March 22nd we will be doing ANOTHER Tampa Bay rendezvous. This one will be better than the last 2....if that is possible. Where would we like to meet? Seems we have more attendees from the North than south so what about Shell Key again? Either same place or just on the north side of Bunce's pass. There is a boat ramp just inside the where we will meet. I'll bring the keg again.

Like a great whaler, you can count on me!
We better get our shirt order in early ;)
If our party turns into a soire', we could camp out on the last island out of FT Desoto..... The weather should be perfect, as usuall, afterall us cool people live in Florida.

I think a camping trip would be fun. The weather is just about right. Camp fire, and chance to sleep off the excess beverages ;) . Iím game for a trip sooner than March. I would even bring the guitar.

The new whaler is at the dealership and should be rigged and ready tomorrow. I am ready to give it a go. Swellmonster is expected to be down in Englewood this weekend and we have plans on getting together. I want to take him around the area and stop at some of the watering holes. So Nick if you are not doing anything this weekend then come on down. That goes for anyone else that would like to join us.
Other than that I have an open calendar. A camping trip would be fun.

I'm in. Short of a major event like not waking up that morning will be there. Had hoped to meet up last weekrnf but a prior commitment killed that. Kinda windy for a fifteen. Has anyone done the Caya Costa, Pine Island area?

I am doing this one a Sunday this time. Why because Monday is a holiday and a few of the members here work on saturdays. So Sunday January 19th is the day. Monday is Martin Luther King Day. Shell Key but which side? Where we went last year or the North side of Bunce's pass(easier to get to)? Who is bringing the beer?

Fellas, don't forget about the Gasparilla Boat parade the first saturday of February. IMO this is the biggest boating extravaganza of the year. You may want to back your get together back a couple of weeks.

phatwhaler out.

Hell I'll do both! What else am I gonna do on Sunday Jan. 19th? Might as well be on the boat with some BEER!
Swellmonster posted 12-10-2002 03:01 PM ET (US)     Profile for Swellmonster  Send Email to Swellmonster     
Nick, I'll bring the first 3 cases of beer!

Bill,
I was just down in InHerNets turf and I went down to Cayo Costa and went to Cabbage Key. Funny that you mentioned this, Don and I toyed with the idea of renting the cabins down there for a weekend sometime in the future...

That is gonna be a lot of Beer if only us Pat. Bill are you coming? Who else?
InHerNet posted 12-10-2002 03:15 PM ET (US)     Profile for InHerNet  Send Email to InHerNet     
I'm in! I will throw in 3 more cases.
Bigshot posted 12-11-2002 10:32 AM ET (US)     Profile for Bigshot  Send Email to Bigshot     
Well we better get some more people with 6 cases or we better bring tents and food and a stomach pump for the alcohol poisoning. Maybe an I.V for the morning:)

Bigshot. You gotta be kidding. Does a bear s*** in the woods? Have three cases in the laundry room. How much can a 15 hold? For those of you who haven't been there Gasparilla is a zoo. On land or sea. Every bozo boater shows up. Rules of the road? What right of way? Shell will probably be quiet on Jan 19. Keep us posted.

Swellmonster. Lived in Ft. Myers in the early seventies. Great boating then. Pretty crowded now. The guy that owned Cabbage Key would let us sack on the island when we got to drunk to drive. Caya Costa as you know is just a good swim away. Think tent camping is allowed. Don't know where you park a boat as it has been so long since I was there. A good area for a rendezvous? Any Whalerroos in that area?

I'll be at shell on the 19th about 10-11am weather permitting of course. Don't care how cold it is, just can't do small craft warning or rain. Anotherwords Pat, if it is like the day you came to my house.....forgetaboutit! So far we have always picked good weather for the rendezvous. Last time at shell it was pretty rough but not horrible. The day at beercan was pretty nice.

I just got back from the whole sale store and bought some pork tenderloins. Now that I think about it, they must have been missmarked, at .89 a pound, guess what I'm taking to the party? Might as well throw in some 1/2 pans of beans and rice too!
Bigshot posted 12-30-2002 04:22 PM ET (US)     Profile for Bigshot  Send Email to Bigshot     
Sure...just don't throw them in the sand....AGAIN!

Would love to come but I'm in the middle of a major console/seat rebuild and probably won't have it done by then. With March and April being the two windiest months, I'm shooting for May.

I'll try to organize a cruise up the St. Johns or something.

Smirkless :-(

If it is still the 19th. of Jan. I think we can make it. How about some clarification of the details. Just where, when, what to bring besides mucho cervezas.

Sundays weather is gunna be around upto 60.
Since our Bucs did well last week, how about a trip mod?
How about meeting at the regular shell key and get the boats to cruise upto Johns Pass and watch the 1:00 PM Bucs gate at Gators?
