Sit 'N Sip V

Ok, we put our heads together and didn't come up with much. We did however, come up with something. That 'something' turned out to be two new ideas. The first I will tell you about, the second will be kept secret. The 'first' is this night is Night in the Islands at the Docks. The City will close off most of the street and some really cool, authentic Greek culture will abound. The Admiral and I really enjoy this event and we think you will also. The meet-up will start at the usual place and then we can slink on down the street. Should be a fun night, and "NO", I will not spill the beans about the secret-you just have to trust me on this one. Hope to see you there!

    Have fun at these EVERY SINGLE TIME. Fun & interesting folks. Good to see some 'regulars' each time. 'Nite in Islands' didn't distract from parking or good time, but isn't really a 'draw' (would prefer a Tarpon non-event Friday/Saturday).

      Jim is SO not the 'correspondent'­ or 'social secretary', Brian, but he DOES appreciate you and these meet-ups. It was he that suggested you and Chris might like to pop over for happy hour tomorrow (Sunday)? [masked] ... if not 2morrow, we'll find another (better) time. Changed 'our' ('Jenny's'­) photo for less gender-identity confusion :-). Will try (soon) to put one of several we just recently dug up that actually show each of us at a tiller :-)

      Earth to RAVEN, come in, RAVEN ... should I make guacamole for tonight or are we looking at a future evening?[masked] mobile or # above (best).

    A great time and great people. Gigi enjoyed the Greek dancing and I enjoyed Jake

      Jake did do a good job being our DJ for the evening!

      Even if he does look like the Geiko gecko when he dances.... 'Devil with the Blue Dress', NEXT time .... Jen & Jim

    Always great time with you fun and interesting folks; good to see returning 'regulars' as well as newbies. No need to have this on 'Nite in the Islands' nights where WE'RE concerned (glad it didn't affect parking, for us). See you all (with two new 'recruits, I hope) next month.

    Gena-I guess Poseidon sent his spy (the crab) to keep an eye on me for some reason!

    July 13, 2014

    • Gena

      Yeah, Poseidon knows what a bad ass pirate you are! But if you noted, it didn't rain on us...again. So you must be doing something right!

    Yet another very fine evening under the stars in Tarpon Springs! These events just seem to be getting better and better! Looking forward to the next one. So many new faces too. I love to see it growing!

    1 · July 13, 2014

    • Brian

      I agree Gena-was a really good turnout. Hey, are you going to Whiskey Joe's?

      1 · July 13, 2014

    • Gena

      I may go, but the damn parking is such a pain in the @ss there.

    Thank you, Brian, for a great evening. Its always nice meeting like minded people who are passionate about the water and boating. Some of the people are incredible; Lucy and John (I hope I got his name right) built that boat themselves? Wow.. Now that's amazing. So, for a group that put it's heads together, and "didn't come up with much," I cant wait to see what happens when you have some brilliant ideas!

    July 13, 2014

    • Brian

      You're quite welcome Gail and thank you for attending. Yes, John and Luz built that trawler by themselves out in Utah and had it trucked down here. They are voyaging south today and I will miss speaking with them. They were the real thing. God keep them safe. I don't know if I'll ever have a 'brilliant' idea but I do come up with some funky ones from time to time! Hope to have you aboard Raven and will be seeing you.

      That would be Mike and Luz. John is not that industrious to build an ENTIRE boat from scratch!!!! Lol

  • Jacquie

    Definately "thank you Brian and Chris"! Another wonderful time. Not sure if I sweated more last night with "cha, cha, cha and greek dance lessons" or today fixing Conchy Jac's leaking water tank issue in the FL heat, but hoping the combination will make allow me to eat with no guilt this week! Looking forward to the next one.

    1 · July 13, 2014

  • Brian

    For everyone who has and has not posted yet about last night, I want to say thanks for making the effort to come out and meet everyone. I never knew we had so many good dancers in the group. Makes sense though, if you have 'sea legs', you gotta be able to 'move about'! I look forward to seeing you all at the next meet-up. Did everyone enjoy the Greek culture down the street?

    Very nice to meet you all. Brian & John - great hosting and a really nice Tayanna.

      Captain John Thomas-my neighbor-as always, I really enjoy you and Captain Jennifer (also my neighbor)! Thanks for the gift.

    I had to change my plans at the last minute. I "may" be there eventually but VERY late. I'll look around for ya'll!

    July 12, 2014

  • Brian

    Just want to put this out there-This meet-up will happen tonight rain or shine. If it starts raining, depending on how hard it comes down, will determine if we stay at the marina or go across the river to Captain Jack's. Either way, tonight is a go. My cell is[masked] if you need anything. Hope to see you all there.

    Is there a specific route you're taking? If not, how do I find you guys if I'm late? Thanks!

  • Jacquie

    Awesome for posting that Brian, I'll be there. Got home a few ago from Tampa Bay Watch bay clean up in a kayak (everyone should join and give back to our waters) but now smell like a mangrove rat. There are some big ass spiders in those mangroves. Will get cleaned up and be there for sure. I suggest that if you drive to Tarpon Springs Marina, and don't see the gathering, just dial Brians cell. I know he'll guide you into the party.

  • Eugene I.

    That's good. I was just going to ask what the back-up plan was should it be needed, now I know thanks Brian.

    July 12, 2014

  • Brian

    Well, I see new people as well as people I have met before signed up for this meet-up. I have "Welcome" to say to the new people and "Welcome back" to others who have come before. This should be a good night and I wanted to suggest bringing a chair. I'm trying to get other Captains to bring their boats up but sofar we have four that are going to be there. Two will be motor boats (be kind!) and two will be sailboats. I know it's daunting to meet new people in an established group. All I can say is you only have to meet someone new once, after that it's a whole lot easier to speak to them. Make the effort-it's worth it.

    • Jacquie

      I've got a tight timeline tomorrow as I'm down by Ft. Desoto in the morning, so going to have to see how the day goes. I think I'm pushing my time to get to marina before they close. Might have to wait for the next one to bring Conchy Jac round. Will see how the day goes, but will call if I can do it all and need a hand.

      July 11, 2014

    • Brian

      no worries Jacquie-arrive however is most convenient for you.

      July 11, 2014

  • Dennis

    how to find you all if I'm a bit late? Thanks DJ

      Hello Dennis-please see my reply to Kathi above your past. Thanks for coming.

    Where are we meeting?

    July 9, 2014

    • Brian

      Hello Gina! We will be meeting in the parking lot to the west of the Harbormaster's office. Park anywhere there isn't a sign and you'll be fine. The parking lot is shaped like an 'L' and we will be in the 'short' end. You'll see us there as I will be there early. See you then and thanks for coming.

    Secrets? Ooh the possibilities? This should be an interesting guessing game. Raven and Thomas Too are so happy together they are trading their single slips for a double? Raven is announcing new crew in 9 months? Capt Tom has succumb and is installing a mast and rudder on his charter boat? Capt Tony is relocating his bar from KW to the sponge docks?

    Unfortunately, we can't make it this go round. I'm sad that I'll miss the big secret, but, we've had plans for a couple of months.

      Brian, if you are scheduling the next couple for that specific night, I'll go ahead and mark our calendar so we don't miss any. Let me know if it changes. You know I don't like to miss this event!

      Hello Suzanne-heck-bring her along also if you like.

  • Effie D.

    Well, being Greek I suppose I should go just so I can help steer everyone in the right direction (food-wise that is). Sounds like a nice time and way to get me over there for this event. I've always avoided it LOL.

    Sounds like fun, I am sorry I will be out of town.
