Gatorfest & Boat Ride

Alligators, a boat tour to see the wildlife and a mud the dress all in one day??? Yup! We will start with a early morning boat ride to see if we can catch a glimpse of the wildlife in Anahuac that will include birds, snakes, alligators, etc, then we will go to the Texas Gatorfest and shoot the scenes of the carnival, the bringing in of the gators and the bands playing. A full day of fun, so sleep well the night before, because this one is epic!

    This message is not for David, Crystal, Tony, Michael, Ron, Kaleigh, Wayne, Matt, Tracy or Doug. This message is intended for people who clog the RSVPs with a yes, and then choose not to change their RSVP to no, or those who just think it's not a big deal to not show up. Just so you know, it is a big deal. 21 were scheduled, so, I brought in another boat to haul us all around. Someone took time out of their day to get their boat ready, put the trailer on the truck and drive to the boat ramp, and then take the boat off the trailer into the water. They could have slept, it was their Saturday too, but because we needed another boat they had no problem. It's unfair of you to think it's not a big deal. Maybe I'm different, because I wouldn't plan a meetup and be a no show, I wouldn't promise a boat and not have one. So if your name gets taken off an upcoming meetup, or deleted out of the group for multiple no shows, I'm sorry. I don't think you are a bad person, just maybe a bad planner.

      I've signed up and looking forward to it. However, I'm starting a new job Monday and I'm not sure what my schedule will be like that weekend. I'm not going to ask off for it quite just yet. :)

    We are headed to the boat ramp. When you get off at exit 807, immediately take a right at the brown sign, head down the long road, you will curve left, then right, left again, another left,. At stop sign take right, next stop left then all way down to boat ramp on right. Call if you have issues.

      Shawn, if you sent anything, I still didn't get it. Perhaps I can send you my direct email address?

      September 13, 2013

    • Crystal

      September 13, 2013

  • Matt F.

    September 13, 2013

  • Wayne

    I will not get to go. But it sounds like there will be another chance to do Mud the dress. So I will look for that date when set. I have been to Gator fest it is a lot of fun. Air boat if never been in one is cool.

    1 · September 13, 2013

  • Shawn S.

    Tonight a map will be sent to those signed up via your email, so be on the lookout. One of where we will start with the boat ride, and the other of the Gatorfest.

    Ok, our mud the dress is going to have to be changed to a different date, due to our mudders are all pageant queens. Yes, we have pretty models, and the Gatorfest pageant is a pretty big thing in these parts, but the Gatorfest is awesome fun, and an early morning boat tour will be a lot of fun. You can go to www.texasgatorfest.com for more info. I will be emailing the map to our boat ramp on to each of you Wednesday.

    • Shawn S.

      Tracy, I don't know if we will need a model for the carnival, but I'm up for anything if y'all are.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
