Thanks everyone for the photos and videos. We'll figure out a way to get everything together so it's easily accessible. Matt, your video really shows a majority of the boats and Jeff, very nice job on your compilation video. The drone footage from Tony is awesome! And, of course, the video of the boy band is great--all you need is some choreography and you can take that on the road :D Neel's photos are wonderful as well and all of the comments. Bill, the awards are fun and funny as usual. Thanks to you and Lauren for all you do. What a great turnout!

I didn't see Ray and Vicki and their True Grit in any photos--did they not make it this year?

Wish you were there. It would also been great to have had you and John here with Pete and Sara with us last night.

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!
Wow, they're not spending much time in one place. They might enjoy an American Football game. They'd probably enjoy Disney. There's not a lot to see in Baton Rouge, but If they're coming this way, we'd welcome their visit. I just sent a PM to Peter (jenko).

We had a great time at G-12 this year. We even had Peter and Sara come halfway around the world to ride in the Aquatron.

Monday morning just after sunrise Melissa and I prepared for one last cruise before we packed up to return to Columbus.
The Hales Bar Dock was extremely quiet compared to the bustling activity just a couple days before.

Nice videos folks, looks like a lot of wood showed up this year. Luckily you were able to have decent weather and of course a lot of food as the storm blew thru our region.. :) Did True Grit not make it this year?

Just a quick side note,,, I don't know if it was the mechanic's fault or a combination of the factory or possibly the factory providing parts, if his engine is out of warranty. I had a problem with a new 60 Honda with less than 70 hours on it. A true nightmare took place and I ended up having to upgrade to a 100 just to get done with the engine. NO refund, replacement or any interest from Honda directly. The dealer got stuck with the 60 after going far and beyond their obligation.. Then I sold the 100 and no longer use any Hondas. Honda factory was zero helpful for my local dealer. I hope he gets his engine back up and running. His season is much shorter than ours, making the loss of any days really tough. Anyway glad you guys had another successful get together.

By the way are you going to the Madisonville show in two weeks?

We won't be at Madisonville. we're going to the Gallopades Islands and Machu Picchu. Butch and Paula Barto, and Jeff and Melanie Cobb will probably be there.

With the confluence of Sofia's volleyball schedule and my unexpected work trip, I didn't get to spend as much time at G12 as I had hoped. Ironically, if not for Hurricane Florence, I wouldn't have gotten to attend G12 at all. I'm thankful that Dylan and I got to attend the spaghetti dinner this time around. (Dylan has since been trying to mimic Neel's spaghetti sauce — and doing a darn good job of it!) The food was excellent, and it was great to see everyone there & at Big River on Friday. And, I was happy that the t-shirt design seemed to go over well this year!

Hopefully, I'll get to spend more time at the marina for G13. I'm looking forward to it!

Oh, and for what it's worth, Sofia's team just finished up a superb 15-1 season!

Mike, the t-shirt design is killer. Sorry we didn't get to talk more. Hope to see you next time!
