Wormdrowner:
Please sign up if you are planning to attend the POC One Fly. We need to get a headcount so that we can match boats & people. We REALLY need people with boats!!

I have made reservations at the Pequod House http://www.cottagecomp.com/pocrental/index.html . I also have Kelley Hazen down for a spot there.  We have room for about 3 more people. It's nothing fancy, but it's inexpensive and comfortable. Contact me directly if interested.

GDSutherland:
I'm on the list! Ready to go... no boat but gas money and a beer cooler.

Wormdrowner:
Okay, for the place I've reserved, I have:

Me
Kelley Hazen
George Sutherland
Scott Breedlove (tentative)

CarpMan:
Unfortunately I wont be able to make it at all that weekend - my better half is away traveling and I will have three wild animals to take care of - and I am not talking about the dogs.
