Yes, I'm new here, so educate me if there is some history on this already!
It should be noted that "they" (as in "Do 'they' hold one....") is not Glen-L Marine Designs. "They" is the active members of this forum who want to get together and meet up to enjoy one another's friendship and comaradarie and experience and knowledge.
The Gatherings are completely organized and produced strictly by volunteers who are extremely highly esteemed and appreciated by us here in the home office (and by everyone else as well). These events couldn't possibly be the warm, friendly, fun and delicious (GREAT food) Gatherings they always are if they were some kind of corporate sales outreach, so we're quite happy to just be visitors and support in any way we can and have the opportunity to hang out on the water with so many friends every year.
We hope that everyone remembers how hard the Gathering organizers work every year to make this wonderful event such a resounding success, and that you all take the time to thank each and every one of them.
