I had a great time at the Fred Hall Boat Show yesterday snapping pics of Watson, Henshaw, Ruck,
Harrington and Shane Bonifay. This was the first show of 11 that will go through the weekend,
but these guys were already trying to outgun each other. Check out how far off the slider and wall
these guys were getting. Shane set the bar, but I think Collin may have raised it with a few of these.
Chris Resnick (crracer) gets credit for some of these pics. Thanks for the help, Chris.

If you haven't gotten out there to check out this show, you should definitely do so this weekend.
Chad Sharpe arrived last night, so he'll be out there as well. You can find all the details at
http://www.wakeworld.com/getarticle.asp?articleid=1061.

Afterwards, we headed up to casa Wakesports and had a poker tournament. I went out in third (out of 16)
after a bad beat on the river by the eventual winner, Ryan. Tyler took second on his home turf with
his wife dealing (there may be some ethics issues there).

It was really fun hanging out with all the pros and everybody else. Lots of great people. Enjoy the pics.

The setup. Much nicer than last year. DBG Concepts did an incredible job building everything!

A little out of focus, but check out how much of his board is off the wall. The second pic is the same thing from a different angle...

Here's your invite: http://www.wakeworld.com/getarticle.asp?articleid=1061. Your boat (Epic) was there. I was surprised not to see you as well!

Thanks. That's why I like taking pics at the rail jams so much. You can get so close that even an amateur like me can get some good shots. They had the TV stations out yesterday and I was hiding under the first flat rail with my camera. I would snap a pic and then duck down before I got decapitated. The news guy said he wasn't sure if he should be filming the riders or me. I think I might have made the news last night! :-)

Yes, you do see Jeff "Fartin'" Barton trying his luck at the poker table. He was doing great until he took a monster loss late in the game. I think Ruck stole most of JB's money.

Joe, if you were at the rail jam I'm sure you could have wrangled an invite. Have fun in Stockton.

Tim, follow the link above for times and location.

Unreal pics! Good job!

Looks like good times were had by all.

And that's the Wednesday night? Friday and Saturday night should be quite entertaining to say the least.

Life is good!
