men are just bout doing cartwheeels they are all so excited, he is looking forward to seeing you all! Amy

Let me know keith. I'll even come over and help prep the sled with you. Gobles is a short drive after work for me. I can leave by 3 a night or 2 if needed. I got my permission slip signed, so if this works out, I'm in!!

Keep me posted.

Yeah im free all next week to come and help. Gobles is about 50 minutes away. I do nothing during the week so that would get me out of the house.

How do you get t-shirts for this event? I was at the gas station in town at the corner of john beers and cleveland and i seen a guy wearing a shirt for this.
