    Seeing as how I am still on the waitlist and so there is likely no room for me and I have been too busy to remember to rent a PFD until the last minute I will change my RVSP status.

    One last thing, everyone is responsible to bring there own life jacket or risk the chance of getting a ticket.

    Chivalry is not dead, all the men have manned up and either bought or rented rafts which will also accommodate the lovely ladies. I will coordinate the vehicle shuffle too. but at this time all the girls just need to meet us at Brentwood at 1pm (with food, drinks, swimwear) and everything else will be taken care of:)

    I've not yet gone to one of your meetups, but may be into this one. Bought a 2 person raft+life jackets on the weekend, and have a car to get it to meeting spot. I'd just want a ride back to starting point to get my car if possible.
