Len,
I think Nick was talking about first or second week in April. We already have a trip planned to St Augustine in April so a second trip to Florida in a two week span would be out for me. Would love to come in late Feb or March. I will see what progresses with the thread.

April 3rd.

Too early to start a thread, will start one in a couple weeks officially. Feel free to comment or ask questions here in the mean time. I of course will be taking down the whole hotel so we have enough rooms for everyone. Again, this is important, they sell out fast and I can't hold till the last minute so make up your minds now and reserve a room when I post the info. YOU can always cancel, you can't however get a romm that is not vacant. Local places are double the price so try not to go that route either.

Hey kids...the 3rd is Easter Weekend....still game or the 10th?

The 10th works for me. If you talk to the hotel, let me know. I will book immediately.

We're flying in late afternoon the 3rd, staying at Long Boat Key one week, some place Ellen picked out. Not to mess up your vibe but the 4th would be a fun day.

Always a saturday....we'll make it the 10th I guess.

April 4th...?The crew was just talking about it this weekend. We're in.

The 4th is Easter Sunday...hence why we are moving it to the 10th. For some Easter weekend might not be bad but I imagine most want to spend it at home with their family.

I for one could be there friday afternoon on Easter weekend. But I understand many others have family stuff to do. Since I was found under a rock that is not a problem for me.

The first weekend in April would be best for Lois and I. One way or another I've got to get the flag back so it can be passed on.

I really don't want to try and do this on a holiday weekend. Getting rooms might be harder and more $$, getting the "family" people to go is going to be tougher, and it might be more crowded on the water, etc. I say we stick with the 10th unless a bunch are against it which so far nobody seems to be. The only other is March 20th but everyone bitches it is too cold so hence why I moved it up.

I'm looking at taking my first vacation day April 10th. Would like to arrive Thurs. (8th) and leave Sunday or Monday. Gotta place to stay in Hernando Beach or would enjoy coming further south if anyone is up for some pre-game. This one looks like a go for me and I believe I'll be flying solo with 15 in tow. zot.

Did I miss the itinerary, memo or Greater Ellenton NewsFlash? Sorry for interrupting your Black Panthers Party...Forrest, Forrest Gump.

Your right it could happen that way. I gave up gasparilla because we had a vip luncheon for clarence thomas today. Howevever its always a good time up on the river and hope to do it!! I better book a room now!

We don't need rooms we'll just sleep on Len's new cabin cruiser

Rooms are a LOT cheaper than the gas for twin 454's from his house to Homo.

I will be starting a formal thread next week after I speak with MacRae's, etc. I will also be sending out GCBWOA e-mails so if you are NOT on the list or have changed your e-mail, give me a shout. Again for out of towners...you do NOT "need" to bring a boat to attend. We have plenty of room on other boats and the river is a no speed zone for the most part. The boating on this rendezvous is interesting but not exactly thrilling. The rendezvous itself is what makes it such a success along with the Manatees.

So far looks like the usual suspects:
Frank & Sandy, Stefan, Swellmonster, Janis & friend(s), Len & Margit, Me & Laurie. I hope to see Zotcha, Contender, and Nauti there. I am sorry for Joe & Pete but dates are tough to accomodate everyone. You can HOWEVER give Len & I a call when you ARE down here to hang out Beercan style. If the weather remains like it has been since New Years, we are gonna be REAL happy we moved it out a few weeks.

Sorry to say Nick, if I can't get out of this party you have a better shot at seeing DL there this year. Trying everything and it ain't workin'. zot.

No problem but asking somebody from SC to attend a bachelor party in NY should be pretty easy to forgive the guy for not attending due to demographics and the fact that you will need to be there the folowwing week or so to attend the wedding(I assume you were invited). Lastly...who plans a BP 3 months in advance? Must be some hell of a party.

I might as well bail out early and take my hits now. We already have a camping trip planned April 9-11. (new excuse I haven't used yet I think)

Congradulations Len. Margit's gotta love it. Nice yatchet.

Looks like I will not make it either. Will have to settle for Beercan another weekend. Looking forward to getting back there, for a four day weekend. Best of luck with the new endeavor. zotcha.

Frank,

That crap will not be taking up space in my fridge. For that matter he might not take up space on my boat either if he doesn't bring REAL beer;o]

Nauti, give Len a break!!! The unthinkable has happened and took us all by surprise. While I think that we should have been given 6 months notice that Nick was going to stop drinking and smoking, I am sure he would have dismissed the silly idea with a few moments of careful consideration and still be throwing them down and lighting up today. I have it on good authority that Len's first major modification to the new boat is a Kegerator so we have our refreshments ready and waiting.

Hey just kidding Len a bit bout his gorgeous new boat.(envious) I think it's great that Nick is trying out a little different lifestyle. If he can have a beer or two and quit that's great. I so wish I could do that but unfortunately I could never say enough...just more. Good luck with the smoking and drinking Nick.

10 days...no problem yet!

Len that fridge won't hold all the beer I'm gonna bring come March when I start again(no smoking though).
