I think there is a combination of reasons. As the forum grows and the gatherings has been pushed a bit more add that to the time of year too[remember the ones that have not been to any in the past has missed ice droplets dripping from their eyebrows] the numbers of early committals increased. [No we are not going to some insane assylum guys] :lol: There will be some that will drop out for numerous reasons and then some that will be added, but all in all, its what it is and for anyone reading and planning for the first time there was a lot of effort put into dealing with the unfriendly atmosphere that the principals encountered the past two years.

I think there is a larger number of finished boats launching this summer. and just thinking out loud, I would like to see the number of launchings in 2010 compared to the previous 4 years. this increases the interest in G4 by a big margin.

Wanted to send a quick update on the cabins

I just called to add another night to my booking. There are only 1- 3 bedroom floating, 2 - 1 bedroom land and several 3 bedroom land remaining.

Looks like we are going to have a mess of folk

Somebody has to cancel! I only promised 20 cabins!

And now, I need to change to a 2 bedroom.

I have a 3 bedroom floating for Fri and Sat as I posted earlier...I haven't heard from anyone interested in sharing yet...I'll give it another week or two, but then I'm going to cancel, so that will open a 3 BR up. I don't like the thought of getting stuck with the full $650 :shock: and you have to cancel at least 30 days out...I'd be interested in sharing something small or I'll sleep on the boat tied to a floater...

Hi Bob.

Could you hold the reservation until closer to the 30 day mark?

Probably in Early August we'll start getting serious about starting a registration list, and finding out who is coming and who needs accommodation. We'll do some of the matching/sharing then, if we need to.

In the meantime, we'd like to reserve as much of the "sleeping capacity" as possible for our group.

Thx.
Bruce.

Since it looks as though the crowd is going to be larger this year, I wonder if there is any way we could tell if moving the dates up had anything to do with the extra interest
I had suggested during the location scouting that the date be moved up or the location moved further south. My wife and I were extremely happy that the date had been moved up, and while we'd probably be attending regardless, the earlier date along with hopefully nicer weather makes us much more enthusiastic about attending. I definitely think more boats will be at G4 with the earlier date being a contributing factor.

I agree Bayou! Some (or most) of us non-canucks got a little chilly especially at night! Bruce was strutin' around in shorts and short-sleves...my only concern is that if it's warmer what's Bruce gonna wear? :shock: :shock: :shock:
