4:1 Jerry's Meet
Display

We usually have a good water to run our boats, so bring a couple of motors to run and remember Jerry's nick name is "4 to 1"! For those of you that don't know why we call him that, it's because he's been trying to kill all the mosquito's at the lake by running his gas & oil ratio at 4 - 1 since he was a little tyke. So we all have to help Jerry in his vandada and keep the blue smoke flowing!
