I just looked at the map of the main event site. The "bar" is at the head of the "CD" dock, and across from the engine tent. See you all there around 4:00 on Sat.

Greetings,
Just to confirm. The bar is sponsored by Gosling's Rum. Four o'clock is past my nap time but I'll make every effort to attend. Don't know which hat I'll be wearing.

It's past my nap time, too. But since I'll be spending the night in the area (rather than making the 3 hour trip to Merritt Island that night), I think I can hack it.

Does anybody have an idea what time the shuttles to the area parking lots stop running?

You'll be the guy wearing the Groucho glasses, right?

And yes, it's the rum place. I've never been in, but assume they serve both soft and hard drinks.

Will stop by but will be around 2:00. First day was successful, went speeding through it but will slow down tomorrow and check more stuff out.

I hadn't heard of him until today either. Nice guy, knows anchors. As I understand it he manufactured Rocnas when they were made in Canada. Now he works for Canada Metal.

Greetings,
OK, we're in town. Have to make some breakfast, have another 6 cups of coffee (I hope there are lots of toilet facilities), pack my glasses (Groucho's of course), hail a cab and get through the gate. A former TF member was kind enough to give us some gate passes. Thanks RickB.
And we're off, like a bride's nighty! Back's in bad shape so I hope I last until the 16:00 hrs piss-up.

Ft. Lauderdale boat show

I'll be there today with one of my uncles and a cousin. I'll be wearing my Oliver shirt, so if you see me flag me down and say hi.

Now if I can just find where I left my shoes....

I'm going to bail out. Saw what I need to see, so starting the trip home early. Sorry I'll miss everyone.

Post pictures if you can.

I'm not coming

Can't justify the hotel rates, don't trust myself to not drink too much at the bar, and don't wanna sleep in the car.

Enjoy ya'll!
