  5. Just to clarify so there is no misunderstanding...the Division of Watercraft has changed the HP limit on Pym to bring it in line with PA's. The Governor signed the new law about a month and a half ago and the new regulations went into effect immediately. The limit on Pym is now 20 HP (just in time to use my recently acquired 18 horse kicker).

    I hope to see you all there...looks like we are running a little lean on board members to run this thing. Most likely find me up at the HQ all weekend. I'll hopefully get to sneak out and fish a little since I'm bringing the entire family to this one.
  6. Just thought I'd share this info with you all as well...2nd VP got the details for us.

    Members, I finally made contact with Penn Ohio MI who has the primative campground reserved for this weekend. OHMC members are welcome to stay there for next to nothing [Everyone staying there would split a $20 fee] if your in a tent, van or pickup. If you bring in a hard top camper it is $13 a night. Directions will be posted at the registration tent when you sign up. If you need more information get in touch with Jerry Fisher, cell 724 813-2685.
