loto poker run 2020

At least one of us is grinning like a maniac as the three Mercury Racing horse engines propel us at speeds I hadn't thought possible. Donnie has a company that builds bars and houses on docks. Like the boats, and the event itself, quiet cocktails on the deck of a yacht club it ain't. By that time we're all old friends. Docks, lit at night by blue lights to warn off passing boaters, dot the shoreline. This a homegrown event, and everyone here knows each other, even the out-of-towners who come annually. The "fast and loud" theory explains some otherwise inexplicable things, like the remote-controlled boat race, the "mini-shootout," where the winner's speed was It explains why I saw a Shootout racer go mph in a pontoon boat. There are flames and stripes; stripes that turn into flames at the end; flames that fade from yellow to orange; white leather seats with blue and orange trim; lime-green dashboards with blue gauges; and hulls striped with every color of the rainbow. After a while, you begin to appreciate the violent clash of colors. Photo: Todd Taylor. And if you don't like fast and loud, you're in the wrong room. The poker run, one of the main side events to the Shootout, kicks off the week's on-the-water action. Captain Ron himself is less piratical than you might expect. During the Shootout, anyway, the quiet side gets a little loud, as it's home to Captain Ron's Bar and Grill on Buccaneer Bay, ground zero for the race. Locals divide the lake roughly into east and west sides, the St. It's Sunday morning, though, when the crowds are a little thinner, that Bill Tomlinson and Ken Kehoe make the run everyone will be talking about. Loud enough to give the engines a run for their money. In the afternoon, the racers file out of the docks to the waterfront stage facing the beach to accept their awards, and as Tomlinson takes his, he utters the sentiment in the heart of every racer here, professional or amateur: "I think we could've gone a little faster. The current Shootout record of mph no knots here was set in by Dave Callan, racing on the old Shooters 21 course, after which he pretty much stopped racing. One of the distinctive things about the Shootout is that pretty much anyone can enter. The object is to go as fast as you can past the radar gun, which is stationed halfway down the closed two-mile course. But more of that later. Meanwhile, along the shore, under the watchful eye of the Water Patrol, thousands of people anchor and swim, and listen to the radio for the speeds from the radar gun β€” the only number that matters. See any clues that this foot Black Thunder was originally owned by a mortgage broker? Something Dorsey Schroeder said, when he was emceeing the first inductions into the new Shootout Hall of Fame, rings closer to the truth: "To break that barrier, to push it further down the road, that's what we do. You can gauge how well they're doing on screen by how steady the nose of the boat is. And that's just Mike's boat. At the end of the day, the tokens are exchanged for seven playing cards, and the best poker hand wins the money. Racers like two things: They like fast and they like loud. They've never had an accident in the Shootout's year history. Brett Wagner shows up at the helm of a foot Black Thunder, painted with a Monopoly theme by a former owner a mortgage broker. Others are decorated in the rest of the human-visible spectrum, or themed, like the Batman boat with bat-fins and an airbrushed city of Gotham on the front. Boat Insurance. It's loud, fast, and rock 'n' roll. Starting at Captain Ron's Grill, the participants travel to six other places, picking up some token at each. Later, after long hours in the Missouri sun, most participants park their boats and head to the last stop, Shady Gators, for the drawing and general sharing of stories at the packed bar. Donnie's wife Jessica and yours truly hang on in back. It starts out as a low rumble, a single boat making its way across the still lake at the break of day, like an alarm clock for the crowds that will gather later, in the water and ashore. He raced in the first Shootout, but decided it wasn't for him. Louis and Kansas City sides, or the quiet and the noisy side. Passamaquoddy Bay is on the western edge of the Bay of Fundy, a wind-swept place of remote islands. My Way passes the gun at a blistering mph, and after a second run of , the Canadians call it a day and load the boat onto the trailer for the long trip home. In , Tomlinson took issue with the radar speed, saying his GPS clocked faster than the mph shown on the gun, although it was good enough to tie the course record with Hall of Fame inductee David Scott. Join Today! Over the years, the Shootout has grown from a weekend event to a full week of boating festivities. The crowd beats the heat trackside, at a raft-up that stretched for miles. My Way , on its way to victory. His coy responses to reporters have kept people guessing as to whether he will jump back into the fray this year to defend his title from Canadian Bill Tomlinson, who's made the trek from the Thousand Islands, trailering his foot Mystic catamaran My Way and talking a big game about his boat's twin 3,horsepower turbine engines. At the time, it was the largest man-made lake in the country, and it's been a magnet for vacationing boaters ever since, home to hundreds of resorts and beach-town attractions. Racing the faster boats takes a two-man crew: usually a driver, who steers and operates the trim tabs, and a throttle man. Boat Towing.{/INSERTKEYS}{/PARAGRAPH} A popular T-shirt at the shootout features a kid writing on the blackboard over and over, "A poker run is not a race," and it isn't, officially. Elsewhere in the Ozarks, people are playing golf and going on wine tastings, but for the thousands of boaters who turn out, this weekend is dedicated to having fun, and about things that go very quickly through the water. Speculation around Captain Ron's is that if the Canadian makes a good showing, Callan will just have to come out of retirement. On another run, with Dave Weyer as copilot, he hits Both times, he's beaming like a kid with a new toy when he gets back to the dock. The lake was formed in by a dam across the Osage River. Its status as a man-made, privately owned lake the power company Ameren owns and manages it means that houses can be built close to the 1,mile shoreline. Mike's company, Poly-Lift, makes boat lifts and sponsors the poker run. It even explains how I came to love the paint job on Mike Maasen's cigarette boat. I can't say for certain how fast we go, partly because of the wind in my eyes after my sunglasses flew off, but mostly because of the bewildering collection of dials, gauges, and readouts covering the boat's dash. If it were, they could all stay home and write a check. Charity isn't the whole story, though. At one point, the captain of Celebration , a large dinner boat, takes a shot with a speed of 6 mph. The best seats are at the bar at Captain Ron's place, next to the beach volleyball court, with a cold beer and a good view of the screen. Mike Maasen decides to take a shot and passes the radar gun at 91 mph. And that was only the first row. Shootout organizers pride themselves on the event's safety record, and on the precautions they take to keep drivers and spectators protected. The meandering, snake-like lake makes boating the preferred way to get around, and the quickest. Photo: George Denny Jr. It's the Shootout! There is some truth to this. Ask any racer what brings them to the Lake of the Ozarks Shootout, what causes them to drive across the country to a lake in the middle of Missouri, with million-dollar machines strapped to boat trailers the size of semi trucks, to compete in a two-mile race that offers no prize money, and they will all tell you they do it for charity. At heart, though, it's a group of small towns that relies on tourism as its main industry. Others are subtle, with the addition of skulls. Mike is at the controls, his wife Karie and friend Donnie Simpson next to him in front. It's where the central plains head to the ocean, and the thin, winding lake ensures seclusion for just about any activity, be it partying or a tour of the state park that takes up 17, acres on the east end. The trim tabs seem to be the key part, getting the boat onto just the right plane to minimize the drag through the water. Afterward, he tells a well-wisher, "We'll get serious tomorrow. The start of the poker run is signaled by a helicopter passing overhead, and when it passes over Mike Maasen's X cigarette, Just One More , we take off with a sound that renders all other sounds obsolete. You don't even have to be fast. This may be because he's only Captain Ron part-time and has a title insurance and escrow business as his main job under the alias Ron Duggan. I hesitate to explain what a poker run is because the world, it seems, can be divided into those who already know and those who never will. But the signature event is racing down two dead-straight miles that have been cleaned of debris by crews who've been working to make it safe since before dawn. The Shootout is a difficult event to spectate. Still others, the purpose-built race boats that are here to compete for the title of Top Gun, look like they flew here from a distant planet where light reflects in strange new ways, or where neon is an effective camouflage. Most of the people involved in the race, whether as racers or organizers, seem to be small-business men and women. The first day of the race, Tomlinson ties the record, with mph in My Way. But if a little spirited competition breaks out along the way, well, no one seems to mind. {PARAGRAPH}{INSERTKEYS}Why, for the past 25 summers, does a race with no prize money keep drawing thousands of boaters to a lake in the middle of the country? The fastest of the fast takes home the Top Gun trophy. The area around Lake of the Ozarks swells with tourists every summer, and it's home to an infamous "party cove" that attracts hundreds of boats on summer weekends. Movement up and down or side to side causes friction, and friction costs speed. It explains why visiting boaters created a raft-up three miles long. But the rules are simple. A note on the paint schemes of speedboats: They are garish. Connie Weyer, who's been rushing around with a walkie-talkie organizing events, owns Advantage Marine, a chandlery and repair center, with her husband Dave. We sent one of our editors to find out.
