Yeah you got me Ted . I always use the same lame excuse for not going anywhere. We definitely need to get out more. I could get off work more often but I just don’t for some weird reason.

Sounds like a good idea Dave.

I spoke to Brenda at Ft. Pierce City Marina yesterday and she informed me that those who have sent in their request for a slip will have then together (we can take over the dock). Ted is being moved to a different marina, I suggested St. Augustine might be far enough away but his glow at night will still be seen.

Irv, since many have made their own reservations, I suggest that each phone the marina to make their own. Dean's idea to hold them to send in as a batch seems to be not working. Getting this bunch together is worse than herding cats.

Don

Are you laying the groundwork for a raise?

I agree, when you call the marina ask for Brenda (800-619-1780) as she knows about our group (I guess anyone could help) and she is getting us all on the same dock (except for Ted, of course) but I would suggest they also inform you so we can have a count. Watfa will cook for everyone but she will need a count to get groceries and booze (and sippy cups).

Looking forward to another great time.

Thanks Don.

Nope, on the street dock this time. I am coming to Ft Pierce for 3 months this year to properly train and recover from this cosmic event.

And no, Don isn't having me as cabin boy in training to take over. I am too much the shock collar type for herding cats.

Scott Don’s boy in Training is Larry with Leana to make sure he doesn’t screw up. Street dock, are you saying that Very Slow Hand has scared you off again?

Greetings,
Mr. B. Nope. NOT a cat person. https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/...study/1873871/


One of many reasons...

Not sure Larry could ever be anyone's boy ....

Ted is a gentleman and fine yacht owner... I would never dock close enough where my boat could absorb some of that shine.

RT. I guess we will have to get a bunch of us to kidnap you and bring you to Ft Pierce (Don says you don’t have to help with the cats) and we will even feed and ply you with booze.

RT. For a week before the gathering you better sleep with one eye open and a gun under your pillow.

I have a credibility issue. Iíve promised to make this gathering twice and failed miserably both times. BUT this time Iím gonna make it. Unlike the past years, this time Iím already on the correct coast and not too far away in Cocoa. I stopped at Ft. Pierce Municipal Marina on my way here so I think I might be able to find my way back there. I already have a sippy cup so no special arrangements need be made. Will gladly allow Scot Free to be used as a glare absorber as found necessary to mitigate the effect of inconsiderate owners who show up with an overly shiny boat. Iím good like that.

McGill. You’ll fit in just fine and Scott will appreciate you kind offer to absorb Ted’s shine (he has to protect his N V for the helio after hours). Ted’s boat is like those giant searchlights that are directed into the shy to attract customers, people come from miles and your stepping up to block Ted’s shine. Nice.

McG. Great the more the merrier, Dons taxi will be working overtime (be sure to tip the driver). Watfa loves to cook so if the group keeps growing she may need to borrow Lena’s oven again this year and Ted’s ice cubes (our new machine is doing great).

Now read this!

OK, guys and gals now you've done it. I got a note from the marina to call Ann. I was being called on the carpet. Instead of me assembling all the reservations, and turning the in as a group, you guys had been calling one by one.

Ann explained to me the rules for boat clubs. I said that any resemblance to a boat club by this group would be purely accidental. We have no structure, and no leader. It's just a group of friends that get together in February for a long weekend. This is before everyone going back up north. I don't think she showed a full understanding of my analogy of "herding cats".

We decided that half or more had made their reservation, so the rest can make their reservations directly with the marina. Ask for Brenda or Ann, and please follow their instructions.
