In 2 weeks, I'll be there. I hope to go up on Wednesday and trying to break-in my engine enough to take it to Chattanooga on Friday. Neel, Craig and Bob M. said they would help.

This is going to be a good time folks. Hope you can come! This is the 10th Gathering. The first was 8 years and 11 months ago. But, it took a year to put the first one together.

We've got a lot of great people and boats. So, Please Come!

We will be there for you Bill.... I called the Big River Grill and got us the entire mezzanine (upper level room). We could have as many as 40 there for lunch if the weather is nice. I will wait a bit to reserve the marina spaces for our boats until I get a better count. I talked to Tony and we may be having the Spaghetti Dinner Thursday evening in the Hales Bar meeting room. They have tables and a kitchen and it is a lot bigger than our cabin. Could be a big turnout for that also. It is in the building next to the office. I never knew they had a "Meeting Room". See you soon......Neel

This is looking good! Thursday, let me know what to do to help with dinner. I think we may have to declare this a 4 day event next year! It seems that is what is happening anyway.

We'll be there sometime late morning on Wednesday. The plan is to stay 2 nights at the Marion Co park and Fri/Sat at the docks.
Looking good, See you all then!!

A week away. Starting to get ready. Closed the pool over the weekend. Had to do it a little early to avoid waiting later in September. Today the pool guys blew out the lines and added antifreeze. Rich took the afternoon off so we could install the new winter cover. We also set up our new popup to make sure everything was in order for G10. But the really big news was somebody wants to put 10.5 million dollars in our checking account. Wow.

See you in a week.

10.5 mil! Looks like the weekend is on Roberta! The IRS has filed a Federal Law Suit against us. All we have to do is send money to NW New York! :lol:

I know! It was 90 here yesterday. But we needed to schedule a week when we had a weekend to drain the pool down. Long story. But we usually don't swim much after Labor Day. Weather is too iffy.

Bill I didn't even bother to task Ray with making us name tags because I figured My wife and I may be the only people of African descent at this here gathering may be wrong but those who already know us will know who we are those that don't we will introduce ourselves. Looking forward to the awards we are already a shoe in for Koozies. wish I could do the Jerk chicken but alas you guys live so far away it is difficult to bring the spices. Now I am getting real anxious to see my old friends. See you all next week coming in Thurs.
