Thought I'd get this little event started so we can get a head count. <BR> <BR>The ride will be on Lake Washington Sunday the 24th along the I90, and 520 bridges. We plan on launching out of the Gene Coulan park at around 10am and ending at around 1pm. After the ride we will be hanging out at the launch for lunch at Ivor's. <BR> <BR>All boarders, skier's, foiler's, and those who just choose to watch are invited. If anyone needs directions or a spot on a boat let me know. <BR> <BR>Cliff

noti_dad 12-07-2006 12:23 PM

I'll drive or shoot video (ballast). Maybe I'll ride if it ain't too cold.

noti_dad 12-07-2006 1:26 PM

FYI - Look what we (you and Jeff) missed this morning. <BR><img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/65919/394635.jpg" alt="Upload"> <BR><img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/65919/394636.jpg" alt="Upload">

I may be in town, last minute change of plans. I'll keep you guys posted.

tcluv85 12-07-2006 4:07 PM

Is this for riders that will get in the water or are you including wimps that won't get in the water again this year? <img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/rofl.gif" border=0> <BR> <BR>I will be getting in and riding. I earned my sweatshirt, I am not a poser. <BR> <BR>If there is room I think I have two more, John R (you guys don't know him) and Dylan.

seajeff 12-07-2006 5:18 PM

Damn I must be jonesing for a pull, this sounds like a great idea.

seattle 12-07-2006 6:54 PM

Laci, <BR> <BR>I don't have the guy who bought your boats number. Call him please. <BR> <BR>Jeff, <BR> <BR>Come to the dark side. It's not that cold... really.<img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/uhoh.gif" border=0>

x2fanatic 12-07-2006 7:45 PM

I used to live in Bellevue, and this was my favorite thing to see ever. I am so glad you guys are keeping the tradition alive.

john30 12-07-2006 8:11 PM

I'm tossin it around....If I can get a couple more from down here I'll tow up.

eaglejackson 12-07-2006 8:55 PM

We had a blast last year. It was a beautiful day. This year though I'm going to be at Snowbird on the 24th. Hopefully they'll have a nice dump of pow pow. Have fun NWHC!

seattle 12-07-2006 11:49 PM

John, <BR> <BR>You definitely need to come again. This time we can actually hook up to bs at Ivor's when were done. That and we could use another big boat<img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/proud.gif" border=0>

garyw 12-08-2006 1:00 PM

Cliff, thanks for the invite. Carol and I will be there to watch, and Kelly wants to ride. I would have bought my boat, but it sold in Sep. ordered the new one last weekend

kylielogan 12-08-2006 1:25 PM

that sounds like so much fun! i swear if i didn't already have commitments here over the holidays, i'd be buying a plane ticket and flying out with my gear to take a pull! HAVE FUN!! post pics!

noti_dad 12-08-2006 1:37 PM

Cliff <BR>***ALERT*** <BR>NWHC has a poser in their midst. <img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/rofl.gif" border=0> <BR> <BR><blockquote><hr size=0><!-quote-!><font size=1><b>quote:</b></font><p>I will be getting in and riding. I earned my sweatshirt, I am not a poser.<!-/quote-!><hr size=0></blockquote> <BR> <BR>Better find out who it is and quickly remove them from your list of HC members. Don't only 'Hardcorest' people get those sweatshirts? What're you doing giving them out to posers?

seattle 12-08-2006 1:42 PM

I'm sharing the love this time of year. Poser or no, all are welcome.<img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/kiss.gif" border=0> <BR> <BR>Kylie, <BR> <BR>We'd love to have you out anytime your in town.<img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/wink.gif" border=0>

I never got my sweatshirt.......<img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/sad.gif" border=0>

tcluv85 12-08-2006 1:52 PM

Hahn - <BR> <BR>I am coming to Phoenix on Sunday, wanna meet me at the airport or at the Seahawk game (or tailgating) and I can pick up the sweatshirt from Cliff and bring it to you???? <img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/rofl.gif" border=0>

seattle 12-08-2006 2:23 PM

Steve, <BR> <BR>I have your sweatshirt, it's the last one I have. Laci can come by and grab it or you can get it in person when you come home for Christmas.

otiswunguy 12-08-2006 5:47 PM

I will be there in spirit. We will be in tahoe visiting family the 21-26. I will never forget the look on Joe and Nicks faces on the way back to the boat launch 2 years ago. I thought Nick was going to start crying. Maybe somebody will post the other pics. <BR><img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/65919/395120.jpg" alt="Upload">

Cliff, <BR>Where is my sweatshirt that I paid for last Spring?????

solo 12-09-2006 11:20 AM

Cliff and Laci, <BR> <BR>I won't be able to make it out to the Game tomorrow, it's my 28th Birthday..... Plus a decade. Hence I will not be moving off the couch tomorrow. I may be up for Christmas, but I'm not sure yet. <BR> <BR>Thanks for the offer though. <BR> <BR>Merry HoHo!

seajeff 12-09-2006 2:57 PM

Cliff- havent talked to Troy to check if hes going yet, but if there is a spot on a boat, I'm in.

seattle 12-09-2006 3:02 PM

Sorry you won't be there Laci. <BR> <BR>Scotty, you aint gettin your hoodie until you make a formal apperance up here. <BR> <BR>Hahn, let me know if you guys do decide to come up, we'd like to see the little one. <BR> <BR>Jeff, Troy is coming, I talked to him a couple of days ago. <BR> <BR>John, have you decided whether or not you coming up? It would be nice to have another big boat in the mix so we can all ride in comfort.<img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/proud.gif" border=0>

john30 12-09-2006 7:37 PM

I may be out of the mix guys.... I'll keep you posted. I really want to go too. I haven't ridden for a bout a week and before that it's been probably three. Been workin some crazy overtime.

john30 12-14-2006 5:01 AM

I'm definitely out. I have to work Christmas Eve. <img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/angry.gif" border=0>

seattle 12-14-2006 8:11 AM

Sorry to hear that, maybe next year. Or if you ever want to do some winter riding, your more than welcome to come up.

goinbigg17 12-14-2006 3:02 PM

I would be down to join if I wasn't going to the game that day. Looks like it would be a blast to join in on! <BR> <BR> <BR>Have fun!

plhorn 12-14-2006 5:03 PM

I'm going to be moving to Seattle at the end of January. <BR> <BR>If I was there now, I'd definatly join up. <BR> <BR>Come February I'll be looking for crew or a pull. Hope to meet you all then.

john30 12-14-2006 7:57 PM

Thanks Cliff I appreciate the offer. I wouldn't mind takin a pull behind your new Nauti. Never been behind one. And hey the offer is likewise for you if you're ever down south and we're ridin. I ride all winter long too but I got on this project at Boeing where they're footin all the o.t so we're workin 7/12's for the probably another 3-4 weeks. Been pretty hectic seems like the days run into eachother. Maybe next Christmas. Enjoy the endless butta! Post pics and vids too those are always cool to watch.

plhorn 12-14-2006 8:08 PM

Hey John30, <BR>I'm a Boeing guy too, I guess its not that rare in Seattle. Maybe I'll see you in the water.

john30 12-14-2006 8:28 PM

Phil I'm not a Boeing employee I'm actually a carpenter that that works for a subcontractor to Boeing (Omega Baja). We are building equipment pits for some new milling machinery. Scheduled to be installed first couple weeks in January. There are only three of us carpenters and a few laborers trying to meet a pretty tight schedule. They are even doing a big shutdown this saturday but are paying for some big generators so that we can keep pluggin away. Pretty crazy.

seattle 12-15-2006 7:41 PM

Phil, <BR> <BR>Your more than welcome when you hit the northwest. Just email me, and we'll hook you up.

plhorn 12-18-2006 11:05 AM

Thanks alot Cliff, <BR>I just got a dry suit, and am waiting impaitently to try it out. <BR>I'll drop you a line once I'm settled in.

daren 12-18-2006 3:17 PM

Lewis and I are in. Do you have an elf suit that will fit me?

seattle 12-18-2006 6:43 PM

Oh we'll dress you up special for the run.<img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/lol.gif" border=0> <BR> <BR>Here's the forecast, it's actually not bad. <BR>http://www.weather.com/weather/weekend/98052?from=36hr_topnav_undeclared <BR> <BR>(Message edited by SEATTLE on December 18, 2006)

hahn's on his way up. make sure you call and invite him to ride.

seattle 12-22-2006 4:34 PM

Hahn's in Ashland Or. as we speak. He's bringing Mike's new board, and a bunch of DVD's up with him. We plan on hooking up at Ivor's for lunch after we ride on Sunday.<img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/wink.gif" border=0>

dakid 12-22-2006 4:35 PM

cool. have a merry christmas!

foilin_fool 12-23-2006 9:19 AM

Hey Cliff, <BR> <BR>I've got a few Foilin Buddies that'll probably be there. Bill, Kevin ya'll going? Ya'll have fun. And try to stay warm. Temps today near 80 here. <BR> <BR>See ya, <BR>Cliff

seattle 12-23-2006 11:47 AM

Cliff, <BR> <BR>We see those guys every year. The foilers are actually the ones who got us started a few years back.

foilin_fool 12-23-2006 12:28 PM

Hey Cliff, <BR> <BR>When you see Kevin Chong, ask him about the Left-handed marshmallow throwing fight we had at our condo at the GA Mountain Flyin. I can't remember when I laughed so hard. <BR> <BR>Just get a group of skiers/foilers together, add a beverage of your choice, a bag of marshmallows and you can only use your left hand to throw! Very funny! <BR> <BR>See ya, <BR>Cliff

solo 12-23-2006 9:46 PM

Right, like I'd get in that freezing water....<img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/sad.gif" border=0> Made it to town and hope to see you guys for some chowder tomorrow.

jaegermaster 12-26-2006 8:03 PM

That was a lame video. No offense to the riders, or the video taker but come on!!! Not only was I not included in the video, there wasn't even mention of my expert driving, the precise speed control or my happy demeanor. What a gyp. <img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/kiss.gif" border=0>

john30 12-26-2006 9:24 PM

Nice....would've liked to have joined you guys, maybe next year. I did skip out on work though. Took a quikie at American. <img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/65919/399026.jpg" alt="Upload"><img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/65919/399025.jpg" alt="Upload">

Oh come on! <BR> <BR>I know the video sucked, but it's all I had on my camera.<img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/uhoh.gif" border=0> I'm thinking the weather conditions may have had some effect on the riding.<img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/crazy.gif" border=0> Dave said he's working on a real vid for the occasion. <BR> <BR>John, <BR> <BR>Sorry we didn't see ya this year. It was a fricken sunami out there so I would have felt guilty if you had traveled all the way up. Looks like you at least got out for a Christmas run though. <BR> <BR>Jakober, <BR> <BR>I should be getting my setup in a week or two. The Natural is in real high demand for the dealers so their backlogged on production.

otiswunguy 12-28-2006 11:28 AM
