Who is in? I will of course be there weather permitting on Saturday and probably Sunday, Monday is always a possibility so is Tuesday...

Seriously who will be out in Tampa Bay area and wants to hang out at Beercan on Saturday? Beercan is at the Longboat pass inlet in case you did not know. I know Len, Margit, Me, Laurie, and BT will be there as usual. This is not a rendzvous, just a hanging out kinda deal for locals and anyone else who wants to attend.

That holds true in congested areas like Ft lauderdale or NJ but by me it is just another sunny afternoon. People in Manatee county for some reason do not give a hoot about Memorial Day or Labor Day...the 4th can be a zoo however.

Then again Janis did make the Homo trip so miracles do happen. Look for the giant Whaler flag....or just my ugly Revenge.

Anyone considering a Carolina get together? I'm doing Mount Dora and won't be in Fla. for awhile. My dads house has been gutted of furniture, but is spotless, waiting for a renter with furniture. Less than two hours from Charlestown and less than six or so hours from Bradenton. Plenty of parking. Bring your own CRAP! zot, standing by.

I just realized Len, Brian and I have a wedding on Saturday to attend so Beercan is most likely moved to Sunday...unless we bag the wedding of course but who can pass up free booze?

Actually a mutual friend and we can get to the wedding by boat...could be fun. The last excuse I used of yours was something about a hurricane or my father fixing my rain gutters or...

Could be fun to see how many times a bride can be insulted by a groom at a wedding;o]

Len,

I can't make the wedding, plus wasn't invited, but maybe the christening, assuming that you and Bigshot put in a good word. LOL

I will be back, likely not till next winter though. I generally don't stray too far from The Bay once boating season starts. Snowed a bit this week, so spirng is not progressing as i would have liked.

I am about to make my annual call to my marina to invite them to put my boat on the ice then call me when it is floating.

I had a great time at Christmas and will provide more notice next time in hopes that we can circle the wagons. I would really enjoy meeting some of you guys/clowns. Plus I am always partial to multiple beverages on a sunny day on the beach with boats involved.

Seeing/ beaching my [rental] boat at Beercan at Christmas was a bit of a Pilgrimage as I have read about it on this sight for a couple of years. Just wasn't the same however without some of the usal suspects to drink with.

Jeez, can't even keep this one near the top of the list. I'm sorry I can't make this one as I have to lick a few stamps that weekend. What lame excuses people have for not running their boats, standing under a bridge and drinking mass quatities of beer. In truth, I really do regret not being able to attend. Plus I would like to see Len's (an86carrera) new Etec rocket ship.

I think you are looking for wuss.

Woos is seeking affection from with intent to romance. If that’s your intention, I’m definitely not coming. I don’t need to see that.

I am trying to make it but no definite plans yet, depends on weather and what life throws at me this week.

Dunno...depends on weather I guess. Was thinking about maybe crashing at my parents place Sat night since they went back to NJ. Water is turned off though.

We're a no show again. To much stuff going on. Have to be at a birthday party for a friend Sunday night. Oh boy, party at Red Lobster, what a way to spend a holiday weekend. Catch you guys next time.

Chris
King of the wussies.

Ya know I wonder why I bother anymore! I think GCBWOA might just slither into the deep....nobody cares or even shows up anyway! Me and Len will just hang out..ya'll can figure the rest out. The east coast gig got NO responses, etc...I'm retiring.

Chris I still love ya even though you excuse list is longer than LHG's bullshit list!....I mean BC's shareholder's inside information list.

Lighten up Francis!

It was a holiday weekend.

Families gather on holiday weekends

Whaler weekends don't trump that.

retire if you want, but the rendezvous will continue.
and, hell, I may even show up! :)

Myakka...there has not been any action for the last 4 or 5 gigs(2 years). 13 boats signed up for homosassa I think 6 showed which was not bad but the non show uppers never even chimed in to say why they flaked, some even paid for a room. It is a lot of work to get one of these going believe it or not. Beercan I could care less about, it was just an everyday gig and I know it was a holiday. I really thought some locals would have showed up since they were out and about anyway.

My point is I am not going to bother anymore. I will post a date and place and see who comes. If attendance does not improve in the next couple tries, it is over.

I did come by there to Beercan (Longboat Pass/Jewfish Key) around 1:30-2:00 to look for people. I didn't see any Whalers there, but I did see quite a few out and about on other hangouts.....

Sorry B...Len and I were a LITTLE hungover from the wedding. Finally made it there about 1pm on MONDAY!
