Thank you all, first for organizing this event but mostly for being so willing to share in your knowledge, experience and the fabulous boat rides. This was my first Gathering so I went in as a newbie/outsider but the camaraderie, family environment and openness of all to share made me feel like part of this really great group.
After two years of reading books, blogs and surfing the internet, I learned a lot in just 1 ½ days at the Gathering. Seeing all the great boats was extremely inspiring and Nickajack Lake is a great location!
