Thought I'd get this little event started so we can get a head count.

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.

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.

Cliff

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

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?

I will be getting in and riding. I earned my sweatshirt, I am not a poser.

If there is room I think I have two more, John R (you guys don't know him) and Dylan.

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!

John,

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

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?

I'm sharing the love this time of year. Poser or no, all are welcome.

Kylie,

We'd love to have you out anytime your in town.

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.

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.

Cliff and Laci,

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.

Thanks for the offer though.

Merry HoHo!

Sorry you won't be there Laci.

Scotty, you aint gettin your hoodie until you make a formal apperance up here.

Hahn, let me know if you guys do decide to come up, we'd like to see the little one.

Jeff, Troy is coming, I talked to him a couple of days ago.

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.

I'm going to be moving to Seattle at the end of January.

If I was there now, I'd definatly join up.

Come February I'll be looking for crew or a pull. Hope to meet you all then.

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.

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

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.

Hey Cliff,

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.

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!

See ya,
Cliff

Oh come on!

I know the video sucked, but it's all I had on my camera. I'm thinking the weather conditions may have had some effect on the riding. Dave said he's working on a real vid for the occasion.

John,

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.

Jakober,

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.

Hey Hahn,

You just missed the torrential down pour shortly after you left.

I've been watching those dvd's for a week now.... awesome way to keep stoke alive with our weather conditions this year.

Thanks Dude!

Jeff,

Sorry for posting you as Keith in the vid, brain fart

Does your gal have any pics I can have from the run?
