TF Gathering in SE Florida 2020

By popular demand (at. Least one or more), it’s that time again. Some people lead dull lives in exotic places, and need entertainment. There has been a thread by Menzies discussing a flotilla to the Bahamas. Would you like to tie that in with our gathering?

There has been one member for personal reasons has asked to have the gathering date moved to April 1st. That may work well with a flotilla to the Bahamas.

What do you guys and gals think about the date?

Greetings,
Will most of the former attendees be out on parole by then? Will ANY?

The question might be: Border protection being the way that it is, with such a large contingent of TF thugs finally out of US waters, would they let us back in?

Depends on the dates. I was never charged, so I'm good to go.

"Us"?
Is 2020 the year that Bucky comes to the East coast? Don't take this the wrong way, but Cardude01 is puttin you to shame in the cruising department. I mean come on, the guy has a sailboat and he's cruising circles around you. Time to ascend to the pilothouse and show us what you've got.

I'm good with anything between February and April. Happy to go from Fort Pierce to the Bahamas or down to Irv's house until it's time to cross.

I’ll throw my hat into the ring. No idea when I’ll be where, but maybe.

My suggestion was for 2021, but if others want to arrange a 2020 trip of course that's fine. Our Bahamas trip needs to be in June - July next year.

Hopefully the 2020 gathering can be arranged so the maximum of participants can enjoy.

I was thinking about allowing those to attend by invitation only. Most any dates are good for me, in the past we tried to do it near the Miami Boat Show thinking some boats may be in the area for that but it’s a very few if any so any dates are OK.

RT. Your coming this year!!!

Hey Irv.... certainly understand the crowd may get too big for open boat invites like you, Larry and The BIG Don all have had in the past.


Maybe if we could pair boat slips better, but at some point, something less than what the magical Watfa and all produces is also great. Lena and Larry and Lou and Don too have shouldered more than their fair share.


Invitaions????...heck, I would be the first voted off the island.

Scott. Your grandfathered in. No problem.

Last year Watfa cooked for 30 which was a big imposition on her, she would like to limit her food guest to 30 or less. Don’t get me wrong, she loves cooking and entertaining.

I'm interested if the dates don't conflict with my daughter's wedding in late May...(if I'm invited, of course).

Make your plans with Jack (Steve) for your famous 70s porn scene room. Invitation being sent, wait for it.
