    GREAT TIME!! Thanks to the skippers! Found my G2C shirt in my packed Gasparilla bag. Ready to help dig and repair Todd's sewer line whenever it is scheduled.

    I think Zoel did a great job organizing this meetup. Three cheers Zoel!! It was great seeing everyone and Sue, I believe you have the quickest time from Dock Boy to Stowaway to date!! What a great crew we have. Welcome Terry-maybe we'll have a paddle boat meetup so you can combine your bicycling and boating! Oh, and Bruce (you know which one)...Nice Jig!!!

      Zoel, OOPS! The port engine starter did not engage when running to the boat launch :( So I will be there with life jackets large, small, medium and float coats, but without my Toy Boat. Maybe, someday, somewhere, somewhen, it will be...

      February 15, 2014

  • Zoel

    The weather forecast is still sunny tomorrow... The highs in the 70s... Since the lows are hovering around 50s.... My suggestion ...Let's
    CHANGE The meetup time to 11 AM instead of 10 AM

    Should be a little warmer by then

    Admiral Jan .. Would you concur with this change please

    February 15, 2014

      Are you kids afraid of the water?

      1 · February 9, 2014

    • Patty

      They love the water! 13 yr old no prob; but my youngest is only 4.... Maybe if we ever do Tiki Bar again, i'll bring them so she can play in the water.

    it would be my first meet with you guys!! What do I need to do!!! I don't have a boat but looking forward to fun :)

    February 5, 2014

    • ScottP

      Hi Tracey, welcome to the group. 1st thing would be to RSVP if you think you are probably going so we have a good head count for seats on boats etc..... Not much else needed except to show up. Keep an eye on the discussions, especially this time of the year. As we get closer we will see what the weather forecast is. Boating in 50 degrees may not be high on most peoples list, so changes could happen. Are you familiar with the area of the meetup and Keene Park? Everyone will likely meet at the boat ramp unless otherwise noted in the discussion here. Generally its a BYO...drinks, and snacks etc.

    Just realized that we have tickets for Orlando Ballet that afternoon. You are all welcome to use my boat dock as a base, we will be back about 5pm if anyone still wants a social get together after the boating.

    You are welcome to use my boat dock as a base, either during the day, or after the boating for a social get together, as we have done in the past.
