OK!  THANKS FOR LEADING THIS OUTING MIKE.  SO ALL OF YOU GUYS WITH THE NEW KAYAKS JOIN-UP WITH THOSE OF YOU WHO ARE ACCOMPLISHED 'YAK'ERS SO THAT THERE IS AN EVEN SPREAD OF KNOWLEDGE.  THAT MARSH ISLAND BY THE PARK IS AWESOME DURING A HARD INCOMING TIDE CONCENTRATE ON THE HARD SAND SHORELINES.

That must be a popular weekend. Since Donna called dibs first, I've had to turn down 3 other trips (including this one) that weekend. The good news is that I'll be in Matty Gorder, the bad news is that I won't be fihsing. I hope you have a good trip and or bachelor party.

Tight lines, Chris

I would like to get in on this one.

But alas, I am Yak-less.

If anyone who has one and is not going would like to let me borrow their kayak,  I would very much appreciate it.

Adam,
I have a yak I never use.  Not the standard Tarpon that everyone uses, but it floats.
email me at dlemke@sbcglobal.net if you're interested.

LAST YEAR WE HAD QUITE A FEW.  JOHN P., JOHN AND SHELBY C., SCOTT B., ALEX B., PLUS THE SAILING YAK FLEET.   TOO BAD WE LOST OUR ABILITY TO RECOVER OUR SIGN-IN SHEET FROM LAST YEAR.  BUT YOU ARE RIGHT MIKE THERE ARE A BUNCH OF GUYS THAT HAVE YAKS IN THE CLUB.

HEY ALAN HAVE A BLAST OF A PARTY!  REMEMBER WHEN YOU NEED THAT DOWN PAYMENT FOR YOUR FUTURE WIFE'S HOUSE COMPLETE WITH NURSERY, YOU CAN SELL THAT OLD WORN OUT SKIFF OF YOURS TO ME.  I'LL GET IT RUNNING AGAIN.
