Re: Who's Going and Where

I don't really care where we have the Gathering as long as the boating and ability to socialize are at least as good as where we are now.

Re: Who's Going and Where

Well some folks that are regulars couldn't make it this year and it wasn't as big of a crowd as last year but everyone had a fantastic weekend.
