I think almost everyone is staying there, except those with campers. Should be a great crowd! Looking forward to seeing everybody again.

Just back from another US vacation and already missing the country(boy I wish I could find a way around that hard immigration law), so maybe if I can find the funds I'm coming over also, is there a list of who's coming?

I'm a 'probably'. If my work situation allows, I will be there.

I've got a room reserved, but I may have a conflict in my schedule.

Hey guys! It's been three years since I completed the Phantom 16 and it's holding up great. Life has been very busy for me, but every once in a while, I am able check the forum to see how everyone is doing. I just returned from a scalloping trip this weekend and saw that you are all going to Homosassa in October. Ironically, we were walking around Riverside Resort on our trip and the place will be great for a builder's meet. There are a couple of bars within walking distance and a live band on weekends at MacRae's next door.

Anyway, I booked a room for the meet. I am really looking forward to seeing all of you and sharing fish stories again :wink:

Scalloping trip July 25th - Phantom 16 three miles out of Homosassa/Crystal River in about 5 feet of water. Seas were mostly calm but a thunderstorm on the way back produced 2 -3 foot waves. The ride in the Phantom was a bit rough but she can really take a beating:
