Great going all.

I wish I could have made it, but I had family from out of state over at the beach for a gathering.

Miss you Alison. What a great cause....celebrating Alison and raising money for nautical scholarships. Well done Garth, Family & Friends.

I had a great time Saturday, and got to catch up with a lot of people I haven't seen in a while. Several people I hoped to see didn't make it, but maybe next year. I did manage to bump into the two fellas below, and get a picture with them.

For me, it's about remembering Alison, and contributing to her fund, but winning a couple raffle prizes was nice too.

Thank you to everyone on the committee for doing all you did to organize the event, and make it happen.

Re: Chum Bucket......There's too much gross #*&! in those picture threads; I can't look at them. Doing so scars my soul.
