To fish, or not to fish?  What a stupid question!

Stopped by Swan Point last week and talked to Dave. He's looking forward to having us on that Friday. The Hell's Bay Owners are also have a soirée that weekend, so we may make some new friends that weekend.  I'll begin cranking things up this weekend, once I send Tracy to Indy for two weeks.

Looking forward to this one!

If you haven't already done so, please verify that your name is on the sign-up sheet. When we converted to the new sheets, the names were lost. I sent emails to everyone I had on there, but a name may have been missed by mistake.  I want to make certain I have everyone listed for the trip. Thanks.

Guys, we seriously need boats! We only have one person with a boat signed up right now.  If we don't get enough boats,  I see kayaks in many people's future......
