Good chatting with you tonight. I will be glad to help out at the docks when all the boats come in to Bayfront. Let me know if there is anything else you need.
capnate , Nate is in charge of all that will be happening at Bayfront and he will set you up. Your experience around boats will be a great asset.
Nor Tech and Terry Sobo are making 2 seats available in the beautiful 36' cat pictured here. Terry will be the pace boat in the " Big Dog " class.
I will add it to the auction list as item number 13.
What an opportunity to have the best seat in the house. You will be in the first boat to arrive at Bayfront, Naples. [ all boats to remain behind paceboats ] As well, you will be supporting Jennifers future. Win, win, win.
Minimum bid $ 500.00 for the pair. Who will start the bidding ?
The bidding for seats on the Benefit Run that have been donated by myself, Larry Jones in "Masquerade" and Terry's cat will close at 9PM EST on Mon. Jan. 29th to allow time for the winners to make travel arrangements.
