Clara's back in her room. Got a thorough rinsing just east of Okeechobee. Was super awesome to see everyone and Reuben's boat, which is fantastico! Clara and Red Alert need to see each other more frequently...

Sorry so many of you missed it. Such a cool community to have become part of.

It was great meeting you all and seeing the boats of Capeman and AA. I still have a plenty to learn :roll:. I had a great time.
The hamburgers and peach cobbler was amazing.

Just wanted to say THANK YOU to everyone who attended the Meet this year. I know it was a challenging year with everything going on in the country. Sorry we missed a few of you who had to cancel due to unforeseen circumstances, but there is always next year!
The food was great, definitely have to mention the peach cobbler, venison chili, and the Mango/key lime pie!!! Always great to see the boats that make it to the meet! Clara is looking great after her recent paint job. Bare Bones came out really nice and Ruben did a fantastic job on the OB15! Gino, it was nice to finally put a face to a name, glad you made the trip from TX!

Jeff and I got a few minutes to chat with Aripeka Angler and discuss some options for next year. Hope to have all of this COVID stuff behind us so we see everyone next year!!!

Take care,
Reid
