OK peeps, here it is: The Official Minocqua Mayhem 2007 picture thread!

Please post your pics here if you got em. I have no idea who if anyone, was taking pics besides us. but I would guess there had to be other cameras out there. Here we go!

Here is that AWESOME restored 79 MC of Corey's! I got to ski behind this fine ride! What an amazing job they did on this boat. Just amazing!

Here is Ryan ripping it up on his feet! This Guy can FOOT! We had some "not to great" water conditions due to excess boating activity most of the day and this guy was almost footin on whitecaps at points, and he held it together! Great Footer! Glad to meet you Ryan! Ms. UMP and I enjoyed the day and that brew pub we ate and drank at was awesome!

Hey UMP....How was the fly back up to the UP.....didn't get any super hero calls did you?

barefoot
07-29-2007, 11:12 PM
For people I never meet before, they are all stand up guys! WTRSK1R Steve took us out every morning on his 197. He taught us how to run the course. In all my years of skiing, I’ve never done a course. My PB is 5 buoys @ 15 off at 32mph. Not bad for a guy who jumps on a stick every once in a while.

Barefootinng with Rockman was awesome! We did the boom shots that UMP took right at dusk. 47 was right beside us as UMP snapping picks. The guys in the boats were getting worried because it was getting too dark to see, but both of us were pushing for one more run.

Wait until you see the pics from 47! We taught WTRSK1R and 47 how to jump out of the boat on the boom when the boat was up to speed. So what did we do? Packed 4 guys on the boom cruising at 40mph! Cory, 47’s brother, had the steering wheel cranked all the way to the right in order to keep us straight. There was so much weight and leverage on the boom that it was the only way to keep the boat going in a straight line.

Overall, anyone who missed this event really missed out. Saturday we were on the water at 6:30am and didn’t get off until 9:30pm. 15 hours of skiing, footing, wake surfing, and wake boarding! The whole weekend everyone was smiling form ear to ear! Unbelievable! This was the funnest weekend I’ve had all summer!

Oh.... I see... No pictures of ME surfing!:( At least you got a shot of me sitting on the back of the boat.

Best weekend of the summer for sure! It was great meeting all you guys. I was a little disappointed that DatDude doesn't really look like the guy in his avatar...

Somehow I missed meeting UMP...

Ok Folks, I too must express the High of meeting all of you good people. I can't even begin to say how much of a pleasure it was. I had the time of my life this weekend and only 422 pictures to show for it! So give me a few weeks, (ok hopefully only a few days) to sort through them all and post. There is hardy a bad one in the bunch. Each one goes with a story. so here's the first one...

Great group of TMCers out there on Saturday! Nice to put a face to a name (and boat).

I wished things would have worked out for us to keep the Little One on the boat or at least in the water for the day but she was better off at the hotel. :)


The 214 made it home safe and sound...it pulls alot lighter without a full tank and without all our gear! :D

Flatwater…it’s funny you should say that because we were talking about the warnings on wakeboards that say something to the effect of ‘this is dangerous and may cause injury or death.’ Funny thing is that there is no place to put warnings when you barefoot. I mean, your equipment is your feet!

Besides, I think I take harder falls wakeboarding then I do barefooting!

I wanted to start by thanking everyone that made the trek to the Northwoods for the weekend. I had a great time putting some faces with some names and look forward to doing this again. I really want to apologize for the lack of organization. Going into this event I had no idea what to expect, and I now have some ideas for next year. If anyone else has some ideas I would love to hear them. The weather was perfect which really helped things out.


A huge thanks also goes out to ERK and Chicago Mastercraft for providing two WICKED boats for us to play with all weekend as well. It would not have been the same without ya!:D
