Hey! Who you calling Epic! okay...I gained a few pounds, but Epic?!! :roll:

Really looking forward to seeing everyone, and it's been many, many, years since I've been to Homassassa.

Hey Seth,

Looking forward to seeing you again :D :D

We didn't do so good scalloping. We only went out for a few hours in about 4-5 feet of water, about 3 miles south of the last Crystal River channel marker. It it was slim pickins'. It was mainly a first time out adventure to get a feel for scalloping. We have the last weekend in July booked at MacRae's next year, so we'll have all weekend to scout out the activity and hopefully fill our limits :D

Hello Richard,
So glad to hear Sandi is doing well, I really wish we could go to the meet and see all that are attending, looks like it’s going to be a good one, it’s just so close to hunting season and I’ll be heading north on most weekends tromping through the woods, it would almost be worth the trip though just to see Larry’s custom Rogerdog Boat!
You guy’s will have fun and still hope to see y’all again soon!

I am saddened to say that Robin and I won't be able to make it to this meet. I will be in job transition and the timing just doesn't work out. Have a great time, Wish I was there...
