Could the boat builder's meet be close to your warehouse? - after you get settled

It would be great to see your operation.

Maybe get a few supplier's lined up one day to do demo's and Q and A? - social, learning and fishing....................

Ken enjoy the time you have with your wife. COPD is not pleasant. I have first stage and have a CPAP machine I use at night. Fifty years smoking and I finally quit 3 years ago. Probably to late. Well praying for you guys and hoping your move will be fruitful with your family

What about going to the same place as last year and keep it simple? Folks bring their boats, food, and drinks. That was easy and really a neat place.

Cape Man good call.
Would be close to the new BBC place to see it. And this time I will have a boat to show! (just don't look to closely at the fairing job!) 8)

Cape man,

I think we are going to try and get the same set up as last year. We really liked the setup with the cabin on the water and it is within 40 mins of our new shop so if anyone wanted to come see the new facility they can certainly do so. I will try and book something soon.

Cape Man,

Sorry if there was any confusion but I posted the other day that we were not going to be able to put something together this October. We have so much going on with the build out and move to the new location. I did actually call the River Palms Cottages (where we were last year) and they were totally booked up for October and most of November. Jeff and I were thinking of trying to put together the Builder's Meet in May at the River Palms. On a side note, I think the water will be cleaner due to the Army Corps not dumping Lake O as much during the winter months.

Let me know your thoughts, we definitely want you guys to join us!!!

Reid,

Spring works great, it is actually preferable. Us college football fans have a tough time making it in October. Good Luck with the move!
