I have confirmed today with Alan that we are good to go!  :D

We definitely need boat people. Anyone needing a ride in a boat should contact a boat person to coordinate. I will try and match people as well, but I do not promise anything!

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

Alan left me a message today that Feb 22 wouldn't work for him as he has family obligations that day, so we are going with the make-up date of March 8th.

Big time thank you to Bill Wallace, Jack Klinger & Don Hanselman for signing up. These gentlemen have boat and are willing to help haul our carcasses around the bay. When I get back from the Guadalupe One-Fly this weekend, I will begin matching people to boats.

Bill also volunteered his place 5 minutes up the creek from Alan's to sleep some of the guys. He has six spots in twin beds. Big time tip of the hat to you, Bill!

Hey y'all,

I'm pulling together the boat and room assignments. Please let me know ASAP if you have made boat plans with someone and if you'll need a place to sleep at Alan's or Bill's and how many nights.

If you haven't signed up, please do so. Boat & room slots are on a first come, first served basis.
