Looked like everyone was having a good time, despite the weather.

Temps got as cold as 58-60* and yet the turnout of people was very impressive and looked like they all were having fun despite the rain on Friday night, with the cold temps, and cloudy skies during Saturday and Sunday. Lots of cool looking equipment showed up and contiued to roll in.

Seems like everyone had their campfires, and grills going pretty well Saturday at dusk with eveyone sitting around and talking about the events of the day. It looked as if the entire Brower Park campsite was full and it still looked like it was just as busy as last year when the weather was great. I saw Wette Vette, and several of his friends, and many others I knew or recognized. I got there around 1pm Saturday and headed back home Sunday evening and it didn't rain during that time. Most of us only live within about a 1 hour drive or so....JimV, Blue Moon, Mr. Gadgets, Articfriends, myself and about 4-5 other boats were some of the very last to leave Brower Park---by that time Brower Park looked like a ghost town. Had a great time!

By the way, I couldn't believe Articfriends/Smitty and his wife---it's a 2-3 hours drive for them and were still there until we all left around 5pm or so Sunday---they are some true DIE HARD boaters!

It was cold and wet, but still a lot of fun!! And Sunday alot of people left due to the weather.. The sun never did break out. But still in all a good weekend. I met up with a lot of friends and met new ones! I want to especially thank Smitty and Jen for feeding me Saturday nite!! Very nice! Not only does Smitty bring the hard ware when it comes to boats, but the grill also!!
There were some people I didnt get to talk to and some faces I didnt recall, but that is the penalty for getting old!! Sorry if I my recall was not up to par..
Sunday there was some fun on the water, I will try to attach some pics.. They were long shots, but still tells that we stuck it out despite the weather..

Thanks everyone for a Great Time!
Dick
