2012 NIOC Loop The Lakes
Pier 57 recently participated in the Northern Illinois Offshore Club’s (NIOC) “Loop the Lakes” fun run. The weather was spectacular and we were proud to debut a new Checkmate 240BRX, powered by a Mercury 300 Verado. Since this was our first opportunity to run the boat, we were impressed with the performance and handling. The open room in the cockpit is ample space for six passengers. With over 20 boats in attendance, three local restaurants played host to the group throughout the day. It was a great opportunity to “ring in” the summer boating season with customers and friends. Mark your calendars for the next NIOC Club event, the “Thunder Run” to be held, July 14th on Lake Michigan. Hope to see you there!
