Bill, my wife and I have made reservations at the RV Park. I don't have a boat yet, but hope to look,
listen and learn. Hope that's ok.

Russ, that is EXACTLY how I got "roped in" to all of this a few years ago. C'mon up. You're going to enjoy it!

Bill, I plan on being there also. However, I'm not staying at Hale's Bar. I'll be commuting from home as usual.

having a boat never has been a requirement to attend. just thinking about building one is enough :wink:
Don't be afraid to attempt anything. You might surprise your self in the attempt.

Rod is right! But, just interested is plenty. You are welcome!

Bill, I spoke to Chris Silcox yesterday. He and Ann (Not Peggy) will not be able to make it this year. He has started building a Barrelback which he will stretch to slightly over 20'. They will be back with us in TN for G9.

We haven't heard from the SkiKing! Really hope he can make it. Don't have anything from Bob Maskle or Bruce Dow. I know Bruce has conflicts with his girls in college this time of year. Hope he and Brian can come.

I feel good that Bob will do everything he can to come. He really loves an end of season cruise. And, he has free lodging and boat slip in Gulf Shores AL. He has a seat to Chattanooga on Friday for sure!

Bill, I spoke to Bob via email the other day and he will be there. He will most likely have his boat as he wants to do some cruising south of Chattanooga. He hasn't been on the forum much, which is probably why he hasn't responded here. I will be out in Minneapolis in a few weeks and I will be meeting up with Bob and Trisailor for lunch.....I only hope that Trisailor will get his Gentry to a Gathering some day soon. It is truly beautiful!!

I also sent a PM to Ted Gauthier to see if he will be coming and he has a birthday party to attend that weekend for his twin grand kids. He is trying to plan for G-9.

Bob is the silent type. But, he is someone that you can depend on. We'd like to have Trisailor, with or without a boat.

I wonder if Ted can change those B'days? Maybe, he can just bring them and we'll have the party for them. It's worked for me 3 times.

I am sorry to say Katie and I will not make the gathering this year. Katie is out of town on business.

Tom and Peggy will be there - rustic cabin #2
Thursday, Friday, and Saturday night
Bringing Jimbow completed (altered of course)
A shame Gayle won't be there. She knew I
would alter this design, to a simple fishing
boat.
We could have a spare single overhead bed if
someone needs one?
See you there with beer in hand. TOM :)

We had a Big scare this week. Thought we were out this year. But, it looks like all is well.
