Well, I hate to say it, but I don't think a rally is going to happen for 2019. Losing Grider as a host really sucks. I tried State Dock but they already have an event planned for that weekend and I'm not sure how Dale Hollow is going to work out. Plus, my heart just isn't into it this year. Hopefully it will be back for 2020.

Well, that’s to bad for everyone interested, fortunately I have my reservations made for The Boyne Thunder Run (as an observer of course) for the 2nd wkend of July it’s a often called the premier poker run of season. I’ll be enjoying my favorite waters of northern Michigan for the entire week of! I’m inviting everyone up!

I know there are very few decent (large enough to run fast, not crowded, etc) lakes in the OH/MI/IN area but what about an informal one day CM gathering later in the 019 season? Even early September time frame?

Just a thought-

Since it looks like the Rally will not be happening this year does anyone have any interest in meeting in IL/MO for a gather up. It doesn't have to be the third weekend and there are quiet a bit of options... Shelbyville Lake, Ozarks, Table Rock, or river runs are fun here around such as Grafton IL and St. Charles and have plenty of amenities as well.

The Rally at Lake Cumberland has always been a blast. It all started with a few people making a little plan. It turned into 5 or so houseboats being rented(6 bedrooms on most) ,Checkmate reps available all weekend with some swag, bands playing, the lodge fully booked, 20+ boats running hard and lots of laughter and new friendships. I highly recommend someone making the move to keep this going at other lakes . I no longer own any Checkmates but the memories will always be there. Was always something to look forward to. I hope others will step up and keep it going. Take care all.
