Big Thank You for a great event

Postby MisMarie » Sat Sep 20, 2014 5:40 pm

My wife Jackie and I could stop talking about the great day we both had on the drive home from the G8 gathering at Nickajack. Thank you all for the warm reception and commoraderie. It's been years when we have been able to share in such a small and talented group. We look forward to future gatherings and a longer stay. Blessings to all and success in all you set out to do. Kevin and Jackie Kluck.

It was nice to meet you guys and was so glad you made it up for the day.

But, somehow I missed getting a ride in that beautiful boat of yours.

Next year maybe???

A very beautiful build you have there.
Oak is over rated, everything about it takes extra time; then it warps, splits or checks !!! :roll:

Kevin & Jackie

We're all glad that you came and we met you. I'd love a ride also. But, I'd love to run with you in good water and get a good picture of you. I know how difficult it is to get a picture of your boat running. Come back next year!

I really meant to thank everyone. Thank you for everyone helping everyone! Boat rides, docking, food, cleanup, moving in & out and working on boats.

Thanks Kevin and Ray for lunch and the tour of the dam.

Thanks Neel and Craig for Thursday dinner, a years worth of work getting things getting ready and for the take out help!

Thanks everyone for the food, talk, and most of all the friendship :!:

Neel

That means a lot coming from you! But, my thanks are to you for following up on getting problems at Hales Bar resolved over the year.

With KB and Ray coming in I think we're going to see real changes.

My wife and I both want to thank all who made this event great. We made many new friends and received a lot of encouragement for building a boat of our own.
We appreciate the many kindnesses we received, the great food and warm welcome. We plan to return next year, hopefully with boat in tow. I guess I better order those plans right away.

The third weekend in September works well for us.

warm regards to all,
David and Melissa Fannon
