Just returned from Lake Norman, NC and boy was it worth it (780 miles RT from central KY).

We had 4 boats and 9 attendees.

The weather was disgustingly nice, sunny, hot and 84. The water was warm, upper 70's but refreshing after a swim.

Several people reached out to say they were disappointed to miss us but look forward to next year. Our local host, Tom Greco is looking at dates.....
