With the last minute drops, I have shuffled boat assignments around a bit. The file on page one has been updated. I will double check housing this evening and alter as necessary. I also have a spreadsheet that I'm working up to show what people owe for lodging & Friday's meal. Those in real beds will pay a bit more than those on cots. As Mary Kay and Skip have dropped, I am taking the bed they reserved. I will pay an additional premium for that.  With my leg pain, it's worth it!

We are asking everyone to pay into the lodging fund except for Martin W, John P, John S, Mike G. & Les L who are hosting people at their trailer/home. 

Friday night's meal s/b about $20. Lodging for both night will be around $40-$45 if you have a bed and $25-$30 for a cot. I have to calculate the numbers and will keep you posted.

I can't thank everyone enough for all your help in pulling this together! Maybe if we sacrifice Golden's old scooter to the fish gods, we will catch some serious fish this weekend!!! :P

Okay, guys, looks like the time is upon us! Ready for the weekend... will head to POC this evening, fish tomorrow (not seriously), then looking forward to an evening grilling steaks, enjoying a few adult beverages, and listening to the TFF laughter and smack as we try to learn what fly others will be using while not divulging our secrets!

So here I sit today at work, heads down with too much to do, with my boat and truck in the parking lot fully loaded with gear, coolers, fly rods. I have to admit my heart is not really  into departmental budgets today!  ???

Looking like a banner weekend gents! Looking forward to it!

I think it's safe to say that those who attended had a great time!. Still some debate as to the winner between Golden & John C. Heck, I think we all won on this outing!

Seems like the fish were a bit finicky this time out. Our boat saw some really nice fish, but couldn't really get them to eat.  It was a little windy out, but we managed. 

I would like to thank everyone for their help. Every single person there pitched in to make it a great outing! Thanks to our cooking teams, boat owners and a special thanks to Les and his family for allowing us to invade his place!

Next up, Bolivar Marsh in August. Keeping it simple next month. I need a rest and to get ready for the Redfish Rodeo!

Perfect...

Can't wait for the next one!
