G-11

Looks like the same dates next year. We may want to officially add Thursday. Many are coming on Thursday anyway to make the river run!

The Kitty started at about $620. After a few expenses, I don't have the bill for the Koozies yet, it looks like we have right at $800.

So, just to be sure....

This will be September 14-17, 2017? Is this correct?

I haven't looked at the calendar. But, that is what they said in the office.

I'm having a difficult time waiting for it already. :(

I mean, it just seems like we have all this anticipation, then finally... it's here and then WAM!! It's over and we are all waiting again.


Dang in anyway. :cry:

Looks like a weekend I won't be needed next year!

I don't think a year is nearly enough for me to get my act together, but maybe, just maybe, I can fake it enough. :lol:

I was happy that so many people liked the "G10" design. I thought the T-Shirts turned out GREAT, as well as the cuzies.

I know G11 is a year away, but I went ahead and made another one. Humbly submitted for G11...

Great start.
Could you try making the deck planking grey with white lines. Would look more like a mahogany runabout.
Just the boards in the middle, not the cover boards or king plank.
