- Majorgator
- Dawngad
- Cracker larry
- Chopperman
- Topwater
- Aripeka Angler
- Capeman
- Doc Dyer
- Jacques
- Ken Owens
- Smokeymountain
- dborecky (maybe)

This list looks pretty good to me. 12 groups, some with family in tow...maybe 30-40 people or so?

Craig, I know that some of the rooms have full kitchens, but I don't know who all got what room. The one we reserved has an efficiency kitchen, I think. We can pre-make a few things and bring with us or eat at the attached restaurant. The restaurant is a decent seafood kinda place with the typical variety of "fresh" catch of the day (right off the Sysco truck) :lol:

I forgot Smokeymountain and usually Derek shows up, he lives close and will probably be there.
Yes, nice crowd.
I'll leave the office around lunch time and should be there in time for Happy Hour!

BTW, I forgot something.
I reserved a site for my 5th wheel at Camp N Water and I get dockage for one boat included in the price. It is very close to the meeting (less than 1,000 ft) but there is a canal in between. If anybody needs a dock for the week-end, you can have it.

Our room is supposed to have a full kitchen, not sure what that means exactly, but we can do some cooking in it if we want to :D

I think I'll bring my little CL6 seafood catering boat, maybe we can set it up somewhere and pile it with seafood. I need some marketing pictures anyway.

Many have reserved from Thursday until Sunday. Saturday is usually the bets time to see the boats, when they come back from the morning fishing trips.
