Hello Deltaite's

A small group of us from Seattle are going to be heading down to the Delta to visit Christie Fisher and do some riding Nov 20-21.

I've been skunked the last two times I was down there, once due to timing, and the second you guys had the worst rain storm in twenty five years. This time, I don't care if there's a fricken hurricane, I'm riding the Delta.

We'd love to meet some of you guys if your interested in hooking up.

I'm down to hook up and bring my boat out. I'll try to coordinate with Christie as we get closer.

Umali,

It would be great to ride the Delta with you. My only fear is whenever your in Christie's boat, something always seems to go wrong.

J-Rod,

That sounds great, I'll give you a call when I get a chance.

that's fine. the delta isn't like seattle where it's impossible to get a pull. i'll be in someone else's boat!

Umali,

You never missed an invite on my boat.

Why don't you drag your but up there for the weekend.
Old    Joe Umali (dakid)      Join Date: Feb 2001       10-27-2004, 6:29 PM Reply   
we'll see. the problem is the following weekend, which is thanksgiving weekend, the girlfriend and i are headin' up to south dakota to spend the holiday with her family. so i'm not so sure she's going to want to travel on the road one weekend, and fly the following weekend. we'll see tho.

Everyone cross their fingers for perfect Delta weather for Cliff's virgin delta run (hmmmm...can Cliff and Virgin be used in the same sentence??)

Joe - You guys should come up, but you and I will have to ride in separate boats for sure! I know Henry probably doesn't want us in his boat together ever again!!

J-Rod - shoot me an email and we will coordinate!

I'm there. I've been real busy since moving to Sacramento and would love to get back on the water that weekend. I'll either bring my boat down or talk to Mark about going out on his boat that weekend. I'm sure that Christie will be riding both days, but is there one day versus the other that everyone would like to meet up? I'm assuming that everyone will be meeting at Orwood.
Let's hope for great weather that weekend. It should be fun.

I might just have to roll out to the Delta for this meet and greet...of course I still do not own a boat.

I have the whole weekend off, but the wife might have other plans. I'll see if I can talk her into sticking around. Should I heat the hot tub?

No wonder you like the Delta so much Joe. It's a Boat Whore's paradise.

Thanks for the interest folks, we're looking forward to meeting as many fellow Wakeworlder's as possible while we're down there.

Hey,

Doesn't the same saying apply while visiting the Delta that applies when one is in Vegas???

Christie,

Should I bring my fire jumping gear?

your right rob...what was i thinkin'...it's absolutely cool for married people to get nekked with other people. it's when people start throwin' lines, then there's a problem. lines, such as, "hey...you got it goin' on!"

It was beautiful yesterday at Ultimate Water Sports demo day. Water temp was 62, air temp was 68. Both will probably drop another 5 in the next couple weeks, unless we have a hot spell.

Mike,

I'll ride like I've died, and gone to heaven if those are the conditions when we're down there.

We rode Saturday afternoon, Water 52, air 50, and we considered it a warm day for this time of year.

My boat is going in the shop this Wednesday but I would like to hook up. If anyone has some room, it would be appreciated. However, there is an off chance that I'll be headed to Tahoe for the weekend. Wont know until later in the week.

Hope all is well. For me, things have never been better,

I hope you guys have fun down. I will surely miss going out with you guys on Saturday. Get lots of riding in.

At least Brad has meds to make it through the nice weather this weekend here in Seattle without going out on the boat. Maybe he can share some with me to help me get through it. I will be here dreaming of that w2w I still haven't made.

We better bring plenty of liquor. Depending on which forecast you believe, calling for 9-16 mph winds out of Brentwood. That's usually enough to keep me home even in the summer, but oh well, have to suck it up when the Seattle crew is in town!

I'm showing winds at 10-15 for Saturday. That's not bad. You'll find plenty of good places to ride.

Christie and Cliff, thanks for trying to hook me up but I have a rather full weekend. Next time. Hopefully, that will be at Shasta Lake some time this summer.

Have a great trip. Enjoy the water!

Best regards,

Matt Paquette
