Hey, at least you took it of the twins. I wanted to get Nick and Corey when they ROLLED by me but I couldnít get to my phone that quick. btw sorry for bailing on you all for the raft up, but I really didnít feel like getting wet. We ran back, loaded the boat, backed it in the garage, and the skies opened up.

I wouldnít worry about bailing, lotta guys did- and I donít blame them. Rain doesnít bother me that bad, I just pulled the carpet and threw it in the bow. I took 4 pics and theyíre all of the bow of my boat while itís pouring down after SCT and I got backed into the slip.

Would have been nice if the weather cooperated more and we could have made the run to Harmon, but thatís the way it goes some years.

I said itíd be nice to not drive home hungover when Becky and I got there Thursday... well Sunday morning came and that didnít happen. Lol

I'll tell ya'll what, if you decided not to come because of the weather report, you really messed up!!! We ended up having awesome weather except for one mid day shower on Saturday. Any other time it rained was in the evening or overnight when the boats were already tucked away into their covered slips. Even with the attendance down a little due to the forecast, we still had an awesome rally!!! What a blast!!! It was great to finally meet SCT in person, he's as nice in person as you would expect, and a lot of us, myself included, have found our Checkmates in his craigslist thread. Thanks for making the trip up Shannon. Hopefully we didn't scare you off and you'll want to come back, especially to show off the classic mate of yours!!! My wife took some pics, and I stole some others off of Facebook that I'll share.

My wife and I showed up Thursday evening and had one of the most beautiful sunset cruises I have ever experienced on Cumberland. This really set the tone for what was to be an awesome weekend...





Woke up Friday morning and shook the cobwebs loose from a little partying the night before and took off for a little cruise and then ended up rafting up at the local rope swing. The rope brought out the inner 12 year old in all of us, so we couldn't resist. I for one was feeling it the next few days but it was totally worth it!!!







A few more people started trickling in Friday night and we had another great time on the docks!!! Then Saturday morning rolled around and mother nature gave us another beautiful day for the lunch run to Cumberland Tap at Jamestown Marina. Had a blast running with everybody to and from the restaurant and its always great to catch up with past attendees and meet new ones!!!

Saturday evening, we were finally greeted by some rain as we came back into the docks. But as that cleared, we were greeted by some of natures beauty.






All in all, it was another awesome weekend!!! If you missed it, don't make the same mistake next year as we will be doing it all again!!! Hope to see ya there!!!
