My turn.

First, I want to thank everyone that makes this happen! The regulars do so much in the background. Coordination with Hales Bar, name tags, food, and general planning. Thank you to Tony and the Hales Bar staff. They have really worked hard this past year!

AWARDS:

TOP DOG Janis Joplin Always Positive and Ready (Accepted by Paula Barto)

SALES DIRECTOR Flor Schott She sold the tickets for the 50/50 drawing and raised a lot of money for the kitty.

LLLLONG DISTANT TRAVELERS Peter and Sara Jenkins From Australia.

DEMOLITION DERBY Paul Kane Tried to take out Neel Thompson's cabin backing into it!

IT JUST AIN'T THAT COLD! Jeff Cobb You really should take the earmuffs off of the water intakes before running.

MUFF DRIVER Tyler Reynold He hurt Paul Kane's feelings when his squirt was loader than the Hot Rod. He did wear his hearing protection earmuffs!

MR ADDICTED Mark Coleman He lives on a house boat and has 8 other boats. Six of the are Glen-L.
Other:

Saturday was also Sara Jenkins' birthday. We had a cake, card and sang to her. She also got a pair of southern homemade wine glasses. Thanks go to Tom Juring for picking up the cake in Jasper on Saturday.

The trip to Chattanooga on Friday went great! Thank you Neel for coordinating that. My Tahoe ran great. I had a tough time getting it ready.

Food as always was great! Thank to all who shared!

BTW: The Kitty now has $806.

Mark Coleman I believe is the name you are looking for Mr Addicted.

Friends! Peter (Jenco) and Sara Jenkins spent Tuesday night, after the Gathering, with us. We took them to a real Cajon restaurant. Po'boys, Muffulettas, red beans and rice, and beignets. Then home to the courtyard for wine and talk. A great breakfast then, they were off to Charlestown SC. I really fun visit with great friends!

Jeff

They went to Gatlinburg then thru Nashville. Then to the Space and Rocket Museum in Huntsville. They are here for, I think 3 weeks. I think Key West may be in the plans some place!
