Bob,
5:00 will be fine with us as our hotel is very close.  Guest..?  Bride??? Ahha, clues to the mystery.
 
Good to hear from you Jason!  Our best to you and Janet.  We will keep your invite in mind...when it is warmer though.

Great to "hear" from you JT. -10 eh, sounds pretty cold. Even here in suburban Philly it got real chilly. When I left my S-I-L and B-I-L around 1am it was 7 degrees and I thought that was cold. When Princess Goldie wanted out about 5:30am it was FOUR degrees! Thank goodness for the good old pellet stove. And the heat pump actually worked down to 6 degrees without the "emergency" heat coming on.

Attenzione amici!   Due to the nearly unanimous vote, the time of the infamous 2018 Mid Winter Gathering has been changed to 1700 hours local with the venue being the Wharfside in Point Pleasant Beach. I will personally visit the joint to pick out a table near the water...and away from most of the other patrons so as to lesson the possibility of us all getting arrested. Some of us tend to get a bit...ahem...loud!! Oh yeah, the date remains the same: 1/20/2018.

My sincere apologies, but I am being shipped To France that night for work.

I promise to raise a rum grog at Newark airport for the festivities.  I work in Normandy, small little port infested with sailboats, and no ice, but cold North Sea water.

Ellen is due to ship out to St  Croix for her next FEMA deployment that monday.

I will do best to make it for the Virginia gathering in Feb.  tough winter

Hey Brian, sounds like a winter of being pulled many directions for your family. We will be at a music event at the same time so let's raise a glass together at 1700 in support of our fellow Compacteers. Hope you will be able to find your way down to Virginia for the February event. Right now there is no sailing happening down here, as the marinas are all frozen up! Not normal Virginia.  :)

Brian that is the lamest excuse I've ever heard of! But we're a forgiving bunch here and promise not to roast you too much at the CBMWG!
Here is the latest headcount, as I understand it:

Me and the Admiral ('bout time she showed up for something)
Commodore Kevin and Lesa aka Mrs. Rollin' Bowline.
Marty and Barbara. Marty has recently started a rigging business.
?? and ?? from ??
?? from NJ
Allen and Suzie. Please everyone bring your sunglasses just in case Allen totes his anchor along with him.
Larry and Lexi. Are you there, L&L? Hope you can make it!

On top of this cast of thousands, there's a good chance that there could be a surprise at this years MWG the likes of which the world has never seen before, nor will ever see again!

On a misc note: Please remember that this MWG, the NJ one, is the original and best MWG in existence anywhere in the Northern Hemisphere. Often imitated, never duplicated!!

1/20/2018 1700 hours local at the Wharfside in Point Pleasant Beach, NJ.

L & L will be split into just 1 L.
Lexi will be with girls at a dance competition, but I'll be there. 
I technically that makes it roughly 32.6% of L&L there since Lexi would be the 'better half'.

I'm likely a no. Wife has a planned event so I'll have to raise a glass while watching Moana with the baby.

Mas,

That drink will be hoisted at 17hr.

Reighman ,

At some point we should discuss our Siren 17 adventures.  That boat was kinda the alternate universe ComPac.  She loved having rail buried and was never
Completely
Upright.

It was a blast to sail in heavy weather, but without the safe
 Compac tolerance.

The moment I step on it (in water) I knew it wasn't the boat for us. I have to make it to the BBB this season.

Oh Larry we're so sorry to hear this. All our thoughts and prayers are for you and your family at this time. At the gathering, we'll take a moment of silence for her and for you. Again, our sincere condolences.
