Ok we are on for this sunday the 19th at shell key just north of Eggmont, west of Ft Desoto at Bunce's pass. Don, Pat, Bill C, FNO, Myself, a couple friends, have stepped up and are good to roll. Question I have is who else is interested? Does the fact that the Bucs actually made it to the 2nd playoff game keeping you from coming? The game has been changed to 3 or 4 pm from 1pm so that may be enough incentive for some. I personally could care less and we could always bring a TV.

I say we get there early like 9-10am. Being January we have to pack up for home by 4pm or so anyway being it is dark by 6 or so. Should we set up a timeframe? What I mean is we monitor the weather etc and go from there and make a decision say Saturday? I want some input asap though. We do these to have fun so if going to the game is more fun, I do not want people to think they are obligated. Plus if it is small craft warning and 50 degrees out....I aint going across Tampa bay, etc. Let's talk kids. My # is 800-247-3011 or 941-545-3808 or e-mail me.

Weather is supposably NOT going to cooperate with us this Sunday. I talked to Frank(fno) last night and he agrees that we decide on Saturday. Please check this thread by noon on saturday for an update and decision. I have no plans for Sunday so if it is calm and not freezing I may still run out there because I am jonesing for a ride. I doubt I will stay much longer than 2pm though if it is cold. We will have to postpone until mid March or late Feb. Any ideas or thoughts????

nope! I am more nervous of SCW or GFW personally. You can always stay warm in the sun but not if it is blowing 15kts. Check in by noon saturday or call me by 9am sunday. I am more worried about fno and inhernet being they have to trailer. If I get to the bay and it is sloppy, no big deal for me to turn around and drink beer. Anotherwords if it is like the day you came over....forgetaboutit!

I can't tell with this weather....how about you guys post whether or not you want to go or call me on my cell and let me know.

North...even when I lived in Trenton, I never liked the Eagles. I think it was because of Dick Vermeil. Actually I don't care for football or Philly very much. I do like cheese steaks though. Down here I might wind up "missing" if I went with Philly.

The Eagles don't play in New Jersey, except when they come north to get defeated by the Giants.

And we are New Jerseyans, and like Big Shot I like Philly cheesesteaks, and I also like Scrapple

Hey, those of us form anywhre south of Trenton are part of Philly. Trenton is sort of a dividing line--north of ther is NYC!

Vermeil a god down here.

Weather is SHONGO! My canal is empty....real low tide. I can see my breath....no freakin way am I going out on a boat.....under 30' without heat.

Let's try for the Gasparilla festival on 2/1 or whatever. Let's let this thread die and go to the gasparilla thread. I'll set up another rendezvous at Shell key for March or April so we can swim, etc so MARK your calendars.

Go Bucs!
